Asus XG Station Pro - Fan Issue
I am quite new to the whole eGPU thing and need some help with my Asus XG Station Pro under Mac OS X: in idle mode the case fan constantly starts and stops again.
Here is my setup:
All in all I am very happy with the whole setup an the noise level, but this idle behavior of the case is driving my crazy....
Many thanks in advance for your help!
@bart_simpson, Do you have another graphics card to test? It's possible the RX 5700 XT you have exhausts hot air right to the temp sensor on the ASUS XG Station Pro main board. When the sensor registers 55+ Celsius degrees it will run the fans. If you're within return/exchange period I'd recommend switching for the ASUS STRIX RX 5700 XT which has FanConnect feature. You can then connect the case fans to the GPU directly.

Unfortunately, no. However thank you very much for that great hint! I wonder where this sensor is located. Maybe there is a way to shield it somehow...
Returning the GPU would otherwise be the last resort...
Not sure if this may help?
