    Thanks a lot @zipb,
    what do you suggest to make Thunderbolt work best on this board?
    I don't get what you mean by saying "TB works best (after waking it up in Windows) ..."

    Currently Thunderbolt devices are seen in MacOS if they're switched on at boot.
    Should those devices work flawlessly once they're seen? Like external thunderbolt discs for example?
    Because while copying from external Thunderbolt discs the system hung up and required a reboot.
    But USB hung up too.
    Thanks for your help.

    If your TB devices ar seen when connected at boot, you should be OK. As of now, it doesn't get better than this for most people with TB boards. Some/most TB stuff works, and keeps working if connected at boot.

    I upgraded my BIOS & TB firmware a couple of times(via Windows), without noticeable improvements.

    About the hangs, make sure your Hack is properly patched. (USB etc)

    it means that when I wake the system up by pressing enter on the keyboard, the machine reboots and starts again...

    Yes, I know that - I was asking you to post the contents of the Kernel Panic log so that I could see more details on why you're experiencing this crash.

    I'm a bit confused following this thread, but can someone just verify with me - hot plugging is not working for z370 systems yet right? I was going to get a i9 7900 system (so, x299) but it was significantly more expensive and overclocking seemed more troublesome.

    Currently the best results are with X299 chipsets and a PCI-Thunderbolt card.
    For all other chipsets there are no developments until we understand what the THB_C cable does
