    So I bought a Razer Blade Mid 2019 240hz, then I bought a 2080 ti, then I bought a Razer Core X Chroma....

    When I hooked it all up, the GPU wouldnt change, it took me around 8 hours.... to finally get it to register the GPU.

    Oh I should mention, ive got the Razer Laptop Chroma stand thingie, and Razer Mamba Elite, Razer Blackwidow X Tournament and a Razer Goliath Extended Chroma.

    When I use more then one device on the Razer Core X Chroma... My lighting shuts off, I hear the disconnect noise, on and off again, my mouse blanks out. (I had goliath, mouse, keyboard and laptop stand all hooked up to the Core X)

    So I thought it was Synapse 2, since... It was conflicting, I un-installed it, so my FPS even in 2D games were low on the 2080 ti, on monster hunter world... at low settings I was getting 10 FPS in the main menu, and my Razer Blade would not turn off or restart (had to hold power button)...

    I eventually figured out this problem, Updated everything done everything.

    Then all of a sudden my chroma lights started going out again, So uninstalled Synapse 3... reinstalled... Then my laptop stand lights just froze, turned off the laptop, turned back on... Still the lights remained. (This then happended with the Goliath Extended, lights froze)

    So at the end of the day, I just plugged all my USB devices into the laptop... and everything is working fine.

    Is there a driver I am missing for the Razer Core X Chroma? like the USB hub... Are chroma lights too much power for the USB ports to run?... All devices looked like they installed fine... and work fine when plugged directly into the laptop... Any help or ideas?, I would love to try them!...

    You aren't missing anything at all. The USB hub issue you are experiencing is to be expected given the beastly GPU you hooked up to the Core X Chroma. The data transfer and constant communication between the eGPU and laptop aren't leaving much room for all other devices to communicate properly with the RB15.

    OH, so it prioritizes GPU/External Monitor, which is why my screen never turned off?

    Should I just do the ugly thing... and like plug all my things into the back of the laptop stand.... and just have my TB3 Connection handling my GPU/Monitor... and my Laptopstand handle, mouse, keyboard and stuff? and plug that in by single USB... Which literally just ruins the point of me being the Core X Chroma LOL... Since I wanted to use that as my hub? (still looks pretty thou :) )

    Ironically: Its fine If I dont plug in the mouse and laptop stand at the same time.

    I don't really recommend using USB Hubs for peripherals but if that set up works for you then it's all good.
