So I just got banned from tonymac, I was just asking for help because I am out of ideas.

My specs are :
Asus ROG Maximus HERO X
GTX 970
Crucial Ballistix Sport LT 32 GB DIMM DDR4-2400 2 x 16 GB
Samsung 960 EVO 500 GB M.2
Intel Core i7 8700K Coffee Lake


I initially used the Hackintosher guide ( https://hackintosher.com/forums/thr...-rog-maximus-x-hero-z370-hackintosh-build.15/) to pick my parts and do the install. The problem was that I installed the latest High Sierra update and with it the latest Nvidia Drivers. So I got alot of flickering and alot of lag.

So my question is : Can anybody help me with steps on how to get this build working with the nvidia web driver : 378.10.10.10.25.106

I will put in my attachments the config.plist.

Thank you so much for your time. It's a shame the other forum would just ban me for only asking a question

The lags are a common problem with the nVidia GPUs and High Sierra.
Try updating nVidiaGraphicsFixUp.kext 1.2.3 and Lilu 1.2.2 it might help. (They didn't help me though I still got the lags)

or use this script to use the best version of the nVidia web driver for your rig.

The lags are not there, in my experience the lags are in the macOS UI itself not the web GL or the blossom, although the blossom has a very small lag but it's not noticeable. How's your overall experience with the macOS UI and Safari?

Use safari and open multiple tabs (7 to 10 tabs) switch between the tabs and then start closing them an see if the tabs are closing smoothly or they stutter.

I think it's alright. And to be honest after the fix I think this is the best experience I've had on a hackintosh ever. This is smoother than my macbook pro retina 15 2015 (i7, 16 gb ram)
