How to download macOS Sierra on El Capitan with MacPro 3,1?

So I have a working install on El Capitan using MultiBeast 2 years ago.

I want to upgrade it to Sierra and use the vanilla Clover method. I read some posts about how you don't even need MultiBeast and can just put any necessary kexts in the EFI partition and that's what I want to do so I can upgrade my install in the future in any way I want without the mess that usually comes with upgrading.

The current problem is that my computer has a system definition of MacPro 3,1 which is not supported by Sierra. The Mac App Store won't let me download it. I tried to change my system definition to MacPro 6,1 and got stuck at boot so I used Clover to change it back to 3,1 and for now it works again. What do I have to do from here?

Gigabyte GA-Z170-Gaming 7 Motherboard

We are having recurrent video issues with this setup. The NVIDIA Web Drivers are installed and active, but even YouTube stutters, plus any video played on VLC. This box was meant to be a Final Cut Pro workstation (purchased and assembled Dec 2016) but it simply hasn't been able to do any FCX Pro work. I've hammered at the config plist according to various instructions I've found on the web. At this point I'd like to know the best way to start from scratch with a clean install.

Parts: Intel Core i7 6700K Gigabyte GA-Z170-Gaming 7 EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6GB Corsair Vengeance LPX 64GB RAM Fenvi T-919 802.11AC Desktop Wifi / Bluetooth Card Samsung EVO 850 1TB SSD

Any help we can get is greatly appreciated.

Help with Install

Okay, so I'll start with my components. I have:

-i7 7700k

-EVGA GTX 1070 FTW (Attempted install both with and without connected)

-Asus z270-AR Mobo

-16 gbs crucial Memory at 2400 mhz (Not sure if it matters)

-TP-link pcie wifi card (Disconnected for install)

I'm trying to install, and I went through my Bios and disabled and enabled everything recommended, and this is where I had to skip a step or two. I couldn't find any specific option for 'IO SerialPort' setting or any way to disable USB 3.0, but I have a series 7 CPU so I dont know if that applies to me.

I'm able to get to the option in clover to Boot MacOS from USB(no option from hard drive) and I get to the Apple Logo. I've tried a few times and got the bar to get to 60-70% of the way through before it just stops.

I've gone so far as to disconnect every hard drive sans my boot drive and the one I'm going to install to.

Has anyone had similar issues with any remedies?

FCPX not using all 12 threads?

I have a Hackintosh with a Xeon X5675 (6 cores, 12 threads). I can see with htop that the machine is recognizing all 12 threads, but it seems final cut only uses 6 of them when rendering. Is this normal behavior for FCPX or is there some setting that is set improperly? Thanks.

On windows encrypted HDD with VeraCrypt makes "click sounds" on macOS

Hello. A few months ago I sucessfully installed macOS (10.14 I think) on my PC. My HDD is encrypted with VeraCrypt (did that on windows). After every reboot I got a notification on macOS that HDD can't be mounted or something like that. After I ran VeraCrypt and decrypted the HDD this notification wasn't there anymore (until the next reboot). Another problem was that the HDD made "click sounds" every I would say 20-30 seconds. Do you think the "click sounds" are caused because the HDD was encrypted on windows and not on macOS? Anyone out there who had/has same problems and solved them?

Thank you for your help! :)

Fresh install of 10.12.6 keeps freezing / locking-up my system

Over the weekend I did a fresh install of 10.12.6 and it keeps freezing. I only have Chrome and Mail opened and it still keeps freezing. My only option is to force shutdown by the holding down the power button.

I am using the RX 480 as my only GPU with the Lilu kexts and the WhateverGreen kexts. I did have a lot of issues with the post installation of 10.12.6. It took me forever to get the audio working and I wasn't able to get the IGPU 530 graphics to work. After multiple attempts.
