Sure! I will definitely try and get something up here to show everything I've done. My luck has run out, as I had a plan to use the eGPU to bring with me for work travel. However, I wanted to also use it with my newly built asRock x570 ITX/TB3 build to push to virtual machines as a dedicated card, but I'm having troubles with getting that working (getting error code 12). 

**UPDATE** I got it working, had to dig through the forum weeds and find out what everyone was experiencing to fully understand what was going on. It requires updating Windows 10 to the current developer version for everything to be detected properly (addressing). I will have pictures up soon with a write up!

I originally purchased the Aorus Gaming Box with the intention of using it as a eGPU for VM's off my main machine (3900x/ASRock x570 ITX-TB3), however, got drawn into thinking of using it on travel with my 2n1 (HP Spectre Folio). I know it's not the best host in terms of raw power, but it gets the job done. I did tests with the native 2070 and figured that would be better suited for my other machine, so I pulled that and purchased the Power Color 5600XT ITX. 

In testing with this 2n1:

The 2070 originally had no issues, worked right out the gate (too much power to be sitting behind a eGPU enclosure).

Power Color 5600XT had numerous issues and continued to show code error 43 (attempted port dance, different drivers, cold/warm booting). Nothing would work until I stumbled on to this post, specifically @007craft, I knew that was the way I wanted to do the mod. I'm leaving room to maybe sell this thing one day and I did not want to solder or harm anything in the process.

@kaoklimmrukk, @itsage, I'm looking at a RX 5600 XT ITX for my Gaming Box.

Can anyone suggest the best link to the "12v trick"? Looking for the best step by step.

Thanks!

 

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