I followed your guide to the letter and installed the card on PCI-EX 3 because I have 1 and 2 already populated. 1 being my gtx 1080 and 2 my blackmagic mini monitor card. The weird thing is that the If I unplug the card the bios thunderbolt option is not there and when it's plugged in it appears. But prom NB_ configuration it says not present in slot 3. I also tried slot 5 and it sees it there but I can't use that because in that case my gpu runs at 8x instead of 16x. I'm really lost, because it was working fine and now nothing. I'm about to trash this stupid card but I want to give it a last shot. any ideas? Thank you
Yeah this is what heppened to me twice. I still have not tried to reflow the BGAs yet. So I still don't know if it's a thermal issue. Like I said I bought a gigabyte card and it's still working perfectly.

Sorry your having issues, I think the asus card is just garbage, and they know it. Which is why you don't hear much about it, and the support for it is nill.
