(EXP GDC Beast v8.4d mPCI-E + GTX970 + ATX PSU) eGPU project for Lenovo IdeaPad Z710, i7-4700MQ, 16GB RAM, SSD, GeForce GT745MBy damianalex
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.
Nvidia GeForce GT745M
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.
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.
I will describe next step when I get all stuff I need!

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.
I have an XMG u705 with the an í7 4790k, a Geforce GTX 980M 8GB, G-Sync Monitor, 32GB DDR3 RAM, etc. and I am damn annoyed by both the Mainboard Bios and Vbios, because both are the cause for a ton of driver issues under Windows 10. Also I can't use my lately bought Samsung 970 Evo, even though technically there should be nothing preventing it. Heck I was even able to install Windows 10 on it, because the Windows 10 installer detected it, just not the Bios which is logically why I cannot boot from it. -.-
So in search of a solution, I searched the web and found out that there are several mods for both bios made by devs like Prema. Unfortunately some Bios mods I found are heavily outdated, unfinished, ... or not anywhere secure and I couldn't find any location where I could download Prema's Mods for this device, especially not on his Site (just a Subscribe banner there) or his older Wordpress site (errors). There is also nothing here under Downloads/Clevo/P77xZM.
I would be really thankfull if someone could help me.
Hello everyone, I currently use my laptop for school/work and I know I could have gotten a better one but I didn't pay for it was given to me from my job. I recently purchased an HP omen accelerator and put a MSI 1050 ti in it. Knowing this set up wasn't going to work. My laptop is a i7 HP ENVY x360 Convertible-15m-bp0xx, it doesn't have any thunderbolt ports, it has a USB Type-C port with HP Sleep and Charge. I provided the picture, look at my ignorance. Please help. Is there another way around this, I feel like intel could have came up with a substitute by now.
I hope I'm not going to write off-topic;
I own an Acer Predator 15 (G951) notebook, and it never gave me problems before; I've never used the integrated audio jack port because I usually listen to music and other stuff through Bluetooth headphones, but few weeks ago I noticed that putting a jack connector in the jack port only deactivates the sound from the pc speakers, but the headphones don't appear in the "devices" section, and the sound coming out from the headphones is really faint and distorted (only if the system slider of sound is at the maximum level and the sound should be very noisy, when the level is lower I don't hear anything at all). Also, when I put a jack in the microphone jack port of the pc I hear the classic sounds of the jack which touches the pin connectors inside the port, but it doesn't happen with the headphones port. I tried almost everything: I changed a lot of headphones, both phone headphones with a single jack and pc headsets with two jacks (for the headphones and for the microphone) but every time it's the same. I installed and reinstalled a lot of different versions of the audio drivers, both from Acer and the productor (Realtek), and nothing changes, I also tried with Ubuntu and it's the same. What could be the cause, and can the problem be solved without any technic intervention? Anyway the warranty for my pc is still valid, but the assistance should be the very last resource (I should do a backup of everything and format and so on). And, the last question, I flashed a custom VBIOS some time ago, does this compromise the warranty? Should I really reflash the original VBIOS or it's not so likely they're going to check on this?
Thank you all for your attention!
