am using purge-wrangler and am wondering how safe is Clean My Mac X to use with egpu? and what should i not do when doing a smc reset nvram, pram reset. The reason why im asking this is because yesterday when i did all these things i couldn't get past the booting loading screen and i had to reinstall my operation software again, am not sure what caused this but i like to prevent it in the future.  

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

@rudolphez, NVRAM reset re-enables SIP which prevents boot if your system is patched. To fix, simply re-disable SIP. Otherwise nothing else should interfere. Read the script's wiki page.

@rudolphez, I suggest to keep it always disabled because it ensures consistent boots. It is possible to start with SIP enabled in some circumstances (such as rebuilt kext cache).
