I've noticed today that my eGPU is a little louder than it was earlier. (Razer Core X).  At least I think it's the eGPU - I have to go under the desk to be sure (it's next to the Mini).  Is there a way from MacOS to monitor (or even adjust) the eGPU?  Like to see temps, etc?

Probably not.

Is it maybe a good idea to clean the card and PSU with compressed air to recover normal behavior?

The fans should ramp up and down.  They have ramped down.  I just want to know what it was doing.

I believe iStat menus should show card temperatures at least

it does, but only on TB3 connection... if the Mac or eGPU is TB2 then iStat won't show temp info

 

and all my Macs are TB1/2 Evil

My mac is TB1 and last I checked it worked for me. This was a while back though and I didn't buy a full license so I'm not sure if it has changed.
