hello all, recently I got a used-gigabyte aorus gamingbox 1080ti enclousure. The device has been mod by the owner(he removed the orginal graphic card and use a pcie link to support the largest card.) I have 2 graphic card and both were works fine. one is sapphire rx580-4g oc   another is amd rx6800. and also I have  another thunderbolt enclosure the mantiz vens. when i plug in rx580 to the aorus.and rx6800 on mantiz. they both connect to my nuc11-tigerlake through the tb3 port.It works fine(30%) ,or  gets stuck and the screen will black and can not nothing but reboot by holding the nuc power( about40% ). another situation is the screen will get black and amd driver will display the timing out message and after wattman reset ,the system will still work.(30% ). So I think maybe the enclosure have some issue. or just the system is not compatible? If I use only mantiz with my rx580 , it works fine . if i use mantiz with rx6800, it works fine too, if i use aorus with rx580, it will get stuck. if i use both .the same stuck . So after what i discribe. anyone can tell how can i solve the issue? Is there any possible that the aorus's power unit have issue? should i buy a new flex power supply? or this just the compatible issue? anyone can give me some advice? thanks you very much!

ps: If the system with both enclosure plug run after a while and with no stuck, then it will never stuck .If i use rx6800 to mining crypto and rx580 gaming. it works fine. but ,I can not reboot .because if i reboot .mybe next time  it will stuck. so is this can tell that the psu of the aorus is fine ?

@alex_zhan, From the symptoms you described, it's unlikely to be a power supply issue. Have you tried hot-plug the Gaming Box to the NUC without any GPU installed? You'd want to established the Thunderbolt 3 connection between your NUC and Gaming Box is functional. Next step is to test with adding the GPU through hot-plug. Booting with multiple eGPUs can cause hang due to firmware compatibility. Therefore it's best to test with each configuration through hot-plug to confirm. Also helpful to make changes in the BIOS.

@itsage

thank you for your reply itsage, now i am 100% sure that the issue is about the gigabyte gamong box. cause i swith the rx580 to mantiz to link my nuc , they just works fine. and if i link the nuc with the arous gamingbox. then maybe it will get stuck . Is this just the compltible issue ? this device is about 85usd. is it worth to spend more time to figure it out? It is very upset that 20-30times reboot a day. need your advice. thanks

@alex_zhan, The Gaming Box PSU and mainboard don't always work with different graphics card. You may need to supplied 12V to PCIe slot pin 1 [link].

@itsage, Thank you. After I try link my monitor through my nuc hdmi port(just like the intenal mode as a laptop). The both egpu graphic cards work as a extenal mode  and I have try many times reboot. It seems the system will no longer get stuck anymore. Well, this can be a sloution for me .Maybe the gaming fps will drop a little, but i am ok with it. Just let everybody know what happened. 

 

conclusion:

link gamingbox (rx580 4g) with monitor   : get stuck

link mantiz(rx580 4g) with monitor: not get stuck

link mantiz(rx6800 16g )with monitor: not get stuck

link nuc with monitor and one or two egpu as external : not get stuck yet.
