The thing is that apart from the issues I've heard I might find, I couldn't find in my BIOS a single section regarding thunderbolt or USB type c even using nowadays latest version...Do you have any idea if my board (even having the header) never had thunderbolt/typce c implemented in the bios? it seems odd that I don't have a section like the one you have in yours from the Deluxe 2nd gen....thanxs in advance!
They coded the bios so that the Thunderbolt settings don't even show up until you have one installed. Usually after 1-2 reboots it will pop up in the advanced section.
The gigabyte TB3 does not have usb3.0 so I can't help you there. You might take a look around and see if any other vendors have a TB3 card with usb3.0. I do not recommend trying an Asus one though. I have never had one that worked for more then a month or so.
