@itsage
thanks for the great summery!
Sadly I couldn’t find a software-firmware-file on the internet. So I sent the gc-titan-ridge to a kind hackintosh fellow, who had to transfer the old V23 Firmware via EEPROM Flash. With the old 23 Version averything is working fine after the usual warmboot.

@noidea Good to know Thunderbolt FW V23 does the trick.

Yes, the 23FW is the firmware you should have, my guess is that there is a 23FW of the very first deliveries of the Titan Ridge (must be one from 8.1.2018)
that even allows a cold boot, which was then closed by an update. But it looks like someone has this FW.
All Titan Ridge with the SN: 19XXXXXXXXXXX have the 43FW. All SN: 18xxxxxxxxx have the 23FW

look

Has anyone tried an x399 designare EX. ?

Would they be the same procedures that ITSAGE explains?

@brian_salazar, The X399 Designare motherboard has THB_C Header. Did you try connecting the AIC to that header? Maybe try different PCIe slots and see if there's detection.

@itsage,

Wendell and I have tried several ways: / but without success I have changed ports and we have not put bios f10 connected bt header instead and usb did not work either: /

It should be noted that what I want to connect are some Apple Thunderbolt display monitors, however I do not think that is the reason why my Mobo PC does not recognize the GC Titan

if any reason pin 1 and 3 on one occasion can it cause?

excuse my ignorance

@brian_salazar, Thunderbolt on X399 is still a non-supported configuration so the particular motherboard you have may not work. I've tried ASRock Taichi X399 and ASUS X399 Gaming-E and they work the same way. It's also possible your AIC has a newer firmware rather the 23.0 version that came with my card. If your main intention is to drive Thunderbolt monitors, I'd recommend using the GC-ALPINE-RIDGE instead.

@itsage,

Thank you very much itage I will buy the GC-ALPINE-RIDGE and that procedure I would have to do the same with the pins or the normal contact of the header in their respective place, I would follow in the bios f10 to designate mobo or I have to do test and error

@brian_salazar, You don't need to connect the header cable to the GC-ALPINE-RIDGE AIC. It doesn't work as a Thunderbolt 3 add-in for the motherboard. It simply converts DisplayPort stream/s to Thunderbolt 3 monitor output.
