Need advice: Frustrated with Windows bootcamp + Sapphire vega 64 (nitro +) + Mantiz Venus 2.0

Dear guys

I bought my setup (see build below) to be able to play PUBG and other medium-load games on my macbook pro
The game runs well for 2-3 minutes and then the MV2 crashes and needs several resets and power-offs to work again. I tried 'AMD Wattman' to take down the watt 50 % but it still crashes within 5 minutes
I need your feedback for what I could do next? 

Macbook Pro 15 " touch-bar 2016
OS: Bootcamp Windows 10 Pro
GPU: Sapphire Vega 64 Nitro + 
Egpu:Mantiz Venus

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

You would need a 650W power supply to handle the RX Vega 64 unfortunately.

Especially the Vega 64 Nitro+ is quite power hungry. My tip: Use a Vega 56, still a good card or upgrade the PSU.
