i recently bought Aorus gaming box (GTX 1070), but really cannot get it to work in both Windows or MacOS.
I really don't know what i should try... (already tried all scripts available on the website). If you have any suggestions please, spam in the comments.
I could replace GTX 1070 with R9 nano (inside Aorus gaming box). Would that even work, and more importantly would it work plug and play with MacOS?

Thanks for taking ur time!

Take a look at this thread. The R9 Nano should work with the Gaming Box enclosure and PSU. In macOS there's no native eGPU support for the R9 cards. There are workarounds for it though. Read through the stickied topics in this Thunderbolt macOS sub-forum.

I can confirm the r9 nano + aorus works fine.

With the r9 in the Aorus box, does it work natively with Mojave? Or do some tweaks still need to be applied?
