2017 15" MacBook Pro (RP555) [7th,4C,H] + GTX 1080 Ti @ 32Gbps-TB3 (Mantiz Venus) + macOS 10.13.4 & Win10 [external_user]
Laptop: MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2017)
CPU: Intel Core i7-7700HQ CPU @ 2.80GHz
iGPU: Intel HD Graphics 630
dGPU: Radeon Pro 555
Operating system: macOS 10.13.4 Beta, Bootcamp Windows 10
Enclosure: Mantiz MZ-02 (VENUS)
Video card: MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X Trio
Fan: Noctua NF-A8 ULN 80mm
Unfortunately I made a few photos.
Replace standard 80mm fan with silent Noctua NF-A8 ULN
It was very difficult because it was necessary to disassemble the enclosure. Fortunately the new fan has rubber connectors.
Insert the video card.
MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X Trio is very large video card: 325 x 140 x 48 mm:
All specs there:
So it was very hard to insert the card to the enclosure. I removed the back cover with the PSU, then I connected PSU chords with the card and then simultaneously I inserted the card and the PSU with back cover to the enclosure.
I had macOS 10.13.3 and this guide worked well:
After updating macOS to 10.13.4 Beta Web Driver was disabled. And these steps helped me:
- Download the webdriver.sh file from here: https://github.com/vulgo/webdriver.sh
- And run:
sudo ./webdriver.sh -m
For Windows I used this guide:
It worked well.
Unigine Heaven Benchmark 4.0 on macOS 10.13.4
Min FPS: 35.0
Max FPS: 219.0
Also I played Overwatch on Win10 with ultra settings and 4k. And it was about 130fps.
I am getting the same fan. The mantiz venus fan is noisy!! I would like to know what is exactly the configuration you use. Are you using the ULNA?
P.S: what is the monitor that are you using? Cheers.
which port your system fan plugged in ?
Mantiz: ● ●
@Mymantiz_John, In what port is supposed that we should connect it via ULNA?
both are ok, close to the TB3 port one is quieter.

@external_user, how did you use installed it? Have you bought new screws? Cheers
Hi, I connected the fan via u.l.n.a. connector. I installed it with the help of rubber brown mounts.
What connector did you use? left or right?
Have you reversed the fan? with the letters label up or down?
Hi! I have the exact same set up, but my question is, can you run this script on Mac OS Mojave? or does it have to be done on high Sierra 10.13 (I already updated and don't really want to backtrack unless its necessary)
Did the GPU touch the case? I was thinking to buy an MSI RTX 2070 SUPER GAMING Z TRIO but it states 328mm in total width, that is 3mm more than yours.
Can you please give me some feedback?
Thanks for the help.
