I just wanted an alternative to a SFF pc so that I can use it whenever I travel and also a space efficient solution.

The enclosure itself is very silent, the included 92mm fan has PWM and start spinning in heavy load.

I do not know if the results are good or bad, please let me know your opinions. 

I did all tests in hurry because the notebook will be replaced with a new one due to a screen issue.

@badea_cosmin_gabriel, Thank you for sharing this build! The results look great with the Thunderbolt 3 bandwidth on Mastercase EG200 reaching 2,9XX MB/s.

Your Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 should be comparable with my 14:

It should also have a AC Adapter with 65 Watts and it has the same CPU like mine (Intel Core i7-1165G7). But it have 2 Thunbolt Ports and mine have only one (which is the only Option to charge it).
Did You have any Issues, when You run the Cooler Master MasterCase EG200 without plug in the Lenovo AC Adapter (So that the Power for the Laptop comes only from the eGPU Case)?
 
I am asking because my Lenovo E14 Intel Gen2 has a AC Adapter with 65 Watt and the Cooler Master MasterCase EG200 only delivers 60 Watts PD (which is the only Option to charge it, when I would use the eGPU and so 5 Watts are missing).

Thank You
