Honestly forgot my login for my old account so rolling out a new one.  

 

Anyways a simple question.  I have the options to purchase a used Razer Core v1 (~$125) or a used Core X (non-Chroma) (~$140).  

I'm curious as to whether there is a significant difference in the chips used for the enclosures that might hinder performance/stability.  

As for other specs, I'm running as follows: 

Dell XPS 9575 i7-8705G 16GB DDR4

Nvidia EVGA 1080Ti SC2

Planning on running external io (keyboard/mouse) but not too bothered by running them on laptop ports

Thanks!

@sneeaky-2, Go with the Core X. Core V1 uses TI82 USB-C controller which doesn't have the best support. The Core X also has more internal room and higher PSU output.

Thanks for the advice! So essentially from an eGPU standpoint (other than room and power supply) there shouldn't be a difference? 

As much as the internal room is nice, my GPU is a 2-slot ~300W peak card and I do travel some for work.  My primary concerns are stability.
