Will be this enclosure enough to power the new Asus Strix RTX 2080 ti OC? I know this is 300W GPU max power and the new RTX 2080 ti is 275W, so not sure if the OC will push to the limit this enclosure. Thanks!

@sharpk18 You will have to give it a shot and let us know whether it works.

@itsage I asked Asus Tech Support and the said it does. But still I feel the question mark... I decided to go for the Nvidia RTX 2080 TI Founders Edition which is 260 Watts. The shipping is scheduled for the 10/18. Once I have iand install it, I will keep you posted. I just sold my Asus Strix GTX 1080 TI which didn't have anything wrong. Just wanted to experience with the RTX technology which seems impressive.

@itsage Finally got the Nvidia RTX 2080 TI Founders Edition and installed to my Asus XG-STATION-PRO and it works fine. Idle temperature shows between 28 and 36 C. And playing mode (Call of Duty Black Ops) shows between 55 & 65 C. The fans work all the time but not noisy in my room which pretty quiet mostly.  See pictures!

@itsage My Nvidia RTX 2080 TI FE Fans Spinning full speed at booting and randomly. It does for a minute, then runs normally. The temperatures are between 25 & 65 Celsius so far. I asked Nvidia Tech Support and they said that that card spin at full speed is normal for auto-testing. They also said that the RTX 2080 TI FE is not made to run on eGPU. Said it was tested only to run on an PC and/or workstation. 

What do you think?

 Razer CS said also Razer Core isn’t compatible with Rtx cards, i used 2080ti, two 2080 (fe and evga), no problem at all, i use evga that is my final choice for almost a month without issues at all, open notebook lid and all rgb synced... Oops I meant my egpu setting works. Yes I noticed also FE 2080 runs on full speed when I wake up the laptop from sleep (open lid), or at first boot windows not for long but longer enough to notice like around maybe 5 seconds, other cards are also spinning higher but not on full speed and also not long. Like evga stoppable fans, it spin first load for like a second and stop (due low gpu temperature).

@sharpk18 Thank you for sharing your findings. I noticed the cooling fans run full speed at initialization on both RTX 2070 and 2080 FE cards. I think they are normal behavior. Before the cards can work, there's a brief delay for the system to provide a handshake with eGPU enclosure.

@goalque do you think it's possible to mod the power switch on the enclosure to add something similar to a 24pin PSU short? I use a bat switch with a 3' cable on the PSU for my thunder2 setup and was hoping to do something similar if I upgrade to this so I don't have to unplug and plug every time I need to reboot.
