    So I finally got my native Thunderbolt port working on my Asus Z170-PREMIUM running Presonus Quantum. It was a struggle and yesterday I almost gave up. I tried every setting in bios possible, but actually I did not have to change a single thing from the default settings (bios 3801). The thing I was missing was the motherboard firmware update which is not the same as bios update.
    (People that buy the Asus Thunderboltex 3 adapter has to change the settings in bios. I can also connect my motherboard to Asus Thunderboltex 3, but don't see the point since you only are allowed to use one Thunderbolt port at a time cause bios does not allow two.)
    I have just tried the Quantum for a couple of hours but it seems stable and fast :yes:. See video under
