Hello guys, I am currently having problem passing the Power-On-Self-Test. Recently, I bought Razer Core X to replace my current enclosure which is Akitio Thunder2. But, with my new Razer Core X, I am not able to pass the POST. However, with my Akitio Thunder2. I can pass the POST easily. What should I do? I already tried different method like delayed plug after chime and also hold option key then plugging in the Razer Core X. But I still not able to pass the POST. Not even once.

My current setup:

Macbook Pro Retina Late 2013 15” maxed out

Akitio Thunder2 (modified) (TB2-TB2)

Nvidia GTX 1060 SC 6GB EVGA

New Razer Core X (with Apple TB3-TB2 adapter + Akitio TB cable (TB2-TB2) > cant pass the Power-On-Self-Test.

I just moved the GPU from Akitio to Razer

@so_handsome, sorry, but what is a power-on-self-test? I’m not sure I understand what exactly is failing.

It’s old Macbook Pro thing with TB2 where you have to plug the egpu before booting Windows to make it recognize the Thunderbolt device. However, When powering on the Macbook it will do the Power-On-Self-Test where the Macbook checks all the peripherals are working/turn-on properly before going to the next step of booting. It’s actually common to get this POST problem, but if you keep retry (force shut down the mac and try boot it again with egpu turn on) it would pass the POST. It’s kind of 50/50 success/fail rate. But when I tried to boot my Macbook Pro with Razer Core X, it never pass the POST no matter how many times I tried to boot it. With my previous enclosure which is Akitio Thunder2, I can pass the POST easily, well sometimes I fail to pass the POSS though, but eventually It would pass. I dunno what’s the problem. This is my 1st TB3 enclosure. Maybe there’s something to make it work?

@so_handsome, oh, ok. I’ve never had that issue and Ive had a razer core x for about a year now. I plug everything in before turning on and it just works.

Hi, as far as I know, the macbook 15 pro retina 13-14 years(thunderbolt 2)  with a discrete card and without does not support thunderbolt 3 (egpu) cases with nvidia cards in windows, radeon cards work there are examples of assemblies.
