Hello eGPU community! I've been lurking on this forum for quite some time and figured it was time to post (and share my latest build).
I know there are some post minimum requirements (photos/PMs/edits) so I'd hope to satisfy them here to not spam up the other topics and threads.

I'm going to paste some of the steps of the build guide in this to get the post count up if that is okay.

Installation steps

Note: In this build, I already had a pre-existing bootcamp partition set up on my SSD, so I figured I might as well try to see if it would work instead of taking the prudent measure to perform a clean installation of Windows with the various tools on this forum. Your mileage may vary, but this worked for me with Windows 10 Pro, Build 17763 using the hotplug method.

Since this is a Turing card and I had updated my computer to Mojave, this build will not cover any MacOS installation steps since I did not intend to use it that way.

Since this was a normal air-blown 2080 Ti, some assembly was required with the hybrid kit.
