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

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:

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 ?
