  1. I think irokez might be up to something. If we get that 4k adapter can we play on native 2560x1600 ??? enjoy can you even get to 1080p or 2560x1600 ??? My question is how can i get 2560x1600?
  2. Hey enjoy what resolution is your fake monitor??? What does that mean work with 4k resolution? macbook is only 2880 so why would u want 4k???
  3. I don't think that's true since the op has screenshots showing native resolution. Right? the secondary monitor at 1080 is good enough for this solution right?? great suggestion btw
  4. With hdmi dummy plug can it work with native resolution or just 1080p?
  5. that looks great!!! great job. I think your gonna get more people inspired. another question can you do a video of the boot up procedures from the beginning? from the computer off to how to get to gaming....
  6. can you take some photos or even video of how games look?> since you are using software to make bordorless can you tell? Is there qulity loss?
  7. Will this GTX1070 fit the thunder 2?? https://www.amazon.com/Gigabyte-GeForce-GDDR5-Graphics-GV-N1070IXOC-8GD/dp/B01JD2OSX0 Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 Mini ITX OC 8GB GDDR5 Graphics Cards GV-N1070IXOC-8GD
  8. So before i purchase everything including the dell power supply the Akitio and the GTX1060 here are my questions: 1. Will I have issues getting this to start with Windows 10 on my Mid 2012 retina? I see so many people have issues getting this to start or having some voddu way to make it work. 2. I travel for work so i plan to take this with me either in my suitcase or laptop bag so play games in the hotel. Is this my best option? Obviously better option is to buy a new laptop with a GTX1060 or 1070 but what do you guys think. Is this too much to make it work?

  10. hey can you tell me which hdmi to vga adapter you bought. does it need a audio out in back like the pic from lukedog?
  11. hey so where do i download the eGPU Setup ? WHat does that do like create a new boot menu? If i had not found your post I would have returned all items. but based on what you did, i am going to give it a shot!
  12. Another stupid question which adapter works and which resistor? Does this resistor work? https://www.amazon.com/Uxcell-a14041400ux1185-Piece-Resistance-Resistors/dp/B00PZYO11K/ref=sr_1_2?s=industrial&ie=UTF8&qid=1483650730&sr=1 YOUR SETUP LOOKS AMAZING BTW!
  13. thanks for the reply. do I have to use a vga adapter to set up internal display right? Your whole windowed method scares me! and I can play full screen in the internal display!? also which nvidia drivers do you recommend right now?
  14. hi can you please help me out on a mid 2012 macbook retina. bought all the parts gtx1070, da-2 akitio but question is since I have a mid 2012 do i have to use the adapter and resistor trick to use the internal display!??? thanks
  15. bought bought all parts akitio 2, gtx1070 and dell da-2 along with ebay adapter. havent set up yet. will set up next week. but my goal was to play on internal display. will i have error 12 issues? this may be more trouble than its worth.
  16. Hi I have a mid 2012 macbook retina and just bought the akitio, gtx1070 and a dell power supply. Since i have the mid 2012 will i have the error 12 issue!? And i wanted to play on internal display. is it really that easy? Its look more trouble then its worth? What do you think?

    will non reference gtx980 work??? and do you guys think this will FIT with the fan removed?
  19. Can this one be used with the Dell power supply??
  20. I really want to make the AKiTiO but what stops me is the power supply. my goal is to create something that I can travel with! I travel for work around 30-40% of the year. Sometimes I take my xbox with me but would like to take an external GPU instead! So can someone make me a portable powersupply? I will be happy to pay them for the time. THis is the ONLY reason I am even considering the stupid Bizon box. Hoping someone can help me.

    220W Dell DA-2 AC adapter discussion

    guys can i use a da-2 with a gtx980ti??
  23. I travel for work a lot. Sometimes I take my xbox with me but would like to make a exgpu to game in hotel rooms. so i was thinking the akitio with a gtx1060 and bootcamp on mid 2012 macbook 15 retina. Is it stable and will it work perfectly on internal display? Now im reading how its not that stable and may not be worth the hastle. Should i go for it?

    thanks. will hold off on ordering until i get more info on the node. if it works with the tb3 to tb2 adapter might be the better way to go and to future proof. I also have a GTX980ti sitting at home that i can use for this and looks like a nice way to use without modifying anything.
