I have been trying to get the AORUS GTX 1070 EGPU Gaming Box to work for almost a year now. It used to just as simple as it deciding to work, but with new knowledge I now know that my pc seems to not wanna load the driver sometimes. I also noticed that the thunderbolt cable that came with it was defective so I had to buy a new one.

Oh, and my question is: How do I get my computer to properly load the driver for my EGPU so it works more consistently.

I noticed with mine it only works properly if I have my laptop off, then plug in the eGPU, then turn the laptop on. Sometimes I even had to disable the built in MX150 to get it working properly as well.


Although I barely use this setup anymore as the Aorus gaming boxes seem to be so finicky that it's almost always a bad experience.

ok, and my next question is how often do thunderbolt 3 cables not work? And do they tend to not work sometimes?
