    Question on USB 3.1 Type-C & Thunderbolt

    I've been away from the forum for a while, but trying to play catch-up. I'm building a new CustoMac for some 4K video/360/VR video editing & production. Many of the relatively-new Z170 boards advertise Thunderbolt 3 support, plus include 1 or 2 USB 3.1 Type-C connections (aka "Thunderbolt 3"...
