Hacked and whacked my Thunder 3 to get Titan-X in.

Using external power wired to run the thing and extra power to PCIE slot, still slightly less reliable boot-wise than Razer (Razer did 5/6 boots into OS X while Thunder3 did 3/6)

I'm guessing if I went back to barrel only it would attain usual Thuinder2 1/6 or 2/6 record.

Not blaming Akitio, pretty sure this is Intel and Apple gimping it to death to keep prices up.

Node will tell us some things, as will the replacement that meets Apple's high standards.

Apple has made it clear that meeting Intel's TB3 standard isn't the same as meeting Apple's TB3 standard.


Requires the TB3 enabler from our friend kid2010 and doesn't charge the MBP while the razor does. (see before with both and after with just akitio)

Just not the right setup for eGPU, wait for Node or better.
