Does not work 4/17/2020 2:35:15 PM

Overall Review: I'm sure it would have been great if it just works, alas, it does not.
Bios updated, drivers installed, nothing I plug works.

My motherboard is the X99-E Gaming II.

Works as advertised. 1/29/2020 4:41:00 PM

Pros: Fast file transfers on rotational hard drives, even faster on SSD drives. Not sure why folks are having so much problems with these cards. I mean following the directions and you'll be on your way.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: Currently installed on a ASUS Z170-Pro and working flawlessly.

x99-e ws not compatable 8/7/2019 1:19:58 PM

Pros: Looks like it would work great and I like ASUS parts I have multiple things from them

Cons: Contacted Tech support and Spent 2 hours trying to get it working but it just doesn't. computer and Bios sees the card and loads the drivers but wont connect to any external drives or other thunderbolt devices I was suppose to get a call from the engineering dept but after 3 weeks no contact so I returned the card. I have a engineering degree myself so I know what I'm doing.

Overall Review: I really wanted thunderbolt on my computer, but I guess this card doesn't work...

Works, and not expensive 9/12/2018 4:30:41 PM

Pros: It's stable inside Windows. I use it with an external DAS array by LaCie to stream footage 24 hours a day. So this use case verifies the reliability of the setup.
I also connect BlackMagic Design capture and monitoring cards through Thunderbolt 3 enclosures, and they work great to.

Cons: This card only has 1 Thunderbolt 3 port, I really wish there were more.

Having to run the DisplayPort cable outside the case seems like a half-baked solution for getting displays to work of the Thunderbolt Port.

Enable connected devices to reconnect automatically so you don't have to go through the Thunderbolt prompt which runs in the background in the system tray.

Overall Review: Tips: (3 steps: insert card, connect the included cable to the TB3 header, run the DisplayPort to MiniDisplay Port cable from the integrated Intel graphics to the Thunderbolt card.) Once the physical install is complete, make sure to enable the Thunderbolt settings inside the BIOS/UEFI since it will not show up in Windows unless you do.
