  1. Anyone have any extra 5.5x2.5 DC Barrel screws? Every place in the US (online) is sold out.
  2. I have a similar set up. Are you just using the PCIE to molex that was included with the PSU? I bought a Corsair SF450 (Modular) and there are about 2 extra molex on one pcie cable. I'm guessing that is okay to plug into the board and the TB board to the PSU?
  3. I'm assuming the paperclip trick can be done directly on the PSU if fully modular, yeah?
  4. Would it be possible to use a Mini ITX card in this case and to be able to fully close it?
  5. Hey guys, I know this has been beaten to death and I've done countless hours of reading back and forth, but am still a bit puzzled. I've built a PC and have always been on PC, but recently switched over to Mac for a new personal project and learning. I purchased a 2015 rMBP with the dGPU (AMD R9 m370x) and am quite disappointed with the performance on casual games (plus the heat is not fun to deal with). I have never built an eGPU and didn't even know it was possible until a few weeks ago and now I'd like to pursue this project. For reference, here's my old PC build: https://pcpartpicker.com/b/9fwV3C#comments Now, for my eGPU build, these are the parts that I'm looking to set it up with. -Akitio Thunderbolt2 -ASUS GTX970 Mini ITX OR Gigabyte GTX970 Mini ITX (Not sure which one to use yet) I'd like to use these as I can place it in the case without having to leave it on the table naked. -PSU. Not sure if a Dell DA2 - 220w would be sufficient, but I'd like it because of the portability of not lugging around an entire PSU when I travel. Not opposed to it if necessary. Now my entire problem with this set up is that I'm not familiar with modding or adapters needed for the PSU portion of it. I'm okay with building a PC, but it's the modding of the electrical part that has prevented me from just purchasing all of these parts and continuing. I'd really like to create a thread with a lot of photos on the build itself, in return, I'm just asking for a bit of help to do it :). Another question, I know with this part below, it would allow the barrel plug to be plugged into the Akitio using an atx PSU. Is the paperclip method still required for using this part?: http://www.ebay.com/itm/2x-molex-to-12v-5-5mm-x-2-5mm-DC-barrel-plug-AKiTiO-Thunder-PSU-adapter-/252426809063? Thanks for the assistance ahead of time. I will be sure to create another thread once this is done!
  6. I'm fairly new to eGPU's, but have built a PC in the past. Does this eGPU set up require that the Dell DA-220 be modded to work with the Akitio Box? I'm considering using a 750Ti as well as it'll fit in the case closed and doesn't require a lot of power. I don't really care to play games in Ultra, but I do like to play games with 60fps with variable graphics settings.
