Thanks mate. Did you test your 5600XT using that method?

Yes, it works plug and play on Mac OS Catalina without any problems. So now, I am looking for a right way to install needed drivers and patches on Windows 10 (v. 1909). The card is recoignized on Windows, but not working.

I would LOVE to find a solution to make the Auros Gaming Box 1070 I have work on the Mac side again, I have never been able to locate the Vega 56 Nano that had reported success. If this card works, it would provide an alternative to swap it out, please keep us posted with how it works for you.

@jisongkun, Can I ask where you got the special power connector? Besides, I wonder if you soldered it to the pin on PCIE slot; if not, is it firmly attached when the card is inserted? I'm waiting for a RX6000 ITX card in the upcoming months, but it is highly likely that the similar trick would be needed.

For better imagination, this is some solution. I use one solid wire from SFTP LAN cable.

pin1 12V wire

I just just got a Zotac Gaming GeForce Rtx 3070 Twin Edge OC yesterday and was curious if my 2016 Gigabyte Aorus 1070 Gaming Box egpu enclosure would work with it...

Well I had to do some research(this forum helped a lot!), a little modifications, a little cutting, a little soldering, a little updating, but had fun with it!

 

DSC-0310

DSC-0312

ub

Very brief instructions of what i did:

- Used GPU VGA PCIe 8 Pin Female to Dual 2x 8 Pin (6 + 2) Male PCIE Express Power Adapter to convert the single 8 pin from PSU to the 2 8 Pin needed to power up this specific card.

- Needed to manually power the 12 volt rail also to help power the card.

- lengthened PSU wires and soldered underneath the board to help accommodate clearance issue with the gpu.

Problem/Solution I had to deal with:

Problem:

- Once top portion has been done, I was able to power everything up but this graphics card kept being shown as a "Microsoft displaybasic display adapter" with code(31) shown in driver description:

Solution:

- Simply download GeForce Experience from nvidia site, open the app and update drivers through there!

Fin

I will probably keep the enclosure open for now.

 

Extras:

Software added:

-RGB Fusion 2.0 (To manage the egpu lighting)

-Msi Afterburner (To manage the GPU, such as the clock, voltage, fan speed)

@invoker, Hi

I’m facing the same problem. Could you take a photo where to link the cable please.

Thank you!

hej, I've got problems with my Gaming Box RX580. I think that the GPU might be broken. Everytime I try to connect with it, I get a BSoD. Unfortunately germany's Gigabyte doesn't help me with this as I don't have a invoice, because I bought this from someone else. Ran perfectly fine for nearly a year and then suddenly: dead. Rechecked it on a Mac, same thing.

Now: Which ITX card, that is in stock, can I get to check, if the board itself has a problem or "only" the GPU. Box itself works as a bulky and expensive power brick with USB-hub features (and deactivated GPU). This thread relates to the nvidia Gaming Boxes, but everything noted here should work for the RX580-one as well?

 

Thank you for your help

hi, I have the same 1070 box and same sapphire rx 570 itx. I have a few questions as I have been trying to get them to work together and I understand their incompatible without mods...

1. Do you have to connect the ATX +12V to Pin #1 for this card like with other similar ones? I have read this is how to get the box to recognize the gpu is inside.

2. I had tried connecting pins #48 and #82 but it did not work. Checking a Pinout it says that #81 is PRSNT2 not 82 so is this a typo or am I connecting PRSNT #2 of the x8 to ground of x16? I have tried 48-82 49-82 48-81 and 49-81. I have not tried connecting atx +12 to pin 1 AND applied this method hence reason for my first question.

3. is there any potential steps or procedure I may have missed to enable this card with the box?

on a side note I have purchased the box second hand. I had the guy test it with the 1070 it came with on his XPS and it was working perfectly (he ran a stress test with 3D mark 3x for me and it all passed with flying colours) the Sapphire 570 itx is second hand too but same thing had the guy test it with a 3x 3dmark so I know both are operational. 

I have both a tb3 mac and a tb3 XPs both work with my razer core x + Vega 64. The 570 works with both in my razer core as well.

The Gaming Box when I plug it into the mac or pc Will start the psu fans and then nothing (no lights it connects for a half second while powering on then disconnects from device manager.
