I made the same choice except I have an ASUS Rog Maximus Hero 9. Thanks to great build description by @JCMunsonII of his HEROICA build and some additional help from @Stork @pastrychef and @RehabMan my build fairly solid without any issues, but the one thing I cannot seem to get going is the Alpine Ridge card. I've read conflicting posts where some claim that you should ONLY stick with the same brand as your motherboard, but it looks like you considered the possibility of an ASUS TB3. Any reason why GC-Apline Ridge wouldn't work with ASUS Hero 9? This might sound crazy, but is there any chance that because my system definitions are set to iMac 18,3 which most closely resembles my build, it doesn't see the Thunderbolt?I chose Gigabyte over ASUS because TB3 AIC (add-in card) on ASUS is only single-port, where Gigabyte card is dual port.
I did boot into Windows 10 and got the card active but only using USB C ports on the card, not the two Thunderbolt 2 ports. Any guidance or ideas you can share with me might help.
