Looks like Bizon (look at the ebay store name) has some issue moving Bizon Boxes (no surprises there), but at least that means that TB3 PCBs are available naked. If someone wants to build their own eGPU from scratch, this is not a bad option, since it is ~120$ shipped for a TB3-to-PCIe board and a cable. Just keep in mind that the Thunder3 uses the TI82 USB-C controller and thus has some issues in OS X requiring a workaround. You will also need to create your own power solution to feed the board's barrel plug in parallel to the card, if it has any additional power plugs. Then again, if you are out to build your own eGPU, you probably know that already.

This is also a trivial plug-and-play solution for someone wishing to upgrade a Thunder2 to TB3.

Want to output [email protected] out of an old system on the cheap? Read here.
Give your Node Pro a second Thunderbolt3 controller for reliable peripherals by re-using a TB3 dock (~50$).

I contacted the seller asking for international shipping (or rather shipping to Germany).
While the seller has added international shipping it costs ~46$ which is quite expensive in my opinion.
Sadly the seller says it is impossible to only send the board (without the power brick) in order to save weight and therefore shipping costs.
Maybe some esteemed egpu.io member (close to Florida?) can be a middleman for me?

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.

If a kind middleman would be willing to help out - I would like to buy one as well without PSU.
Shipped to Sweden as cheap as possible.

Well i just checked the shipping rate to where i leave and it's almost $18,then the shipping to Europe will be at least $30(could be even much more,now days there are no good deals on overseas shipping) in short "middle man" solution will cost more then if you buy it straight from the seller.Just FYI.

Has anyone ordered one or any experience with them?
I`m thinking about buying it but i live in Germany. So it would be much trouble to send it back if the board doesn`t work.
