iMac Pro + eGPU, any suggestions?
You're most welcome!
ECC support is only for Pro GPUs (such as Quadros) IIRC. I think its normal. People have written multiple guides for installing and using CUDA on macOS. Please look them up.
this is nice progress. thx for updates. can you submit a confirmed build (and steps guide) when it is all said and done? curious about how you render engines perform... this build seems to be a sweet spot for not buying into AMD graphics and new mac pro.
Figured I'd report back with good news- thanks to the help of @mac_editor I was able to get it all functioning properly. I think in the end the main issues were 1. power cables not plugged in correctly (doi) 2. installing both scripts instead of choosing one and going with it. 3. make sure to install cuda toolkit if you're looking to use renderers. Octanebench clocked the 1080ti within %10 of the top scores for a single card, so I'm very thankful that it's working (well too). No hotplugging, must startup w/ egpu off, then turn on after logging in.
Will connecting an external monitor to this setup via TB3 disrupt my eGPU? It's nothing special, just 1080p, but also do not want to mess with something that's currently working well. Thanks!

Only trying can tell.
The way I unplug my node lite from MBP 2016 is to do a restart. Right after the key backlights turn off and before it reboots I will unplug the TB3 cable from the computer. Saves a few seconds at least. Hard to believe they don't have the keys backlit on the iMac Pro keyboard though.. seems like it would be a nice pro feature.
