I am relatively new to the online PC gaming experience and would like some input on my next project. Right now, I would like to make myself a proficient (not two expensive) EGPU setup for my laptop. I don't have the funds nor the experience to build a tower yet so i want to start with this.
I have a Toshiba Satellite and here are its specs. :
Toshiba Satellite L50-C
Intel Core i7-5500U CPU - 2.4 GHz
16 G's of ram
My question is what setup including card, power supply, etc. I should use?
Thanks for your input ahead of time.
I would like to purchase an AMD RX - 470 4GB - 6 PIN.
Which model is most compatible with OS X 10.12, XFX or ASUS?
XFX - 470 - 4GB Black Edition
ASUS ROG STRIX - 470 4GB
It will be docked in:
- Akitio Thunder2 Pcie Box
- Dell DA2 powered
I have a big problem-> I need to undervolt my GPU (MSI 7970M@DELL_BIOS).
I am using this vBIOS: https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/132831/dell-hd7970m-2048-120629
Stock VDDC on this GPU is 1.050V and when I changing this one to 0.975 in VBE7 it is ok-> I can save it and flash it. Computer succesfully restarts but when I check modded settings the VDDC is still on 1.050V
I checked if the VBE7 seriously saving the VDDC to vBIOS but it is ok. I have no idead what i need to UV this card (i know it's possible...)
Everything is changing (GPU, MEM MHz) but VDDC can't change.
Please help me ;-)
1. What's the problem?
I have hooked up my eGPU through the ExpressCard Slot. I have installed all drivers. Under Device Manager it shows my eGPU. Sometimes it will show up with an error 12 but most of the time it does not. When I plug in the HDMI port to my TV, my TV acts like to it received a signal and fails displaying no signal.
2. Have you consulted the Troubleshooting FAQ to resolve the issue?
I believe I have delved into it thoroughly but nothing has worked. Thank you for getting me this far, I have been at this for days.
3. Have you consulted the Pre-Purchase FAQ --> "2. How can I check if my notebook is compatible with an eGPU?"
Yes, I have also seen many videos and posts of people using my exact same laptop with wonderful success.
Lenovo ThinkPad T420
Windows 7 64bit SP1
XFX Radeon HD 6870
EVGA 400W PSU [+12V Max Current = 30 Amps]
PE4C-EC060A V3.0 ( eGPU PCIe x16 interface for ExpressCard)
There are two-3 position switches located on the board. I have them set at their default 1 and 1.
The legend on the board notes this:
SW1 - PERST# Delay - 1 | Disable - 2 | 9.8 seconds - 3 | 14.8 seconds
SW2 - CLK Delay - 1 | Disable - 2 | 11.97 seconds - 3 | 16.9 seconds
I have tried these in every possible combination.
Any help resolving these issues would be greatly appreciated.
