Would this beast work as a hackintosh once NVIDIA Pascal drivers are available for macOS?

Intel Core i7-6700 quadcore, NVIDIA GTX 1080 8GB, M.2 & SATA-3, 2 RAM slots… all packed into a silent (watercooled) compact black box (22. 5 × 20.3 × 12.8 cm). What a monster!

I know the NVIDIA 1080 is not compatible yet. But is the rest of the hardware compatible? Especially would sound, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, SD card reader work under macOS…?

I suspect the hardware would be compatible with macOS - it has Realtek LAN and audio. But at this point I wouldn't count on Nvidia ever releasing Pascal drivers for macOS - I believe they would have done it already if they were planning to. That's only my opinion.
