I upgraded the GPU in my primary rig, so I had a Vega 56 with an EK fluid gaming water block sitting around. My MacBook Pro could use a GPU so I paired the Vega with the Razer Core X. The blower cooler wasn't getting the job done, so I decided a custom water loop was the way to go. So a cheap aluminum radiator off Amazon, some fitting and an EK pump later I have a slick water cooled eGPU.

For the pump I used an EKWB EK-XTOP SPC-60 PWM

For the radiator I picked up a cheap aluminum one off Amazon for $20, a uxcell model.

The Vega 56 water block is the EK-AU Fluid Gaming model.

The loop works great, the temps sit at 59-60 degrees C under a full stress load, and the setup is virtually silent.

And yes it all fits into the housing! I had to swap the 45 degree fitting coming off the GPU (pictured) for 2 90's to make it all work. The hardest part was getting the air bubbles out of the loop, but the T fitting worked well enough.

@alexander_preston Excellent work making everything fits inside the Razer Core! How do you secure the radiator?

@itsage

I didn’t secure it, just rolled the dice and slid it all into the case. I don’t move the eGPU around, it just lives on my desk, so it should be ok.
