    Max XII Extreme - Does the Thunderbolt take PCIe lanes


    I come here with a MAX XII question. I realize those are Max X/XI forums, but I haven't found a better match for Max XII atm. :/

    So, I am new to Maximus, and new to Thunderbolt. In reviews, I saw that the Max XII Extreme comes with a Thunderbolt 3 card. Well, cute, I never used it, probably never will have the need, but since it is there and boosts up the price tag so much, I wonder how it would work.

    Particularly, I would like to keep the x16 for the card, and the PCIe pins on Thunderbolt card look to me like using it would mean the x8/x8 mobo mode. [ The manual ] is not explicit about this, thus it is probably generally known.

    So... is there a way to utilize this included Thunderbolt 3 card while keeping the video card at x16?
