    Powercolor Devilbox eGPU issues

    So basically I'm using this Powercolor Devilbox enclosure to power my Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Yoga (second gen I'm pretty sure). I have been using it for almost 2 years without any problems, but it has just started this weird power issue. Whenever I connect it to my laptop, the GPU fans will either start up and then lose power or immediately lose power. Then randomly the fan starts to wobble some as if it's being sent intermittent power. To see if it's just the GPU, I plugged in my keyboard into it and the RGB lights work on it but it does not type. The weirdest thing is the case fans for it and included LED strips work perfectly fine with no sign of power loss (the fans are connected via PWM to the "motherboard" while the LED strips connect via Molex directly from the PSU). Also when the GPU is connected to an external monitor, the display seems to disconnect and reconnect really quickly back and forth as if there were a loose connection (which there is not since I have used this monitor with other setups including the cable). I don't know what to do since the warranty expired. The GPU I use is an EVGA 970 SC that I'm pretty positive it's not causing the problem. BTW: I know there was a firmware update for this product but was never able to get it to work so no I did not install it

    Upgrading 970

    So now that we know about the 2080, is the +$800 worth it? Like do we think that it’ll be able to push 1440p 144hz or do we have to wait even longer for benchmarks?

    Upgrading 970

    I can wait and probably will be able to afford it, I'm just worried about not being able to get ahold of 2080 (that's apparently what they're calling it now) because of the crazy want for it. As for games, I play any type of game really. But I want the graphics card to almost be overkill and just make sure any type of game I want at 1440p 165hz with high to extreme settings.

    Upgrading 970

    So I have a EVGA 970 SC right now with a 1440p 144hz (165 overclocked) monitor and was looking to finally upgrade my graphics card. I want to either get a 1080ti or 1180 but I don't know which. I really want to utilize the full potential of my monitor for any game possible, and looking at benchmarks/specs the 1080ti comes close but not quite. However, 1180 could cost more if I'm not immediately able to get my hands on it or still might not be enough for the performance I want exactly. Waiting for the 1180ti might be out of the question (but still possible). I've also seen a suggestion to get a 1080ti and then get another to SLI when the 1180ti comes out, but SLI has been getting worse from what I've heard so I'm basically stuck not knowing what to do. Any thoughts? My rig: 4790k w/OC 4.6GHz Corsair H115i 16GB 1866MHz DDR3 ASUS Z97 SABERTOOTH MK1 EVGA 970 SC [cannot get it to OC reliably ] Rosewill 1000W PSU
