@jisongkun, check out this post by @007craft:  https://egpu.io/forums/psu-cables/power-up-rx-580-mini-itx-with-aorus-gaming-box/paged/7/#post-58175

You can try the wiring trick before soldering on the backside to confirm it will work for you.

@invoker, hey! I know it's been ages but I'm just wondering if you'd share your benchmarks on MacOS with me for the 5700 ITX (Heaven and maybe Basemark?). Thanks!

@arzen, haven't got time to do it yet, but I did order a custom made cable that split a signal from +12V on the ATX connector. I will report back to you possibly next week.

I'm excited to hear your story. If you have good results vs the rx580, I think I'll order a 5700 ITX myself. Smile

I was able to successfully install and make work Sapphire Radeon RX 570 ITX.

All I had to do, thanks to @dope, is put a wire between PRSNT #2 of 16x (side B, pin 82) and PRSNT #2 of 8x (side B, pin 48). I don't know why it works, but it does, any insight why is it needed @dope?

At first I tried putting a wire into the slot itself to test it (green wire).

Then I soldered it on the bottom side of the pcb. Connected these two pins with a wire.

Now it works on mac mini 2018 with Mojave and Windows 10.

@sergey_lerg, I know its been ages but I was wondering how you determined which pins to solder to? Thanks!
 
I think @dope and your solution to simply jump the 16x pin was brilliant.

@arzen, I didn't, it was @dope who found out about connecting the pins. I just followed his instructions.

@sergey_lerg, how'd you figure out which ones to solder together? 🤔

@arzen, you mean where to find the pins on the board? It's documented for the PCIE slot. I just googled the pinout and counted the pins on the board.
For example you can find the pinout here https://pinouts.ru/Slots/pci_express_pinout.shtml
