Does anyone have the Asus Thunderboltex II card?

27 May 2015 - 06:08 AM

Hi!

 

I recently had to upgrade my computer, after my motherboard went bang a couple of weeks ago. As you can see in my sig, I'm now a proud owner of an Asus Z97 Gryphon m-ATX board. One of the nicest features of it is the possibility of thunderbolt expansion via the Asus Thunderboltex II PCI-e card, for a smaller total cost than Gigabyte's competing solution, the Z97-UD7-TH. On the other hand, the UD7-TH thunderbolt port works more or less OOB under OSX - like everything Gigabyte usually does - and didn't even know the Asus card existed until very recently.

 

So I'm now curious - did I make a good choice going Gryphon for a future thunderbolt capability without the UD7-TH's price tag? Have anyone actually tried this card with a hackintosh? If so, does it work fine, or work at all?

 

All the best!

QUO Computer website is back again!

For those of you, like myself, who choose not buying QUO when it was on kickstarter phase and now regret for quite a while not being able to use a thunderbolt capable board with our good old Ivy Bridge CPUs, since 7-series boards vanished, and the few ones which had TB more so, that's noteworthy news. I was planning to upgrade my old i5 3570K, but perhaps I had an alternative which would allow me to keep it:

Still thinking about it: does it still worth the price in these 8/9 Series/Haswell/Broadwell days?

 

 

iMessage and FaceTime - misbehaving again!

03 August 2014 - 05:59 AM

Hi, folks!

 

I just noticed a strange behavior with both FaceTime and iMessage, after not having been notified by iMessage on my Mac when them messages were arriving on my iPhone, for a while now. In fact, I think, since I installed DP4. I left it alone this time because of other priorities, but decided to fix it today. I obviously thought I was having some of that odd authentication issues, despite having done all the steps to get it set up properly. But when I opened Messages to check if I could log in, I realized I was already logged in! I tried to sign out and in, and it went without issues. But the issue persisted. Despite being logged in, I'm not receiving any iMessages. I'm not able to send any iMessages either: at first, all tries returned "this number/address is not registered to iMessages". Afterwards, the option was simply not available to any of my contacts!

 

That's not all: I decided to check FaceTime, because the issues that affect iMessage use to affect also FaceTime, and I was worried for a good reason: FaceTime also logs in and out fine, but won't let me start a conversation, both audio and video, with any of my contacts!

 

Is there anyone experiencing the same kind of problems? If there is, I wonder if Apple decided to deliver us a sucker punch and changed (again) the way it authenticates its services...

 

 

All the best!

P.S.: I just realized I'm being consistently kicked from iMessage after a couple of minutes, having to log in again! If I try to log in to FaceTime, i'm kicked immediately! What the heck...?
