Everything is working flawlessly. Beyond all my expectations.

The Crosshair VI Hero seems really tailored for the job.

Sound/Mic/USB/Ethernet, everything is working natively with the SierraAMDv5 available here: app.php/bbdownloads/sierra.html

I followed this tutorial: https://forum.amd-osx.com/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=2707

He posted two youtube videos for clover UEFI installation/ Nvidia GPU configuration on the tutorial but they seem not to appear all the time.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=acG5y6HiPbE (installation)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SRWUUI0fBeQ (configuration for nvidia GPU)

Also I came across a problem at the very beginning, during the first boot from USB.

The problem & its solution: https://forum.amd-osx.com/viewtopic.php?t=2565

My routine: OS X installation -> Clover installation/configuration (following the youtube video) -> Nvidia Web driver installation -> reboot.

You don't need the Clover Configurator used on the youtube video besides for mounting/unmounting the EFI partition.

Although you'll need the Clover Configurator later if you want to make imessage/facetime/siri work. But for now...it's extremely tricky to make those work on an AMD processor. I suggest you forget those for now.

Here goes the benches. They completely stunned me.

I never tried Hackintoshing, in my mind it always echoed with reducing raw performances if not used with apple approved components.

God was I wrong. I reached the same/higher scores on SierraAMD compared to win10.

Not mentioning the 4-screen @60-165Hz support.
I have 3 aligned PG279Q monitors (165Hz) and a 4k Samsung monitor (60Hz) on top.
Everything is recognised and working flawlessly.


I'm infinitely grateful. Keep up the great work.

I did exactly like I explained in the initial post, and as I said and shown, my GPU is perfectly healthy, with an OpenCL score perfectly fine for a 1080ti. What drivers are you guys using? How are your clover plist configured?

Not mentioning my 4 screen @165hz configuration working perfectly.

Just wanted to affirm my success on this same sort of build. Amazing, trying to find a good way to get to High Sierra now.
