Hey, I have a blade stealth and planning on buying this mantiz venus and evga gtx 1050ti sc. Will it work??

Is your performance drop any better now??? I want to buy this but if this machine has that big performance drop... I would go for razer core.. so plz help.

Which performance drop are you referring to?

There are these:

1) drop because of TB3 @2x

2) drop because of internal display connection

3) drop because TB3 + internal 1050 gfx card connected, even if not used

 

1, is not Mantiz specific and you will not have this on Blade

2, it seems it is related to how TB3 works, so even this one is not Mantiz related (but I'm asking confirmation from guys here in the forum, as well: it would be good if it could be a way to use the internal display without that performance drop (It's not always that easy to connect an external monitor)! But I suppose it's not possible...)

3, I don't know... Could this be a Mantiz related problem? It is strange indeed... Anyway does Razer blade have a dedicated gfx or only the Intel iGpu. If it has not gfx card, there is no problem.

 

BTW

I even found out another strange (serious) problem with Mantiz: I was testing the 1080Ti and it works well.

BUT, always when the Lenovo 1050 is enabled from BIOS, apart the performance drop as already mentioned, there are also some sudden shutdown/restarts of the Mantiz without reasons... Not a power problem for sure (even when not in heavy use and I monitored with a meter); I don't know... For sure it is not possible/advisable to use Mantiz 1080Ti + 1050 active: I would have disabled from BIOS anyway because of performance, so not an issue for me, but this one is a worst problem than that. What's this?

I will post 1080Ti stats when I'll time.

I've been thinking about a dock for my Macbook Pro, and ideally I want it so I'm only plugging 1 cable when I use it. Since this enclosure has 5 USB ports, Is it possible to attach something like this:  https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00VDVCQ84/_encoding=UTF8?coliid=I3E5PA8G00PICN&colid=2L7NHUG8WLURW  to extend the USB port count? Since the said hub has its own Power brick, I was wondering if it would work if its attached to one of the ports from the enclosure and drive 7(anker data ports) + 4 (venus) ports.

 

Thanks

Again, of course, there is the problem with the GTX1050 enabled from BIOS but not used:

Disabling the 1050 it goes from 30 to 46fps on the 09blur and 31 to 49 on the TNR01.

Again never use internal display: awful results.

 

Instead quite shocking to compare to a Mac TB3 4x: I will ask because it seems impossible it's better than the 1080Ti on pci-e 16x...!!

The first line 60 it's not real, is limited by the display 60Hz. The 18blur instead it goes from 44 (pci-e16x)  to 48 (TB3 4x) ??

So I'm not convinced on that.

 

After all, I'm satisfied with my combo Mantiz+1080Ti, even if used TB3 2x.

The only very limiting factor is the internal display problem... Any idea if possible to solve?

Is it possible to power off the TB3 connection without physically unplugging the cable?

Through a SW command, like espelling USB devices on W10?

I posted a video documenting the sudden poweroff of Mantiz with Zotac 1080Ti Mini when in combo with the internal GTX1050 of Lenovo Yoga:

relé shuts down at 26'' you hear the click and see the Zotac light powers off for a second.

 

The Mantiz is all opened... because I made a huge mod to it: I will show you next. I already finished and all working well, but I must wait for a last piece from China and then re-mount it. Smile

@Mymantiz_John,

I assume this speaks for itself, but every Venus shipped out from now will have the newest firmware, yes?

I installed the Noctua NF-R8 redux-1800 PWM today in the Mantiz Venus, using an Asus Strix GTX 1080ti OC.
Got additional M4x30 screws for that which fit perfectly.

I'm observing the following.

  • With side panel mounted (closed) the GPU Temperature remains at about 77 °C. The enclosure itself becomes quite warm/hot.
  • With side panel taken off (open) the GPU Temperature is about 65°C. The enclosure is only a bit warm.
  • It's much quieter.

With the original Mantiz Fan and side panel mounted (closed) the temperature was at around 71/72 °C as far as I recall, it was loud and the enclosure was at normal temperature (outside).

Now I'm wondering ... would you guys rather recommend putting the side panel on or leaving it off?
Also, would you rather recommend the connector on the left (first one) or the one on the right?

Late 2016 15" MBP w/ Radeon Pro 460, 2m CalDigit TB3 cable, Mantiz Venus eGPU case, NVidia GTX 1080ti.

I fitted a Noctua NF-A8 PWM Fan to mine. I used 12mm M4 machine screws / bolts to hold it in place (the bottom of the case is threaded). This meant I did need to use the screws supplied with the fan to attach the grill though. If you are buying bolts for this, get 30mm as that'll go through the guard and the 25mm depth of the fan and screw into the bottom case.
