Unstable performance, screen freezes

Hello everyone, my first Egpu build and post here 🙂 
Im having a strange problem with my setup (MSI Gaming RX580, Asus N750JV laptop with I7-4700HQ and 8GB of ram, mining GPU adapter). I made a custom enclosure, a custom PSU and everything seemed to run fine until i started experiencing sudden screen (actually the whole win 10) freezes. Only restarting helped. Now what makes this problem weird is the fact that this has never happened during my playthrough through Far Cry : New Dawn on almost max settings. It only seemes to happen when the GPU is not fully loaded (on desktop, web browsing ..). Also it seems to be completely random. I tried swapping PSUs, did not help. My theory is that it has something to do with the GPU changing power states ? Another strange thig that happens sometimes is that i fire up a game (Rage 2 for ex.) And it runs fine (~40fps) for a while and then it suddenly drops to around ~20 and does not want to climb back. Gpu load does not seem to change. Maybe someone with more experience than me might have some troubleshooting ideas ? 🙂

Pending: Add my system information and expected eGPU configuration to my signature to give context to my posts
