I've coil whine with the XG Station and a MSI 1060 GPU, too. - It helps if you start a programm which keeps the graphics card a tiny bit busy. For my graphics card it is enough to start Microsoft Word and coil wineing is gone. Not all programms are working ie. starting an Browser had no effect.

I have nasty coil whine from my Rx580 as well. I'm wondering if using an external power brick means lower quality power feeding through.

Is there anything on the chassis where a laptop lock and/or cable could be attached/looped through? For use with something like this for example:  https://www.kensington.com/us/us/v/7164/1686/combination-laptop-locks

@honkusmaximus There's no Kensington lock slot on the XG Station Pro. The enclosure itself is fairly modular so you can use some type of combo chain lock to keep it locked at a desk.

@itsage Thanks. I know there's no actual lock slot but was just curious if there were any easily accessible external protrusions that could serve a similar purpose.

It looks like on the XG Station Pro one would have to remove a side panel and thread the cable through part of the frame. Is there any less invasive way to secure it that you can think of without involving the removal of any panels? Reason I ask is I'm currently using a Mantiz Venus and it's simple enough to loop the cable through the lower section that serves as the "foot" if you will.

@honkusmaximus The one solution I could think of is to loop the cable through the metal cover of the PCIe screws. Use an uncommon screw head here to both secure the enclosure and GPU.

I just received an XG Station Pro today. Installed a two year old 980ti from EVGA. Connected to my Lenovo Legion y720 laptop in the hopes I'd be able to use both the internal 1060 and the 980ti for rendering in Blender. Plugging in an running the XG S Pro disables the internal card with no work around from Asus or Lenovo. I'm assuming there just aren't enough PCIe lanes... if anyone knows otherwise, I'd love to hear it!

not sure about the razer core v2, but since its essentially a taller v1, I can say that the v1 is significantly heavier compared to the xg station without its power brick

I am a complete noob in egpu! The gtx 1080 ti requires a 600 watt psu but there is 300 watt psu. How did you run a 1080 ti on it?
