    It's even hot-pluggable, which is a pleasant shock to me. I thought in Windows you either booted up with the Tbolt drive plugged in, or you couldn't use it. I can eject and replug my Thunderbolt drive in willy-nilly, during regular Windows operation. Cool!

    On the minus side, only ONE of the two ports on my Thunderbolt EXII/Dual card works. Ugh. A final f-u from Asus to me. Whatever, I can't bother troubleshooting that. Even though it would be nice to have both ports since many external hard drives don't have a daisy chain pass through Thunderbolt port.

    Thank you guys so much for the tip that the EXII/Dual card works. To be honest, all my devices are Thunderbolt 2 anyway, and I will NOT be purchasing any Thunderbolt 3 devices, ever.

    So this is enough of a solution to my issue, even though I'm mad as hell I had to shell out $150 to buy the last ThunderboltEXII card I could find in stock.

    Good Job, Damm $150 Hopefully the second port wakes up. I still have not recieved my RMA back, Gigabyte workin still.
