 Hey y'all. I just got my Mantiz Venus today. I haven't get my graphic card yet but i thought i can at least use it as a docking station these days. Here is when i find some problem: After plugging in the Thunderbolt 3 cable in my laptop, my laptop shows up "Try improving the USB connection"(I'm sure Mantiz's power is on). I also tried my usb flash drive on Mantis and it has no reaction.(The usb driver is good because it can work when directly connected with laptop) I'm pretty sure that my laptop has thunderbolt 3 port (type-c with a thunder logo on it). I checked my device manager and i can see that my laptop recognise "TBX-550CA". This is an annoying problem for me and i totally have no idea on how to solve it. 

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.

When you see the message “Try improving the USB connection”, it typically means the Thunderbolt firmware on your computer is outdated. It cannot recognize the Thunderbolt device (in this case Mantiz Venus enclosure). Check for new BIOS and Thunderbolt firmware updates from your laptop manufacturer support website.

as we discussed in messenger, it is related with the Laptop, please check and look for the support for getting a update driver and ask for why they don't have Intel Thunderbolt Certification.
