Installation steps

1. Open both Covers with small Torx screwdriver
2. Connect SATA cable
3. install SSD to holder and attach it to like in the picture below

4. Install graphics card and lock it with bracket (pink in the picture above)
5. Close enclosure with the 4 screws
6. Remember to check all screws that they are tight its look bad if you don't put cover screws tight enough
7. Connect cables, install drivers and ready to use
8. If you are using SSD or HDD inside of the enclosure remember to make new partition in the Windows 😉 (  )

Benchmarks 

3D mark Time spy 1.0 - 6744 (  https://www.3dmark.com/spy/5506595 ) - I was use 8 Gb RAM in this test

Comments

I am very satisfied to this configuration now I have very powerful and handy ultra book with long battery life 9 - 12 h when I travel. When I am on home i have desktop computer to play and make CAD models, it is also pretty handy have 1 Tb more space to games and stuff. I successfully played Skyrim special edition ultra high graphics over the Thunderbolt 3. Next I try to play OverWatch from external SSD + plug RJ45 to box trying to test how much TB3 bus can take.

Nice mod to add the SSD to expansion board. This eGPU enclosure shares the same main board with Mantiz Venus so the SATA port was there but unpopulated. Enjoy your setup!

Difference between Mantiz and VisionTek is that Mantiz is made of aluminium and VisionTek is made of steel.

I see the minus as well. Would you mind using engine valley and engine heaven? Those are free to use benchmark softwares.

Ill do have the same problems with the pictures. I cant see them.

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

Same issue for me with most of the photos. Maybe use imgur.com?
