Hi guys!

 

It is my first post in any sort of forums anywhere, ever. I hope everyone is keeping safe and is well.

I have an issues. I just got kinda luck to get my hands on a Asrock Taichi RX 6800 XT. I already had a Razer Core X enclosure. I received my eGPU today. However, unbeknownst to me, the GPU needs three 8-pin power connectors. My eGPU enclosure only has two. What do I do? Return the GPU? Sell it? Returning stock as a 15% restocking fees, which would equate to over $300 Cry I was looking around and found conflicting reports online. Some saying a 8 pin EPS ATX 12V Female to 2 x 8 Pin EPS ATX 12V Male 30cm would work, while others saying that it doesn't. Anyone got any ideas please. Any solid help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Warmest regards

Ali

 

PS: I was running a Sapphire Pulse RX 5700 XT in the Razer Core X via Bootcamp on my MacBook Pro 2019 i9 2.4GHz, 16GB RAM and 1TB SSD. If that helps.

@basud, Get a PCIe power Y adapter/splitter to produce more PCIe power connector. I've used something like this with different graphics cards and enclosures and they worked fine.

@itsage, 8 pin EPS ATX 12V Female to 2 x 8 Pin EPS ATX 12V Male 30cm is this what you are referring to as a Y adapter/splitter? Thank you for replying to my post

@basud, not EPS. PCIe. The shapes of two of the pins is different.
