I have designed an adapter for the ultrabay slot to plug desktop graphic cards into a Y510p.
The BIOS starts with "Unauthorized Slave vga ...". Need help for a new BIOS without PCIe check on Ultrabay.
Usually i don't share information for personal use, but i can make an exception.
There is company called- Supermicro and they have pretty a lot diffirent motherboards. I founded one interesting motherboard for Lenovo Y500 - X9SCV-QV4.
It's have got:
1. Intel 2nd or 3rd Gen Core i7/i5/i3 supported; socket G2 (rPGA 988B);
2. Up to 16GB DDR3 1066/1333/1600MHz Non-ECC SODIMMs;
3. 1x PCI-E 3.0 x16 slot (Gen 3 with 3rd generation CPU);
4. LVDS connector onboard (may be tricky to connect laptop display, need compare pins).
It's more expensive, but an alternative. Also, i have no idea about GTX 10xx series support and desktop CPU heatsink support. Need to chat a lot with Supermicro support, but it's real product.
I got respond from Supermicro and this motherboard don't support i7-3630QM since Supermicro used Intel QM67 chipset.
Options from ASRock:
ASRock IMB-170-V (for Lenovo Y500, PCI-E x16 Gen 2, but maybe will work as Gen 3?)
ASRock IMB-180 (for lenovo Y510p, but no data about PCI-E x16 generation at all).
