I built my eGPU setup with an Akitio thunder 2 and a Zotac gtx 970 a few weeks ago. It worked pretty well, but the fans of the eGPU doesn't change speed, neither under high usage... I heard about zotac firestorm and other drivers that can control the fan´s speed, but I want to keep OS X and don't want to change to windows... So I opened the case checked with a multimeter how high or low the voltage of the fans are, but somehow I touched with both poles of the fans and the whole setup shut down. I rebooted it and the eGPU worked fine, but the fans doesn't move ant all... I disconnected them and powered them separately and they spin! That means that it could only be a software problem.
I hope you can help me
I am a newbie in this forum and I've known about eGpu for just a few days. So i want to ask you some questions. I have an HP Elitebook 8570p and this is my specs :
Intel core i5-3320m
VGA: AMD HD 7570m
I am planning to use an EXP GDC beast 8.0 and there are 2 options i am wondering : radeon r9 380 and gtx 970. I like r9 380 more because it's cheaper, but someone says it's hard to set up an AMD card for a laptop which also have AMD dGPU . IN the other hand,a GTx is easier to set up and have better performance. SO which one should i buy ?
Another question : As I know a core I5 CPU always have integrated card Intel HD 4000 on it, but when I check in the device manager there's only dGPU Radeon 7570m. Is it possible for me to use an EGPU?
Sorry for my English . Please help me and thanks in advance
MSI GTX 1060 MXM successfully working on Alienware M18X R2 (another socket victory against BGA crap)By aaronloveweed
Hi All! First thread poste here!
Very happy with my beast ..again!
m18x R2 on modded bios (SG mode needed, optimus mode igfx+dGpu)
So my msi 1060 from alezka.com (Woodzstack thank you) was arrived yesterday, fast, very well packaged , and with a bit of icdiamond7.
Removed (not very well..buyed and used a dremel for first time) the tiny metal square on heatsink , that touch ram on 1060.
put thermal pads everywhere to match heatsink space.
Absolutely do not tight or strengt too much the gpu because has on his backside a big squared capacitator that push on motherboard
Here 3dmark11 to start benching
msi1060 (stock clocks) + 3920xm(4.2Ghz) on m18xR2 .
Max GPU temp 71° (at 24° t.amb).
And Here 3dMark
Max GPU temp 71° (at 24° t.amb).
GPU max temp 72°
Now I'm start to look if performance is aligned with other 1060's powered laptops.
All suggestion are very welcome!
Have Clevo P170SM and working music and video production. Processor: Intel core i7 4800mq 2.7GHz with turbo boost up to 3.7GHz x8 (47W), Graphic: Radeon R9 M290X 256BIT 4GB DDR5 (100W) + Intel HD 4600, Memory : 24GB DDR3 1600MHz, SSD 3x Samsung Evo 1tb, and interested for upgrades, so if somebody have experience with GPU NVidia GTX 1070M 8GB (150W): https://www.digitaltrends.com/computing/gtx-10-series-mobile-reveal/ and CPU AMD Ryzen 7 1700 (65W) : http://www.trustedreviews.com/amd-ryzen-7-1700-review. Of course I will have to change memory with DDR4-2400, but question is, will the 230 watt power adapter be enough and should I expect some more problems (except money) to do that. Thank's in advance.
