  1. If you use Quadro cards, Install Quadro Drivers. It will 'unlock' Graphic API & Compute API on Quadro Cards. Download Quadro Mobile drivers from Nvidia Site or from your card's manufacturer site. Uninstal your existing GTX driver with DDU. Disable Windows Hardware Autoupdate Driver. Defer upgrades Win 10 Windows Update, or simply disconnect internet connection. Nv Quadro chip Quadro Series: Fermi Quadro K Series: Kepler Quadro M Series: Maxwell Sorry i havent test Akitio T2 with Quadro cards. I only use EXP GDC Beast. I use Dell 220W for Quadro 4000 with 6 pin auxiliary power cable direct from eGPU. And i use ATX 500W PSU for Quadro 6000, 6pin & 6+2pin from PSU. With this config i don't have Power issues. Hope this helps
  2. yeah the mpcie cable is not stable. so does mine. it also make my gpu bios corrupted, thats why it has Error 43. I almost baked & trash my Quadro cards due to frustrations. I'm able to solve it only by using ExpressCard cable and Flash my gpu to factory BIOS. here's my post: https://www.techinferno.com/index.php?/forums/topic/10230-solved-quadro-gpu-w520-expresscard-exp-gdc-v8-not-working-error-43/
  3. Did you managed to solved Error 43? Got mine solved. Turns out my gpu BIOS is corrupted. Check out my post here: Hope this helps
  4. I've managed to get my eGPU Quadro 4000 work again! It turns out all this time I didn't really bricked the graphic card, but the mini PCIe version is not stable. My NVIDIA Quadro BIOS is corrupted, make it's fan running on Max speed all time and this is why our good friend Error 43 appears. Now i use ExpressCard signal cable to bring it back to life. More securely connected and stable. If you having Error 43, it is good to check the graphic card in other Computer first if possible. Make sure the card was fine. If it's also not working, download nvflash and run it on Command Prompt. Here's the step i did: Basic VBIOS Flash guide using nvflash within Windows 10 (not by a Bootable DOS USB): IMPORTANT: make sure you connect your card on eGPU, and Discrete Graphic+Optimus is DISABLED, It shown on Device Manager, and Latest Driver is installed properly) Download nvflash https://www.techpowerup.com/downloads/2709/nvflash-5-292-0-for-windows (older cards might need older version of nvflash, check your card's manufacture date), i use nvflash_5.196.0.1-win (2012) Extract the files into your convenient directory, since we need to type in the dir on CMD. I suggest put it on Desktop Download your VBIOS for your card. it has to be *.rom file, put it in your nvflash directory. The largest GPU BIOS Database is Techpowerup https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/ Run CMD command prompt from Win+R or as Administrator to avoid Windows 10 autoclose Command Prompt like when using Shift+Right Click on Explorer > Open command window here Type in your nvflash directory, (just type the first letter then hit TAB to autocomplete) type: then hit Enter If it asked to choose which Adapter, it means your Discrete Graphic still Enabled from BIOS. If you doing it correctly and your card's BIOS / EEPROM is corrupted, the command will show you this: So go figure, your VBIOS is corrupted, this might cause Error 43 as well. Next, we need to Flash your VBIOS now. It's all up to you if you want to Flash it with Stock BIOS or tweaked. But in my Quadro case, the graphic card's manufacture BIOS is the one that's worked, it's from Leadtek. Been tried BIOS from NVIDA stock, PNY, HP, all are useless. back to CMD and still in your nvflash directory, or you can just hit Up/Down keyboard arrow to view your last command. type: you should hear Beeping/chirp sound lets begin flashing: (at this point, do this at your own risk) type: if it show ID mismatch, you should add -6 to forced it and proceed (notice that mine has FFBF, FFFF thats because the EEPROM is corrupted) type: Wait for it... don't do anything otherwise you'll brick your card. Make sure your laptop run on Power adapter. The moment of truth, If it's done, it will show you this: Hold your celebration. Your card is back to life though, but we need to Shutdown and Power Cycle everything. Exit CMD, and Shutdown your laptop, Unplug Laptop Power adapter / battery if possible, and unplug eGPU PSU / Power Adapter. This is very important. We need the card to clear all cache remains in it's board. This method also applied to Desktop PC / workstations as well when you're flashing / updating GPU firmware. Put back eGPU & Laptop powers and start your laptop. If you doing it right, you can hear the graphic card's fan now spin normally, but at Windows boot logo, it will spin faster for 3-4 sec. It means your graphic card is alive, healthy, detected by the system, and the Driver kicks in. Check on Device Manager Check Driver version in Nvidia Control Panel if needed. Use Driver directly from NVIDIA site not from your Laptop OEM driver, Disable Windows Hardware driver auto update Let's celebrate This basic method is worked for me, but might not worked for you. The idea is to check your card's BIOS if you have Error 43. Install & re-install driver might also caused issues. Most people have Error 43 was only focusing on the config, eGPU brand, Driver version, OS version, etc, etc.. Also, you still can flash your VBIOS within Windows 10, it easier, not need specific DOS file, and HP formatting tools. Though using USB Bootable DOS is highly recommended. There are many eGPU and GPU BIOS Mod experts in this great forum, you can always refer to them. But most of the guides were back from 2010 or using Windows 7. I hope this helps for those who struggling with Error 43 and Basic VBIOS flash on eGPU config. I use Leadtek Quadro 4000 for Mac by the way.. It's obviously an old card, but it's still worth to use, so please don't compare it with recent GTX cards . It's CUDA working as expected on Adobe, Davinci Resolve, etc. I'm not intended to use it as for Gaming. Period. Last but not least, I can sleep well now, so here's the glory i have: I planned to put a small laptop USB cooling fan (two fans) and plug it to the EXP GDC USB port. Cheers!
  5. what laptop did you use? You should set Integrated Graphic on BIOS Display options and disable OS Optimus detection. So, it should be only 2 Display Adapters shown in Device Manager: Intel integrated, and Nvidia eGPU. How about in Boot screen, did it also appears on eGPU/TV?
  6. 1. Clevo P775DM2-G: 2. RAZER 3. DELL ALIENWARE 4. MSI 5. HP? http://www.tbreak.com/nvidia-gtx-1080m-specifications-pop-up-and-its-nothing-short-of-a-beast https://tech4gamers.com/clevo-p775dm2-g-gaming-laptop-equipped-with-gtx-1080m/
  7. i love the enclosure design. no cables are visible.
  8. yeah our good old friend Error 43 is famous. it has to do with Driver+ OS conflict. I suggest you should revert back from the last time it's working & detected. And if possible try your 960 on other Desktop PC if any or use other pcie card on your egpu, just to make sure your 960 is fine. Got my both Quadro 4000 and Q6000 bricked with Error 43 and subsys/subvendor showing (Unknown) FFFF on GPUZ. before it was bricked, i installed Win 8 legacy driver on my Win 10 from NVIDIA site. working flawlessly until i plugged my external monitor to it and my Lenovo W520 shutdown itself and here comes the error 43. If i'm not mistaken, Optimus was build for Windows 7. And Windows 10 has it's own Hybrid feature. so make sure after using DDU you disconnect from Internet or disable windows driver autoupdate. Are you using EXP GDC or what? Have you tried to switch the PTD to 7s? Better to Shutdown and power cycle both your laptop & egpu (unplugged power) and wait 5sec to make it's cache cleared before powering up again Disable all the Power Managements on BIOS make it run at Maximum Performance. I'm 100% sure all these eGPU will work flawlessly on Win 7. But it's impossible to downgrade my OEM Lenovo W520 legitimately. good luck
  9. Here's some pics of my setup: I've managed to make my AJA Kona 3G 4K video I/O card work again with ExpressCard cable and DELL 220W. It is more stable than the mPCIe. I assume the mPCIe cable that makes my both Quadro cards bricked
  10. Hi, I would like to share my eGPU experience with EXP GDC V8 ExpressCard on my W520, Quad core i7, 12GB RAM, Quadro 2000M 2GB dedicated VRAM, Windows 10 Pro 64bit. last month after weeks of fails and errors, (specially the famous Error 43), i finally got my EXP GDC running using mPCIE version with NVIDIA Quadro 4000 for Mac (yes, for Mac!) I make it works by setting the PTD switch to 7s. But by the time Windows successfully detect my Q4000 i straught away hook up my external monitor (EIZO CG245W 24-inch) to my eGPU, then the system blinks, i assume it detect a display signal. but it wasnt. And my W520 suddenly shutdown. And i can not make it work again. Even after hundreds of time reinstall-uninstall NVIDIA Drivers with DDU it wont make it work again. So, at this point i switch the GPU to my Quadro 6000 6GB GDDR5, and repeat the last success process. Nothing happened. Our good friend Error 43 back again and stay there forever. In my desperate time, i finally ordered the ExpressCard signal Cable. While waiting it's enroute somewhere in China, I test the EXP GDC with my AJA Kona 3G 4K I/O Video Capture Card, and hey it's working! i can do Edit & Realtime Preview 4K RAW video files thru the card flawlessly, It utilized the card's hardware encoding, (4K RAW files from ARRI & RED Camera) as well as output 16-Channels 192KHz Audio signal from my DAW. (no additional 6-pin power required for this card) Then i test my both Quadro 4000 & Quadro 6000 GPU back to my HP Z800 workstation, guess what? They're both bricked! It received power, but system cannot boot up. Beeping. means GPU is faulty. The next day, my AJA Kona 3G card also bricked! Today the ExpressCard signal cable finally arrived along with my 6-pin + 6+2 pin, but again, when i use the ExpressCard setup it doesnt do anything. No power comes in to the EXP GDC. My 500W ATX PSU is running though, but the LED indicator on the EXP GDC not lit. i set the slot to Generation 1 power mode in BIOS. So, I've tried both mPCIe and ExpressCard on W520 with nothing but frustrations. Did i miss anything here? I appreciate any workaround on this. Since i've never found any eGPU setup with W520 anywhere in the net. specially using ExpressCard & a High end Quadro GPU. Here's my last config that i've managed to make Q4000 work: mPCIe method: BIOS: Whitelist latest BIOS 1.42 Power Management: Both for Processor and PCI set to Disabled Display Mode: Integrated Graphic OS Detection Mode for Optimus Graphic: Disabled PXE Boot and all Network Boot options including PCI LAN Boot order : Disabled Win 10: Device Manager: System Detect eGPU, Error 43 Uninstall NVIDIA Driver with DDU (safe mode) Reboot Check BIOS first, usually it will set back the Display to Optimus Mode, i Let it Boot in OPTIMUS MODE Make sure Graphic Card(s) is detected in Device Manager as a 'Basic Microsoft Display Adapter' Install Quadro driver for both Discreet Graphic & eGPU Reboot to BIOS Display Mode: Integrated Graphic OS Detection Mode for Optimus Graphic: Disabled Quadro 4000 for Mac successfully detected in Device Manager. Plug my external monitor to eGPU GPU Bricked ExpressCard Method: Same as mPCIe method ExpressCard Power mode: Generation 1 Nothing happened eGPU setup: EXP GDC Beast V8 500W ATX PSU DELL 220W Power Adapter (backup for small cards) PCIe 6pin+6pin+2 auxiliary power cable (backup spare) ExpressCard Signal Cable mPCIe Signal Cable [IMPORTANT NOTE]: You will know your graphic card is working fine when you power on your laptop, normally all Quadro cards fan spin at normal speed, then it will spin faster/accelerate for 3-4 sec at Windows logo, means the system & OS detects your card then it back to normal fan speed. During the setup, i often get my Quadro 4000 fan spin so freakin fast. Faster then the POST boot init, but then back to normal speed Bricked Quadro Graphic Card: Quadro 4000 Fan spin fast forever, while Quadro 6000 stays low speed. Thanks a lot!
  11. @jfraser i'm not interested for gaming on mac. My mac pro 2013 is suck for 3D applications/VFX. I use HP Z840 workstation with Dual Quadro M6000 24GB GDDR5 for VFX and will test the Quadro on a MacPro eGPU instead. I'm sure there will be bandwidth bottleneck for it's CUDA parallel processing
  12. very impressive work and results. and i like your detailed information on every single aspect. You think it will performed well with Quadro cards? I'm more into visual fx, compositing & 3D stuff. so i use eGPU for it, Looking for a rendering time speed boost & in-app interactions as well as encoding. I don't think Benchmarks will answer my questions . No one seems to post eGPU with a Quadro cards. I have test mPCIE version EXP GDC Beast v8 with Quadro 6000 & 4000 on a Lenovo W520 before finally bricked them.
  13. Cool. post it here if the enclosure finished I'm still designing my enclosure. It'll be a 2 slots size acrylic case with a 12mm fan and SFF psu. I'm lack of electrical knowledge i need it to modified it's wirings
  14. @t00h0t This from Resolve with GTX 760 on a Hackintosh Yosemite. This from After Effects CS. the GPU is unsupported. This only available on Adobe PPro & AE CS6: Here are the steps: Download the instructions here: CreatorUp-TechTips-Cuda Download the latest version of CUDA drivers here: http://www.nvidia.com/object/mac-driver-archive.html Install CUDA drivers and make sure it is running on your system preference. Run GPUSniffer (/Applications/Adobe\ Premiere\ Pro\ CS6/Adobe\ Premiere\ Pro\ CS6.app/Contents/GPUSniffer.app/Contents/MacOS/GPUSniffer) Edit CUDA Supports Text file in both Premiere CS6 and After Effects CS6 (/Applications/Adobe\ Premiere\ Pro\ CS6/Adobe\ Premiere\ Pro\ CS6.app/Contents/cuda_supported_cards.txt) Open Adobe Premiere and After Effects and enjoy your new lighting speed rendering time. For Adobe PPro & AE CC 2015 it should be able to use any recent CUDA supported cards. To check: Open Terminal and Run /Applications/Adobe\ After\ Effects\ CC\ 2015/Adobe\ After\ Effects\ CC\ 2015.app/Contents/AEGPUSniffer.app/Contents/MacOS/AEGPUSniffer You should see your card details and below line: (mine is running on Intel Iris Pro, so it's Failed) dlopen "/usr/local/cuda/lib/libcuda.dylib" failed! dlopen "/usr/local/cuda/lib/libcuda.dylib" failed! If not, Check the latest version of CUDA drivers here: http://www.nvidia.com/object/mac-driver-archive.html But i assume you've flash your VBIOS and installed the quick fix for CUDA below Just hope it's not conflict it's original CUDA core feature. So try to install the closest match Nvida CUDA Driver http://www.nvidia.com/object/mac-driver-archive.html with the one shown here: https://www.techpowerup.com/gpudb/b3226/galax-gtx-970-oc-silent-infinity-black-edition Do this with your own risk What version is your Davinci Resolve? Here's for your references:
  15. @t00h0t oh yes i forgot the iMac 5K comes with R9 Maybe it's conflict with AMD driver? Since AMD did not have CUDA. And most Color Grading / VFX strongly recommend to use Quadro cards instead of GeForce due to it's specific Driver / firmware. Though both cards has CUDA. Is there any options on the script to download specific driver we want? Try to install lower branch version perhaps. I just checked with my friend, he managed to get his GTX 760 CUDA on his Yosemite Hackintosh, Davinci Resolve. I know its totally different case, but still, it was a PC GPU that successfully run on a Mac without flashing the card's BIOS. so i assume that macOS Sierra has a different OS architecture As you can see on the 2nd pic that the GTX card was unsupported for CUDA processing in After Effects. But we can modified this by editing the gpulist textfile and put your card's model to forced it available inside AE.
  16. @t00h0t I thought all Nvidia drivers are embedded on macOS installers? Have you tried to download a separate Cuda driver? What is your dGPU? Did Resolve/Adobe able to detect your dGPU CUDA? Or maybe the Cuda compute features has not been unlocked in Sierra Beta
  17. Did you use DELL 220W or ATX PSU? Don't ever tried to power up if the card needs more power and you dont have the 6pin cable I end up bricked my Quadro 6000 AND Quadro 4000 without 6pin & 6+2pin. As the cable still enroute somewhere in china. I purchased Beast V8 with Dell 220W only, but then i buy 500W PSU but it was too late It doesn't comes with DELL 220W anymore, so the 6pin cable is useless. People tend to use high-end GPU with it's product, so it is safer for them if we buy our own ATX PSU for more reliable performance
  18. The $250 GTX 1060 is almost here. (July 19th) and still way more cheaper, more performance and more efficient than a 980. But i guess i will go for the 1070 in the next couple of months, to see if theres any significant issues on the first build or not. Founders Edition is as gorgeous as the Reference card design
  19. What eGPU brand are you using? is it ExpressCard/Thunderbolt/mini PCIe? Well technically i believe the mod NVIDIA BIOS firmware on the 970 is not ready for macOS Sierra. But i've found on eBay GTX 980 that are ready for macOS Sierra: http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_nkw=GTX 980 mac&clk_rvr_id=1055004319839&mfe=so_en-US_searchBox&mpt=1467303709276
  20. I have similar issue. Did you solved it already? I'm using Lenovo W520, Intel Core i7 2760QM, 12GB RAM on OEM Windows 10 64-bit with Quadro 6000 and Quadro 4000 for Mac, both show same error. Beat V8 mini PCIe with Whitelist v1.42 BIOS Did you use mPCIe or ExpressCard? Did you plug the 6 pin auxiliary power cable to the GPU from the PSU?
