Drop me a PM here on the forums and we'll figure something out. I have a shiny new ZBook G4 I can use to update your enclosure FW, and a Starbucks nearby to meet at.

Give your Node Pro a second Thunderbolt3 controller for reliable peripherals by re-using a TB3 dock (~50$).

Thank you @Yukikaze and congrats on the new ZBook G4! We're looking forward to seeing your eGPU implementation with it.

I should've put some spoiler tags 🙂 I'll be working to set up the eGPU setup later today. I plan to benchmark the Thunder2 first (via TB3->TB2 adapter) before I re-wire everything for the Mantiz board. Spoiler: This is why I was asking about small-sized mATX cases in the thread I opened yesterday 🙂

Thank you all for your willingness to help. We still need many more participants so that enclosure firmware update isn't such a challenge as it is right now.
