@nando4, Okey thanks for this link. You mentioned a 20V PD adaptor, where can I find it? how will I make this all arrangement.
Can you please help me with that?
Please help me choose between what you suggested to me or this one I sent the link of(Razer_Core Chipset)? I mean I don't know will that combination even work or not, So looking forward to your expert opinion
You can see commentary about that Razer board at https://egpu.io/forums/deals/worldwide-aliexpress-us70-razer-core-x-chroma-mainboard-add-atx-psu-tb3-cable-for-lowest-cost-100w-pd-tb3-egpu/
I'd suggest go for my the previous posted solution using the JEYI Thunderdock 7 Mini for a cleaner build with more flexibility and at a lower cost.
Also can you please suggest me an egpu that is cheap and works fine in my Macbook pro 2012 13inch.....
Can you explain this 20V RD, plus there is another Board Razer Core V2 board,
Can you let me know will this board be better, I mean will it be safer to get that or the combination of Jeyi thunderdock, R53sg, Apple TB3-TB2 adapter, and a 20V PD will be okey too?
Does anyone have the JEYI Thunderdock Mini actually and if yes could you check whether it's possible to just slap https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32861465503.html in there? I guess it'd require removing the cover, obviously. I would like to put a small PCIe card there, not a GPU but still this seems like the best place to ask I want to add a QXG-5G2T-111C and hopefully get someone to design a little case for it, even. Would be a wonder of a Thunderbolt dock this way!

@od42 , if the eGPU isn't detected on another notebook then it points to faulty hardware. Then seek a replacement/refund for it.
Unfortunately I dont have another thunderbolt laptop, eGPU enclosure, or GPU around to pin point what is faulty, but Ill try asking around. I will also try putting the GPU in a desktop next week once I get my hands on one (current covid restrictions dont allow us to travel outside city regions around here till next monday...) to see if the GPU is still working.
Edit: Just to make sure I didnt word my issue incorrectly, I have so far tested it only on one laptop which has both Windows and Linux installed. The eGPU used to work fine on both OSes and then suddenly stopped working on both.
@itsage, so here is what I get, as there are two thunderbolt 4 ports. So one will be used with TB3-TB2 apple adapter.. Other will be used to power the adapter.. Can I use normal phone charger for that. As I have one with 18W power delivery. Correct me if I am wrong..
Also if you can make a step by step guide. Or if at least write the steps here one by one..
#i am not a techy person... Looking forward to your guidance.
Also tell me are they thunderbolt 4 ports or thunderbolt 3. This product has confusion.
Looking forward to your response
@abdullah_khan, Are you talking about using the JEYI Thunderdock 7 Mini to host the R43SG M.2 adapter for eGPU and connecting your 2017 MacBook Air through the Apple Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt adapter? @nando4 has recommended a more economical solution in using Thunderbolt 2 enclosure.
