Guys I read few posts about Vega64 and power and mantiz PSU.

I want ask I want buy this week standart Vega64 into mantiz. Will be all working ok on Win?

I using mantiz primary on playing so I need know that will be all okay 🙂 Because me little fear informations here about freezing, errors etc.

I suppose it is too easy on macOS since drivers are beta. Also Vega64 seems to consume too much power (power spikes) even for Venus PSU which is quite powerful. I don't know if AMD will found a solution/workaround for this. I would suggest to get a Vega56 but at least for now it is even difficult to find.

Hi, now I have in my Venus Fury X. But this week start selling in shops Vega64 so I want change it. Vega56 still isn't in my country.

So guys? Will it works with V64? 🙂

Mantiz wrote, that create more details from benchmarks etc. But into this time zero news. So I start little fear 😀

LAPTOP = HP Spectre x360 13 Dark Ash Silver (i7-8565U, 16GB DDR4, 512GB SSD)
EGPU = Mantiz Venus MZ-02 Space Grey + PSU Corsair SF600 600W 80 Plus Gold
GPU = PowerColor AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB HBM2
DISPLAY = Samsung C27FG73 | ROUTER = NETGEAR Nighthawk X4S R7800
KEYBOARD = Logitech G810 Orion Spectrum | MOUSE = Logitech G305 Recoil
CHAIR = DXRacer Racing OH/RV001/N
PHONE = OnePlus 6T MidnightBlack (8GB LPDDR4X, 256GB UFS2.1)

Vega 64 needs to have at least 650W or more PSU. ( Due to the peak current jump to 650W for some M Sec ). To change a larger PSU is needed.

I'm waiting for RX Vega 56 which is the more appropriate GPU for use with eGPU enclosure. Availability of these cards at launch has been awful though. Did you get an RX Vega 56 where you're at @Mymantiz_John?

Sorry but I am already in the process to sell the Vega64. So I back to my RX 480........stable and enough for now.

Thanks

Yes, I had that, no high peak current issue so far.

Does anyone know what power supply I can use to replace the 550w it comes with? I have a Vega 64 and although I cant seem to get past the code 12 issue Id like to make sure I have enough power for it once I have it sorted.

Also, are these code 12 workarounds going to be long term or will these disappear with firmware upgrades/software upgrades in the future? (I have a 2017 15" macbook w/radeon 560). When I embarked on this journey I was really looking for a smooth solution that gave me mobility and gaming abilities... So far I have spent $5000+ and a bunch of headaches 🙂

I'm not sure we'll have plug/play solutions for eGPU on Windows on MBP, but I have the same Macbook Pro and so far I had zero headache. All I had to do to solve error 12 was installing refind and booting on the script a single time, now it works flawlessly 100% of the time I boot on Windows. See if my post can help you: https://egpu.io/forums/builds/2017-macbook-pro-15-evga-ftw3-gtx1080ti32gbps-tb3-mantiz-venus-win10macos-rycco/

Just ordered a Mantis Venus in Space Gray, can't wait to get it. Is the case fan replaceable? I've heard it can get pretty loud.

Power supply will not be the code 12 issue. And the code 12 was caused by the Mac BOOTCAMP. it is not related with the Mantiz Update. But it will be changed by the Mac Bootcamp structure update.

Yes it can be replaced, it is a bit tricky. On eGPU.it we sell it also with Noctua option. Anyway there is another fan pin on Venus which run slower and more silent.

Indeed I'm searching for Vega56 but there is no one in Italy yet

Do people think a 160W PSU would be good enough to run a 1050Ti on the Venus? With PD supplying an XPS 13 at a max of 60W.

@Richard Unless you already have a spare 160W PSU, I'd recommend getting a beefier one to make sure it provides sufficient power to the PCIe slot and GPU.

Hi,

 

I just received the Mantis venus yesterday and finally finished setting up 1080ti+MBP combination last night in bootcamp. Thanks for the great product. 

 

I currently have two problems or questions that raised my concerns:

 

1. It seems that even the power of the enclosure is on, if I unplug the TB3 cable, the enclosure will shut down and restart. I am wondering if it's normal and what is the suggested step of switching it on? Connect the cable first and turn on the power or the other way?

 

2. I connected the mouse and keyboard on the USB port at the back of the enclosure. When GPU heat it up, it seems that the keyboard connection is not stable. I am not sure whether is due to the temperature issue or something else?

 

Thanks again,

LZ

After reading this topic(all of it), i have bought Mantiz, and i am so exciting to have it. (I have used Akitio but having trouble with Power, just shut down>>2017 macbook 15' and aorus 1080ti)

Anyway, there is question that i like to ask. 

With new FW that mantiz will provide, will not be issues of slowing down or not getting full speed of graphic card etc. 

However i just wonder how do people manage the disk, i am thinking to buy extra SSD just for Mantiz to get more spcae on Bootcamp. Should I install Bootcamp in extra SSD or use as space? 

If I will use it to get more space, is it possible to play games without any troubles? (I read, SSD with SATA speed is around 300-350) 

if there are good answers or test results, i will be very happy to know 🙂

Just pulled the trigger on a Venus yesterday. For me, a lot is riding on this H2D issue getting resolved with the new firmware. John, any news on that? Still ETA of sometime this coming week?

Also, quick question guys: I am only planning to run my 1080ti in Windows, but let's say I wanted to run in MacOS some day. I know High Sierra beta makes Radeon GPUs basically plug and play, but how about NVIDIA GPUs? And what is the current process for enabling an NVIDIA GPU in MacOS?

If you check my implementation guide, I've set it up with an external SSD, in its own enclosure using a USB-C port on the right. Separate from the Mantiz Venus. Been rock solid for 2 months now! 

One of these days I'll update the guide with latest info, (Creator's update is not needed, stick with anniversary) and a successful Clover implementation as well.

Although hopefully with your 2017 MBP DSDT override is not needed. (Although I think it's the best solution, just a big initial setup hurdle)

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00H3SWJ24/ref=ox_sc_act_title_6?smid=A28VADU4WUGJ11&psc=1 would this fan replace the stock one on mantiz?

Yes it can. Just be aware of three things

1. It is taller by 10mm and it gets closer to the back of the card. I haven't heard of anyone having problems but if you have a card with a fairly large backplate it might not work. 

2. Since it is taller you will need longer screws. I believe the thread size is M3 but I might be mistaken. 

3. The CFM rating is lower than the stock fan (~42), but it should be fine especially if you use heat sinks like I did here:  https://egpu.io/forums/thunderbolt-enclosures/mantis-venus/paged/20/#post-14087

I guess everyone is waiting for the firmware 🙁 Would that be a certification problem? If so you can just call it beta testing and make it available for us thru pm @Mymantiz_John

Has anyone who pre-ordered before last week's new stock gotten any notification or received their Venus yet? Seems like they haven't even been shipped yet.

So it is not advised to use a Vega 64 with the PSU that comes with the Venus? What if you undervolt the Vega 64? Would it still spike above the maximum capacity of the PSU?

according to the high peak current reach to 650W, we don't suggest to use Vega 64. Actually None of eGPU can drive Vega 64 for the time being unless, we increase to 750W PSU for that. ( Cost )

Yes, I realize this, but this occurs when the Vega 64 is on stock settings and on load, no? What if it would be undervolted, would it still reach 650W?

Can someone enlighten me on this subject? I'm currently in doubt whether I should go for a 56 or 64.
