GIGABYTE Gaming Box RX 580 8G Graphic Card eGPU (GV-RX580IXEB-8GD) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07CCK527Y/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_b0beDb5CA0ARY
Edit: used through Amazon is $50 cheaper. I got my gigabyte 1070 egpu used through Amazon as well and it's been working fine
Picking out graphics cards is easy right now; it's "whatever's in stock".
In all seriousness, I just switched to an eGPU setup and bought the Razer Core X. I love it, tons of power and cooling. It's very large. Included Thunderbolt cable is really short, I bought this one and it's great. I think Razer also sells a 6 footer for $60 but it's often out-of-stock.
I'm just using the GTX 970 I've had since 2014. I'm really glad I made the move to an ultrabook with eGPU.
or get an entire PC with GTX 1060 for the same price
It’s a thermaltake cooling pad I got off amazon:

well, I ordered something similar to the DeLOCK (https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Q13025-WBTUO-LM-141X-V1-0-Drive-M-2-NGFF-to-PCI-E-X4-Adapter-Card/32583718637.html?spm=2114.13010608.0.0.P41vPW) , it should arrive in a few day. I also got a powered pcie riser in order to plug the card. I'll tell you if it works
Yeah, I have the same laptop + eGPU EXP GDC V8 via Expresscard (40euro) + Gainward GTX 970 Phantom (90euro) and I can play it at "Epic" settings and 60fps.
(Btw PSU is Dell DA2 20euro)
Depending on your graphic card, but don't forget to check if it needs an extra cable (5euro) https://www.banggood.com/6-PIN-Graphics-Card-Cable-for-EXP-GDC-Beast-Laptop-External-Independent-Video-Card-Dock-p-1032795.html?
... had to wait more 20days to receive it..
Oh and I'm playing with internal screen.
The Sonnet Puck is smaller than the Aorus Gaming Box, but once you factor in it's 160W(for RX560) external PSU or even larger 220W PSU for the RX570 model, it's size starts approaching the Aorus Gaming Box which has an inbuilt PSU. If you have a Puck PSU awaiting you at your destinations (eg: work and home), then the Puck is the smaller travel companion. Something to consider if planning to travel a small eGPU.
No, you cannot just cut a thunderbolt cable and solder stuff together. The laptop nor dock will not accept power without proper PD communication. You can get something like this and solder a 12v line to a barrel adapter BatPower 65W EM3 PD USB C Converter Work with ProE 2 Power Bank External Battery Portable Charger Compatible with MacBook Pro USB C MacBook Air HP Dell Razer Surface Laptop USB-C Tablet and More https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01FCWLMOI/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_MPHQKFP4B227VVVQ0CGY
The amount of effort and money you’ll put into this, could you probably buy a used (no gpu) AORUS gaming box and steal the board inside for your project. It will have USB ports, Pd for your laptop
Edit: also, usb 4 does not accept thunderbolt gpus and as of now does not have a working pcie tunneling mode (although it is in the spec to allow it, no one has turned it into IC)
We're not using it right now (because the setup changed, IDK, I think there isn't room for an undermount in the new setup), but we bought this at the recommendation of someone here and undermounted our Core X to the underside of the desk - it was a really good setup, helped cable management, and it had room to breath down there, although I guess you do have the RGBs and you lose that being on your desk (we sadly do not have the Chroma).
This is the laptop stand under the closed laptop on the desk at the right.
But you're probably asking about the mounting tray that I attached to my three-monitor stand.
You can snag the Node RIGHT NOW off Amazon. AKiTiO got a small batch out and it is going FAST.
here you go, enjoy

No, I have yet to have any problems really. In some games I notice the GPU is bottle-necked slightly by the connection but I still, for example, played Firewatch in 4K on very high settings.
I remove it each time I need to bring my laptop somewhere (which is really infrequently as I am at University and it just sits on my desk). I remove one screw and take the cable out. I then put my wifi adapter back in and it's a standard laptop again.
There are a couple of different considerations - somewhat separate from how you keep your XPS, the eGPU will perform generally the best if you connect a monitor directly to the outputs on the GPU card itself, and turn off the internal display on the laptop.
The second thing is it depends a little on what you're doing. If you're doing something that uses the GPU extensively but doesn't really hit the CPU, it might not matter, but some gaming really hits both, and so then you really want to prioritize cooling your laptop, and you might use a CPU temperature check to see how your CPU temp is (like OpenHardwareMonitor). You probably will get the best cooling either/or in tent mode, open in laptop mode, but on a stand, or possibly on a cooling pad.
> If I use the Laptop just like a regular PC and plug the Monitor in the external GPU this isn't an issue, right?
> That usually takes a toll on Laptops in the long run so I might use a small barebone PC/ext.GPU setup in case I have to worry for my laptop
Consider renting a server instead of buying a PC. If you are GPU heavy, consider https://www.paperspace.com/pricing
google 'nvme extender' and there will be many to chose from. Pay careful attention to the key version and length. There will be something suitable.
For example, here
That long PCB can likely be cut off fairly easily too. I don't see any components where the drive mounts.
Any reason you are opposed to the loop straps? I have the loop straps on my core x on a standing desk with no issues.

From my Razer Core-X running a 5700XT I use a Belkin 2 m Thunderbolt 3 USB-C to USB-C Cable (Thunderbolt Certified, 40Gbps, 5K, 100W, Type C 3.1)
It was one of the few certified cables running at this length.
Note; This is on an imac. But I also run Win 10 over Parallels.
Sweet thank you! Sorry to get back so late but I wasn’t sure if I was gonna spend the money on an egpu but I saw this deal on amazon https://www.amazon.com/MSI-Radeon-RX-580-8G/dp/B078Q78L93 for a radeon rx 580 8G v1. Would that card work fine? I don’t really understand the difference between it and the non- v1, but it seems like a good deal with the rebate and the 25$ amazon gift card. Would that one work fine?
And then the other thing is, is there really anything that ends up being more cost efficient than the aorus gaming box? even with this really solid deal, all the other enclosures seem to cost too much more to make it under the aorus cost
Honestly, do yourself a favour and grab a pc, even if it means saving up a bit more. Your future self will thank you.
If you are a casual gamer, get yourself an R5 3400G processor and build something around it. Its integrated GPU is good enough to run dota2 high settings at 60 fps. You could always upgrade to a dedicated GPU in a future
I just got XFX RX 5700XT after watching several YouTube videos like this.
Using with 2019 16' MBP, LG UltraFine 5K and Moshi DP to USB-C cable didn't encounter any problems in the macOS part.
I haven't tried the Bootcamp yet.
No it's 12v, but it spins up just fine
> The culprit ended up being the included braded cable that came with the Chroma Core X inside of the box (now i am not sure if its original or not, because i ordered Chroma Core X from Amazon Warehouse, the cable inside has "uni" logo) but it seemed like the insides were untouched.
Yeah. The Razer Core X supplied cable is neither braided nor branded "Uni".
But Amazon does sell such a cable:
> Sort it out razer!
Sounds like an Amazon Warehouse issue rather than Razer.
Here is another, cheaper, option by Cable Matters for 110$.
You can also likely re-use these things for the same purpose. Would need to add a TB3 cable and a power-supply, however.
EDIT: I bought one of the HP docks for 30$ via "make an offer". I have a spare TB3 cable and a spare HP power supply - I'll report back on hooking it up to TB3 port on my Node Pro.
I just searched “Laptop Stand” on Amazon
This is the laptop stand in the picture
It’s for a MacBook, the Razer Blade Stealth has a tiny bit of wiggle room, but it’s not just going to fall out.
I plan on buying the Razer Chroma Laptop Stand because it has the USB ports, and since I have the Core X I have to keep plugging and unplugging my keyboard and mouse into my laptop.
Did you buy it from the same company? Try a different brand. I also had the same problem as you and ended up going through the same research process, and I ended up purchasing this 6 feet TB3 cable that's worked for me since and never had problems with. I also use the Aorus gaming box, the 1080 variant, which shouldn't make a difference.
There is this one which does have USB 3.0 also.
$429 USD for a 4 port HDMI USB2.0 KVM setup. (not really the greatest) but a lot cheaper then your orignial post.
If Ethernet not an option then get an intel PCIe card like this:
I’d stick with something generic like this to avoid driver issues, particularly if it’s hard to get your dad’s attention to troubleshoot.
This is the riser (except that i am using a mini pcie at the end of the cable instead of what is in the picture)
6pin connected to psu
The psu should be enough to run the card. Had a 3080 hooked up to a Core X Chroma and had no problem besides the PCI-E board dying on me lol. For you 8-Pin issue you can buy this Y-Splitter from Amazon. COMeap GPU VGA PCIe 8 Pin Female... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B072JR4H3N?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share

This is the eGPU Case:
Iuse this works ghreat for me https://www.amazon.com/WD\_BLACK-8TB-Game-Drive-WDBA3P0080HBK-NESN/dp/B07XVB7G99/ref=sr\_1\_4?crid=PFA70XK257KM&keywords=wd+black+usb&qid=1659625098&sprefix=wd+black+usb%2Caps%2C178&sr=8-4
Alright so, I found this. I know it is cheaper, but I would just like to know if it will work. ETA Prime used it in this video. If you think I'd be better of buying a more expensive product, I think I will do that. But I would like to save money where I can.
The Razer Core X was on sale Refurb w/ 2 yr warranty on eBay from Razer themselves, about a month ago for $170 - that's as cheap as you're going to get for a complete enclosure.
If you don't mind a little DIY and have a spare power supply, you can grab an M2 PCIe adapter and roll your own setup.
As others have said, however, anything above a 3060 Ti is not going to be cheap, the xx60-series is usually the mid-range and best ROI on FPS gain per dollar.
That wouldn't work. The DVI port on your graphics card is for video out to a monitor, not for the connection between your PC and the graphics card.
You need to buy a proper Thunderbolt 3/4 eGPU dock.
You can buy full TB3/4 enclosures such as the Razer Core X. They will have a power supply included and some will even have extra USB or ethernet ports that you can use.
Or, if you want to get it set up for cheaper, you can get a barebones TB3/4 eGPU dock such as this one:
You can probably find more similar choices on Aliexpress. Of course, the barebones docks won't have a nice outer shell, and you need to prepare your own power supply.
You can't swap to nvidia gpus. So what you buy with the puck is what you get. So if you buy the RX560 you're stuck with it. so get the rx570, or better yet, the RX 5500/5700... or even better yet, get a proper gaming laptop.
For the RX560/570 versions;
First you'll need to make your own battery bank, use some really chonky, and quality Li-ion cells. None of those knockoff chinese cells. You'll need one of those 40A BMS boards. You'll want at least 12 cells if you go 3S, you can probably get away with 9 if you use those 26650s.
You can either go 3S and use a voltage booster. a 15A or more booster with a fan, or a one rated for higher amperages. Make sure to use shorter cables. You really need about 20A booster, but you can get away with a 15A and a small fan.
Or you can use something like a 6S and use a 20A buck converter. It's easier to drop voltages than boost them. If you're going with a 6S battery bank, you'll want 12 cells. You can use li-poly, but i probably wouldn't. Either way you need cells in multiples of 6. So 6, 12, etc. (6 is specific to high capacity li-poly packs)
You will need these. They're a pain to install. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01HI3Z9AW
And you need to know the polarity or you're going to fry your puck.
The RX5500/5700 need higher power so will need to go at least 6s, 12cells of 26650s.
You will need to figure out how to put it all together. There aren't any normal battery banks you can buy that'll work. I have the biggest one you can buy before going up to something like a lunch-box battery like a jackery.
And my battery didn't work as is, I have to use a separate BMS to the rest of the battery bank.
I did this project because "why not" I don't recommend anyone do it, it was ultimately pointless and expensive. If you're smarter than me, you'll just get a proper gaming laptop with a 3070 or 3080 in it. Like a legion pro or something.
I know this post is getting old but I came across this post while looking for a carrying bag myself.
I wouldn't use it for flying (would use a hard shell case too) but I came across this bag that fits my eGPU shell just perfectly for car travel. It's made for some kind of lights, I didn't really care but dimensions looked good so I ordered it and got it in the mail today. I'm very happy with it so far. I use the removable dividers as extra padding underneath and the side pockets to store my cables.
I have a Sonnet eGPU Breakaway Box 750, so if you have something the same size or smaller, it should work for you too. Anything bigger probably won't fit.
I just got a good carrying bag for my eGPU today!
I'm in the process of moving and, rather than transport it in the bulky box it came in, I wanted to get a nice carry bag for my eGPU. They don't seem to make bags specifically for this but I found bags for desktop computers and mini computers. I didn't want a case with a bunch of extra space in it so that rules out the desktop bags, and the cases for the mini computers were too square shaped and probably too small. I tried looking at camera bags but most were too small.
Anyways, I came across this bag for some kind of lights stuff or whatever but the inner dimensions seem to be just what I'm looking for. I ordered it and got it in the mail today and it fits perfectly. If my eGPU shell was any longer it probably wouldn't fit. There's also two side pockets on either side where I throw my cables and I used two of the dividers that it came with for extra padding on the bottom.
You can use one of these (other orientations exist from other vendors) to reduce the risk of wearing out the port. I use one of these with a TB3 dock for one of the laptops in the household and it works just fine.
Won't help with the hassle, but can save a port. There isn't a TB3/4 KVM, so there isn't really a solution for you: You will be moving a cable (or switching between cables) in some fashion, unfortunately.
I just put together my eGPU last night and it works beautifully so far.
I have an ASUS Laptop from 2017 that has an Intel i7 8th Gen, 16GB RAM, Intel HD Graphics and Nvidia GTX 1050 2GB VRAM. Pretty good specs and works great for older games, but the graphics card doesn't have enough punch for big modern games. That's where my new eGPU comes in.
For under $700, here's what I got:
Sonnet eGPU Breakaway Box 750 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08Q7KF1FR/
EVGA GeForce RTX 3050 XC
Besides picking a GPU that will work with your system, you'll want to make sure the case has PCIe port that matches your card, a PSU with enough wattage, and the space to fit your card. The case I got has just more than enough space to fit the dual slot thick GPU I bought.
Hope this is helpful, and good luck!
Is this your specific model? Dell re-releases its models yearly and in different revisions so we need to know the model year or the more specific model number which you can find in system information in Windows.
If so, it supports Thunderbolt 3 with 4 lanes of PCI-E Gen 3.
Seems like your use-case is a natural fit for an eGPU. Pre-rendered CGI is affected far less from the bandwidth/latency limitations than gaming, so you should expect near desktop-GPU performance and with the higher TDP maybe even better performance than a laptop dGPU especially lower-watt models could supply.
Does this laptop have a 2.5" sata bay? If so I would take the existing ssd and put it in the 2.5" bay using an adapter like this and then use the m.2 ssd slot for the egpu because the m.2 ssd slot will have better performance and avoid potential bios whitelist issues
Something like this that both can use connected to one of the monitor inputs
Then the Laptop connected to egpu to other monitor input, the hub is just an example get what you want with the specs you need. The Chroma X hubs are not that great and use bandwidth, so it's better to connect separate.
Confirming that the ground loop isolator ($10) I just installed cleaned up the data bleed through perfectly. Running the speakers off of the headphone jack on the laptop alone I hear every "thought" the laptop has in the form of essentially modem chatter, hiss and buzzy clicks every time the storage is accessed or the screen gets updated.
With the ground loop isolator, it's all gone. It's finally gone. I've been living with that buzzing for so long, it feels like my computer's locked up because I can't hear it's insides anymore, but that's seriously not a complaint. Just going to take a minute to get used to NOT hearing the backstage chatter.
This is a good and reliable one

Ah, so long as you don’t intend to plug it in or remove it while the PC is on then you can probably piggy-back on one of the PCI slots power lines.
What you are considering isn’t too far off from something both old school PC enthusiasts and cryptominers have done where they use a second power supply to power a GPU.
You can find adapters like this: BAY Direct 2-Pack Add2PSU Multiple Power Supply Adapter (ATX 24Pin to Molex 4Pin) and Daisy Chain Connector-Ethereum Mining ETH Rig Dual Power Supply Connector https://www.amazon.com/dp/B077VQL5NT/ref=cm_sw_r_awdo_H0WGDAP52X4R1GEYMH1Y?psc=1
Some due diligence should be done to see if the adapter is only concerned with the 12v line how much power is drawn by the sensing line when in operation.
Common sense says it should just be the 12v line and it shouldn’t use much power, but sometimes engineering requires counterintuitive solutions.
do you think this card would work with the gaming box? https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B09CBS8ZF3/ref=sw_img_1?smid=A19N3NI8X4F24J&psc=1
Yeah think I'm about to do the same, it's a Dell laptop and found a Dell Thunderbolt dock that handles dual 4K 60hz via 2 DisplayPorts, costing me around £308.99 but can get around £50 in VAT back through a business expense, should be arriving later this week, so fingers crossed it works!
Dock I'm purchasing via Amazon: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B08XNJLRJ1/ref=ox\_sc\_act\_title\_1?smid=A2OGN29VLE4ZSD&psc=1
Thank you so much for sending those over, unfortunately I am based in the UK so those docks you sent over wouldn't be suitable for myself.
I had a bit of a look myself and was able to find this option:
Auimce Docking Station Dual Monitor, USB C with 2 HDMI ([email protected])
It doesn't have DisplayPort outputs but I don't think that would be an issue?
The other downside to that is having to use a stupid "patented" detachable designed USB C cable.
Was struggling to find other solutions that offer at least regular USB ports and an ethernet port that don't use DisplayLink tech.
> Going back to option 2, would you have any recommendations for a Thunderbolt 3 dock that supports dual 4K at 60hz? And what do you mean make sure it has outputs matching my screens? Do you mean the full resolution of the monitors?
So here's a dock that supports dual 4k60hz displays based on their specs, and isn't $300. You will need TB3 to DisplayPort adapters, however, to go with it, since it is effectively a Thunderbolt hub.
For other options you need to look up docks which are:
Thunderbolt-based, as opposed to USB-C.
Have two DisplayPort outputs and state clearly that they can support dual 4K monitors at the same time.
I also see this as well: https://www.amazon.com/RX-550-Computer-Graphics-DisplayPort/dp/B08VHWFWSD/ref=sr_1_5?camp=1789&creative=9325&keywords=Sonnet+Breakaway+Puck+RX+560&linkCode=ur2&qid=1648639210&sr=8-5
AMD Radeon RX 550
Cheapest I can find right now is $300. Outside of sales such as Black Friday, the only way to get close to $200 would be to buy used.
If that laptop has a m.2 port, you could try this https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07XYZ89J7/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_ZYHBRR8TYYAZWFQP6XEB
You will need external psu
I did the same thing. The first one I bought off Amazon turned out to be dog shit. I'd say try a different cable before doing anything super drastic. I got this one and it works perfectly:
I'd engage in the following troubleshooting process:
If none of this works, then it is unfortunately probably the thunderbolt dock itself and that would need to be replaced.
A reasonably cheap usb hub switch (like this one) makes it pretty easy to switch the mouse and keyboard between two computers. I imagine you could daisy chain a usb to ethernet dongle off of it as well.
Switching monitor inputs is a bit more of a pain, but if you fully turn off each laptop before switching, you could just set each monitor to automatically detect which input is currently in use.
I used something like this years ago,
But basically the KVM switch is where your monitors and keyboards plug into, and then those plug into your computer 1 & computer 2.
Then basically each time your switch, the KVM disconnects the monitor and keyboard and switches it to the other computer, and back and forth.
If you had this, would you try it?

It just depends on what PC Case you get. If you're going to vertically mount then probably need a slim fan. Just get all parts at once and with amazon you can at least just return it if the fan doesnt fit.

I worded that really badly, I need an external GPU because this computer's GPU is pretty much non existant. The CPU and RAM are okay but the GPU fails to run even the simplest game like krunker.io. Where would I get one of these express cards and what kind would I get?

Anything alse probably won't work, you would have to take out your m.2 ssd and buy a sata ssd instead if you want to use this.
I was wondering the same thing and hoping something like this would work in the Core X with a 2021 M1 Max 16" Macbook
OK it looks like the way you would plug into an eGPU would be through an ExpressCard slot (check to see your computer actually has this port, it should judging by a google search)
You would need this part to convert from ExpressCard to PCIe x16 (what a graphics card plugs into): EXP GDC Beast (Expresscard Version), this costs at least $46 USD
You would also need a power supply for the graphics card, this could be a power supply for use inside a computer (ATX PSU) that you could be able to salvage from an unused desktop computer, or buy a new one ($50-$100?). You should do research into this - different graphics cards need more power than others so you should buy a power supply that can give enough.
Then you will also need the actual graphics card to put in the eGPU. I'm not sure how much would make sense to spend because of how old your computer is. With it being almost 10 years old, you may find that the CPU and RAM are not enough to play many games.
Sure :) There you go for the furmark benchmark It's usually used as a stress test tool so the temperature will rise quickly but you shouldn't have any trouble as the test is not long enough to reach the maximum temperature. Once the tool is installed, I would like if you could run the 1080p preset and tell me the result :)
You might try HwInfo to check the PCIe connection between the eGPU and the PC as a starting point.
What are you using to get a figure for your expected results?
Can you open up HwInfo and monitor the eGPU while running one of the more demanding games?
I can think of a number of reasons you are not seeing the figures you are expecting. But the best starting point is to see what is currently going on with the PCIe connection to the eGPU.
I'm wondering if something may be dropping the speed of the port for some reason as well as wondering how many lanes are being used.
There is no such thing as a direct PCIe connection on modern ULV. All 12 PCIe lanes the platform offers are routed through the integrated PCH, which is connected to the main CPU through the 4 lane DMI.
Could you check HWiNFO to see how the Thunderbolt controller on your 9570 is connected?
Yup. Nothing I can think of that you'd need Pro for unless you want full disk encryption or need to manage the machine as part of an enterprise fleet.
Not quite the same setup but I have an Gigabyte Aorus Gaming Box GTX 1080 with an external SSD plugged into the USB hub on the eGPU. I havent noticed any percievable slowdown vs plugging the SSD directly into the Macbook and everything runs fine in terms of booting etc.
The new bootcamp tools are a bit of a pain though, this is how I did it:
Hope this helps somewhat
https://www.tinkercad.com/things/3z5jRmS9lMI You need to use M3 threaded inserts in the 5mm holes on each end. I would recommend using PETG or ABS if possible for their heat resistance, I am trying blue PLA to see if it warps first. Also, you need to print 12 of those H-key shaped items from this to snap the doors together. I also super glued them in place for a strong bond.
As a previous comment indicated, your ppi is much lower, it's basically a wide screen 1080p monitor, versus being equivalent to 4k size screen (in Retina or HiDPI mode).
You can calculate ppi with tools like this:
That LG is designed for gaming and most games these days are still optimized/designed to run at 1080p, this screen just gives a wider cutout for a more immersive (and curved!) experience.
You can actually get good 4k screens that will match your Retina experience for not too much. I have a Dell P2415Q, it's not USB-C, but it's a very nice complement to the Retina screen.
I wouldn’t mind if it’s fine on daily usage. Note cuda-z seems actually never got an update since 2015. It may some incompatibility issue with your hardware, it’s just my thought though.
Crack It open and try to find your wi-fi adapter. If you can't Tell, Just google the numbers written in the sticker in the back of the part directly, like this
What matters is If it's a micro or a mini PCIE slot. Micros wont fit, as
they're Just about the size of your fingertip and the EXP uses a mini port.
But really, prolly not as my 2016 laptop has a micro port and i had to use a 2012 one.
I have run fortnite on a few settings, just to test it out as I’m not really a fan.
Details here: https://www.notion.so/eightarmedpet/7460661cce3e4cc3b98fd2e24abe35f2?v=b97d67731f95457aa21d6d2f0deea233
The main problem with fortnite on macOS is FPS drops and spikes.
I’d go 2018 Mac mini and either a 580 or Vega 56 pulse.
It's hard to come up with something without seeing your current setup but what if you put your egpu inside... a cage? I can't stop laughing as I'm typing it but it could honestly look cool and you wouldn't have to worry about temperatures. This pet crate looks dope. It's a bit too big but it's just to illustrate what I meant.
Poking around, thinking maybe this combo:
This one CREAMIC BTC-37 Mining Motherboard, Mining Machine Motherboard CPU 8 Video Card Slots DDR3 Memory Integrated, VGA Interface Low Power Consume for Mining Machine https://www.amazon.com/dp/B092J315GM/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_8XZ2G8SA1RHYYCJ6W3KK?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
Yea there are longer cords! I bought this one here! It's six feet, does 40Gbps, and supports 100w charging. It's a bit on the pricey side, but you should never cheap out on good thunderbolt cables. Def want something intel-certified.
Firstly you got way more adapter and cables than you need. Question: do you wanna connect the egpu through mPCIe, m.2 or tb cable? If one of the first 2 are correct go for the EXP GDC BEAST (https://www.amazon.com/External-Independent-Expansion-Graphics-Notebook/dp/B07L4GP5PT). If you want through tb tho go with the m.2 option and plug it in your tb to m.2 adapter you already have. ADK link is kinda known to have some issues sometimes and I even problems. Truth is that I’ve been using the EXP GDC adapter for 2-3 years now and swapped many cards in and out of it. No problem. As for power on it you will only need to connect its package coming adapter (24pin + 6pin ) 24 pin so the adapter can use the psu, and any additional power requirements for the gpu aka 2 6pin or 2 8 pin or 8pin + 6pin.
ITX case: About 40$ for a basic one.
A decent PSU: About 40$ for a reasonable one.
ADT-Link R43SG-TB3: 120$ on a good day.
TB3 cable: ~20$ for a cheap passive one.
Sonnet Breakaway Box 750 - 300$ on Amazon.
Something like this is your best bet.
. But be forewarned OEMs like Dell often lock their bios to refuse to recognize anything in the WLAN slot that isn't a wireless module. I've never had good luck with Dells bios cooperating for general purpose pcie slots.
