I have 2x AORUS Gaming Box 1080's that come with the box, the GPU, bag, cables, and I think I have the boxes for both. $525 each, but if you want both, I'll let them go for an even $1000, or best offer. Price includes payment fees and shipping to continental US / Lower 48. 

They both work great under linux and Windows 10 (you suck, Apple!). They're both in new-ish condition. I don't see any dents or marks, but I suppose there might be  minor something here or there. Here's my build guide using these things:

Getting a Razer Core X and RTX 2080Ti, so the 1080's need to go in order to make room. I might hook this up to my crummy MBP13 2011 just for giggles! 🙂

Hey. I know this isn’t what you’re offering, but would you be willing to sell just the enclosures? I’m also on a MacBook, and having a compatible card is pretty important for me. For that reason, I’m looking to put a Vega Nano or future Navi Nano In here. I have little need for the 1080.

Obviously I know this will make it harder for you to sell the 1080’s on their own, so I understand if you’re unwilling.

@dregpu If you decide to sell the Gaming Boxes empty to @ray, I would suggest buying AKiTiO Node Duo. You can run both GTX 1080 ITX from these Gaming Boxes in that enclosure. It needs a beefier PSU is all. The x2 PCI slots don't really hinder compute performance.

@ray I’d be open to doing that. How much were you thinking?

@itsage Interesting. I’m guessing there’s no way to enable nvlink? The mini 1080’s seem like you could enable SLI if your motherboard can handle that.

@dregpu SLI requires an x8 connection. I have not used NVlink in the RTX cards but I don't think they work through eGPU enclosures.

@itsage The 2070's in the gaming boxes don't have an NVlink port. The 1080's do. What I find confusing, is the interplay between SLI and NVlink. Can you use one without the other? I was wondering if I bought the NVlink bridge and connected the 2 1080's, would they be connected even if the mobo (ie eGPU enclosure) doesn't support SLI.
