My fresh install of High Sierra on the same mobo and cpu as you, is working without a hitch. Critical part was updating bios and do appropriate settings there. Note: virtualization is disabled by default. I can provide my efi/config if need be.

Tested ram dual channel set up with only 2 ram sticks, high sierra boots up halfway and then automatically reboots. It's a fail, so far.

Any advice on other mobos that would support thunderbolt AND overclocking with the 8700k ?
Seems like the Gigabyte Aorus line of mobos are working. And people have succeeded getting TB to work with the GC-Alpine Ridge Thunderbolt 3 AIC... (not sure if that is with those exact cards though).
I’ve ordered the Aorus Ultra Gaming Z370 and hope for the best ;)
EDIT: changed my order to the Aorus Gaming 7 as it was in stock and supposed to have same audio chip as Macs and work out of the box... to be continued...
