    How to build your own iMac Pro [Successful Build/Extended Guide]

    @kgp You're absolutely right, I apologize I jumped the gun too soon! I learned that you cant just slap pci-e cards in any slot and expect things to run properly. I was testing out a few things though for other people here on the forum too @djlild7hina and hopefully people could learn from my...

    Also where did you read that the TB needs to be in slot 2? That really would be a horrible design if you can only run a 1 slot GPU in slot 1 and TB in slot 2 only.

    Ok so here the report. 1st GPU has to be installed into slot 1 to post. I have another GPU in slot 3-4 and it works perfect. In octane bench no issues. No 10G as of yet. Trying to get the thunderbolt working now by installing Windows 10. Did you say you have the drivers, that would be awesome...

    How to build your own iMac Pro [Successful Build/Extended Guide]

    Sure no problem, I will test those things you asked for and report back. I just built her, now I am going to update the bios to the latest version and start the hack. Did you install the usual way from page 1 of the thread with 10.13.6? Or should I install 10.13.3 instead? Also if I do need...

    How to build your own iMac Pro [Successful Build/Extended Guide]

    Just to be absolutely sure because Im going to buy this board. Does the onboard 10G work without a hassle? Also is the TB work with hotswap, and all the back ports ect? Anything else to be aware of? Thanks!

    How to build your own iMac Pro [Successful Build/Extended Guide]

    Yes, I was reading back on some of your threads. I think I will buy the 1050ti single slot card run that on lane 1 and thunderbolt card on lane 2. Then some 1080tis on the rest of the lanes. I would love to know though if this would even work. If it doesn't I wouldn't buy the board, it would not...

    That would be great thank you! Are you running multiple gpus in the system? I need a few 1080tis with cuda power for rendering. I would love to know how that has been working out! Thanks!
