[Help Needed] Gpu keep disconnecting after launching into game
I had recently completed my egpu enclosure setup. I am using a mostly second hand setup less the laptop and trying to play on the laptop's display. There is the problem where once a game load past the menu and into the actual game, it will crash and and a nvidia popup will indicate that my gpu has disconnected. Disconnecting and connecting back the thunderbolt 3 cable will reconnect the gpu. Tried games like Control and GTA5 to no avail.
Any help rendered will be much appreciated.
@itsage Just tried 3dmark instead and saw for the first time the gpu spin its fan full force, it is able to run 1 full test. Afterward run Control for 5 minutes and it work. Then restart the laptop to see if i can replicate this result but now launching 3dmark will also crash the program. Used heaven benchmark and it also crash.
Now i want to pinpoint what is the problem: It is the gpu , the enclosure which might be the psu , or the laptop ( the thunderbolt 4 area is really hot after a while).
I just got this 970 less than 24 hrs ago so i might have a case against this seller that sold me this gpu
@itsage The enclosure came with the original Psu so yeah my gpu is most likely a lemon. You gain some and you lose some in the used market

@junwei_koh, You're welcome. It's rough in this current market to buy GPU. Hopefully you'll find good card soon.
