I can't get my build working windows isn't heaven recognizing the card, the ventilator rotate at boot then stop. The problem is probably that the card require 2x8pins and 1x6pins, and the razer core x only have 2x6+2pins.

Should I get a Y adapter in order to fill the remaining 6pin? 



To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.

@benoit_morinio, Yes, get a PCIe Y splitter adapter and connect the third 6-pin power plug.
