  1. Yea, I took it apart and cleaned it last week, cant seem to lower the temps. Maybe ill try it with my lenovo laptop and see if i get better results
  2. @Tech Inferno Fan Sure thing, just got the results but I realised that the Acer Aspire 5755G has overheating issues... that would explain the terrible scores, also I noticed in HWMonitor my temperature is always 80 degrees, that aside everything is fine in performance manager Web result: 3DMark 11 [720p] Web result: 3DMark 11 [1080p] Web result: 3DMark Vantage [720p] Web result: 3DMark Vantage [1080p] 3DMark 06 [720p] 3DMark 06 [1080p] Notice how in 3DMark 06, the 1080p result is higher than 720p... interesting
  3. hi guys, just wondering if its possible if i can turn on my computer and boot into windows using egpu automatically without going into setup 1.30... Or is that impossible
  4. ok suddenly getting error 43... i dont know what happened... it says unconfigured display adapter found device not accessible in the show state.. Edit: Fixed the error by reformatting my computer as a last resort
  5. Sure, ill do some 3dmark 11 tomorrow and see. What scores you recon i should expect?
  6. Acer Aspire 5755G Processor: Intel HM67 Express Quad Core i7 2630QM 2GHz Base, 2.9GHz Turbo RAM: 8GB iGPU: Intel HD Graphics 3000 dGPU: NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M 2GB eGPU: Gainward NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 2GB Guide: 1. Remove dGPU nvidia drivers 2. Boot into BIOS and change graphics mode to integrated graphics 3. Install Setup 1.30 4. Insert the EXP GDC v7/6 into the mPCIe port and connect the power etc 4. Boot into Setup 1.30 and select the third option 5. Change to chain loader from mbr2 to mbr, initialize egpu and run pci compaction with iGPU and eGPU 6. Save then reboot 7. Boot into OS EXP GDC V7 + enclosure pics + comments in spoiler This is everything that is included in the package without retail packaging. (Enclosure and ATX power cable was an additional purchase) This is my current setup. For now I'm using an ATX until my Dell DA-2 arrives. As you can see here the light in the EXP GDC v7 is green
  7. Sure, ill take the pics now before i clean everything up
  8. awesome card man! Are you using thunderbolt? If only my wallet wasnt crying, id be a proud owner of a 970
  9. Thanks so much man, everything is all good now also for people getting the metal enclosure for the exp gdc v7, its good but you need to bend it into shape and also they only gave me 5 screws... But its alright, i found some more from a broken pc. The enclosure isnt that fashionable, looking to paint it soon. Also its insanely heavy! Other than that its pretty average. Also you can add a fan to increase airflow, which is nice. One more thing, the exp gdc v7 gives you an extention cable for extending the power to your graphics card, but you should need it. Let me know if you want pics, i can upload them if you like.
  10. thanks man, can you be a bit more specific, it came up with this blue cmd like screen D: it was very intimidating ahahah
  11. omg it works, thanks guys. so basically it was a dud card. I swapped it out with a brand new 660 and it works fine but i have to go through configuring everything in egpu setup D: is there a way to save the configuration so i dont need to configure it every single time?
  12. thanks buddy, everything works except i cant output to my monitor o.O in the device manager it list my card as gtx 650, thats good but theres an exclamation next to it... what does it mean?
  13. hi guys, just got my exp gdc v7.0 but somehow i cant get it to detect my gpu :< any tips?
  14. Thanks man! Yea i also been trying to find out too to determine which port is what. Its so confusing this is just an assumption but look up how to find how big your tolud size is and usually the first one that is A00000 or something like that should be your first port and so on, by the way that was just an example, yours might be different. From the detail, i think you can look up what port is using what. Sorry i cant remember exactly on how find your tolud size
  15. Im pretty sure in theory you can just disable the dgpu itself and still be able to get optimus? Lol, my exp gdc is coming tomorrow ill let you know if it works. Either way if it does or doesnt its best to install setup 1.30
  16. Thanks for the reply! Awesome looks like ill be getting the DA-2 Just want to be 100% sure, is this the correct adapter for the exp gdc v7.0? Don't want to have to return it if its the wrong type, as I live in Australia and shipping will be insane XD
  17. Hi guys! Just preparing for my eGPU set up on my Acer 5755g, but not sure what power I should use... My card is a Gainward GTX 660, but it says I need a 450 watt PSU... Here is the issue, when I look up on the PSU calculator it says I need only 229 watts... So which PSU should I use? A 500 watt ATX or the Dell DA-2? Thanks in advanced! <3
  18. Hi guys, still deciding on my which gpu to get for my i7 2nd gen laptop running @ 2ghz... Will a gtx 760 or gtx 660 be a bottleneck for my system?? the 660 should be fine right? thanks in advanced
  19. hey guys, correct me if I'm wrong, but the v7.0 exp gdc is better than the version 6 right? I mean, its got to be as it is a generation 3 pcie compared to the v6.0 generation 2... so basically the only thing that flops on the v7.0 is the placement of the power and that the usb has been removed, am I correct?
  20. bruh, id recomend the evga 750 ti sc because it doesnt require extra juice, and it has a low tpd
  21. Just a quick question, what is everyone refering to when they mention "setup 1.x"?
