  1. Hi @Tech Inferno Fan, So I come up with some news. I plugged an external screen to my eGPU to do some tests. I used it as the only output (I was not using my laptop screen). It works fine when I use 2D games or for "normal" use. But when I try to use something more demending as the 3DMark softwares or a game, it is not the same. In game (or with 3DMark) the eGPU makes some weird noises (cracklings with a high pitch) and some "scanlines" appears sometime on the screen (it looks like noise but making "waves" on the screen). After a while, the cracklings gat a lower pitch (it really sounds a bit like a thin paper stuck in a fan (but there is not ^^) ) and short after, the computer crashes. I don't know if you ever faced that kind of problem. I don"t think it comes from myexternal power supply, it can provide up to 550W which is more than enought. I tried other configurations with your software and the one I gave in the first post is the only one working. I ran out of ideas, so any help would be appreciated Thanks a lot.
  2. Thank you for your answer. That's what I feared actually. And does that mean that even if i use win8, and disable the dGPU, it would be the same (i would not be able tu use the internal monitor) ? I'm asking that because I've a tiny desk and it would be hard to put an extra monitor on it ^^ Thank you
  3. Hi @Tech Inferno Fan, First of all, thank you for creating this thread. I was running benches before giving further details. And I'm quite disapointed with the results. It seems like the eGPU is not taken into account. I did not bench my dGPU and I cannot stress it anymore so I'm not able to compare with and without the eGPU, but I'm pretty sure that without the eGPU it would give the same result. This is the ling to the 3DMark11 result. Coul you tell me if you agree with me seeing it please ? Do you know how I could see if the eGPU is used for the internal display ? I tryed CAM and NVidia System monitor and both tell me that the eGPU has no activity Am I missing something or do I have to use an external screen to use the eGPU ? If it is the case, if I use windows 8+, I should be able to boot without the dGPU and use only the eGPU for internal use, right ? Thank you for your help.
  4. This is my laptop configuration : PC : Clevo P170HM OS : Windows 7 x64 Pro CPU : Intel Core i7 2820QM 2.30 GHz GPU : NVidia GTX 580M RAM : 16Go DDR3 And now, here is my eGPU hardware setup : PCI-E adaptor : EXP GDC Beast mini PCI-E version Power : 550W external power supply eGPU : Gainward NVidia GTX 970 My problem is that I've got a code 12 error when i'm on windows. I cannot disable my internal GPU and choose another one with my BIOS configuration neither. EDIT : I finally got Setup 1.30 worked with the folowing : * endpoint = 3.87GB * scope = dGPU * closeunusedbridges = on * ignore = NONE I had the idea to try this one in priority when you said that I had enough pcie space. Then I thought that compressing just the dGpu would release the missing resources for the eGPU. My other failed attempts in the spoiler. So I bought eGPU setup 1.30 in order to solve this but all my attempts are not really conclusive for now. Here is the setup that gives the best result for now : I did all the steps befor the compactons and I still have the code 12. Then I tryed the two combinations : *endpoint = 4G *scope = All except SATA+USB+... *closeunusedbridges = on *ignore = none Result : windows boot freezes (the boot animation starts and then it freeses (no response) *endpoint = 4G *scope = dGpu + eGPU *closeunusedbridges = on *ignore = none Result : windows boot but still got the code 12. Thank you again

    eGPU experiences [version 2.0]

    Thank you for your answer. In fact, disabling the dGPu was to release the resources for the eGPUin order to resolve the code 12. But if you say that using windows 8 would simplify the process, I will probably go back to it. Anyway, here is the diag you requested. Thank you for your help

    eGPU experiences [version 2.0]

    Hello everyone, I'm comming to you as I've got some troubles to get my eGPU setup working. This is my laptop configuration : PC : Clevo P170HM OS : Windows 7 x64 Pro CPU : Intel Core i7 2820QM 2.30 GHz GPU : NVidia GTX 580M RAM : 16Go DDR3 And now, here is my eGPU hardware setup : PCI-E adaptor : EXP GDC Beast mini PCI-E version Power : 550W external power supply eGPU : Gainward NVidia GTX 970 My problem is that I've got a code 12 error when i'm on windows. I cannot disable my internal GPU and choose another one with my BIOS configuration neither. So I bought eGPU setup 1.30 in order to solve this but all my attempts are not really conclusive for now. Here is the setup that gives the best result for now : With this setup, I manage to get 0.5S of boot animation but then everything goes dark. Windows is running but nothing is displayed. I don't know if it is a setup problem or a driver problem (even if I Installed the eGPU drivers). I'm hoping that you'll help me to solve this problem. Thank you ! P.S. : Both swithes ont the beast adaptor are on the off position. I tried other switch configurations but the laptop won't even boot.
