i just bought my akitio node 3 1 weeks ago and when i tried gaming with it , i can barely play for about 15-25 minutes then the akitio node would just turn off by itself

im using GTX 1080Ti MSI X11G vga

is it because akitio node psu doesnt support 1080 TI vga card ???

It shouldn't be the PSU but it could be. I think possibly overheating is your issue. Does it happen if you're not playing a game, i.e. if you're browsing the web? Also is it always the same game?

I also have the Node and the MSI GTX 1080Ti, but I replaced my PSU and fans (using the same kit as in this post:  https://egpu.io/forums/thunderbolt-enclosures/fan-replacement-for-akitio-node/#post-9821). But I did that before I put this card in, so I can't say that it would have worked before. I don't have any crashing and now it is silent.

Unplug the internal power supply, plug your new one - see if it works... if it does, then problem solved - just remove the internal 400W PSU, and install your new one - it is the same SFX format, should fit.

I had the same issue with the akitio node and a 1080ti strix oc, I read the forums and I bought the corsair sf600, cables and a new vent. The PSU it's the most important thing, you need the atx bridget in order to turn on the PSU, otherwise it won't work. You can also jump the PSU with a clip or a cable.

Yes, you need the bridge otherwise the PSU won't power on.

Any other PSU options?

I think that any SFU size psu will do the trick, I highly recommend the oSF600 from corsair 'cos it's silent the whole time.

The corsair one is really expensive here in Brazil. Would this fit?  https://www.amazon.com/Thermaltake-Toughpower-Warranty-Modular-PS-STP-0600FPCGUS-G/dp/B01KGCXMXS

Yup, that should work BUT you will need to source an additional PCIe 6+2 pin cable.  That PSU, and most others, only come with two PCIe 6+2 pin cables and you need 3; 6-pin to the Node board, 6-pin + 8-pin to the GPU.

You will also need a generic PSU bridge for it to power on.

Modular PSU cables aren't universal, so you would need to make sure the PCIe cable works with that PSU.  It would be worthwhile to call Thermaltake and get an actual part number for the cable you need.
