No, unfortunately this is the only GPU I have since I bought it to build this eGPU system, it is brand new.

I have played with some configs from Radeon Software and realize that some of the changes make the problem be less frequent. For example, I changed the options for the

- Radeon Enhanced Sync

-Surface Format Optimization

-Virtual Super Resolution

-GPU scaling

-HDMI link assurance

The best composition with these options that I found was with the Radeon Enhanced Sync and the Surface Format Optimization both turned on, meanwhile, others were off. This config make the problem less frequent, with a mean of appearance around every 75 seconds (yes, I calculated it with a chronometer). This result was far better than any other setting, which I have played a lot. 

With other combinations, the frequency of the problem had a mean of 20-40 seconds.

I did also a GPU stress, and a test to see power consumption. GPU is working fine, as well as power consumption. 

Meanwhile, I could realize that HWinfo reported errors for the PCI/PCIe bus, and the number of errors was increasing every time the problem comes up. Every time the screen blinked or goes totally dark, I did an alt + tab and checked the number of errors. They pretty much matched. It is like 2 blinks corresponding to + 2 errors reported.

Now I am on the step to find these reported errors on windows (first step to get things neat). If you have any idea, just let me know, every help is welcome.

Edit ----------------

Finally, I have found what probably is causing these errors by the Event Viewer. The complete report of the error is:

"

A corrected hardware error has occurred.

Component: PCI Express Root Port
Error Source: Advanced Error Reporting (PCI Express)

Primary Bus:Device:Function: 0x0:0x1D:0x0
Secondary Bus:Device:Function: 0x0:0x0:0x0
Primary Device Name:PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_A118&SUBSYS_115A1462&REV_F1
Secondary Device Name:

"

I have checked Google on how to prevent this error from coming up again, but I was not successful.

Here is the performance of the eGPU, everything to be very normal...

Last weekend I updated my drivers to the latest adrenalin 2020 because I wanted to use amd link. It worked good at first, but after a restart everytime I booted up a game my GPU and R43SG turned off. I went back to my old drivers and it worked fine as always. My drivers were adrenalin 2019 from july, I don't remember the exact version right now.

Have you tried with older drivers?

Great build! @cagalos, what did you use for building the eGPU case? It seems like some sort of acrylic. Can you provide more info about building the case in general.

Thanks @tilchev ! About the case, I had a friend of mine try to replicate this acrylic egpu case https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000444404546.html?spm=a2g0o.productlist.0.0.2f235b3dZTKTlV&algo_pvid=305efe70-1d54-42cb-8d16-cebd555e4ce0&algo_expid=305efe70-1d54-42cb-8d16-cebd555e4ce0-2&btsid=0ab6fa7b15878647009502551e21d7&ws_ab_test=searchweb0_0,searchweb201602_,searchweb201603_

Indeed it was acrylic and lasered cut, I don't believe he has the schematics anymore. I could ask him if you wish. At least my version was kind of unstable, so I had to use a lot of tape.

@cagalos, hello there may I ask what model is your board? I wanted to buy R43SG for my MSI GL62 6QE and I don't know if this is compatible with my board. I have Micro International Board.

@r_g, hello, do you mean my motherboard? I can see it is from Micro-Star International (MSI). I think the only requisite is just making sure your motherboard has the right m.2 key and I think you do have the right one.

@guilherme_vilhena, How did you bend your cable or did you cut the case?

@rodrigo_miranda, I did just a small cut in the case. Not boring me at all

@guilherme_vilhena, the same as @cagalos did? Can I ask for a picture to make an idea of the hole size? I've already cuted it, but still doesn't fit well.
