  1. I guess i should have specified, I wanted to get it working for windows 10 not 8.1. Not sure if that makes a difference for this guide.
  2. Does anyone know how to setup the e-gpu so it uses the internal display?
  3. Dam you beat me to the post! This product pretty looks nice but this is not t the first time this idea has been on kickstarter. Hopefully they are more successful than the bull box.
  4. I am impressed you got the PCIE cable to fit snug in the box while its closed! good job! Ill have to try bending the wires like that! It also seems like this mini 1060 is probably the most ideal GPU for the Akitio Box now.
  5. I suggest installing windows to the drive using bootcamp assistant then.
  6. Try going into the windows side and disabling all other graphics drivers. It should revert to windows basic adapter or something like that. If it requests a restart just reset the system. After you do that change your bootcamp setting to automatically boot into the windows side. This did the trick for me!
  7. How do you boot up your E-GPU? Just hold alt, turn it on, then go into windows?
  8. I haven't done enough tests yet but I will be sure to let you know if i figure it out! I also have been using parallels pior this setup and i think the paraelles drivers may be affecting it but I am not 100% sure.
  9. I finally completed my build using the following parts! Parts: Akitio Box: https://www.amazon.com/Akitio-AMZ-T2PC-TIA-AKTU-Thunder2-PCIe/dp/B00LTAUTHE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1469577455&sr=8-1&keywords=Akitio EVGA 500 PSU: https://www.amazon.com/EVGA-Continuous-Warranty-Supply-100-W1-0500-KR/dp/B00H33SFJU/ref=sr_1_2?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1469577485&sr=1-2&keywords=Evga+psu Molex to Barrel: http://www.ebay.com/itm/ANTRON-CHD04-12BARREL2-5-MOLEX-4-PIN-TO-12V-BARREL-ID-2-5mm-OD-5-5mm-USA-MADE/261920944843 Software Setup: 1) Plugged in all components. 2) Turned on the PSU. (Paper clip trick ) 2) Booted up Windows 10 ( Bootcamp ) 3) Installed latest Nvidia Drivers 4) Reset the system. After completing these steps my macbook recognized the E-GPU. I will post some benchmarks soon! Note: The E-GPU does not always work. It seems to work only after I install the Nvidia drivers. Ill keep you up to date when I learn more. After fooling around with the E-GPU for a day i fixed the stability issues! 1) Disabled all other video drivers. ( Iris Pro Drivers ) 2) Changed bootcamp setting so the target disk was the windows partition instead of the mac partition. Games: 720p: Overwatch All Setting MAXED + 200% Render Scale. 60+ FPS Skyrim All Settings MAXED 60 FPS Pictures: [gallery800x600] [photo=http://i64.tinypic.com/2n0rd6u.jpg][/photo] [/gallery]
  10. Zotac released a new mini 1060 that fits in the Akitio box without bending! ( I think ) This adds to the small list of cards that can fit in the box without modification! https://jet.com/product/ZOTAC-GeForce-GTX-1060-Mini-ZT-P10600A-10L-6GB-GDDR5-Super-Compact/a57e18e6c7f547c8bf1fec890aa7192c
