Hey guys,

I'm a huge apple fan, however the direction the company is heading by soldering in the hd and ram has made me commit to not buying any more apple hardware until they go back to being more reasonable.

I need thunderbolt and firewire 800 for my audio interface and audio devices. I use primarily universal audio devices. I have an apollo 8 thunderbolt, an apollo twin thunderbolt and a quad satellite that's firewire 800. So I need at least 2 thunderbolt ports and a firewire 800 pci-e card. I'm looking at getting the GA-Z170X-HD5 TH mb as I've seen others get thunderbolt working on it. Thought I'd ask if anyone else has any other suggestions.

Thanks so much for the help,

Jason
