Thunder3 or Thunder2 on El Capitan

Looking at getting an Akitio Thunder for my Mac Mini, but at least for the moment I want to stay at El Capitan, I've seen many implementations with the Thunder3 on Sierra, but none on El Capitan... Has anyone verified that this setup works or should I look at the Thunder2?

I haven't seen any issues revolving around egpu / El Capitan. 

With the mini, the thunder2 is compatible. 

Thunderbolt3 is a different cable / port (usb-c)
