Hi guys, new member here thinking to step in to TB3 eGPU:) i have nice Dell XPS13 9370 i7 and got a chance to buy TB3 Akitio Node with GTX1080 inside. But my concern is, that allegedly the closure doesnt have enough power for the laptop, not sure never tried it. But on daily basis i am using WD15 Dock with 130w PSU, so wondering what it will happen if i connect eGpu with its own PSU and WD15 dock with its own PSU at the same time? will i fry my laptop ?

Your XPS 9370 will be just fine. It will only receive Power Delivery from the device with the highest amount.

well hopefully, really don't want to fry my laptop and i am new in to this USB C and TB3 world:) anyway, how does EGPU impact CPU? will it run on full blast ( fan ) while gaming or not?
