Grab one here.

The best value for an eGPU enclosure right now. You can put together a perfect MBP compatible eGPU setup for ~380$ if you pair it with one of the RX580s currently selling for around 180$ on Newegg (just make sure to not get a 4GB version, which are in the mix at this price range).

This is a Mantiz Venus. At least it looks like one.

@oliverb it does... but... there is a comparison on here somewhere and they are actually a bit different, both size and material wise.

This is a good deal on a full-feature eGPU enclosure. The Gaming Station is larger than the Mantiz Venus. The side panel is held on by two thumb screws in the rear. Here are the two of them side-by-side.

Other than the steel construction and larger dimensions, the internal components are identical. There are no mounting bracket for the SATA drive in the Gaming Station but the SATA port is on the expansion board. The PSU is the same 550W SFX which should have a SATA power cable.

@ivokl24, Expansion daughter board is the same as in the Mantiz Venus so they work in the same manner.
