OWC Helios FX 550W
Can save yourself ~$80 buying these components separately as follows:
@alexander_kim I cannot really comment regarding the Sonnet enclosure but my OWC Helios FX with RX 580 is working flawlessly to this day in macOS configuration. I have read that both the Sonnet and Helios FX enclosures are identical (or about) for the hardware side but are somewhat different regarding the firmware implementation.
Maybe some other members here can comment on this.
You bought new or returned? They offer returned at good discount, should i look in to it?
@alexander_kim I actually bought "Open Box" in new condition.
At what price you bought it? At ~$440? How was the condition?
@slhdsnet, does this looks like a real deal: https://www.ebay.com/itm/GIGABYTE-Gaming-Box-RX-580-8G-Graphic-Card-eGPU-GV-RX580IXEB-8GD/163545440169?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908105057%26meid%3D34e830c3af494a838387708ce39e7ecc%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D15%26sd%3D163545440169%26itm%3D163545440169&_trksid=p2481888.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3A0c37fa3c-3533-11e9-9f5f-74dbd18012c9%7Cparentrq%3A0be73cac1690ac3d6c535be8ffff3cf0%7Ciid%3A1
Or it's scam?
@alexander_kim The eBay ad does look legit but from the feedback comments, it appears this would be the very first item the seller actually sells on eBay. Given the item ships from Canada, shipping cost will likely be quite expensive. Thus, not sure this would turn out to be a bargain in the end.
Indeed, shipping is very costly ~$100-150 to KZ...
Ouch indeed !!! Cheers. 🙂
