So everyones cards are down and it looks like the only way I am going to accelerate my LG 5K Thunderbolt Display is by self solving the problem myself, so I'm now looking to go back to a larger enclosure to fit a TB3 add in card into to feed my GPU through and into the LG as per @itsage 's proof of concept.

The London, UK based so will prob need postage. Hit me up if anyone has one please thanks...

@goalque ohhhhh that sounds interesting, glad they took note of my recommendations 😉 

But... although it has a second TB3 port (Like the Node Pro) it doesn't actually pass video from the GPU though it if I am not mistaken (even though Linus built a PC with a mining card with no ports to prove doing that is possible with a PC)?

Any idea of release date and price? Could still be interested...

Wait for @itsage’s review soon. Just a side note because you wanted the space grey color, and there is a slot for a standard PCIe 3.0 x4 add-in card (not sure if the Titan Ridge TB3 card would work).

Holy cow, so this is quite literally EXACTLY what I am after... will keep eyes peeled for review, hope it looks a bit nicer than the OG model.

Thanks for the heads, I have a Mantiz Venus in my Amazon basket right now due to be impatient but I'll hold off.

@goalque love your set up btw, such a beast....

How about space grey HL23T, the upcoming Plus version? 😉

Guys, can either of y’all link me to this eGPU? I’ve done a bit of Googling, but can’t find any info on a new version of this enclosure. All the info I’m finding is clearly for the old one. It sounds like it might be perfect for my setup, though.

Because there is no public information yet. It's expected to be ready within the next few weeks.

Ah… I see. Can I ask you what's different in this version compared to the original? I'll be building my eGPU setup in the coming days, and there are three things about this that seem interesting. First of all, the space grey color scheme and quietness (my enclosure is UGLY and LOUD, but I got it on the cheap at $180 and hope to be able to swap some fans and get it quiet). Second, something you said was interesting:

What do you mean by this. I know that one can use 2 separate enclosures to run an LG 5K display, by having the eGPU output into a Titan Ridge card in another enclosure via DisplayPort. Then, use a Thunderbolt port and cable to drive the display. How are you guys going to do that with one enclosure? Come to think of it, this entire thread wants to do that with a Mantiz Venus. Again, that's a single slot PCIe enclosure. How were you planning on stuffing a Titan Ridge card in there?!?! Sorry for the basic questions, but I'm a bit of a novice at this stuff!

@ray sorry I missed this reply somehow... and no worries reg basic questions, 1 we all gotta start somewhere, and 2 what your talking isn't that basic..

itsage has done just what you are asking about with a riser card and a TB3 add in card, I'll dig it out in a bit. Turns out the new Nestor doesn't have a spare PCIe slot for the add in card so its back to the drawing board for me, which is why I came here to bump this thread as the Mantiz Venus is the best option IMO. With the I/O, ability to add an SSD and space a plenty for a riser and TB3 card I think all it would require is drilling the right size holes in the back to feed cables though.

Found the guide...here

So, bump, anyone have one they fancy selling?

Got impatient and bought one new direct.
