When I was first trying to get my Thunder2 working I found that the black metal part that the gpu io bracket screws into was ever so slightly keeping the card from properly going into the PCI slot. The card wasn't being recognized in a similar way to what you've described. Taking out that part fixed the problem (and I eventually bent the io bracket on my gpu to fit with it in but I'm not sure I recommend that).

Edit:
Here's a picture of the part I mean:

@nu_ninja Just tried it, the GPU became even more unstable. I guess it was connected alright with the black part of the Akitio anyway.

@alex_dubinin, Hey bro! I'm sorry if it's too late already, but may I ask how did you eventually get it working? I think I quite literally have the exact same setup and problem as you (except my card is RX480). Thank you so much ! 😀
