    Losing Thunderbolt after a shutdown

    I'm having a weird problem where Thunderbolt is completely disabled after starting up again after a shutdown. The temporary fix is restarting and everything seems to work again (TB HD's, Apollo Twin, etc.) It's as if there is no AIC installed, but when I restart everything's back to normal. And...

    AppleUSBHostController - Kernel Panic after Installing PCIe Device

    Hey all, I have a pretty stable x99 build, but recently my Thunderboltex3 started ****ing up (more than usual). This started when I installed a new NVMe drive into a PCIe slot.

    Thunderbolt worth the trouble? A video editor asks...

    I've been prioritizing TB in the past and don't know if it is worth it for my next build. Rather than daisy-chaining many devices and a monitor at the end (I don't), all I really need for the editing I do should be covered via USB-C SSD external drive speeds, which would allow me to be more...
