      iMagic pi mini ITX Case with AKiTiO Thunder2 PCIe Box and GTX1060 mini
       
       
      Dears,
      I would share with you that idea/project: a custom solution to make inside the iMagic pi mini ITX Case my EGPU powering a MacBook Pro 13" Late 2013.
       
      I cannot see something like that
       

       
      and that...
       

       
       
      and... it is the reason I purchased from Amazon the case below (still not arrived):
       

       
       
       
      As first some details and benchmark about my current system, a Macbook Pro 13" Late 2013, i5 with 8Gb of RAM and 256Gb PCIe SSD.
       

       

       

       
       
       

       
       
      - POST UNDER CONSTRUCTION -

       - Akitio Thunder2
       - Zotac GTX1050Ti
       - Samsung T3 Portable SSD - 250GB (for Windows To Go)
       - DC 12V/12.5A from Aliexpress
       
      Setup:
       - Install Windows 10 as Windows To Go with Rufus;
       - Install Bootcamp;
       - Reboot to Windows with Akitio connected and install latest Nvidia Driver;
       
      System Start:
       - Connect External SSD with Windows To Go to your Mac;
       - Power up and hold down ALT keyboard;
       - Connect Akitio and wait 2-4 minutes;
       - Choose Windows from boot menu;
