Title: Mac pro late 2013 (nMP) egpu nvidia setup, configuration and installation
Post by: satolas on October 11, 2016, 01:46:52 PM
Hello everyone :-)

So, I have a nice setup ready for rendering, gaming and more. I wanted to ask some support for the installation of the egpu.
I assume that netkas and rominator are the kings of the topic :-)
So any help could be very usefull, since I tried a bench of things but nothing is working for me. :-/

The problem :
All connections are perfectely done I think, drivers are installed with success, the graphic card is shown in the control panel.
But get an error code 12. wich is very known for nmp because of the internal FirePros that fight to keep the priority ^^

So the egpu config :
- AKiTiO Thunder2 PCIe Box
- ASUS GeForce GTX 1070 ROG Strix 8GB
- Power supply Be quiet system power 8 , 400W

- Connections : I use the method of the double molex power cable to power the Akitio box.
And a TB2 cable from Akitio Tb to the bottom port of nmp (bus 0)

The config :
Windows 10 pro (bootcamp) GUID partition (EFI)
nMP, Mac pro (cylinder) late 2013
3.5GHz 6-core (E5 1650 v2)
64 Gb ram , 1866MHz DDR3 ECC
Dual FirePro D 700

Thanks a lot for all the things that are done here for external gpu for mac pros,
I respect the work you have done and hope you'll find a good way to help people by respecting you work either.

Regards,
satolas

Only Rominator knows this but he won't share the secret.
