Hi guys, I'm new in the forum... Thanks for your help, I'm Spanish, so sorry for my bad English... 

I'll try to build my oun egpu enclosure, I've got the r43sg + amd rx590 + asus vivobook d509da... And the power supply and the enclosure are parts of an old pc (with 128 mb of ram) that I won't use any more, but worked fine.... Some years ago jajajajajaj a....

Well.... My doub is... How should I power up the unit and the graphic card? I saw some people using 1 dell da-2, other one, using 2 dell da-2 (with 8 pin conector), other people use 24 pin conector, and some others use a 24 pin conector + 4 pin cpu conexión... And for the card? There is an output in the r43sg, with an adapter I can connect both connections of the gpu, or maybe it would be better to connect the power supply directly to the gpu?

Thanks in advance for your help, I'll keep working on it (I can't go outside)... Now I'm cloning my HD to free the nvme slot... Let's see what happens...

@boris_munoz_medovits, A single Dell DA-2 power adapter should be able to handle the RX 590.

@itsage, thx for the answer... I was talking about the enclosure and the power supply before, they will be recicled from an old computer, but I didn't told you the problems I found... I modified the enclosure of the pc to match the size of the r43sg + the amd rx 590 8gb vram and 175w required... The power supply is 220 w.... So it should be enough, but when I tried to connect it, I saw the big conector, it fits nice but it's only a 20 pin conector not the 24 pin that would fill the r43sg input.... So, I searched in Google the difference between both connectors, and the only differences are 4 pins.... 1yelow for 12v, one red for 5v, one orange for 3.3v and one black for ground, so I found some of these cables in the near, and used my soldering skills, and now I think we have a 24 pin conector with the correct volts in each pin.... Should it be enough? Or should I use a 4 pin cpu conector too? For feat the gpu, it's OK to use an adapter, 8 pin (r43sg output) to 6 + 8 pin (input of the gpu) or maybe it would be better to use a 6 pin conector of the power supply? And the 8 pin from r43sg to the gpu.?..... I'm having some troubles trying to clone the nvme ssd into a 2.5" hard disk, too.... 

I won't desist! I'll be working on it.... 👍

@boris_munoz_medovits, I have the same setup with my Asrock Deskmini 310 (i3-8100) with r43sg + Vega 56 / GTX 1070. The ADT R43sg only needs 12volts supply, and you will need to provide another 6/8 pin power cable coming from the r43sg (From GPU power) going to your rx590 if you have connected the 24pin to it. The 24 pin connector is just to make sure your atx power supply is always "switched on".  Other posts here have suggested to use the paperclip trick to switched on the atx power supply, if you choose not to use the 24pin.

As for the power going to the rx590, you can directly connect the 6 or 8 pin coming from the power supply. If your atx power supply can always be switched on, you may use the 4 pin connector (12V -yellow, Gnd -black) and connect it to the 4pin connector in r43sg labeled CPU 4P. This will provide sufficient power for the r43sg board, but not for the entire GPU.

R43sg board does not need all the voltages coming from the 24pin (5v and 3.3v), only the 12 volts.

@john_paul_bejerano, thank you very much... There is a lot of important info in your words... Sooooo, the 4 pin cpu conector (2 yellow (12v) and 2 black (ground) ) is enough to feed the r43sg? ... Niiiice... Then, the 20 or 24 pin conector? Only we need the green cable? Power button? I don't understand this... I saw the clip trick, but I don't understand it, and there is another egpu adapter, ... Called, Ext gdc beast, or something like this. .... It comes with an adapter, it's 20 or 24 pins, but only 1 green pin is wired... This is the power button you where talking about? My power supply doesn't have a power switch... 

Now, my main problem, is cloning the nvme HD into a 2.5" sata 3 HD.... I tried clonezila, aomei, hdclone, etc... But no luck... I think there's is a problem with the size of the sectors... Or some think like this... One has 512 bytes sectors, and the other 4kb sectors.... 

Well... Thanks a lot... C u

.... And what about the gpu? Should I connect both conexions? 6 pin and 8 pin? Or only one is enough?... 

 

Thx in advance

@boris_munoz_medovits, Hi there, just to clarify some points, the paper clip trick is for switching on the ATX PSU since most PSU does not have any switch but instead, the motherboard provides the signal to the PSU using the green wire. So either way, if you have use the 24pin connector and plug it directly to the R43SG, if will still work and automatically detects the signal of PCIE, in my case, my psu is always switched on, so I just plug the 4 pin connector to the R43SG as I have explained in my previous response and directly provide 12 volts to my 2x8pin connector of Vega 56 card.

For the GPU, if your card requires 2x6pin or 8pin, you have to provide it, else it wont provide sufficient power.

@john_paul_bejerano, thx a lot, that's very usefull... Then my gpu has a 6 pin slot and a 8 pin slot because it needs both... I was thinking that it comes with 2 different slots because there are more choices of conexión,... I can use 1 conector of the psu and the other from the r43sg to fill both slots, or maybe both from the r43sg output... 

My psu has only a 20 pin conector (with green pin too).... And for the other 4 pins (red, yellow, orange and black) I made a "trick" with other psu cables... It would be better use 20 pins or 24? Or it doesn't matter? 

Now I have a bigger problem.... I can't change my nvme drive and use a 2.5 inches one... Because my sata cable is broken.... So I must wait a lot for a new one....

@john_paul_bejerano, now I repaired an old smartphone and I'll used it as a system monitor, so I'll put a little box for it in the external enclosure, and it will provide info about the ram, gpu, cpu, temperature.... It will be very coooool.... There's an amd's apk for this, and my cpu, igpu and egpu are from amd so I think this will be the best option... There are another apks like "remote system monitor" or "spacedesk" very interesting 😉

Just to tie this thread off for anyone else looking for solutions/answers.

 

I filled the 24pin slot on the R43SG from the the PSU.

I then filled both 6+8pin slots on my GPU straight from the PSU.

Everything is running well.

 

Thank you guys for the thread and help, much appreciated!
