Hey guys,

i have just build my eGPU set up,

-2015 Macbook Pro Retina 13"

-Akitio Node

-Zotax GTX 1060 Mini

-450 PSU

 

I installed everything perfectyly and everything works both in Mac OSX and Windows 10 Bootcamp, after 2 days of using it without major issue(other than succesfully booting up), today something weird happend. While i was playing CSGO(Less than 1 hour), i hear some flickering sound, it was weird but i choose to ignore it, then after a while the CSGO stopped suddenly. I ran it back and it continue without any problem.

After playing i intend to check my GPU by testing the Unigen Heaven benchmark, while testing for about 5 minutes, i hear more flickering sound, my GPU fans spins weirdly, sometimes it spin very fast, sometimes normal and vice versa and suddenly it all stopped. My egpu fans shuts off and windows cant detect my external gpu hence benchmark was stopped.

i restart my mac and run the benchmark again, after a while the eGPU turns itself off again. I then thought it was some benchmark issue, then i play H1Z1, also around 5 minutes, my eGPU turns off again. The last two days, my eGPU has never turned itself off, and it was very stable, no matter what load i give it, it will run perfectly fine.

Anybody can shed some light?

Thanks

Perhabs overheating ? Do you Perhabs have a pc to test out your Graphical card under the same circumstances ? What poweradapter are you using for your thunder 2?

Do you have any USB 3.1 devices connected to your system? Check Device Manager and see if there are any non-eGPU devices connected underneath a Thunderbolt Bridge or similar. My system (MBP '16 + Akitio Node + Nvidia Titan X) is substantially more stable after USB 3.1 hub is disabled in device manager: with it the system will freeze with a buzzing sound and reboot on average every 1-2 hours, without it the system is rock solid and has never frozen or rebooted.

No - I tried it originally but after disabling the correct devices in device manager it's not needed. 13" function keys MBP with 16gb RAM.

No, no hub at all. Yesterday the eGPU worked just fine and no issue and today the auto shutdown issue emerged again. Any idea why?

I think it has something to do with my power delivery for the akitio box, i read online that i can use a pcie riser(with power), and i do not need to power my box because the adapter already gives the power? Is that true?

I got this issue on my Akitio Node also.

I am using iMac 5k and patched DSDT file on my Windows 10.

When I running benchmark program (FurMark) with a super high loading.

Running on the Extended Display (Which the Node connected one) is no Auto Shutdown Issue.

However, when the benchmark program is running, I try to drag it to my Main Display (The iMac Monitor), after 5-6secs, the Node will auto power off (The PSU will also cut off power), I have no idea how is happening there, because in normal case, I cannot turn off my Node power unless I switch off the power button at the back of the Node.

(When the power button switched on, no matter the computer is switched off, the fan of the Node PSU supposed to keep running as well.)

I can upload a video to Video if someone interest which Node or any idea on it.

Thank you.
