    Nope no idea whats up because on my system using stock TB3 firmware my TB3 HDK/Razer Core/Akitio Node all work fine and the GPU's get detected. How usable they are is a totally different story, since we arent really rich on PCIe lanes.
    8 lanes each GPU -
    4/2 lanes - NVME
    And then TB3 needs another 4.

    7700k only has 16 Lanes.

    My point being, even if you do get it working, its a total waste.

    The two GPUs get 8 each, the CPU has 20 total so the remaining 4 go to the chipset. That can then connect to lots of devices like usb, SATA disk drives, nvme drives and thunderbolt but the peak throughput for it all can't go past 4x gen 3 pci-e lanes worth.

    Without shipping I think it ran about $220 USD if I'm not mistaken. Overall, good fit, I had to remove all the foam to the top and bottom and left two rows of cubes on the right side, and one row of cubes on the left (ez pick foam or whatever it is called).

    Too bad I still can't take this on a plane, but at least I have good protection if I take it out of the house.
