@crotaphytus112, The Plugable USB-C to NVMe is a USB only device. It says it's Thunderbolt 3 compatible because you can connect USB devices to a Thunderbolt port. You cannot connect an eGPU via USB.

 

Mac mini (2018), Mac Pro (Early 2008), MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015), GA-Z170X-Gaming 7, Sapphire Pulse Radeon RX 580 8GB GDDR5, Sonnet Echo Express III-D, Trebleet Thunderbolt 3 to NVMe M.2 case

@joevt you are right. Justtried. It doesn't even show up in "Attached Thunderbolt Devices". I will have to order a proper NVME Thunderbolt enclosure then. Unless @nando4 have other suggestions?

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.

For any europeans; I managed to find the WAVLINK Thunderbolt 3 NVME enclousure at amazon.de:

https://www.amazon.de/-/en/Intel-Zertifiziert-Thunderbolt-WAVLINK-Festplatten-Caddy-UASP-Unterst%C3%BCtzung/dp/B0823X93SS/ref=sr_1_19?dchild=1&keywords=Thunderbolt+3+M.2+NVMe+SSD&qid=1589175284&sr=8-19

It is not that much more expensive than buying it from China and they have pretty much next day delivery (for impatient people like me...)

I've managed to get my hands on a Mantiz Venus from which the Thunderbolt board isnt working at the moment.(trying to get a hold of Mantiz to see if i can get it fixed/replaced) and build everything inside the the case and use the internal PSU since the PSU Still worked only the Thunderbolt 3 / Motherboard died somehow. 

Sold my Rx5700 and replaced a rx570 and using a HP EliteDesk 800 G4 Mini instead op my 16" inch macbook packed with a 5500m 8Gb. Thats why insold the rx5700 and replaced it with a rx570 for some casual gaming on the HP mini pc.
