    weird question to ask but, does Bplus accept warranties and refunds for the PE4c and PE4l???
  2. Hey nando4, What seems to be the problem of sbp? Can you help him out? He seems desperate.

    Dear all, Apologies for my ignorance , I still haven't tried out something like this yet, I have to upgrade ram from 4gb to 16gb (TOLUD is 9FA00000 - FEAFFFFF), change hdd with ssd, then buy the GPU, PSU and PE4C v2.1 ( new philips monitor maybe). I still have to wait until I graduate. I'm also not sure yet whether my laptop has bios whitelist because it's lenovo. I was talking about the Bus interface but still not sure. Where you talking about the number of lanes or links? So to clear things out, can the PE4C v2.1 can do PCIE 2.0 x16 or only 2.0 x1?????? YOU CAN SLAP ME IN THE FACE IF I'M WRONG:smile:

    SORRY FOR BAD ENGLISH Yes! Their cards do perform very well because mostly,The people that are doing this setup is that the CPU of their laptops are very good but the graphics card of their laptop are weak. The graphics card however will not perform and unleash it's full potential but it gives you 60%-80% of their maximum performance, especially if you have an integrated intel hd installed in your laptop ( AS WHAT Tech Inferno Fan said for compression) and you're adapter and port is capable of delivering at Gen2 or higher speeds. The PE4C is capabale of <strike>X16</strike> x1 2.0. It is very important to note that you must have a very strong mobile CPU to run a beast Graphics card. If you are not using it in eGPU, just simply turn it off in laptop. (by ejecting it in devices,maybe) The graphics card(HD 6970) however will lower its power consumption when in idle for 141watts LOL.

    From this installation guide by hwtools http://www.bplus.com.tw/PDF/PE4C%20V2.1_brief_installation.pdf At step 4, connect the 8pin connector to the leftmost as illustrated by the picture, so you can leave the 4pin unconnected. The cards that are not suitable, are those cards that are overkill in gaming or the cards that are too weak for gaming. What I'm trying to tell you is that you're card will perform not as good as performing in a desktop because what you are doing is that you are making a full desktop graphics card work on a laptop and basically, the technology released by these people selling the adapters like the PE4C and EXP GDC is not nearly capable at fully making your graphics card work. PLUS, you're laptops mpcie slot and Express card is also not capable on running like a PCI 3.0 slot on a motherboard where the desktop graphics card is supposed to be. Well expect for the new technology like THUNDEBOLT 3.0!!!!!!! In this site http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/graphics/2010/12/15/ati-radeon-hd-6970-review/10 the 6970 can reach max load of 306watts. SO yah, maybe. I think you'll definitely get unstable performance and lag in gaming. - - - Updated - - - Personally I'd go for the ATX PSU, I'm not kind of a "portable" kind of guy . Choosing the proper ATX PSU, with a little bit of money, will definitely satisfy the needs of you and your GPU. BUt if you're card doesen't require that much of power, I think you can use that kind of portable power supply. When you want to buy a powersupply, make sure it's 12V rail is good enough for GPU and also I advice you to buy a modular one so you can avoid those messy, unused cables.

    First of all, I haven't bought anything yet, I only researched about this eGPU setup. From what Antraz said and based on what I read, you can plug the 24pin connector from the PSU to the adapter and also, I think the "4 pin"(that you and What Antraz said) is actually the 8 pin input connector at the right side of your PE4C v1.2 because the newer version, PE4C v2.1 has it beside the 24 pin input connector. I think that you can power your adapter with only using the 24 pin input connector from the adapter with your PSU's 24 pin cable. You also need to fill what your GPU needs, this means that if your GPU needs two 6 pin power connectors, you need to insert two 6 pin power cables from your PSU so don't only power one socket- DO not leave one socket unconnected and unpowered. I advice you to also provide a good power supply to power what you're GPU needs. Make sure you're dedicated 12v rail of your PSU is good enough to power you're GPU or it will cause problems. Besides this I don't know what's the problem. Might be a faulty slot of the adapter or the mpcie slot

    I think you needed a 24amp 12V rail PSU. Maybe, try to use a more powerful power supply if that works.

    Nice! So how much is the performance increase compared to a desktop computer, was it great? Good work though, my last issue for me is the whitelist from lenovo.

    Hey guys, Do you think that this new PE4C v2.1 is better than PE4L v2.1? Im planning to buy this with pm100c v2.1. Also, Im using a PSU, so in getting this to work, you need to connect the 24 pin from the PSU to 24 pin of the adapter, do you still need the 8pin connector to power up a GTX 980? or you can just power it with the 6 pin + 6 pin directly from the PSU?

    eGPU experiences [version 2.0]

    Hi thanks for the reply trollinteemo and I admire the work of Tech Inferno Fan. My question is that do I really need Setup 1.30??? first off my laptop is a lenovo z510 win 8.1(64 bit) core i7 4702mq gt 740m 64 bit + HD4600 ( dgpu + igpu ) Planning to buy GTX 980 or "GTX 980 ti " (if it comes out) AX860 as my power supply and PE4C v 2.0 4gb of ram and planning to upgrade to 16 gb regarding error 12 I think that my TOLUD size is 2.5 gb ( I saw this in another post and it is identical) the first PCI Express Root Complex is [000000009FA00000 - 00000000FEAFFFFF] Then I can set UMA only in the BIOS utility to only use iGPU, disabling the dGPU Do I need a PCI compaction with the eGPU and the iGPU? Then the last and the one that Im really nervous about. I dont know if this laptop has a bios whitelist. Im gonna have to access to mpcie slot to do an eGPU setup since this laptop has no express card. I don't mind the hassle on opening the base cover of this laptop. Im buying this setup just for the whitelist XD I dont know if this is going to be worth it So Im gonna be using setup 1.30 (if I have a whitelist) instead of modding the BIOS because I dont want to void warranty ( still have 2 years) and brick my laptop. Do you think Im gonna have okay performance PRICE:PERFORMANCE A reply would be appreciated.

    eGPU experiences [version 2.0]

    Hello everyone! I just wanted to join the community after skimming the website for a couple of weeks and plan on making an eGPU setup for the next 2-3 months and want to ask for a few questions. ((((((((I have a Win 8.1(64bit) )))))))))) additional info I want to ask if where can I buy a pcie X16 adapter with a free setup 1.30 or setup 1.x or whatevs XD. I cant seem to find this website "Harmonic Inversion Technology" (HIT) I only see ads and it looks like their website is down. I want to do this so I cant make much of a hassle with a friend because Im asking him to buy this online and I dont want him to buy again Its too much of a hassle ( ITS COMPLICATED SORRY) (Just think of me as I am low on budget) Thanks for any reply
