Get the non-Plus 970 Evo drive as the Plus versions are incompatible with macOS.

Does your build / video and audio work, require that you have Thunderbolt 3 ?
This is also my concern!!! For now, I haven’t any thunderbolt device (only using Scarlett 2i2 for playback and recording). However I don’t know if I change thunderbolt devices in the future.

So I want to ask that can I add a thunderbolt card based on z390?
Or is there any motherboard with thunderbolt can fight with z390?

Thank you so much!!!’

I know the plus versions can’t install macOS. This is only for windows since a run duo system. Is it works~? Will I affect the windows part or MacOS part?

Thank you!!!!!
