boeonoz posted a topic in Apple eGPU discussionHello, Just finished my eGPU setup but there is a lot of problem prevent it operating normally. Before I get Rx480 I try with ATI HD 5850 everything is easy, no modification at all windows 10 auto find driver and run stable. That's is why I go for Rx480.... here nightmare begin My Current system is Mac mini 2012 -> Connect Monitor B Highpoint RocketStor 6361A XFX Rx480 GTR Black Edition -> Connect Monitor A Let's start with mac side. I setup clean install macOS sierra with Goalque's Auto eGPU, everything fine. Reboot. During boot screen my screen flick (Monitor A eGPU) then eGPU fan whirl up and system freeze. Next try, I unplug Monitor A that connect with eGPU. macOS boot normally show Intel HD 4000 and R9 XXX then plug monitor A. Everything works! But Unigine benchmark seem to crash every time but LuxMark work fine. Problem is next restart it freeze again, I have to un-plug HDMI and re-plug every time it boot. This is not optimal, is there a solution? Windows 10 side is a Horror When I use HD 5850 there is nothing to do at all, works perfectly except HD4000. Now with Rx480 First - I install Crimson 16.10 .... Error 43 = Reinstall driver / Windows not fix this (FAIL) Second - Reinstall Windows BOOTCAMP as UEFI = Black screen / HD4000 not working at all (both screen unusable/no fix possible) (FAIL) Third - I change to Crimson 10.7.1 non WHQL .... Intel HD 4000 Works / Rx480 Error 12 With Error 12, I use DSDT Override - Kaboom! HD4000 Stop working but Rx480 Manage to boot with AMD Xconnect, BUT after few second monitor down system freeze and reboot a short while. Is anyone know what I went wrong? Thank you in advance. ps, I haven't try Setup 1.30 since I don't have Paypal account
Ok, so for the past few weeks adter a lot of trial, error and studying up on sites like this, I've been running my Akitio thunder2 chassis with a Nvidia Geoforce GTX 750ti sc in it WITH THE INCLUDED 60WATT AC ADAPTER. Everything was working ok as long as I opened precisionx 16 and ran the card at about 92% power but i would only get about 30-40 fps, when i run it at 100% or crank up the mhz a little bit i get well over 60fps but the card eventually crashes and I get a kernal error. Anyways...to get to the point, I was doing this all on my 2015 retina macbook pro i5, and a few days ago I sold it and used the money to buy a 2011 quadcore mac mini i7 with 16gb of ram (suprisingly much faster and I only paid $600 while I sold the macbook for $950) except for the switch from thunderbolt 2 (on the macbook pro) to thunderbolt 1 (on the mac mini) but I haven't noticed a difference with any kind of bottlenecking or anything yet. Probably because it's only a 2gb gpu. Ok, so when i was out buying the monitor (I went with an acer 23.8 inch) I also bought an asus "pa-1121-28" 125 watt power supply. When i plug this thing in and boot up with my same method it gives me a blue screen with "systerm_service_exception nvlddmkm.sys" before anyone says there's a fix for that, trust me, I already did the driver fix and it didn't work haha, also..like I said, when I plug the 60 watt power supply in, everything works fine. If there was just some way to boot up windows with the 60 watt power supply and then without windows noticing, swap out the 125 watt one everything would probably work fine. I just have no idea what to do or what's going on...why doesn't windows like this psu!? It has a barrel plug just like the included power supply. Any help would be appreciated.By the way, the fan on the gpu spins either much faster or (when it seems to be syncing with the computer) a little bit faster right off of the bat.thanks guys!,BillyEdit: I'm running windows 8.1 pro
