I came across this eBay store today with these pre-made power cables. They are perfect for building an eGPU using AKiTiO Thunderbolt enclosure and Dell DA-2 power brick.

Update: Removed due to inconsistent quality and bad customer service.

Side note: These cables are custom made. I bought one, but it was no good, and it caused the DA-2 to short out. 

Up side is, the seller is very responsive on ebay, I sent him pictures and he confirmed he goofed up when placing the wiring and is sending a replacement. Someone on the other board got one that was wired incorrectly too. Once I get a confirmed one working I'll post pictures so people can compare.

Thank you for letting us know, nkh004. Do you have pictures of the cable? How's the quality?

Quality seems pretty good. I tugged all the wires to make sure they were seated properly. Everything is cable wrapped and heat-shrinked.  

I'll post pics of the good one so there's no confusion in the future.

Providing it works like it's supposed to, it's a good option if you don't want to go through the hassle of making one yourself. 

Edit: 3rd time's a charm. He sent the wrong cable. Expedited shipping on this one, but he offered a partial refund for the hassle.

If anyone needs help and custom cables, let me know. But I can't make them cheaper than the eBay ones since I have to order all the parts individually.

@Dschijn if I recall correctly, you're in Germany? If you'd like to start a post on custom cable services, I can link you to our Partners page.

I'm interested too, how much for a da-2 to pciGfx + Thunder3?
