Great news, my version 3 is working stable :) Now I want to do same case for it.
I finished yesterday in the night so I only tested Apex legends for 1 hour. See screenshot. (80-90 FPS stable) Ultra settings (2560x1080). 
GPU: RX 580 8GB NITRO+

Hello!
Good luck in the development. Looking forward to buy an adapter.

here all credit to @geralt

Thanks. 

 

Parts are obsolete. :(

 

I saw the other user has its own version. I wish they share it.

I use the same parts as  gerald. If you search deep there are still some shops where it is possible to buy it.

Having the cable replaced and got a new design on laptop side.

Now running @ PCIe 3.0 x8 stable.

(Will get these things for sale, but not now.

Hi new member here, been following this forum for a bit, hopping not to sound rude, is there any news on this adapter?

I want to buy an adapter that will work with the Y500 (BIOS mod from High_Voltagenvidia-error43-fixer)

I too want to know, that doesnt needs the ultrabay socket part right? I can't find that one anywhere

 

BTW probably a dumb question but what is the bandwidth difference between M.2 and ultrabay? I heard that people using M.2 eGPU adapters see a loss of <10% compared to PCIe x16 which TBH is something I can live with

@Drozof You can only use M.2 for PCIe if the socket supports NVMe. This laptop supports M.2 SATA only, therefore your only option other than using the adapter would be plugging a PCIe x1 cable instead of the wireless card.

And speaking of the adapters, I would say that getting them made sounds quite realistic to me. The conditions are favourable.  We just need someone willing to invest their time and money to get this done.

 

Speaking of PCB design, I'm pretty sure @gerald, @Swung Huang or @Zakyn will be more than happy to share, should we get this going.

 

Let's say there's 50 people willing to buy an adapter for $100.

 

One can get 50pcs 4-layer 10x15cm impedance-rated PCBs from JLCPCB for just above $100 + shipping + import tax. Let shipping + tax be like $50.

The connector is currently $6.14/piece with free international shipping here (correct me if this is a wrong connector). Other components (PCIe slot, PSU connector, SMDs), let's say another $10 per adapter.

 

We're getting about $1000 in expenses + manual labor with a perspective of earning $5000.

 

Good question now is how many people would actually be ready to buy one right now, considering the Y510p is already a really old machine?

Not many, but still a few of them. I saw them here and at eGPU forum (after i and intruder share result and Y500 and Y510p at top list).

 

People which want to buy this adapter should accept that:

 

1. This adapter is temporary solution of a problem. 4 Core CPUs of Y500 and Y510p will gone soon in history;

2. You still must buy PSU (probably good one to be able transfer it later in Desktop and don't buy new one, because you new system more power hungry then just one eGPU);

3. And your main problem - GPU. So far only GTX 10XX was tested, no data about RTX 20XX cards.

 

I may support development of new adapter, but i have no skills in soldering at all. I can't assemble it and properly test it, only compare results with original adapter on one machine - Lenovo Y500 with GTX 1080 Ti.

 

Also, i think design must be changed, since heavy cooling system of some cards don't allow it to stay vertically - need to add support.

@Bronius First of all, find where to buy an ultrabay connector, and buy one. Then, order a PCB from China (not very expensive). Get all the rest from Ebay or Aliexpress and solder everything together!

 

@rusTORK You've actually made a really good point here about 1600/2000-series cards. Has anyone tested any of them?

RTX2000series is confirmed to work. I have got a 2070 working on my machine. And I’m trying to get it work with internal display(using Looking glass or sth like framebuffer copying.

 I’m gonna assign my y400 for campus dorm gaming machine lol.

I’m still not working on it tho. I’ll be back in two month.(NCEE is starting from 6/8 8:00 in CST/UTC+8)

Wish the god bless me!

Also I have two versions of adapter. One is the board (the one similar to the Gerald one),and with an arcylic supporting to hold the GPU in place. You can also purchase the casing if you already have gerald’s board.

Another one is cable-case model. There’s an module plugged in the laptop and running a cable to the box where GPU is in. Then you can put your GPU aside and won’t have a GPU in the way!

Both version is planned to be shipped in the mid June.(If there’s nothing else preventing me to do this :(

      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.

      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.

      I am planning to get this Charger (170w 20v 8.5a) - https://www.amazon.in/Lenovo-ThinkPad-4X20E50574-170W-AC/dp/B00MLTQ99Y
      &
      the Adapter - https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32975526334.html?spm=a2g0o.productlist.0.0.27cb747e6TEc28&algo_pvid=a7db42d0-97cb-4a37-be7a-d19c44bddf73&algo_expid=a7db42d0-97cb-4a37-be7a-d19c44bddf73-0&btsid=8d6ee0f9-08e9-4474-b63b-cc751403b4c7&ws_ab_test=searchweb0_0,searchweb201602_,searchweb201603_60
       
      Will this combination work to run Both GT755m of Y510p?
       
       
      Thanks
