So after a long hiatus...I'm back.

Weapons of choice:

It was pretty smooth sailing, just plug and play. I did run into a Code 12 with the video card, but disabling the HDMI audio controller frees up enough resources to initialize and use the GPU. Results below plus some pics. The tests were done on the internal display (did not have the cables to hook up externally).

Nice! Yours eGPU might be one of the first build with the GTX 1050Ti. Do you have photos of the setup to share?

Nice find! Though, I kinda wanted to make something fully contained within the Thunder2 enclosure hence the 1050ti.

Attached is a photo the general setup. Sorry for the quality.

EDIT: The monitors in the background are connected to my desktop. The laptop and eGPU are only connected to each other.

Hey krazyazy,

great setup you have there!  Would you consider to post your implementation
on the /r/eGPU subreddit under  https://www.reddit.com/r/eGPU/comments/5hng3m/compendium_of_egpu_implementations/ ?

I would link back to you here of course.
It would be greatly appreciated.

Greetings
