  • Both the Breakaway Box 550 and the MSI GTX1080 Gaming X are quite. Around 53 db under load. Often around 45-50 db. 
  • The power delivery over TB3 is capable of maintaining the charge level of the battery but from what I can see it does not charge the battery. I have a Belkin TB3 dock and it is the same story there, so it is probably a thing with the Lenovo 920. Or maybe it is like this the power delivery was supposed to work?

Well the Breakaway Box is charging my Lenovo 920 again, so there seem to be something going on...
