blackmagic eGPU

PostSat Jan 09, 2021 3:51 pm

Hi, just bought a new Apple Blackmagic egpo and as soon as i connect it to my iMac 2019, after two minutes the vent start taking of like a airplane really. And they won't stop anymore. I have read that if you connect after you started your iMac the problem isn't there, but does anyone know if there is a solution for this matter, otherwise I have to send the blackmagic back, it is weird. Anyone has a solution?

Is this the first one with the 580 or the so-called Pro? The 580 version should be very silent and yours might have a bad fan.
if it's the Pro, send it back if you still can. It's overpriced and can't be upgraded.
I use an eGFX Breakaway Box by Sonnet and it's very silent, reliable and upgradeable.
Resolve Studio 16.2.8 and Fusion Studio under MacOS Mojave 10.14.6
iMac 2017 Radeon Pro 580 8 GB VRAM and 32 GB RAM
2018 Mac mini 16 GB RAM plus eGFX Breakway Radeon RX 580
(currently my test system for DR 17 beta under Catalina 10.15.7)
