[SOLD] RTX 3080 FTW3 Ultra + Mantiz Saturn Pro II (custom build)
EVGA RTX 3080 FTW3 Ultra ( https://www.evga.com/products/product.aspx?pn=10G-P5-3897-KR) paired with a custom Mantiz Saturn Pro II ( https://mymantiz.com/products/mantiz-mz-03-saturn-pro-egpu-v2)
GPU is brand new direct from EVGA, sealed in box (never opened) and can be registered for EVGA full 3-year warranty (best in the business). I can install the GPU and provide test specs for you if you wish, or you can review my 3090 build to put to rest any concerns on performance: https://egpu.io/forums/builds/2020-16-macbook-pro-rp5600m-9th8ch-rtx-3090-32gbps-tb3-mantiz-saturn-pro-ii-win10-bmagnien/#post-87168
TL/DR: the 3090 build above outperforms desktop 3090s in some tests, stays extremely cool (66c at max benchmarking load), and is fully stable and compatible (tested in Bootcamp, on a MBP). I feel confidant extrapolating this data for a 3080 paired with native Windows PCs with 4 lane TB3 capability, but am happy to provide test benchmarks by request.

Asking Price: Please make reasonable offers or ask any questions in comments or Private Message, or email: email@example.com
I'm not looking to make a profit here or to take advantage of current stock issues with the 3080 cards. I'm not a scalper and will not be selling this at scalping prices. I'm looking for reasonable offers for all included parts, plus my time in the modifications, assembly, and testing, and hoping to find a buyer who will appreciate the plug and play nature of this custom solution.
Asking Price: $1500+shipping. Not looking to sell separately. This was a personal project that I'm proud of and want someone to enjoy.

Reason for selling: Pursuing a custom SFFPC as my next project since I enjoyed the successes I enjoyed with this project so much!
Will work with buyer to determine final shipping size, weight, speed, and cost depending on location. Selection of pics below, happy to take more if buyer is looking for more details. Note the fans pictured in these photos are different from the final options I've listed above that I have currently installed. It took me a while to find the right ones for maximum airflow, lowest decibels, and best aesthetics:

@bmagnien, This is an excellent FS post. The cooling modifications are well worth the cost and effort imo. I hope you find a buyer soon.
@bmagnien, That great! Hope you're staying around and share your next project with us. We have an appreciation for atypical computer setups.
Hello, have similar setup but with an EVGA RTX 3080 FTW3 Ultra.
Could you give me tips to get those excellent Time Spy score (I can't OC more than +145 CPU and +500 Memory, Time Spy Score 14116.
@bmagnien, I was wondering if you had any issues with the EVGA card running its fans at max speed when the eGPU was connected to a powered-off or sleeping laptop? I have this issues with a RBS + Razer Core X + EVGA XC3 3090. I used to have a 2070 Super FE and did not have this problem with the same setup. EVGA customer support has been useless--they say an eGPU is not a supported configuration despite, to the best of my knowledge, never once claiming this anywhere on their website. I am trying to isolate the issue to EVGA firmware or Razer Core X firmware.
