AORUS Gaming Box: What GPUs do work, and which ones do not?
So, being a Mac user, I'm forced to find a friend with a Windows laptop so that I can upgrade the H2D firmware which is extremely underwhelming stock on the AGB. I took my setup to a friend who has a compatible machine, and the process requires you to downgrade the thunderbolt firmware, after which my AGB was not recognized by either my Macbook or my friend's Dell XPS. Now, my AGB is just a brick sitting on my table.
I'm honestly getting sick of the AGB as it's extremely wonky to get running and very peculiar about support and drivers. In hindsight, buying something like this only to have to jump through hoops like gutting the enclosure and soldering the PCB.
Gigabyte supplies macOS drivers for some things but not for others.
I'm just very down about this whole thing right now. Does anyone have any tips? 🙂
I've successfully put an rtx 2070 gigabyte mini itx in an aorus gaming box 1070, but i had to short the pins 82 and 48 of the pcie slot as explained by sergei and dope in this thread. when looking at the pcie slot it seems it's an 8x because there's no metalic contacts beyond the number 48 pin, luckily it makes it simpler to do the short circuit. tested with an hades canyon nuc.
just update with the gaming box (RX580), I have been used with my mac mini 2012 before. Now I turn to use with my window laptop Asus zenbook S i7 16G 512 m2 with two thunderbolts 3 port. Although I have installed all the software and driver, I can work on it. But I have some issue with the gaming box:
1. AORUS ENGINE application cannot be open even I try maybe time (uninstall and reinstall again, the window OS also)
2. RGB Fusion cannot use.
3. gaming box (RX580) cannot be powerful enough to charge my laptop from the thundersolt cable, I need to plug in the type -c power supply for use.
It is too small as i found out, but just for the technical components, would it work to use them in a selfmade box with a different card than the gtx 60/70/80 ? I am thinking of driver issues. I would have an additional PSU, this isnt a problem, only the extra cables that hang around.
