so i noticed something about the internal psu of the xbox one s, it has a standard 6-pin pcie connector.
Has anyone tried using it for egpu mods?
it's only 30€ and if it works it would be plug and play extra psu power.

Should work fine with a G-Unique unit. Won't work with HDPlex/KMPKT as it's outside of the operational range of these units (16-24V)

i haven't really thought about that, what i was thinking was to use it to only power a gpu thru the 6 pin connector

Take care when using that power supply, it's not the same kind of 6-pin connector for GPUs.



The notches are only in one corner instead of two corners of GPU connectors, which will keep it from being inserted completely. You'll have to de-pin and replace the 6-pin with a proper GPU one.

It might also be the extra-small micro-fit connector, but that's hard to get a sense of scale without having one actually in my hands.
