thanks for doing the testing.
is the Titan Ridge AIC flashed?
currently my issue is that waking my Aorus Pro/AR AIC/TB display from sleep, either by pressing the power button or by a keystroke, spins up the fans and interior lighting, but the display remains black and the computer isn't accessible via screen sharing. I have to shut the power off. Once rebooted using a second monitor connected (TB still connected but black) shows "no thunderbolt devices" in system report. I have to clear CMOS, reset BIOS settings, unlock MSR, and all is well. also of interest is that before the "sleep problem" occurs, using only the TB connected at boot, sometimes the display lights up immediately for part of the boot process then goes dark as expected until the desktop appears, and sometimes it is dark until the desktop appears.
yes, the workaround is to prevent system sleep (screen sleep works OK) and power off at the end of the day. but I am cursed with the engineer's affliction of wanting to know why stuff doesn't work right!
I've spent the last few days on and off trying to come up with a set of steps that reliably reproduces the wake problem so I can describe it here. I'm not quite finished with the testing and documentation.
the testing I've done would suggest my wake problem may be tied to BIOS settings. are you using the settings as recommended by CaseySJ in post #1?
What a disappointment to lose your TB bus based on SLEEP failure, then have to go through that extensive restore procedure!
The following information is based on my Z390 Aorus Pro with a flashed GC-Titan Ridge AIC. Flashing was done per @CaseySJ mini-guides. I'm running fully updated Mojave 10.14.6, BIOS F11, Clover 5107, i9-9900K, RX-580 (headless), jumper cable between the GC-TR AIC and DP on the RX-580. Apple TB Display with the TB3->TB converter plugged into a GC-TR TB3 port, and the other LG display plugged into an HDMI port on the RX-580.
The attached Aorus Pro BIOS - TB.zip file contains three jpg files (BIOS-TB-x) with screen shots of my BIOS setting for Thunderbolt.
Also a file - AP_04_25_2020 - saved from my BIOS with my current BIOS settings. You COULD SAVE your current BIOS settings to a file (in the EFI partition of a thumb drive), and load my BIOS setting to see if there are any other settings that might make a difference.
Finally a screenshot of my Clover Configurator Acpi screen with a "Disable GPE.TINI - TB3 Slow Boot" patch that significantly increases boot time with the GC-TR AIC installed. Credited to @Elias64Fr . (Since you are doing a lot of rebooting!)
Are you confident that the flashing of the GC-TR AIC was successful? Would it make sense to re-flash the card if none of this information I've offered helps?
It seems that typically two seemingly very similar hackintoshes can act very differently.
