  1. Hi Everyone,

    I cannot get enough of the EGPU setup. I keep coming back for more. After picking up a RB 14 UHD from Ebay on the cheap I decided to take another look at the Razer Core. Specifically the X. As expected the setup was plug and play after loading drivers. My GPU runs very hot so watercooling is the best fix. The Core X allowed for this with some quick and easy mods.

    eGPU hardware: Razer Core X - replaced PSU with new Corsair SFF 600w PSU and the 120mm with a NZXT Kracken G12 and Corsair H55 AIO.

    Benchmarks: As expected, running similar numbers as 1080ti and other Titan X Pascal cards on TB3. Temps are excellent with the GPU never going above 50 degrees with undervolt applied (30 mins of Heaven finished at 44 degrees). CPU never going above 70 with turbo enable, undervolt applied and liquid metal repaste.

    Really liking this setup. The mods were very easy to complete. The Core X seems to be designed to mod. The AIO fan/radiator and PSU are held down with velcro and secure. If keeping long term it would be easy to add more permanent attachments. I also noted with the PSU removed there is space for a small water pump making full watercooling a possibility.

    Nice!! Can you upload some benchmarks like 3Dmark by any chance.
     
  3. I am traveling but ran a Firestrike Ultra at just under 6000. I can post this weekend.

    Great, it’ll be nice if you run normal one also the time spy. Since a lot user including me doesn’t have full version of 3Dmark;)
     
  5. Here is a Timespy benchmark with overclock. Score was 7000 without the overclock.

    I’m wondering if the watercool needs a seperate power cord? I’m new to this and I have a Vega 56 and looking for this solution. I just want it to be quieter. I have a Razer Core X and trying to research what I can’t do to lower noise.

    I have a few questions
    + Does the Bracket and the Radiator need seperate power cords
    + How do you pump the water through the radiator

    Your response would be more so valuable.

    Thankyou
     

  7. Hi,

    The radiator is a All in One (AIO) and will not require a water to be added. When you purchase a AIO the water, pump and fan are all included.

    In this setup there is a 1 to 3 fan wire adapter needed. This adapter is connected to the PSU to provide power to the 3 components. I also changed the PSU as the installed PSU look to require me to splice the wires.

    I cannot speak to you specific scenario as I have never heard a Vega 56 card. If the Vega 56 is compatible with the Kracken G12 then bolt on a AIO. If the noise is still not ideal then change the 120mm fan the AIO came with to a quieter model. You could also try undervolting the GPU to lower heat which would prevent the GPUs fan from going 100%.

    Good luck.

    Nice work, I've been playing around with my Core X also. Some custom cables from cablesmods would really help with the mess of wires you have. Great work.
     

  9. Thanks!

    Completely agree. I looked into custom cables but have not really dug into actually ordering. I will take a look. If I order, I will post the updated setup.

    Also did the new power supply line up nicely at the back for the switch and power plug?
     
  11. Yes, very fortunate how it lined up. The power switch is accessible.

    Looked into custom cables for a moment. May just have to leave it like this for awhile.
