    BPlus PE4C V3/V2 discussion

    I got a PE4C 3.0 a couple of weeks ago, and I can say that I did not have any issues whatsoever with it so far.

    Did anyone test since? Is the PE4C 3.0 gen2 link stable? As stable as pe4l v2.1b? Thanks.

    eGPU experiences [version 2.0]

    Hello to everyone! I've been reading these forums/threads for a couple of weeks now, and after getting set up an eGPU adapter with a Lenovo T420 (only iGPU), nVidia GTX 460, and 400W corsair PSU, I need to ask a couple of questions.. I am using bios 1.15, and EC set to Gen 1. What I did: - booted to windows - plugged in eGPU - win detected standard VGA, reboot - install nVidia drivers, reboot - windows detects GTX 460, I set it as my primary display on external LCD, iGPU as second display on laptop LCD. After running 3dMark06, I get something above 6000 points (2k+ with iGPU). This seems very low even with Gen1, considering the results I've seen other people posting on this thread with similar CPU/GPU. I would expect the result to be somewhere above 13k, 14k. Am I missing something? I don't use setup1. I also tried powering off the laptop, removing egpu, start laptop, press F8 to get windows startup menu, plug in eGPU, then let windows start. Sometimes I get blue screens by doing this, but when windows boots up, then I still get the same slow results. 3dMark runs on the eGPU, because I see in GPU-z that the GPU load for GTX 460 is 99-100%. If I set the EC to Auto in bios, then I either get BSOD or system freeze, or some other anomaly. That is unstable (Gen2), and I don't know why, I've read other people managing to get it work with 2.0. I have also tested with AMD Firepro V3900, I get similar results. If I set the EC to Auto with the V3900, then I don't get BSOD or system freeze, but the system freezes up from time to time, and the graphics are very very slow. GPU-z shows 2x link in this case. Any ideas, suggestions, on what am I missing or doing wrong? Thank you!
