I bought a Akitio via eBay on November from the USA, however how I live in Brazil, it only arrived last week, so, I am only trying it now.

I bought a GTX 1050 TI and a 120 w, 12v power supply for it. 

When I turn the Akitio on, it turn the green led light on, so the circuit is oK.
When I plug the thunderbolt cable on it, Akitio turn the blue led light on, so, I think its ok too. 

But the VGA card, the Akitio fan and Akitio front led does not turn on. 

Does anybody knows what can be happening? 

Thanks.

Please provide more information on the specific GTX 1050 Ti you have and how it's powered.

Thanks for the feedback.

It´s a EVGA GTX 1050 TI Superclocked that does not require a extra 6pin power.

To power up the akitio, i am using a 120 w power supply 12v 10A.
