  1. If you're able to get it to work anytime soon, or if you just work on it, keep us updated! Sent from my X9076 using Tapatalk
  2. Great news! I found a company that sells CPU Interposers, problem is I don't think they sell individually, only in bulk. I emailed them, and I was told that the email could not be delivered. Anyway, without further ado, here's the website: www.eztest.com.tw/page1.aspx?no=100101026141909919 Sent from my X9076 using Tapatalk
  3. Yes, that would be amazing, but very unlikely to happen because most consumers don't even know what PCIe even is [emoji14] Sent from my X9076 using Tapatalk
  4. Actually, I'm (thankfully) wrong. My laptop's CPU is FCPGA988. This means that it's an actual socket, rather than the Ball Grid Array that I thought it was Sent from my X9076 using Tapatalk
  5. Whatever works. Apparently, however, my laptop's CPU has a BGA socket, so I'm going to have to find one that is the same. The one you were using is also BGA, but I want able to find it. Time to eBay Sent from my X9076 using Tapatalk
  6. That's interesting. Thanks for the info, although I don't really take notes in lectures. I've always hated how companies find give you model numbers, but give you their part numbers. I don't even think they manufactured it the piece. Although I could be wrong. Anyway, I'll think about contacting then about that motherboard, it really seems interesting! Shame I don't have a lot of time to play around with it. Sent from my X9076 using Tapatalk
  7. Damn, you're lucky! I'm transferring to a primarily engineering university next year, so they might have something like that, but I'm limited to my soldering skills at the moment. Do you mind telling me the model number of that motherboard? Sent from my X9076 using Tapatalk
  8. Umm, for $15 I'll buy several motherboard's just to practice! Seriously. Then when I feel like I can do it, I'll do it for my actual motherboard. Sent from my X9076 using Tapatalk
  9. That's actually what I meant, but I may have miscommunicated. My laptop's mobo costs about $150, so you're lucky [emoji14] What laptop do you have? Sent from my X9076 using Tapatalk
  10. That sounds really fun, hahaha, I don't know if I'd ever do it, though [emoji14] However, if I was you, I'd buy a motherboard for my laptop's specific model off of eBay, and try to make a PCIe connection from the dGPU of the new motherboard. That way, if anything gets screwed up, the actual laptop will still be fine. They usually cost between $100 - $250, but you pay for safety [emoji14] Sent from my X9076 using Tapatalk
  11. CRAP, did you try to solder directly onto your CPU port?! Sent from my X9076 using Tapatalk
  12. Oh, I see. I don't know why I didn't think of that. Personally, I initially got interested in eGPUs because of cost efficiency. However, since I am a computer engineering major, the fun of it has kept me going, haha. I think I would probably build a desktop before buying a TB3-equipped notebook, simply because I could make it much more powerful. However, if BPlus says it's possible to make that adapter, do you think space would be an issue or not?
  13. Also, don't you think it would be easier for those with dGPUs, to desolder their GPUs, and make an adapter GPU? For example, a dGPU blank that has a PCIe x16 3.0 riser coming from it? This should be feasible since the dGPU itself is connected to the CPU with that connection, and so you should be able to salvage in that way.
  14. Based on that, I would assume that mobile CPUs are detachable? That seems to be supported by the fact that online suppliers sell laptop M/B's without their CPUs. Having a CPU - PCIe x8 adapter seems like a pretty great, easily marketable idea! However, I can't help but think that the adapter being fitted in between the CPU and the M/B would raise the height of the CPU, which would be an issue because of the cooling system that's above the CPU. Do you think this could be fixed by simply bending the tubes, or something else? I'm really looking forward to this! When do you think they might respond, in a few days/weeks? Thanks!
  15. I'm in the same situation. How would I go about doing that?
