Hello to all dear visitors,
I have been using Lenovo y510p notebook for two years but in games I think my graphic card is inadequate. After that I've bought Mini PCI-e EXP GDC and attached it to where the wireless card socket is. However because it has x1 speed its performance is too low. Even though on tests rx460's ranks is low than rx480, it has more performance.
In x1 PCI-e port, the performance is too low and inefficient. On GPUz programme, use of memory controller is 20% but use of GPU is 100%. I mean, I've been hooked to the x1 speed.
Components : EXP GDC version 8.0 +450w PSU + rx480
I've read all pages about ultrabay, I want to buy and to share in forum.
If anyone has ultrabay to PCI-e port, I want to buy. Please help.
Thanks for everything.
When my first CPU fan on Y500 is broke i replaced it on something compatible (non-original) and planned to replace it later on original. Since that time happened a lot things, but i still using that non-original fan. But i did some research and here is what i founded:
1. Forcecon (marked as FCN on fan)
DFS5413005MH0T-FC1C (5V - 0.5A)
Spotted in: Y400, Y500.
2. Asia Vital Components (marked as AVC on fan)
BNTA0612R5H-P007 (5V - 0.5A)
Spotted in: Y410p, Y500, Y510p.
3. Sunon (marked as SUNON MagLev on fan)
MG60120V1-C230-S99 (5V - 2.25W (0.45A))
Spotted in: Y410p, Y500.
So, which to choose? Any recomendation? Maybe there also unexpected way (completely diffirent fan from another company for another laptop)?
i have a z510 59398016 indian variant.
I had replaced the oem 1tb sshd on sata 3 port that came in it with 250 gb ssd 1 year ago.
now the optical disk drive on sata1 has gone haywire and i do not want to replace it as cd and dvd are obeolete and useless to me.
can some one suggest a caddy for z510 to use my old sshd in place of optical disc drive ?
would i be able to dualboot BW 2 drives if i do the above?
I tried caddy from local vendor but it is not getting recognised.
plz suggest some caddies compatible with z510
In case you own a Lenovo Y410p or Y510p laptop, you might be interested in upgrading its performance by installing an external graphics card. Ultrabay eGPU adapter designed by @gerald was proven to be a convenient plug-and-play option to do exactly that. However, for a long time only an AMD-branded GPUs could be used due to limitations in the Lenovo's stock BIOS. The purpose of the modified firmware presented here is to expand the range of available GPUs by enabling Nvidia support on Gerald's Ultrabay eGPU adapter.
Huge thanks to:
@MWichni - For efficiently assisting me during the development of this mod. By flashing dozens of BIOS builds over the course of several weeks and thoroughly describing the effects observed (or the lack thereof), he enabled me to fully understand necessary parts in BIOS structure and come up with a final solution. @svl7 - Whose unlocked BIOS / Whitelist mod has served as a basis for this modification. His discovery of a security hole in V2.07 BIOS has provided us with a convenient BIOS flashing method that does not require a physical programmer. The Unlocked BIOS and WLAN whitelist mods originally designed by him are also implemented in this BIOS mod. @gerald - For designing the aforementioned adapter. Without it, all this work would make very little sense.
Resolves the "40-second reboot" issue normally encountered while using Nvidia graphics cards with Ultrabay eGPU adapter, thus allowing all Nvidia cards to be used. Based on the latest V3.08 BIOS. Includes Svl7's WLAN whitelist removal mod - for the convenience of aftermarket WLAN card users. Includes Svl7's BIOS debug menu mod - for the ease of experimentation with newly available features, e.g. attempting to use Nvidia Optimus to pass eGPU video back to laptop's display.
NB! Svl7's Debug Menu is not a toy! It contains a lot of options that are either not supported or partially supported by the hardware platform and/or can disturb its normal operation or prevent the PC from booting up at all. Any of the entries not originally present in the stock BIOS should be modified at your own risk!
ANY MODIFICATIONS YOU ARE APPLYING TO YOUR HARDWARE ARE PERFORMED AT YOUR OWN RISK! AUTHOR OF THIS MOD DOES NOT HOLD ANY LIABILITY FOR LOSS OR DAMAGE RELATED TO USING THIS SOFTWARE.
If things don't go right:
If you intend using the GTX10XX-series Nvidia card as the eGPU (which you probably do), you are very likely to encounter the infamous Error 43 in Windows Device Manager. This is a widely known issue in the eGPU community and is not related to this particular mod in any way. Following this guide thoroughly will in most cases resolve the Error 43 issue.

Version of this mod for Lenovo Y400/Y500 models is coming soon!
Hey sorry for my bad english and sorry if this question is kinda stupid..
So i have a y500 650m SLI and already flashed the bios.
I thought about getting myself a EXP GDC v8 + 220W Dell power brick and a 1050 Ti from Zotac.
i googled a bit and found some ppl saying that the y500 model 1(? - i don't know which one i have) only has mPCIE x1 - so whatever it is they say it's kinda slow.
So my questions are, do i only have 1x PCIE, how can i find out and to what "powerer degree" of graphics card can i get, that doesnt suffer from power loss then?! Is a 1050Ti ok für that PCIE 1x?
i attached a screen of my nvidia inspector window maybe it helps
