Fan not working

Hey all. I have an AMD RX 580 in a razer core x connected to my macbook pro with touchbar. The fans on the GPU never go on. The razer core fans turn on when plugged in but the 580's never turn on. Any solutions?

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

i have done some basic testing with my node lite eGPU and haven't seen the fans come on except for the initial plug in of the TB3 cable. I always assumed it was because temps were so low. You could find a program where you can set fan curves and see if they come on when setting a low threshold. In any case, monitor your temps and if they pass 85C on the eGPU then I would not run for sustained periods.
