Y510p Ultrabay Graphics card

Totally agree, But given the current situation with prices and availability, I'd say it ain't bad idea to keep it. I almost wanted to pull the trigger on a brand new ryzen mini itx but the gains compared to a fully loaded y510p isn't worth it. I've been thinking to buy a top end haswell chip(like 4940MX) but not sure about the VRMs. I can still live with DDR3L memory just fine.

If you have a y410/510p which is i5 based,it's likely you could only get the 35w tdp i7. Or they will not be turbo as they should be.(for the VRM have a phase missing on these mobos) For i7 based ones, I got a bga to lga converter and a 4980HQ which works perfectly.

@Swung Huang could make me and sell you version of the adapter? There is some tests I would like to do.

 

Thank you

 

Maybe i'm no gonna sell them. I hand-made them. Repeating the process is really frustrating.

Hey not sure if anyone was wondering if I got my setup working again, but if you were here's the skinny.

Turns out that my GTX 780 got toasted by a bad PSU.

Got me a new PSU and joined the Red Team with a Sapphire Nitro+ Pro Special Edition RX580 (It's blue!)

Now it's working waaaay better than my old card- no surprises there.

Also, is it just me or does the Radeon software look miles better than GeForce Experience?

Sorry to hear about your GTX 780!

I like the Radeon software, especially since it doesn't require you to sign up to NVIDIA's telemetry programme.

Is someone able to build and sell the @Swung Huang version of the adapter, the one with the cable? Thank you.

I mean that's frustrate to make these. If you want, you can make your own. I don't think I can mass produce them.

Can you upload the PCB design somewhere @Swung Huang ? I'd like to make a go at this myself, but the pci wiring is something i need to know before hand! :D

Here is bios and excelent manual for Y500. I also have Y500-gt650m. Was very easy to instal. Read meticulously and do it step by step. Now i use rx560 on 2 external and internal displays.

I am astounded by the progress this community has made over the years, really well done! The BIOS mod is juts awesome!

 

I have a favor to ask:

Can someone upload an HD picture of Gerald's board (I want to see how it's wired)

Looking at this image, I just noted that there is a strange connector between the Standard SATA connector and the Ultra Bay connector.

lenovo_y510p_VIQY1_NM-A032_gtx755_gtx750

What is the purpose of this connector? It is used to house another Drive instead of the eGPU?

So, I can use the eGPU and this adapter at the same time?

As I mentioned before, it IS just another standard SATA connector. It is originally for the optical drive. So it is just running at SATA2 speed(3Gbps)

Look at my box design below.That SSD is for that(Actually it won't reach its full speed lol)

And here's a good news for you. I' gonna sell my design(w/ wires and cases)to you. I will start the work if 20 people are going to buy it at least. It'll be priced at 140EUR. Anyone interested? The image about this design is shown above.

Awesome!

I use the laptop both at Work and Home, it would be way better to have the 2nd SSD inside the laptop (instead of carrying a external USB case like I do right now).

Since I'm gonna need both a internal SATA to ODD conversor and your eGPU adapter, there may be a few issues. =/

In the end, What Im gonna need is a SATA+eGPU Combo, and I'm still figuring out how I goona do it without being too complicated.

Maybe something just like @David 'SOAP' Washington did, I don't know.

Share a mod from other man with you guys , Ultrabay Adaptor & Sata3 box.

Finally, it can be locked in, and won't be plug out by accident anymore.



But @Swung Huang I appreciate your willing to make it and sell it. Thank you! :D

Ah, my box have the 2.5' drive bay in it. so... You can put 2drives (1SATA+1ngff or mSATA)+1 external(connected at the ODD SATA) and you can have the drive in your eGPU box(Something like Martis Venus)

I got bad luck, my y510p model 20217 does not have a NGFF/mSata, I just got 1 single SATA port. =/

Just to make sure you understand what I said, I was thinking if it was possible to have the 2nd drive inside the ultrabay slot, and your eGPU Ultrabay adaptor to be connected on the outside, Like this example (just to illustrate), where the mPCI is outside:

GEgo4c7MmfA_unnamed.jpg

Off course, this way it would be required to have a internal PCB with both SATA ODD and PCI-E Ultrabay adapters, and a external cable connector, which I don't know if is possible with your current design.

This way I would kill 3 rabbits with just one shot (2nd internal SSD, eGPU support and a Plug-in adapter)

Thank you mister!

      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.

      Hi folks,
        Greetings from Brazil!  Not sure I'm posting in the right place, but I have a question:  how do I find out the brand and model of my BIOS chip without having to open my laptop?  I can't find this information anywhere.  Been searching for days... I have a Lenovo Ideapad 300-15ISK 80RS (motherboard Paris 5A8).  Thanks a lot for your time and help! I really appreciate it!   Best regards,   JC.

      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.
