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.

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?
