HP Omen Accelerator on MacBook Pro 15' 2015 Iris?

Hello,

I am a long time lurker and was reading a lot about eGPUs, since I am finally going to buy one. 

The main purpose for the eGPU is Final Cut Pro X. In the future I would love to get myself a VIVE or a Rift.
Right now I do have a Macbook Pro 15inch (2015) with Iris only. 

I got myself a GIGABYTE Radeon RX 580 Gaming 8 GB and a TB3 > TB2 Cable. I am currently looking for a good enclosure, and do have a chance to get a very cheap Omen, that I unfortunately cannot test before buying. 

I read a lot here and on reddit, but noone could confirm, that it works with TB2.

Is someone using a similar setup and can help me with the following questions?:
Is it working properly?
How about the SSD and the USB Ports, are they working?
Is it working with Windows 10 (for VR Purposes)?

Thanks in advance!

Hallo again,
Just for future egpu enthusiasts that try to make the omen work with tb2. It doesn't work. The omen remains black when connected via tb2 with my MacBook 15 2015. Sold it and bought the razer core x. I will share my experiences in another post.
