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?

      Hallo Leute,
      Ich habe mir zu Weinachten eine Akitio Thunder 2 mit einer EVGA GTX 1060 6gb für meinen late 2013 IMac mit einem 120W AC Adapter von Leicke geholt.
      Zu meinem Problem, Ich habe alle mögliche Treiber probiert ich habe mein Windows zweimal neu aufgesetzt und
      habe verschiedene Sachen im Geräte Manager deaktiviert. Was kann ich da jetzt noch machen das die evt. doch geht?
      Danke schon mal im voraus

      So my laptop (latitude e6430) has an expresscard, so I wanted to get a eGPU for it. I did some research, and already got the adapter, but theres one thing I need. I need to know what is my TOLUD and what GPU should I buy for it, respectively. Here I attach a screenshot of my device manager and my laptop's specs so that someone may help me. If I got this right, my tolud should be 3.5Gb. Is this true, and if so, what GPU should I buy?
      Processor: i7-3520M
      RAM: 8GB
      note: sorry that the screenshot is in spanish, but I dont think that should matter

      Hi guys, I need some help from you guys if you wouldn't mind.  I'm useless

      Specs:-

      Samsung RV520
      8gb DDR3
      I7 2720qm @2.2ghz
      1x HDD 500gb
      1x HDD 300gb
      Nvidia GTX 650 Ti BOOST
      EXP GDC BEAST 8.5c
      DIY Setup 1.3
      DELL 220w PSU

      After a lot of messing around I have managed to get this egpu to work when downgrading to 2gb, Which makes me think I just need to change my TOLUD to get it to work. I have read and tried to make a successful DSDT file however I don't really know what I'm doing with these driver edits and haven't been able to get it to work particularly the error fixing on compiling the dsdt.

      However When I did have it working on 2gb ram. I ran heaven Bench, The GTX 650 under load makes strange noises and crashes the display driver multiple times. Could any of you more knowledgeable individuals give me a hand please  Thanks

      After some trial and mostly error, I've come to seek help. This is my setup:
      Dell Inspiron 5759 Windows 10 8 GB RAM Intel i7-6500U Internal GPU: AMD R5 M335 EXP GDC v8 via NGFF (wifi card) External GPU: AMD RX560 4GB Corsair VS350 What I've done so far: I first started with a GTX 1050Ti. My laptop did recognise that card, but obviously I got the code 43 error due to NVidia banning the use of eGPU's in their 10xx series. So I returned that card and bought a RX 560 instead. But now I have even more problems. It's either blackscreen or booting on the internal display. I've tried to hotplug (boot with wifi card, and then when in sleepmode swapping for eGPU), delay the boot by going into BIOS, turning the ATX power on (permanent power via EXP GDC). The only thing I haven't tried is the delay on the EXP GDC.
      Any help is greatly appreciated.

      Hello everyone, I currently use my laptop for school/work and I know I could have gotten a better one but I didn't pay for it was given to me from my job. I recently purchased an HP omen accelerator and put a MSI 1050 ti in it. Knowing this set up wasn't going to work. My laptop is a i7  HP ENVY x360 Convertible-15m-bp0xx, it doesn't have any thunderbolt ports, it has a USB Type-C port with HP Sleep and Charge. I provided the picture, look at my ignorance. Please help. Is there another way around this, I feel like intel could have came up with a substitute by now.
