  1. I did email Netstor support and got this: The original Fan speed will be running up and down by loading. Since the GTX 970 is requested only 145W, the fan noise will keep around 25dB. The new design is keeping fan speed on 23~24 dB for max. so it’s only different when the GPU card request over 200W.The original Fan speed will be running up and down by loading.

    US$189 AKiTiO Thunder2 PCIe Box (16Gbps-TB2)

    I already have the Macbook so I think that I will just run the Macbook on the internal GFX or even close the computer (34" is enough ) Good info with the Molex to barrel adapter so I can use it in the case. Thinking of buy a SST-FT03B-Mini USB 3.0 Mini ITX PC Case with a 300W Silverstone ST30SF Strider SFX, 80Plus Bronze PSU so I can just take everything and place it in one case. Also with the riser: is this right? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Powered-PCI-E-16X-to-16X-Adapter-Riser-Extension-Cable-Molex-Power-Connector-/191113158263?pt=UK_Computing_Other_Computing_Networking&hash=item2c7f3b5e77 Looking on the GFX cards. So 970 is better than the 780 right? Appreciate all your help buddy!

    US$189 AKiTiO Thunder2 PCIe Box (16Gbps-TB2)

    So I look into run this setup: - Macbook Pro (2014 - nVidia 750m) - Akitio Thunder2 (Just use the cards and take everything out from the chassi until I find something that I can use) - Powered Riser - ELSA GTX 970 S.A.C. (GFX) - Corsair RM450 (PSU) - LG 34UM95-P (Monitor) Any thoughts or should everything just work?

    Thank you so much for this! I agree why downgrade? Only issue I see here is that I can't run my Thunderbolt display. So maybe sell it and buy a new one that supports more inputs. Right?
  7. Found this: Thunderbolt Expansion, Thunderbolt PCIe Expansion for Mac mini, iMac and MacBook Pro, NA-211TB, RED ROCKET-X 300w, but after research I can't go back from mac > eGpu > mac > thunderbolt only mac > eGpu > External monitor (not thunder bolt display)
  8. Hi guys, Just a quick question. I tried to search but couldn't find anything about this. I own a Macbook Retina (MacBookPro11,3) and is about to buy a ViDock Nano (320w) and connect it with a Nvidia GTX 780 or 970. I run a setup with a Apple Thunderbolt display 27" and I just want to ask if it's possible to run this setup or any other setup. I am looking intro more pure thunderbolt solutions instead via the Sonnet Echo Pro ExpressCard. Pro/cons? What a like with the ViDock is that I don't need any extra PSU just plug everything in and you have a compact solution. Also does the ViDock work with the OS X fix to run it on the main system? So more or less Windows 8.1 connected with a TB Display for gaming and OS X 10.10 with modified drivers. Thoughts? - - - Updated - - - I did read this thread: http://forum.techinferno.com/diy-e-gpu-projects/7939-villagetronic-rip-off-alert-thunderbolt-vidock-crippled-tb-ec-4gbps-unit.html but I still haven't found any good case that provides the support for the power that a modern graphic card needs or have the space for built in a PSU. Sorry if I post something that it's already in here but I am new here and I could't find anything.
