AORUS Gaming Box as external RAID enclosure?
I have a Aorus Gaming Box 2070 and took out the GPU to stick into my nephew's desktop (luckily found a 16x slot that didn't block the fan!). I now have an empty box. Does anyone have anty experience running a 1 or more nvme SSD's inside? I'd prefer to use one of those RAID PCIe cards. My desktop machine doesn't have a lot of physical space since I put multiple GPUs in it. Any recommendations? Predictions?
@dregpu I'm not sure if NVMe RAID PCIe card would make sense in a Thunderbolt 3 enclosure. A top tier NVMe drive can easily saturate the Thunderbolt 3 bandwidth already (22Gbps) so adding a RAID would only complicate things. I'd keep it simple and get a large capacity NVMe drive + an M.2 NGFF to PCIe Adapter.
Do you think the Zotac mini RTX 2070 Super would physically fit? The PSU is probably inadequate as that card requires 2 power plugs (6 pins + 8 pins) instead of just the 1 (8 pins). I measured the gaming box case and it seems like it can only accept 200mm cards and the super is about 210mm. Then again, I saw in another post that the regular RTX 2070 mini can fit in the gaming box, so I'm kind of confused.
