So I did some research and ended up the same solution. I used the card with a m.2 to pcie cable, and at the beginning it shows up in the thunderbolt control panel but because I don't have a thunderbolt device to test and any regular type c device just won't work, I unplugged the card and it never shows up again. I've seen someone saying the card driver version after 23 won't allow jump wire, and mine is 50. I'm curious what version are you using and do you have issues using regular type-c devices or any hot plug issues?

I don't have the card anymore. It was between 10G SFP+ NIC and TB3. I use 10G more, so sold off TB3 card.

Only have a 10G to TB3 NIC(Which is already in another machine) and a external SSD as TB3 devices.

do you actually have some sort of tb3 header? if not I'm curious how does it really support tb3 without a header...
Yes, the Gigabyte X570 has a USB-C / TB3 connector at the back. The BIOS does indeed indicate to support TB3. I'll grab a screenshot from my BIOS.

Apologies for asking such a beginner question but when you fill the loop, was your GPU plugged in?

That’s interesting, it’s not listed on the paper. A screenshot would be much appreciated, I may need to switch to it if it’s true...

@fabio quick question: I saw in another thread you are using the Aquanaut now. I’m assuming in order to make space for the extra radiator. However if I’d like to run a bifurcated build (GFX + additional pcie card), but have no desire for 2 radiators. Am I better of with the EK magnitude + separate pump res combo or would you still recommend the aquanaut?

my concerns are mostly a quiet build that doesn’t overheat.

Sorry for the late reply! Here you are! I think the new Thunderbolt controller PCIe cards can be used without the header.

Depends always from the CPU, but in general they are equivalent in this case, I think mostly because in a GPU-CPU loop is the radiator the physical limit.

I will still prefer always a separate block and res/pump if is there the possibilities!

@fabio Do you have any temperature stats under load that you can post? Wondering how well the 240mm slim rad w/slim fans cools your entire setup. I'm building a similar sff build in an sm570. Thanks!

Nevermind - sorry I'm a NOOB here & didn't see there were 20+ pages on this thread! Thanks for the work & I'm loving some of these parts recommendations.
