Brilliant, and do you have a link for that enclosure thing?

There you have it: https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a230r.1.14.220.7472a2779sgkHP&id=562199114522&ns=1&abbucket=7#detail

I also found a new Thunderbolt adapter which simplifies everything in just one board, however, the price is astronomical.

the prices listed are equal to around 10 euros, surely that's not right? how much are they?

Yeah, my bad, I did a mistake with the currency exchange. It's around 150 dollars... not too bad!

Can do it for less AND get the flexibility of having a NVME-to-TB3 adapter that could time share when not using the eGPU:

ADT-Link R43SG or ADT-Link R43SL + Jeyi LEIDIAN .   Skip the Jeyi unit if get a deal like this:

eGPU Setup 1.35    •    eGPU Port Bandwidth Reference Table

 
2015 15" Dell Precision 7510 (Q M1000M) [6th,4C,H] + GTX 1080 Ti @32Gbps-M2 (ADT-Link R43SG) + Win10 1803 [build link]

Has anyone tried this on a Mac? It shows up as LT-LINK NVME under system report, but the card I connect to it doesn't show up. Its a Blackmagic card that according to the specs only pulls 10W.

@curts, maybe it needs more power. Combine a PCENGFF-N03 and NGFFP4X-N01. Or find something like this:

@joevt, You are correct. This board doesn't have 12v. I applied 12v to the proper pins and it worked. So yes something that gives the PCIe card 12v power makes it work and the PCIe card will show up in OSX.

Hi @curts, would you mind share which pins you use to provide powers? Are they on PCIE connectors or on Thunderbolt board?

I got this same board but it seems it does not support Thunderbolt 2 - Thunderbolt 3 adapter. I asked seller and he mentions that it is due to lack of power.
