I own a Lenovo Y510p with a GT755M SLI configuration (which almost always overheats/crashes for games that DO support them) and i plan to set up an eGPU for it.
I've done a considerable amount of research on the topic but there are still doubts to ascertain before moving on.
1) Is it possible for the latest series of GPUs (GTX 1070, GTX 1080) from Nvidia to be used as an eGPU? Those who've already tried it used stuff like the Razer Core or it's other branded equivalent. What I'm looking for is the complete DIY version using the EXP GDC V8 connected to the mPCIE underneath the laptop (the one which the wifi card uses). I am aware of the Thunderbolt tests on Macs but I'm curious about it's performance on the mPCIE. And would it be compatible with the mPCIE adapter? Would it be too "new" for my laptop bought in 2014?
2) If it is possible, would it be worth it? Would the bottle-necking of the mPCIE be enough to diminish its worth? I wouldn't want to go for the GTX 970 or GTX 980 because my long term plan would be to use the GTX 1070 on a desktop set up once I settle down. (I'm a travelling student btw)
Thanks in advance.
I have a Lenovo Y50 with a shitty Wifi-Card and i wanted to unlock the BIOS, so i can replace it with a better one! Now I saw there are Instructions for the Y500 but none for the Y50! Is there a possibility for me to unlock it on my own, or do I have to rely on other Users on this Forum, who know how to do it? Greatly appriciate any help regarding that matter :/. My BIOS is on V1.13 by the way.
After months of figuring out why my Alienware M14 R1 has been overheating, I've discovered that it had something to do with the bios.
I've tried every compatible BIOS on the Dell website and have failed to solve the problem. Still gets hot even on idle.
Except, Dell doesn't have A06 for some reason.
Do you guys have a copy of the A06 BIOS? Dell Customer Support is pretty crappy .
Hi together :-)
As the title says I'm having a little Issue after upgrading my m6700's graphics card from the K3000M to the newer K4100M:
Everything seems to work properly, but under load (i.e. 3D applications) it produces crashes / system instability after ~5-20 seconds.
When I reduce the chip- and memory-clocks in MSI Afterburner as far as possible, it takes a bit longer until it crashes, but eventually it always does after a minute or so.
When running on battery power (and thus even further reduced clocks) everything runs stable for arbitrarily long times.
This sounds like a thermal problem to me. However, the reported GPU temperature never exceeded 65°C, which I think is OK.
I guess the memory chips are not temperature monitored seperately, are they? So maybe I should replace the memory thermal pads by new ones?
What I've already tried/checked/looked at:
- Uninstalled previous drivers with "Display Driver Uninstaller"
- Latest Nvidia Drivers can be installed properly (and also tried a few older versions)
- Notebook BIOS is up to date
- Tried three different Video-BIOS versions
- Graphics card is not recognized by Notebook BIOS properly ("Unknown video card")
- Graphics card is recognized under Windows, though (Device-manager / Nvidia control-panel / GPU-Z and so on)
- Sometimes after a crash the system recovers and a pop-up says that the nvidia graphics driver crashed and was restarted
- Of course, I'm using the large 240 Watt Power supply
Ok, that's about everything I remember to be relevant at the moment.
I'd appreciate any kind of help :-) ... If you need further Information, just let me know, and I'll try to deliver it.
Thank you, Florian
