Comments 
1.  
Sometime my sound driver will be disabled automatically, have to disable and enable at device manager to make it work again
2. Trackpad seems like malfunction, although I use mouse 🙂
3 . When I connect external monitor directly to egpu or mbp, I feel like the cursor is not moving smoothly as in the internal monitor. Another problem is I cant gaming on external monitor, not sure is it because my game is installed in external HDD because my mbp got 256Gb only.

I hope someone can teach me how can I play game on my external monitor, the flow is not there as compared in the internal monitor.

 

Soon I will add my system & eGPU details or a build link to this my signature to give context to my posts

Set the external monitor to be the primary display and you'll be able to use eGPU with it. I also noticed the lower memory speed in CUDA-Z. It's likely you used a right Thunderbolt 3 port for this setup. Switch to using one of the left ports to get full bandwidth.

Thanks for your advice, I will swap the port and update here if there is any difference.

I used a left thunderbolt 3 which near the 'esc' key. If I switch to the port near 'tab' key, error 12 occur. What do you suggest?
