    Motherboard with Thunderbolt 3 vs Thunderbolt expansion

    Lmao did you read my comment? I'm saying there are no MacOS computers using x299 motherboards. Where did you read "Kabylake doesnt work with Apple". Plus I wrote this long before the new iMacs were announced so you can't blame me.

    But the same happens with ASUS... no motherboards have Thunderbolt 3 integrated, you need to buy their expansion card.

    He is wrong. Gigabyte will keep using Thunderbolt technology for their motherboards. The new X299 Gaming 7, for instance, has 1 Thunderbolt 3 port. gigabyte.com/products/page/mb/x299_aorus_gaming_7rev_10#kf

    X299 motherboards aren't designed for Skylake/Kabylake, so you won't be able to use them with these types of CPUs. The new socket is called 2006 and no it isn't officially supported by Apple so that doesn't look promising either. Bad luck for you.

    Guide for MSI Z170A GAMING M3,i5 6600K 3.5GHz Skylake, Sapphire Radeon R7 370 NITRO 4GB

    Looks like noone has answered you since then. Well, let me quickly explain you how this world works. You can install macOS on motherboards thanks to their BIOS. Every brand has different BIOS designs, but they do end up doing the same. As far as I know, the MSI Gaming M3 shouldn't give you any...

    How can I add Thunderbolt 3 to my Hackintosh?

    Trust me, I've been doing A LOT of a research. Everything is very blurry, nobody knows how do these cards exactly work and if they work with an exact motherboard...

    How can I add Thunderbolt 3 to my Hackintosh?

    I've honestly been thinking a lot about it, and realised I don't actually need it for anything right now. At the end, I'm probably going to go for a motherboard with a TB header, so if I feel the need to buy a TB card someday, I will be able to do so. I've seen a really good deal on an MSI Z170A...

    Motherboard with Thunderbolt 3 vs Thunderbolt expansion

    Having the same issue here. I want to buy a Gigabyte Z170 Gaming K3 since it has a TB header, but I don't know if the ThunderboltEX 3 card will work with it. The AlpineRidge is like a myth: you find it very rarely in a forum, and when you do, noone knows where to buy it and if it really works.

    How can I add Thunderbolt 3 to my Hackintosh?

    Okay, so I've decided to make my first Hackintosh PC recently, and I've been looking at all the components and read many forums to learn many things. I've decided I'm going for an Overclockable i5 6600k, 16GB of DDR4 RAM, etc. Now I'm just taking care of the details before ending up buying it...
