Hi there,

Just got everything up and running on my hackintosh, running 10.12.6

All is well aside from the most important part of my entire build... I need my TB3 (USB-C) port to detect my TB2 Audio Interface (Apollo 8). I'm using Apple's TB3-TB2 adapter and that is what's being picked up in my USB-C port (photo attached), but not my Audio Interface.

Any help would me appreciated!

Thanks

Ballistix Sport 16GB 2400 DDR4
Internal Graphics
Corsair 550m Supply

Well, based of the info on this webpage (search term: Gigabyte GA-H270-Gaming 3), your motherboard does not have support for Thunderbolt 3. It has USB-C, but your only other option is to get a motherboard that explicitly states Thunderbolt support.
Also, the Apple TB3-TB2 adapter is not recommended by Apollo support; rather, they recommend the Startech TB3-TB2 adapter (see this link).
