@itsage yes I agree. And it depends on what the drive is doing... if it's a fast cache in video production also using the card for renders there may be loss of bandwidth. But as a fast master store "read occasionally" it might just be fine. Pretty easy to test with some benchmarking tools.

Is it possible to remove the PSU and connect another PSU with a greater W externally? It got really hot when launching games such as APEX LEGENDS, MHW with my RTX2070 super...anyway, just an idea to kill the temperture and maybe availbe for overclocking the GPU?.

@un_lee, It is possible. I would say to try running the existing components first without the outer shell on.

Check this thread: https://egpu.io/forums/psu-cables/replacement-psu-razer-core-x/

They're quite similar, so I guess the same applies to the Core X Chroma

How about something bigger, say, storing your Steam library there?

The drive will be able to use its full bandwidth while loading a game, and once it's loaded the GPU kicks in and the drive goes to rest.

Just something I came up with off the top of my head, I'm sure there's a ton more to it and you'd need to do a lot more research.
