Hey,

I am trying to get an eGPU setup working with my x240. I bought the GDC Beast v8.4 with NGFF cable. The reason why I am posting in this thread is the following. Of course I was facing the whitelist issue and luckily I found this expert thread. I now ordered the SPI Programmer and Test Clip to dump the BIOS.

Before I dive down the rabbit hole any further I have two questions.

1. Does anybody know if the x240 is even compatible with the mentioned eGPU solution? Is the NGFF slot SATA only or PCIE compatible? Unfortunately I found no adequate answer on the internet so far.

2. Is my plan feasable? Next steps would be to -dump BIOS file and attach it in this thread -hopefully have whitelist removed -connect eGPU setup (all parts already on my table) -hopefully have a working setup.

 

Sorry for my lenghty post, but I find myself overwhelmed by all the stuff I have to factor in right now and I am almost discouraged to continue my plan.

Hi!

Yes it's possible, after you flash unlocked bios, then whitelist will be unlocked and all Wi-Fi cards will work, but you can't enter in bios setup menu, because you don't know your password.

It depends on which mod to make.

      Hi guys, I am the proud owner of a Clevo p775dm3-g notebook purchased from azom.systems (authorized Clevo reseller in India, Model rebranded as Azom Legion-17.3 inches). Here are my specs:

      Core i7 7700 (non-K version): undervolted by 110 mv and turbo boost disabled in BIOS- machine uses prema mod BIOS.
      GTX 1080: undervolted by 100 mv on all frequency steps using MSI afterburner voltage/frequency curve editor. clocks are untouched.
      16 GB DDR4: Cant remember clocks.
      1440p 120 Hz screen: No tinkering done to refresh rate.

      CPU has been delidded and repaste has been done on both CPU/GPU dies with gallium based TIM-Coolaboratory liquid ultra if I recall correctly.

      My issue is GPU hitting max temp limit of 90 degrees while playing DOOM and framerate drops from 110 avg to mid 60s-70s with horrible stuttering- this is thermal throttling for sure.

      System was running beautifully after repaste at 86 degrees max/ 77 degrees average at 100 percent fan speed. A month later I decided to see how much further I could push the system and ended up undervolting the CPU/GPU and RAM even further. The RAM undervolting part didnt work as well as I'd hoped, and I ended up resetting the BIOS to undo everything and reapply the previous setting (-110 for CPU with turbo boost disabled.) 

      I noticed that immediately after BIOS reset, both my CPU and GPU temps were 5-10 degrees higher even with the undervolt/underclock applied. Also, I think the fans were a bit louder before I reset the BIOS which leads me to believe that for some reason the fans are now capped at 80% max fan speed. There doesnt seem to be a fan speed selector in the BIOS or anywhere else so I cant say for sure whether this is a fan related issue or something else.Before the reset I could override the BIOS setting and set the fans to 100% by pressing fn+1, could I have done something to that setting after resetting the BIOS ? I dont think I have damaged the CPU or GPU as temps are holding fairly steady at 90-91 degrees and laptop doesn't shut down while gaming.

      If I have overlooked something or if anyone reading this has any solution help would be greatly appreciated.
      All settings/drivers/windows version/app version are exactly the same before and after BIOS reset.
