I managed to get my box running closed. I've got ventilation on the gpu side, and the fan flipped around to pull air out. I'm not terribly concerned about over heating, but I'd like to know for sure.

Is there software that can monitor the eGPU temperature?

 I’m posting a photo of “Walter White” in your build thread so everyone has a reference.

I think you took care of ventilation fairly well. The side cut-out would allow cool outside air to circulate hot air from the GPU out the back. I don’t see any overheating concerns.

Are there temperature readings during heavy use that concern you?

No concerns. I'm just wondering how to actually monitor the temp. I'm not overly familiar with windows, so I don't know if there's built in SW I can use, or if there's something from nvidia I can download.

GPU-Z has a temperature monitor and it work for any GPU, internal, external, or otherwise. It also has logging and history collection capabilities. Another good utility is HWMonitor, which will monitor temps for all components (CPU, iGPU/dGPU/eGPU, HDD/SSD, Motherboard sensors and so on).

Good deal. Used GPU-Z, under 98% load hitting about 62 -66 deg c.
