Hi guys!

Im totally new here on egpu.io forums, but have read a lot of info coming from this site. I bow my head to all you boys and girls just doing magic in here 🙂

my question is simple; have any one used the Nitro+ Radeon™ RX Vega 64 med 8GB HBM2 in the Akitio Node pro enclosure?

I have done some of the homework and most likely the card is to power hungry and a bit to big in width, taking at least 2.5 slots. If not i'll go for the Razer Core X solution.

Thanks in advance 🙂

@edit-or-die Welcome aboard! The 500W PSU inside the AKiTiO Node Pro will not be able to handle the RX Vega 64. You can either go with the Razer Core X or swap the SFX power supply of the Node Pro for 650W+ one.

I swapped in a 600w FSP Dagger SFX PSU into my Node running a Sapphire Vega 64 reference card. Seeming that it used to power my whole system with 1080ti, it's plenty for the Vega.
