Are you running this setup daily? How is its stability? Are you satisfied with the hardware?

Hi, @franklesniak
I'm running pretty similar setup: https://egpu.io/forums/builds/dell-precision-7530-quadro-2000-gtx1080ti32gbps-tb3-win10-pro-xacrett/
The build is used every day and is extremely stable, except for minor driver problems at the very beginning (solved with full reinstall).
