I was testing the RX 580 Gaming Box with 2018 13" MBP last night so didn't have time for unboxing photos. I accidentally took a photo with the RTX 2070 + RocketStor 6661A frame in this photo. You can see it's very similar to the Gaming Box in size.

how do the specs on this compare to the akitio node lite (which also seems you could daisy chain as it has 2 x TB3 ports)? As they are similar in price I'd imagine someone looking at this would want to consider the node lite too.

@esatamacmodular They're very comparable. AKiTiO Node Lite is chubbier and sturdier when used without outer enclosure. The two slot mount gives it more stability too. Highpoint RocketStor 6661A is longer but too narrow to fit anything but single slot cards.

 There are no molex power plugs on this main board. The only power input is the barrel plug in the rear similar to AKiTiO Node Lite board.

Damn..... looks like I'll leave mine as is. Roll

@jelev It's actually an USB-C angled adapter. They're reasonable priced and work great with Thunderbolt 3 cable. Confirmed to provide full Thunderbolt 3 bandwidth.

That Zotac Mini is not so mini with 210mm. The INNO3D GeForce RTX 2070 Twin X2 leads this time: 196mm. And that's still an inch longer than an ITX motherboard...

Will this enclosure support more power (greater than the listed 25W) through the PCI-E slot if you replace the 60W external brick with a larger one?
