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.
