2021 15" Lenovo Thinkbook 15 Gen 2 [11th,4C,G] + GTX 1060 @ 32Gbps-TB4 (ADT-Link R43SG * Orico TCM2T3-G40) + Win10
This is my first TB3 eGPU Setup, the first being a EXP GDC Beast v8 Expresscard used alongside an HP 2570p.
It's barebones at the moment, I have a Mini ITX case, PSU on the way to create a < 7L case for it. I will update the post when it arrives.

Pro Tip: If you don't ever plan or see yourself using the ADT-Link R43SG as a M.2 to PCIe Adapter on an M.2 slot in the future, just get the TU version, as that will give you a much neater setup with the thunderbolt port facing the other way instead of how it usually is, i.e right under. I made that mistake, but you don't shouldn't need to. Yes, I can bend the cable backwards. I will decide when I build a case around it. It's okay for now.
Plug-In, wait for it to detect, NVCleanstall, Reboot, log-in, replug the TB3 Cable, Profit.
Right off the bat, the performance difference from Expresscard vs TB3 is very visible. I like my stuff neat so I can't wait to add on a case to this.
I play FH4, Warframe, Destiny 2, so I'm pretty happy with what the setup has to offer.
