Post-repasting issue Aorus gaming box 1080
Longtime lurker but first time poster!
I have an issue with my egpu, an Aorus Gaming Box 1080. After repasting it (with Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut) whenever I plug it on a laptop for the first time, the gpu fan spins for 2 seconds then stops. After that, I need to unplug the power cable before making the fan spin again.
I thought maybe a short was causing the issue due to an error with my repasting method but I've even ran the egpu with no cooler on and cleaned up and I was experiencing the same issue.
I've also tried to connect the enclosure without a gpu inserted and the USB hub was working properly.
I'm starting to suspect that either now I have a PSU issue or a dead card on my hands.
Do you have an idea about what is going on and how I could fix the issue?
Thanks a lot!
Have you try to remove the heatpipes again and be sure that the screw are correc and check the fan wire t? Also try to plug it again , sometimes the box go crazy and doesnt turn on. I think that all should work correctly.
Yeah , I did all that already.
I also did a test where I've put my GPU in a desktop computer and I confirm that the GPU is dead sadly. Also the enclosure doesn't work with any cards I've put in it.
So I guess an electrical issue killed both components sadly.
I think it's a good enough excuse to look to upgrade to a Core X + a 3060 or 3070 when they'll be available !
