Ok, so its working in WIN10 om my macbook with GTX 1080 installed in Omen Accel.

And another thing, I'm not sure in MacOS, But in windows both screens just turn black in the middle of loading windows if i use ports on the left side of the macbook.

I've also installed ASUS GPU Tweak II, and i'm able to overclock everything as normal.

I had one issue tho, the cooling inside the does not work properly, so i had to install macs fan control for windows

Downloaded new drivers, installed clean with SIP. Reboot to Recovery, disable SIP. Reboot to install app, reboot.

Same result. Different combinations of the system seeing the GPU correctly but either generating a usable built-in screen with a cursor-only black secondary screen, or black secondary screen and "logged out / blurred" primary screen. No ability to use external display.

Thunderbolt 3 Macs, Sonnet and OWC eGPUs, 4K Displays, etc

 So interesting result on the internal display. I changed from separate displays where I moved the window to the internal via keyboard shortcut to mirroring. Still worked, however GFXBench Metal crashed out in that configuration and refused to run tests on the eGPU. GFXBench OpenGL ran and still seemed to work as I'd expect, but the Metal app wouldn't run. Going back to separate displays it worked just fine.

question...do I have to enable SIP every time I update the NVIDIA Web Drivers?

Does anyone know if there is a way to use overclock tools in MacOS? My graphics card gets really hot and starts throttling, but in windows its no biggie cause of the tools available for OC.

And for MacOS, is there any easy way to use the internal graphics card?

I need to be able to use the internal gpu when I'm not at home, and right now, it says PCIe and it does not work

Success on a Macbook Pro 2017 15" Radeon Pro 560/Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 8 GB in a Sonnet eGFX 550 under both macOS High Sierra 10.13 and Windows 10 RS3 1709.  For me Windows worked fine, just plugged in the thunderbolt cable and installed GeForce Experience and used that to install the latest drivers.  Under macOS I followed the instructions in this thread, I had to boot without the thunderbolt cable attached, then hot plug at the login screen.  After logging in the internal display worked fine but the external display (An old 27-inch LED Cinema Display) remained dark but I could see that the back light had come on.  macOS detected the 1080 and saw that the display was attached.

I brought up display preferences and turned on mirroring and the external display came on, turning off mirroring caused the external display to go black again.  So I clicked "Gather Windows" and was then able to access the settings for both displays.  Setting both displays to "Default for display" from "Scaled" caused both monitors to come on and work as expected.  

Hope this helps,

- Doug

Hi, i have the same MBP but with a Mantiz Venus and GTX1080 Ti, could you describe what exactly did you did to get the external monitor to work? I've been trying like crazy. Thanks.

Thank you yifanlu for sharing this great solution! Here is my experience/problem with your solution:

System: Late 2014 iMac 5K 27", Akitio Node, nVidia 1080TI, Apple TB3->TB2 adapter, Dell 27" 4k P2715Q, Mac OS 10.13 High Sierra, FileVault protection enabled

Symptoms: After initial filevault login screen, both iMac and internal screens go black (eGPU plugged in) and system does not seem recoverable

Works after: Workaround of plugging in eGPU after logging in, then log out/log in (reboot does not work)

Solved: Longstanding problem of being unable to use eGPU with nVidia and getting 5120 x 2880 resolution (woohoo!)

Outstanding: Having to hot-plug, really hoping there is a solution!

If there is any info/logs or anything I can provide please let me know, and I'm happy to test for the Late 2014 iMac 5k.
