Modifying a Blackmagic eGPU
Has anyone thought about hacking one of these and opening it to so it can use other GPUs? Theoretically it should be possible. I might try it but not sure exactly what I would have to do.
This is the only GPU I've tried that is virtually silent, supports thunderbolt displays and doesn't cause audio interference on my setup. I just would like to use a better GPU instead of the outdated RX580 or Vega 56 they come with. Any help would be appreciated. I'll be sure to document the process
The Puck always used an MXM card. I guess the new batch changed the motheboard but since the physical dimensions the same I strongly suspect it still does. https://egpu.io/forums/postid/59656/

@boomting, It's a modified MXM in order to route DP stream from the eGPU for Thunderbolt 3 monitor output. It's not worth it due to the cost and availability of MXM options. What is your absolute needs? You can put together a very quiet eGPU setup. Thunderbolt 3 monitor output is more challenging but possible.
@itsage, I would like to modify an eGPU with a Titan Ridge controller so that I can use it with an XDR display. I have a W5700 but it causes audio interference when using it in a Razer X Chroma. The only eGPUs that don't cause audio interference when using the XDR display are the Blackmagic eGPU and Sonnet Breakaway Puck 5700 since they both use a Titan Ridge controller. To be able to use a full size desktop GPU with a Titan Ridge controller would be ideal
