Thunderbolt equipped motherboards now available

Most of us know that the latest MacBook Pro, Mac Mini, and iMac units are equipped with the high-speed Thunderbolt protocol, but no PC motherboards (both for purchase and in prebuilt machines) contain it. Now, ASUS has release not one, but two Intel-certified motherboards with Thunderbolt, the P8Z77-V Premium and the P8Z77-V/Thunderbolt. MSI has also released a Thunderbolt ready motherboard, the Z77A-GD80, but it has not been certified by Intel at this time of writing. So far there have been no reports on whether Thunderbolt works in OS X on these motherboards.

P.S. - no drivers are needed from Apple.
Thx Gilj, but seems not working on an Imac27...
How did you set Thunderbolt settings in BIOS ?
No improvement... Imac screen don't switch... :(
Hi, sorry only one doubt, if I have a main board whit thunderbolt interface like Asus P8Z77-V PRO/THUNDERBOLT nd I connect to them an Apple thunderbolt display it works? (also if I install Mac osX Lion).
Any news??
You can use Thunderbolt on a PC motherboard with a Thunderbolt Display but not an Imac it would seem.
I don't think your Thunderbolt controller is likely to work when you install OSX Lion, but it works in Windows.
I really want thunderbolt but the problem is that its just not cost effective yet... I cant see myself jumping for thunderbolt for at least another year or two
