The coil whine is somewhat annoying enough for to consider getting my money back. As of now it's 50-50 for return it or not.

Do you guys think this is on all Gaming Boxes/on the entire production due to Design, or just some exceptions?

 

Anyone in here without coil whine?

Hello,

Here is my experience after a couple of days using it. [2 weeks]. And currently it's very positive from my point of view.

I had a couple of issues, like not having it being started correctly on pc boot or when pluging it in. But after having updated the Nuc Skull Canyon Bios and Firmware Controller to Last version the Hot Pluging-in do work 100 percent of the time !!! So the Nuc was guilty not the box.

About Coil whine --> Yes i do have the problem too and yes this is anoying but i solved it. I bought a "foot switch plug". So once my pc is off i just cut the electricity by pushing the foot switch with my foot. --> Silent.

The foot switch is a really nice addition as i don't have to plug and unplug anymore. I just press that foot switch.

 

My only issue wich i didn't had before updating Nvidia drivers to 385.28 --> When i shutdown my pc now instead of shuting down the Gaming box stay alive and fans starts to spin faster ...  I have contacted Aorus.

 

Otherwise i play Paragon in Epic mode a 60 Fps 1920p and HellBlade a 45 Fps VeryHightDetail in 1920 p too.

 

And as i bought it to do 3D on the go with 3DSmax i can say that it's perfect for that !

 

From my point of view on this really young tech [ok not that young but market is just starting to open widely this tech] i'm very surprise by the small amount of negative stuff to deal with. So i will keep it.

It's a nice box! Really wish they'd fix the H2D issue with an update. That's the only thing holding me from buying one. Although Gigabyte already said that they are working on a fix, I'd rather wait before buying.

Hope the update is out soon.

Hi everyone,

I just wanted to drop in and update regarding the H2D Firmware Update. We are on track for a 1-2 week release and it does look on the earlier side. 

Thank you for all the feedback, support, and comments in regards to our AORUS Gaming Box. We hope to support everyone just as equally as they have supported us.

Great to hear!  I hope that you guys also address some of the USB issues.

Curious if anyone has tried this with the Oculus Rift. Does using the USB ports for the sensors/headset cause issues while playing games? What about Ethernet?

Um...I'm a bit confused. I posted this question (literally word-for-word) from my iPhone yesterday and instead of appearing as a comment by me, it got posted as an edit to Lucas's post? Strangeness with the forum, or did a moderator do this? 🙂

Has anyone used this with an external hard drive? To install and play games from the external hard drive?

I have a mac, and the memory is limited to 256 GB. And games nowadays are taking around 50-90 GB per install!! So it would make sense to be able to install and play from an external drive.

@sacthegreat I have been using my 2016 15" MBP with this AORUS Gaming Box and an USB SSD drive. The Bootcamp installation is on the internal drive but Steam games directory is set for the external drive.
