Installation steps 

 I had to update my bios to the latest version for the Thunderbolt software to recognize the dock. Make sure you plug in the egpu dock into the laptop before starting up your laptop.

Benchmarks 

 I used 3d Mark Time Spy at 1440p:

CSGO runs at ~200 fps with dips to 180 (1440p low settings)
Rust runs at ~100 fps (1080p medium settings)
If you have any games you want me to test just ask!

Comments 
The build quality of the eGpu frame is incredible! It feels really solid and high quality. The included TB3 cable is 1.5m. The side panels come off easily and have filters on both sides. The two cooling fans keep the case well ventilated and are super quiet!

Thanks for the build guide. I'm curious on how it runs on Apex legends ?

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.
