eGPU Crashing when playing Rust

spent some time on this site and spec'd out that seems to be the most viable build for my mid-2015 MacbookPro

Config for the Macbook Pro is a 2.8GHz Quad-core i7, 16GB Ram - Retina display - internal gpu is a Radeon R9 M370X - and I have a LG 34" ultrawide quad display configured for 3440x1440 @ 60hz

I bought a Sonnet Breakaway and an AMD Radeon RX5700XT, also bought the apple TB3 to TB2 adapter and a TB2 cable for connection.

I've worked through the install setup of purge-wrangler. It works well, I'm getting good fps, and am overall very happy with the setup, except for...

the fact that RUST crashes the box after a few minutes of playing. Screen goes green and the computer freezes, I have to power down the box to get it to reboot. I quit playing a few months ago when it became too much for my internal gpu to handle. I was hoping this new setup would allow me to return.

Any insight would be appreciated.


To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.
