I found an article today about adding a TB card to a Mac 5,1 and dual booting windows to get the card on then warm booting into OS and voila TB works. Im not sure if it shows up in System Profiler as thunderbolt active or if it shows up like our hackintoshes (UAD audio device). Performance is the same as if native.

So, I was under the impression that without a TB Header on your motherboard you'd never ever have access to Thunderbolt. Was I wrong?

Here is my question relating to this Article:
I have checked in the article and cannot find the "Thunderbolt Card Power Cable" and how it was connected to the card?
Please, can anyone shed more light on how the cable was made (if DIY) and powered or where we can buy the cable?

I do have an Apple Thunderbolt Cinema Display which i am currently trying to setup with GIGABYTE MB
GA-Z77X-UP5-TH
. I was able to connect it to the onboard Thunderbolt of the mb and i able to display properly during the BIOS interface. I am able to boot to windows currectly but when booting to macOS Hackintosh the screen splits into 6 smaller view with a big raster covering almost the entire screen. For a better understanding i have been able to attach screen shots of what this look like below:
