Thread: AsRock z97 Extreme 6 Thunderbolt Connector

    I'm on a mission to get TB working on my Z97 Extreme9. I want to get a ARECA 8050T2 TB2 8 bay DAS.

    The Extreme9 has the same TB1 connector as the Extreme6. It is a 5 pin connector.

    I purchased an ASUS ThunderboltEX II card and it has a 9 pin connector so no joy. I also tried an HP add in card and it has a completely different set on connectors.

    It seems that the MSI Thunderbolt plus card is the one recommended for the Extreme6. I assume it will work with the Extreme9 and am willing to try it.

    Does anyone know were (or when) the MSI card be purchased?

    As you probably know, MSI does not even have that Thunderbolt card listed on their official US website. No one has it for sale that I can find.

    I found that a newer Asus Thunderbolt card included an adapter for the nine pin connector to work with the five pin header, which I mentioned in my post on the first page of this thread.
