The PSU inside Gaming Box should be able to handle the RX 5700 Nano. I do not know if it's going to be plug-and-play.

It is definitely NOT plug-and-play. It costs around $400-450 USD.

I tried putting a Radeon Pro WX 5100 in the 2070 Aorus Gaming Box but nothing happens. The WX5100 is a pretty low power card (75W) and thus doesn't have any plugs power. It gets all its power from the PCIe slot. I haven't been brave enough to try shorting the pins, though.

Asus just released their own mini version of the RTX2070 which according to their own specs, it's  7.8x4.8x 1.5. Does anybody know if this would fit the AGB?

EDIT: seems like it's a bit larger than the Gigabyte RTX2070 mini which is ~6.70 (vs 7.8). What are the chances of still fitting it in?

Can confirm two cases for AORUS Gaming Box 1080:

1. Radeon RX 570 Sapphire Mini Pulse PCI-E 4096Mb (11266-34-20G)

Works out-of-the-box. Just plug-and-play.

2. Radeon RX 5700 PowerColor PCI-E 8192Mb (AXRX 5700 ITX 8GBD6-2DH)

Works, but with 12V trick (posted before in this thread) slightly modified (other cable method used).

@invoker,  Thank you for sharing this update. The cooler looks the same as RX Vega 56 Nano. Did you buy it in Japan?

@invoker,  Hi.

Which cable method did you use? Soldering from PCI-E to PCI-E slot/under-board or from the PSU cable 12V? Something else? Smile

Can you take a picture of your modification? Thanks!
