Please let me know if somebody can help me?

 
I have a Sonnet eGFX  Breakaway Box  650 (TB3) + ADM Radeon  5700 XT  8GB from GIGABYTE, with the exactly path number of Sonnets TechSpecs manual, but the  iMac  is shutting down when I do “heavy" renders.
 
My computer is a  iMac  27” i5 2017 3.8GHz and I just upgraded to CATALINA 10.15.7 but the problem continue.
 
Follows attach the problems report error to you help me to solve this Shutting Down problem.

I really appreciated if you help me to solve this problem.

TLDR: When maxing out graphics, my Sonnet eGFX  Breakaway Box  650 + AMD RADEON  5700 XT   crashes completely and shuts down my  iMAC  27" 2017 3.8GHz and I don’t know why.

@pedro_ferrarini, What's the specific model of Gigabyte RX 5700 XT? Does it have a vBIOS switch?

@pedro_ferrarini, Try a different position for the vBIOS switch to see if your GPU runs more stable. It's located on top of the card near the mounting bracket (top left in this photo).
