Hey, guys! This is my first personal build for a hackintosh, and I wanted to shed some light on the use of Thunderbolt for audio interfaces.
First, let me list my build:
- Gigabyte Z170x Gaming Ultra Rev 1.0
- 32gb crucial ballistix ram
- Gigabyte GEFORCE 950 GTX
- I7 Skylake 6700k
Can someone please help me???
ASRock Z270 Super Carrier (Thunderbolt 3) not working on Sierra!
Thunderbolt 3 works perfectly with Apollo Twin Duo on Windows 10, but nothing is detected under Mac OS Sierra 10.12.3.
I have tried the:
"Apple Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt 2 Adapter"
Could someone please recommend an UP-TO-DATE
MOBO (for SEIRRA)
ITX or MATX
that has thunderbolt 3 (to be used as thunderbolt 2) for UAD Audio.
I'll need WIFI and BT - so if using the first PCIE slot affects the thunderbolt (please take that into consideration)
I have a GA-X99P-SLI motherboard. I used Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt 2 Adapter and when I used Seagate Backup Plus Desktop Thunderbolt Adapter, Sierra 10.12.2 show this alert "Cannot Use Thunderbolt Accessory".
Does anyone know how to solve this problem?

External monitors are not working on DisplayPort or HDMI. I understand this may be impossible because the ports (HDMI / DP) may be directly connected to the GTX1060. I have a two adapters on order (TB3 to HDMI and TB3 to DisplayPort) to try the TB3/USB-C ports to see if they can...
Does anyone have succes with the Apple TB3 to TB2 adapter on GA-Z170X-UD5-TH?
(Also running Nvidia GPU and NVMe Based Samsung 961 SSD, does the PCIe slot matter?)
When I plug in the device (read: boot with the adapter in the port and TB to ethernet attached to it) it get's...

I'm interested in building a Hackintosh to support the new LG UltraFine 5K display. It's on the November Buyers Guide too.
It uses Thunderbolt 3 over a USB C style connection to drive the display over 1 cable along with a USB C Hub, speakers, and a web camera.
What's the recommended...
I've been thinking about building a Hackintosh with the Gigabyte GA-X99P-SLI mobo. I'm fully aware that x99 isn't totally supported, and that it takes a bit of effort to get it working. But the bigger question is: now that MacOS Sierra has Thunderbolt 3 support, what are the chances of getting...
