GC-Titan Ridge 40GB/S Intel Thunderbolt 3 Certified Add-in Card fully functional under macOS! 

 

GC-Titan Ridge working OoB under macOS 10.14 Mojave with SSDT-X299-TB3HP-TTR.aml and SSDT-X99-TB3HP-TTR.aml :superman:

Unfortunately, I fear it is not backwards compatible with THB 2 devices, even using TB3 to TB2 adapters. Can you confirm or am I wrong?  :wallbash:

For now with THB_C cable connected, but I am sure it works without, including HotPlug. 

 

BTW.. I cannot connect the attached USB cable to my mainboard of unknown reason -> shortcut

Awesome, where did you get yours, at what price?

 

Does it use the same cable as the Asus TB3 (or ASRock TB3), the GB TB3 motherboard cable is slightly different, their previous TB3 card came with a cable with both connectors, is that still the case?

I had read in the past that the latest firmware update for Alpine Ridge was the last to support the Thunderbolt 2 <_<

Cool.

 

I'll wait to see if it shows up in France over the next 3 weeks. After that I'm in the US, will buy one then if still needed.

 

Edit: Now having to wait for someone to make a 27" 5K screen, using a single cable. So I could use more than one 5K screen with my Vega Frontier Edition.

There is something weird with the Titan Ridge onboard USB connector and its extension cable though, which seem mandatory for TB USB-C HotPlug.

When connecting the attached USB cable with the Titan Ridge USB header and a standard, internal USB2.0 header on my X99-A II, I observe a shortcut of the entire system.

When connecting the attached USB cable with the Titan Ridge USB header and the standard, internal USB2.0 header on my Prime X299 Deluxe, everything seems to work but there is suddenly a strong USB mouse and keyboard lag and wake from sleep breaks.

The Titan Ridge manual states that the Titan Ridge onboard USB connector should be connected with the mainboard F_USB header via the attached extension cable.

The question is if there is any difference between a standard USB2.0 mainboard header and a particular F_USB mainboard header mentioned in the Titan Ridge manual?

Looking at the manual for a Titan Ridge compatible motherboard like the H370 AORUS, the connectors look identical (although they are vertically inverted from each other). The "F" seems to stand for "Front Panel" on the Gigabyte boards.

Vertically inverted from each other?

It's just upside down :lol: it doesn't look like there's any difference at all aside from that.

When you say "shortcut" can you describe that in more detail? Are you saying that the system's power is shorted out?

As soon I plug the attached USB2.0 cable to the X99-A II onboard USB2.0 header, my Ring fans start to rotate (although slowly and with reduced led brightness) and the system turns on by itself and subsequently never turns off even if forced.

 

This just happens on case of the X99-A II. I do not observe this issue with my ASUS Prime X299 Deluxe.

As far as I know, the USB 2.0 header connector is only there to support USB 2.0 devices. I was able to connect half of the GC-TITAN RIDGE's 9 pin connector to a MacBook Pro's USB port to enable a mouse connected to a Thunderbolt port of the GC-TITAN RIDGE.

All TB3 chipset includes an USB controller (and 3.1 10gbit/s at that)

 

Why would it need a USB2.0 external connector. It's very puzzling.

I was too impatient and ordered one. It should arrive by Monday, will report then

Well, I got mine (the Titan Ridge card) today, and I'm not getting what I call hot plug.

 

Wwith the Titan Ridge card connected via the internal USB 2.0 port connection, the THB_C cable connected to the motherboard, the dual 6 pin power connectors connected, and the TB Titan Ridge aml file loaded (SSDT-X299-TB3HP-TTR.aml), I do not have hot plug, at least with my TB1 hard drive to Titan Ridge card. I just tried it and it didn't work.

Windows 10 shows two devices: my TB1 hard drive and my CalDigit TB dock (which is TB3), so I think the drivers are working. I don't see any place to set permissions, like I did in the past - I'm thinking they may have fixed that?

The drive works if I connect at boot (as it always has), but no hot plug.....:crazy:. Lets be clear about what I mean by hot plug: the ability to unmount a drive, physically disconnect it from the system and reconnect it at another time, and have it come up and mount or at least be mountable. Another version of what I call hot plug would be to connect the drive after booting and then have the drive up and mounted.  This is what I had when I owned a iMac (2012), and so in my view, that's what hot plug should mean.

I am not experiencing any anomolies with my fans, they seem to work normally, nor am I experiencing any other normalities (so far).

 

How are other folks doing?  Anybody else (other than kgp, I mean) managed hot plug so far?  If you have, how did you do it?   What did you connect that I didn't?

@meaganmargaret, in which PCIe slot of your ASUS Prime X299 Deluxe are you using SSDT-X299-TB3HP-TTR.aml? You know that the SSDT would only work with the GC-Titan Ridge in PCIe slot-4 from above and that else the SSDT needs to be adopted?

 

If the SSDT is not properly adopted to your system and slot population and crashes or is ignored during the boot of your system, you won't have any HotPlug at all.

 

Therefore, could you please upload an IOREG.sav and a "PCI" screenshot of Apple's system report for your system? Thanks in advance! 

 

BTW.. Both of your options are kind of "HotPlug" and work with the GC-Titan Ridge: I can boot my system with a TB device connected, unmount it, physically disconnect it from the system and reconnect it at another time. Boot I also can boot my system without any TB device connected, physically connect a TB device after boot and it would be automatically mounted and implemented by macOS.

So, based on your guide, my TB EX3 adapter is in 16_3, and yes that is where I also installed the Titan Ridge TB3 card.   This is from your guide on another Hackintosh website....

TBT Root por Selector                               PCIE16_3
Thunderbolt USB Support                             Enabled
Thunderbolt Boot Support                            Enabled
Wake From Thunderbolt(TM Devices)                   Off

".............."

 

So, based on your complete .AML file, which is it?  Because it used to be slot 16_3.  If it is now slot 16_4 for the Titan Ridge TB3 adapter, have you modified your complete .AML file?  Does the entire .AML file need to be changed for the Titan Ridge TB3 adapter so that it sits in slot 4 and is so referenced in the .AML file for the iMac Pro?

 

 Or, are you saying we need to modify the SSDT-X299-TB3HP-TTR.aml for slot 16_4?  (And yes, I am using the SSDT-X299-TB3HP-TTR.aml file you posted on GitHUb).  If we did that, would it conflict with the current complete .AML file?  Or would modifying SSDT-X299-TB3HP-TTR.aml eliminate any conflict between the modified SSDT-X299-TB3HP-TTR.aml and the current complete .AML for the Imac Pro?

 

It clearly sounds like one or the other needs to be modified to accomodate the insertion of the Titan Ridge TB3 adapter in slot 16_4.....

My TB-adopters always have been in the same PCIe slot, which I call Slot-4 for simplicity in my slot nomenclature but which is in fact PCIEX16_3 following the ASUS manual nomenclature :

SSDT-X299-TB3HP-TTR.aml requires SSDT-DTPG.aml, or method DTPG implemented in the complete .AML for the Imac Pro, which anyway is obsolete as it has been split into device specific system amls in the meanwhile now available on Github

 

As I say, an IOREG.sav + "PCI" snapshot would clarify your current situation.

I have followed your outlines almost exactly.  I have the same motherboard, I inserted the TB EX 3 in slot 16_3 (which you call slot 4) 2039847042_ScreenShot2018-09-26at5_41_36PM.png.9b75d25d4d52f618c3ebf32d36664e5d.png2039847042_ScreenShot2018-09-26at5_41_36PM.png.9b75d25d4d52f618c3ebf32d36664e5d.png63195210_ScreenShot2018-09-26at1_48_19PM.thumb.png.098f0e3e87c6198b3d93c401c270386d.png1117662036_ScreenShot2018-09-26at1_47_49PM.thumb.png.5d5fb2ae2f84aef3938b488e99c7208a.pngas you did.  So, I inserted the Titan Ridge TB 3 card in the same slot, slot 16_3.   I loaded the complete .aml file, with the SSDT-DTPG aml file and the SSDT-X299-TB3HP-TTR file.

 

I can't give you the IOREG file anymore because I already pulled the Titan Ridge card and re-installed the old Asus TB EX3 card.

I know with whom I am conversing with here and there :wink_anim:..

 

I don't know why you give up that quickly.. something is obviously missing at your side. You have the same GC-Titan Ridge and the same ASUS Prime X299 Deluxe as I do. TB HotPlug and TB USB-C HotPlug must also work on your system, using SSDT-X299-TB3HP-TTR.aml

 

As I said in the other forum, 2:48 a.m. here in Berlin.. I need to go back to sleep.. see you tomorrow, lady.. ;)
