Our chipset is Mobile Intel QM77 Express. That chipset has 4 ports of SATA2 and 2 ports of SATA3. SATA HDD and SATA ODD are SATA3. It means that in our laptop available RAID0 only.

 

 

I use the eSATA port to easily move the same main boot drive between 2 different units (so to maintain only one common software system). Although the internal SATA port is always @SATA 3 speed level, eSATA port is always limited to SATA 2 on every HDD/SSD I have used. I do not know if this limit is there by design. So, if the DVD drive is connected to the 2nd and last SATA 3, then the eSATA port, is limited to SATA 2 speed.

and I was thinking about taking an SSD casing off to where its just the PCB.

Hmm, I not sure, that first fan power supply can support second fan...

and what about compact ssd model? I want install it, too. But dont brands of compact sata ssd cases.

Ok it is clear now.  Strange choice by hp... wasted SATA3 speed on a slow DVD device

Because DVD is installed as Extension Bay device, and probably HP made some original HDD/SSD caddies for these laptops.

Guys, is there any owner of USB 3.0 "AKE" expresscard adapter that based on the uPD720202 chip? I've received one from ali, but cannot get it to work on Windows (error 10) and also cannot update the firmware (update tool just hangs). In linux it works after manual firmware upload, but only upon reboot. I want to try upload a dump from a definitely working
card.

I had 2 of those (same chip, I do not remember the firm, I do not use it any more), the one failed after some days or it was problematic from the beginning. Similar issues with you as far as I can remember with a hp 8710w, and then 2570p. Check settings about USB power management and disable all about this device from the Reneseas driver and the windows device manager. Somehow I have updated firmware without problem, alternatively try to update firmware on a different notebook, but there always be a chance of hardware being faulty.

I do not see how you could not ditch the optical drive, and plug into that sata 3 with another ssd and go beyond raid 0

Can you dump the data from 8-pin EEPROM of the working one, please? Well, i've tried to update firmware with disabled controller and it works now, thank you!

...it works like crap.

has no one run anything other than raid 0 on this little gem that we all like so much?

You still can make a software-based RAID by windows partition manager btw.

Because ODD can be substituted with fast SSD/HDD in caddy, I think this is the correct choice.

A portable SATA device is a better choice for my needs. Anyway, as there is no way to reverse this, I will live with SATA2 speed. So whenever eSATA port is going to be used, users will have to keep in mind of this limitation.

My 2570p successfully modified with X230's LG IPS Panel 
The first thing I did was removing all the magnesium guinding lines for antenna wires and LCD cable compartment screw mounting holes that were on the LCD's way. And because the LCD cable compartment can't be screwed anymore it's held on place with epoxy.
Removing the the panel's screw mounting points was the most risky part, but the metal was soft enough to be cut with long scissors. That required replacing the LCD tape, otherwise screen layers would come off. I used kapton tape covered with electric tape all along the edges. 
LCD cable appeared to be flexible enough to reach LCD's connector. The X230's panel is much thinner so there was enough room to do it.
The last thing to do was adapting the LCD bezel to the new screen. Because X230's panel is higher (the location of the circuit board) I had to cut 4 milimeters from the top of the LCD bezel. The different screen height exposed bottom LCD tape, so I replaced it with black tape. I also had to remove LCD bezel's bottom latches, now it's held on place with double-sided tape. 
If you've got any questions feel free to ask. 
Is this the first IPS 2570p ever?

hmmmm, some new requirements for the newest window 10 upgrade... will our systems comply? or have we finally gotten to the point where we are left behind???

 

At its Microsoft 365 Developer Day, the company detailed Windows 10X, it’s next-generation “expression” of Windows 10 which the company will release later this year. And the most remarkable aspect: Microsoft states that Windows 10X updates will take less than 90 seconds to complete. 

02/13 Update: Microsoft has released a Windows 10X emulator and development tools so anyone can test out a beta of new platform. Users will require a PC running Windows 10, using an Intel chipset (AMD support is coming later), 8GB RAM, 15GB space and a WDDM 2.4 graphics driver or later. You will also need the following bios features to be supported and enabled:

 

  • Hardware-assisted virtualization
  • Second Level Address Translation (SLAT)
  • Hardware-based Data Execution Prevention (DEP)

I can't imagin no one on here has any input on the above new requirements from MS

These requirements are only for emulator with W10X, not the system itself. Also W10X is only for tablets, revived "Courier" project, not for traditional laptops or mainstream PCs.

thanks MIO !    good to hear.    I got to reading and got a little lost.

 

anyone find a higher cfm fan yet that swaps out directly with the stocker?  getting a touch warm during some deep scans and think i is time to get more air across the heatpipe.

Hey, I have a little problem. Has anyone tried to do RADI0 on two different SSDs? SSDs are CT240BX500SSD and SSDPR-CX400-256. Does this computer allow? Can I do it that will format both drives, start windows live with a pendrive and connect both drives from it, then remove the pendrive and connect the new one from the windows installation, and install it on the resulting disk? Is it likely to succeed?

unlikely you would be able to use the leftover part of the drive, the raid will only use equal sizes, ssd is fast enough unless you are doing some serious huge file transfers/ video work.    the remaining 250 gb on the larger drive would be wasted.   Raid 0 just give 2 points of failure instead of 0ne and  you have no backup.

      Hi,
      I want to show you my new project.
      I bought my laptop about 5 years ago.  It was never speed deamon, but for every day use, it was enough to me.
       
      Its specification:
      Intel i7-4700MQ
      Nvidia GeForce GT745M
      16GB RAM
      512 SSD Adata SU800

       
      Yesterday I bought Witcher 3. Of course on 1080p it's impossible to play, because of about 10fps
       
      So I make a decision to buy external grahpic card.
      I choose GTX970 and now I am looking for occasion to buy it.
       
      I've already bought EXP GDC v8.4d mPCI-E. It is used and cost about 30$.

       
      I will use ATX PSU to supply graphic card, because I have old desktop PSU at home.
       
      My plan:
      1) unlock bios
      2) buy GTX 970
      3) enjoy Witcher 3!
       
      BTW I try to cool down my laptop, so I replaced thermal paste to Kryonout Thermal Grizzly and make some tests. Temperatures and fps are on screenshots.
       
      1) laptop on table, playing GTA V 1080p

       
      - first minute (GPU core 1045MHz)

       
      -after some time, because of high temperature and GPU throlttling (GPU core drop down even to 400MHz)

       
      2) with thermalpad Glacier NC400 SilentiumPC

      - 30 minute and longer (GPU core drop to about 900MHz)
       
      3) without down case of laptop (like on picture with thermal paste) on thermalpad.
      Here laptop never drops down MHz and max temp are about 72 Celsius degrees.

       
       
      Bacause of that I bought second down case for my laptop and I will cut there additional holes.
       
      Greetings!
       
      I will describe next step when I get all stuff I need!

      Hello everyone
      I created a case for egpu using 2.5mm acrylic sheets. The first time I created a case to support a GPU + ATX psu
      Now I created another one for the GPU with an external Xbox 360 203w psu.
      the finish was not good but for my use it is already good.
       
      *both cases album
      *Construction of the second case 
      *adapting xbox psu to 8pin power (taken from 24pin)
       
      all made by hand with the tools I had.

      from Brazil.

      Hello!
       
      I have recently acquired my Dell Inspiron 15 7000, and I am interested in building an egpu setup for it. It has a USB-C port. Any recommendations/guides out there?
       
      thanks.

      Hi there guys,
       
      I've been looking into getting a new GPU for my laptop (4-lane PCI-e) and enclosure (HP Omen Enclosure) but I cannot decided between the RX 5700 XT and the RTX 2070 (non SUPER).
       
      I did some price to performance calculations (higher is better) with some of the best prices I can currently get in the UK.
       

       
      The RX 5700 XT does perform better and is cheaper than the RTX 2070 (Although the 2070 does come with 2 games) but my main concern is drivers and from what I've heard NVIDIA cards work a lot better with eGPUs than AMD.
       
      If anyone has experience using both red & green or if anyone else has any other input i'd love to hear your experiences and input.
       
      Thanks.

      Hi guys, bit of a rookie to the whole EGPU scene. Currently I have:
       
      - MacBook Pro 2015 13inch (3.1GHz Core i7 16GB RAM)
      - Razer X Core 
      - Apple TB3 to TB2 Adapter
      -  TB2 Cable (Cable Matters)
      - 23inch AOC External Monitor
       
      I am wonder about what graphics card to get to run X-Plane11 with high graphic settings?
      I have purgewrangler set up and ready to use with an AMD graphics card, but am also open to the idea of an Nvidia graphics card.
      Any advice appreciated. I did not buy a Windows PC as I need a Mac for various other things and wanted an all-in-one laptop.
