Hi guys,

after weeks of searching I finally found a relatively cheap 1080 Ti card! They we’re sold out everywhere because of the cryptomining.
It’s the Gigabyte Aorus GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, but will it fit in a Akitio Node? It’s quite a big gpu I think?

I want to use it in combination with my 15″ Macbook Pro (mid 2015) so I need a TB3 > TB2 adaptor and maybe with an external display?
What would you guys recommend? Excited to finally test it with Octane in Cinema 4D!  😀

This Gigabyte Aorus GeForce GTX 1080 Ti may not be a good fit with the AKiTiO Node. It’s wider than 2-slot and will likely prevent you from installing the outer enclosure. There are reports of the stock PSU struggles to handle the GTX 1080 Ti. I would recommend either the AKiTiO Node Pro or Sonnet Breakaway 550 instead.
