  1. I wonder if Thunderbolt 1 and 2 equipped notebooks will benefit from this as well?
  2. I think this one is very interesting if it does in fact have a power connector. That would make for a very compact and simple case that can be used with a GTX750Ti or maybe even a 960, without the hassle of external PSU's and modifications.

    Are you able to use that without a powered riser? How does the Zotac card work compared to the recommended EVGA cards regarding optimus?
  4. Cool, thanks for the elaboration!

    Thanks for the reply. Do I need a powered riser, if I use a molex-to-barrel plug adapter to power the SEL? The fans won't spin without a powered riser?

    So is it conclusive to say that this setup will work with a MBPr 2014 iris model, with bootcamp win 8.1 and optimus? EVGA GTX 980 Sonnet SEL 8x to 16x riser External PSU

    What I meant, is if it is possible to just draw a 6-pin pci power cable directly from the solder points on the barrel input somehow, in order to feed the GPU card. Like the picture below. Then you can just use the dell adapter in order to provide enough power, and leave everything else stock (with the exception of the 6-pin cable mod ofc). I'm no electrical engineer, so It may be a far fetched idea.

    Is it possible to draw a molex cable directly from the solder points on the barrel input connector on the board? Coupled with the more powerful Dell adpater instead of the standard one of course.

    That would be great! I'm hoping that the Aikidio is eligible for use with a bigger power brick in order to get the full 75W from the slot. Have you tried to get optimus to work? Shouldn't be a problem according to this thread.

    Don't know if arclord owns one, but it seems call does.

    @author - Any way to get around having to use riser + molex? In other words, can the AKiTiO be modified to supply full power to the slot?

    My bad, posted in wrong thread. Meant to ask the author of this thread: http://forum.techinferno.com/diy-e-gpu-projects/7453-akitio-thunder2-pcie-box-fully-support-macbook-pro-15-iris-model.html But no, I don't own an Akitio

    Has anyone been able to confirm whether or not the slot actually only delivers 25W? Or if that it can be easily modified? (without riser + molex)
