With Headless Ghost HDMI Dummy you can work with a 4K resolution, with the enjoy's resistor solution not, only 1080p.

I don't think that's true since the op has screenshots showing native resolution. Right?

 

the secondary monitor at 1080 is good enough for this solution right??

 

great suggestion btw

I think irokez might be up to something.

 

If we get that 4k adapter can we play on native 2560x1600 ???

Yes you can, you can create it via NVIDIA Control panel, custom resolutions, its just progressive not native but who cares :) the performance will be the same with the 4k fake adapter or our VGA fake adapter ...

@enjoy Your case-mod looks great. Can you show inside your box how you were able to fit in the enclosed case the power cable into the graphic cards.

I got the 1060 SC and Akitio thunder 3, for my Mac 13 2016 with TB. Have everything ready except the Akitio Case coming next week.

1, I made by myself 90 degrees 6 pin i use one of my  Startech.com 6 inch PCI Express Power Splitter Cable to close the Akitio

2. I buy 6-pin to 6+2-pin PCI-E power cable (you can use 6pin to 6 pin but i cant find here in Bulgaria), cut him and put him in the Akitio original hole close to Akitio Barell plug

3. I remove the Akitio back panel (also help for the Air)

I will make picture inside when i clean the Akitio Case mod for the dust in future!

Hi, is there any other way to use the internal display of the MAC instead using the adapter with the resistors?

BTW thanks a lot for the tutorial.

For everyone who is interested:

 

Here is the deference between Thunderbolt™ 1,Thunderbolt™ 2 and Thunderbolt™ 3

 

In my case, my eGPU have TB1 (PCIe x4 2.0) so we have only 5% drop vs. TB2 and TB3, so no reason to update to TB2 or TB3 laptop and Akitio Node or Akitio TB3 :) I will have only 5-10% better performance from what i read or 5 FPS increase in games with other words!

Hi again, I have everything setup (even the resistors). My last step is the eGPU setup 1.2. I looked online but I couldn't find it... Since I think it is not possibile to put the link here, could you just tell me by PM please?

Thanks

 

Edit: I'm trying to make it working without installing eGPU setup 1.2, but the NVIDIA Control Panel keep saying I don't have an NVIDIA card attached to the display. Is because I don't have installed that software? Or it is another problem?

Hi!

What a great setup/build, I love it. I love to build such with my MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015), 2.2 GHz Intel Core i7, 16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3, Intel Iris Pro 1536 MB. My primary reason for building is to accelerate the performance of rendering in my motion graphics applications (e.g. Adobe and Cinema 4D) not really for gaming. I already ordered the Akitio Thunder 2, planning to order the GTX 1060 GPU and other stuffs that it is needed. But read that the GTX 1060 draws about 300w and the Dell DA2 is 220w, is that enough to power the box and the GPU together? and can I still remove the VGA and hook external monitor via HDMI when like?

Please I would also like to know if you cut the height of the Male pin for the 90 degrees 6 pin you use from one of your Startech.com 6 inch PCI Express Power Splitter Cable for the Akitio to be able to close?

@Awesome EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB SC GAMING - draws 120W info - http://www.evga.com/products/product.aspx?pn=06G-P4-6163-KR so no problem about the power, you can use external or internal display like me with no problem!

 

Yes i use mod one of Startech.com 6 inch PCI Express Power Splitter Cable to close the Akitio Thunder2 :)

      Hello Everyone,
      I had recently purchased an exp gdc beast v8.0 and I tried using a gtx 1050 with it and I'm getting error 43. It's said that the 372.70 driver works and does not give error 43 but when I try to install that driver it gives me an error before installing saying that no compatible nvidia graphics hardware found or something like that so I'm unable to install the driver but I heard the driver helps. So far I've not been able to find any guides on how to mod my driver, all I know is that it has something to do with editing the INF file. Can anyone please guide me on how to mod the driver or even mail me a copy of their modded INF file on my email jatindilip0@gmail.com It will be a great help. My laptop model is a gigabyte p15fv2. 
      Thanks for reading

      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 --harddrives=1
      if "%DRV%"=="C"
       
      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!
       
      Thanks

      I have  Lenovo e540 with an EXP GDC Beast 8.4d and a GTX 660.
      The nvidia display driver crashes with a black screen for a few seconds when launching some games or when the egpu is used for a while, it sometimes will recover
      My external power supply is 350W and the card has a power consumption of 140W so I do not think this is a power issue.
       
      "Event 4101
      Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered."
       
      What I have tried:
      A GTS450 instead of the GTX 660.
      Setting the PCIe port to Gen 1 in egpu setup.
      Setting the PCIe port to Gen 2 in egpu setup.
      Setting the Nvidia power management to maximize performance in the Nvidia control panel.
      Going back to the driver version 327.23, I got a blue screen instead of a crash when using this version.
      Disabling HDMI audio in the Nvidia control panel.
       
      Any suggestions or advice on this issue?
       
      Thank you
