I recently upgraded my M15x with a i7 920XM and a GTX 780M.
Flashed the modified vbios, got a 330W brick, pulled the pin, installed newest drivers and did some gaming.
Everything worked pretty well, only sometimes the 780M reached 93C and clocked down, but still ran stable, never crashed.
Therefore I decided to get a finer TIM and repaste. Bought the Noctua NT-H1, carefully repasted and voila, temps dropped around 15C.
But here comes the catch: when trying Furmark or some very intensive game, the GPU reaches 88C and screen immediately turns a random color. No downclocking, no limiting, just a sudden crash. Only thing I can do is a hard reset. This doesnt happen on any other occasion, can game on 80C for an hour.
Do you guys have any sort of idea why the laptop crashes at 88C, while before it worked at 90+ without a problem?
Things I tried:
Used DDU and reinstalled the drivers, also tried older version.
Cleaned everything, no dust left anywhere.
Carefully checked the GPU for any visible damage or old TIM residue.
Tried undervolting and underclocking, only took longer to get to 88C and still crashed.
For the sake of it I actually strapped a Corsair H45 AIO to the GPU heatsink. Now i get to max 55C with furmark, but the laptop still cashes after around 2 minutes.
I would be happy for any suggestion, thanks!
Hello! My name is Arman! I from Armenia, and sorry for my English!
I have iMac Late 2013 with Intel core i5, 8Gb, NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M 1024 Mb. I have Boot Camp installation on my iMac (now i have 7 Windows, but i can update it to 10 or 8 Windows)
I discover that there is an Akitio 2, wich can use with iMac 2013 for productivity increase. I want to use akitio 2 with GTX 1050 ti 4Gb, but i dont know how it is intalling on iMac?
Who can write for me the process of installation ALL equipment (akitio 2 + GTX 1050 ti + imac)? What i must to do? I talking about from the very beginning to the very end.
PLEASE everyone, help me. You are my last chance !!!!
Hi guys, im selling a modified akitio thunder 2 enclosure with an nvidia zotac 960 ddr5 2gb. I also include the power supply unit, you wont have to do any aditional manipulation.
Hi guys. I have had my egpu setup and running fine for the past year or so on my mbp (mid 2012) which has a hdd drive.
I now want to improve the gaming performance, so I've bought an ssd.
I manage to get through all the steps in eGPU Setup 1.2 but when i go through the bootloader, it says at the very end "No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key".
I'm guessing it is to do with my ssd being in the optical drive bay location (i assume this is hd1) and the original hdd (hd0) being disconnected, so windows can't see it when in bootloader.
I think I need to edit the config file for the chainloader, so the bootloader reads the ssd but what exactly do i need to change?
I tried changing the map section (line 55):
map (%FIRSTHDD%) (hd0)
Changing the (hd0) to (hd1) put the bootloader in a loop!? So I am not sure what to try next...
Any help is greatly appreciated!
