  1. Hey, thanks for the reply. Actually I have bought 1080 and the performance bonus was quite significant in comparison to GTX670 I have had. With GTX670 I have got 5000 points in demo version of 3DMark, but with GTX1080 I am getting almost 9000 points! With that improvement I am able to play in Resident Evil 7 on max settings! Contrary With GTX670 it was barely playable on lowest settings. I am not care much about error 43, be cause: 1. I have bought GTX1080 due my GTX670 "past away" and with thoughts of switching to TB3 notebook in foreseeable future; 2. When it comes to hardware or\and software my preference is to stick to the rule "If it ain't broke, do not fix it".
  2. Saw how much people viewed the topic, I have found an answer - it is possible, but you forced to use older drivers for that task.
  3. Hello! The title. Currently I am using GTX670 without any problem. I know that there will be almost no performance improvement if I switch to one of the 10xx cards (1070 or 1080 preferable). But still, I want to know if there anyone here can approve or disapprove the possibility such eGPU set-up: X220+ nVidia (1060, 1070 or 1080). P.S. I have modified BIOS so setting up TOLUD will not be a problem and I am on Windows 7 x64 Home Pro. Thanks for your time.
  4. I've got an answer on reddit, https://www.reddit.com/r/thinkpad/comments/5rr9f2/lenovo_thinkpad_t460p_i76700hq_m2_ngff_m_key/
  5. Hello! The "title". I am currently looking for a replacement for my aging X220. Currently T460p with i7-6700HQ (20FWCTO1WW) is the only business model that has HQ i7 and one free m.2 NGFF "M" key port on board (beside SATA SDD or HDD). http://www.notebookcheck.net/Lenovo-ThinkPad-T460p-Core-i7-GeForce-940MX-Notebook-Review.163699.0.html Thanks in advance.
  6. Keywords for microswitches is Kailh silent microswitches.
  7. Hello everyone! Everything is very easy if you have a pair of hands, solderer, flux, desoldering pump, and magical silent switches. All of these you can buy online almost for nothing. Teardown your mouse, change original switches to silent ones. Remember, that one of the three legs is useless (see the marks on the textolite). That is it! No one will be annoyed by clicking sound from no on! Be careful if you use solderer for the first time: 1. It is always good to watch some Youtube videos first; 2. Do not overheat textolite or components. During soldering things, apply heat no more than 3 seconds, otherwise there is a risk to damage textolite or components. Good luck! And happy noiseless gaming!

    I am wondering, what laptops have M2 PCIe x4 that can provide 32Gbps now? We have two people one with Clevo and another with Lenovo Idealpad 700, what else?
  9. No need in any USB\RJ45 etc, just display related ports (HDMI, Display Port) will be more than enough. Additional data ports are just another hit for bandwidth. IMHO.

  11. No, no and no. If you use nVidia I strongly advise to set "Automatic" for Express card port in "Power section", and "Gen2" for PCI Express Root in "Advanced" section, otherwise your eGPU will work on Opt 1.1 speed and not on Opt 1.2, which cuts speed in half.
  12. Yep, I have this problem to, but it does not bother me much, because it is rare. Every time my notebook fall into constant restarts at POST, I just detach battery and put it back again.

    For solution you need to contact Oleh mandriva64(at)gmail.com, cause I only have modified BIOS based on the dump of my computer's BIOS, if you flash it you will half brick you notebook. Oleh has template BIOS-mod, that is suitable for all X220 machines, no SPI programmer needed - just download and flash it. Be careful with advanced menu!
  14. Hi everybody! I am happy to announce that the problem in title has been solwed! After flashing new modified BIOS (whitelist removed, 1866 unlocked and many other things) with advanced menu you can change memory frequency and TOLUD size! No my system runs perfectly with 16Gb on board and powered by eGPU! To find out more, contact Oleh (mandriva64(at)gmail.com)! Hope you will make a donation for his work.
