RGB GPU limitations?

My setup consists of a Razer Blade Stealth, a Razer Core X Chroma, and an ASRock RX 5700 XT Taichi OC+.  This particular graphics card has controllable RGB in the center fan.  During initial setup, I discovered that the software ASRock provides to control the RGB did not work, showing this error when opening the software:

"Access violation at address 0074FFDA in module 'AsrPolychromeRGB.exe'. Read of address 0000000C."  (I would attach the picture but it seems I can't?)

After chatting with ASRock support, updating drivers, and eventually killing the RGB altogether due to a failed RGB controller update, ASRock replaced the card.  The new one is showing the same behavior, throwing the same error when opening the software.  

Is this due to a limitation in an eGPU setup?  Or is it possible there is some error in the Razer Core X Chroma that is keeping my PC from communicating with the RGB in the graphics card?


Other than the RGB issue, the graphics card works great.

If the GPU is working, then their RGB driver is broken.
