Hi Oliver, Tech Support at RAZER told me 100% the unit will not work.

So you believe this more than the experts on this site?

@itsage and @eightarmedpet themselves made it work several times. There are more than one user build where it works.
@mac_editor and @goalque made great software for the purpose to make it work.
I can personally guarantee that everything here that has been reported to work, works perfectly.

You say for yourself you "were not a tech enough", so why can you make such claims?

@dfphoto typically official tech support comms would not be aware/stick to policy. For example, if you were to ask Apple if eGPU works on Thunderbolt 2 or Bootcamp, they would say "it is not supported". We have scripts/hacks that allow for these possibilities, which we dub as community support. In your case, I am not sure why the Core V1 did not work if all patches (including Ti82 patch to get the V1 going) were applied appropriately. I see one build guide, but on macOS 10.12 that paired a Core with a TB1/2 Mac. So there is some precedent to it working.

There are a lot of Bootcamp setups where you even don't need a hack/script in order to get a eGPU working. I have two of them. Yet Apple support says "Bootcamp is not supported" while it's just "plug-it-in". They just don't want to make the extra support work.
