@oliverb I agree it's a very nice enclosure. Paired with a silent-mode capable GPU, this is the quietest eGPU solution currently on the market. Too bad there's no Power Delivery.

The Power Delivery was almost a show stopper for me. It's the only problem with the enclosure, ok, it's a second cable now. The alternatives with sufficient PD weren't exciting (GamingBox: Very loud and no uprade possible, Razer Core X: Loud , huge and no ports).
As I wrote in my build post, another problem theoretically could be the 300 Watt limit, but not for the 1080 Ti.. so what?
