Razer Core V1 Confusion

    Hello fellow gamers,
    I have battled with this issue for awhile now, and turn to you guys for help and feedback on my issue:

    I have a Razer Core V1 connected to my 2017 Blade Stealth with external peripherals. My Core tends to have a habit to disconnect, reboot, and maybe reconnect to my laptop and my peripherals. I thought this was a software issue, but I have uninstalled and reinstalled all the latest drivers and such for my Core and Stealth and this problem continues to happen. Seeing how others have fixed their issue with their Cores, I have tried switching my network from 2.4 GHz to 5 GHz and my problem still exists. I have also tried attempting to "bend" the metal corner of the rail with the sensors towards the mesh of the Core, which also did not work well, but maybe that's because I bent it the wrong direction. I am running out of ideas to fix this connection issue between my Core and laptop and would love to hear your feedback. Thanks! :D

    Unlike core v2 and chroma x, v1 still mix USB ports bandwidth on same thunderbolt controller with the gpu so it might be jam especially on load that resulting your issue. The best thing to do is not using io ports on enclosure instead use your external pheriperals directly to your stealth like using some hub. I heard- some user use the core v1 io ports with some hub that has ac adapter for its own, but I can’t confirm that since theoretically it’s bandwidth not power related.

    We have the same issue with the Core V1. It works good enough for a keyboard, but not even close for a mouse. We mainly use the V1 for a GPU to drive a large monitor, ethernet cable and a keyboard. We always plug in the mouse to the laptop. I upgraded to a Core Chroma and have had no issues at all. Sometimes my work Dell cannot see the monitors. I had to uninstall and reinstall the Thunderbolt drivers to fix that issue.
