So Yesterday I got my new setup with the Sapphire vega 64 and the razer core x.I first tried the guide to use it in bootcamp but till now I can not detect the graphic cards at all.Win10 detects the core x,but in Mac OS it doesnt work for me.So I just thought first trying it on Mac os to be sure that it would be detected.
Everytime i connect the enclosure I get a notification that I can not use this device and have to connect it to a thunderbolt port.Funny....I only got thunderbolt ports lol..Even on Mojave no plug and play I the only one to witness this problem?:(
I really want to thank everyone on this forum for their knowledge and passion on this topic.I am so stocked to get this done.

thank you

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.
