@elonesh, It should work just fine. You may have to disable the dGPU in Device Manager prior to connecting the eGPU just to make sure Windows is using the eGPU instead of the dGPU. You can look through our build guides for example of systems with both dGPU and eGPU. This workaround is essentially replicating a system with iGPU only.

So if I understand this correctly then PCIe 4.0 is a no go.. what 2TB NVME m2 SSD do you guys recommend?

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

@Kurt B, Best to go with one sided IC NVMe drive so that you can use the mounting bracket. I would also suggest getting a new thermal pad to cover the 2280 drive so that heat transfer can be spreaded out to the bottom case.
