  1. Gaming Laptop build with GTX750ti-LP (Non-eGPU)

    I would replace the Dell motherboard first before upgrading the GPU but I don't plan to do that anytime soon. The GTX 750ti LP is fine gaming at my native resolution 1600x900

    Thanks! It's definitely a one-off mod to my knowledge. I've seen a few people use aluminium flight cases to make something similar to this but I've never seen anyone mod a laptop in this way. It serves my needs thus why I went down this route. Still have more bells and whistles to add, such as USB 3.0 ports on the side panel and a unique feature I will be adding soon.
  3. Gaming Laptop build with GTX750ti-LP (Non-eGPU)

    Thanks! Build update: Everything is going great so far. I have the new SFF PSU mounted and I also made a bracket to mount the Hard Drive. I've got the pci-e extender cable connected to the GPU. I booted the system up with an external monitor and played 'The Crew' with medium to high settings getting around 50 fps. The laptop screen has been replaced with a 1600x900 (Matte) screen but I'm waiting for the LCD controller board to arrive from China before I can connect it. In the meantime I'm making the plastic paneling to go around front and sides.
  4. Gaming Laptop build with GTX750ti-LP (Non-eGPU)

    Received the LCD controller board from China and installed it in the laptop. Good quality board, no setup needed simple plug and play. Image quality looks fantastic, also no lag. Using a short HDMI cable to connect it to the GPU. I'm using a 12v 2amp power adapter to power the board but I plan to power it from the PSU in the laptop. The LCD board has a 4-pin speaker output so I ordered some 5w loud speakers to fit on the front panel. I still have the side panels to fit. Anyway, I've been gaming on it, surfing the net, streaming videos, etc. All good!

    The base is 6.5cm and total laptop thickness with lid is 7.5cm - Weight is 3.6kg compared to my old Dell D630 laptop that is 2.3kg. Those old Eurocom portable servers would be great to mod into a gaming laptop.

    Update: Received the speakers that connect to the LCD board, bigger than what I thought. They sound great installed, lots of volume!
  7. Having pondered over a eGPU build I instead decided to put my GPU inside my 15.6 laptop by extending the laptop base. I have a Dell optiplex 390 where my GTX 750ti LP once lived but as I now spend more time with my laptop on the sofa the Dell optiplex is now a donor for my gaming laptop build. I'm using the Dell motherboard for this build. It has a i5-2400 CPU - 8GB DDR3 RAM - MSI GTX 750ti LP GPU. The Dell PSU is too big for this build so I will be using a Seasonic SS-250SU 250W PSU. The laptop used for this build is a Fujitsu LifeBook AH530 that has a 1366x768 LED screen, this screen will be replaced with a higher resolution 1600x900 screen. The extended base of the laptop is now 6.5 cm. Parts needed to complete the build: Seasonic SS-250SU 250W PSU PCI Express 16x Flexible Extension cable LP156WD1 (TL)(B1) 15.6" LED 1600x900 screen LCD Controller Board Ultra slim keyboard with touchpad Work so far in pictures: Continue reading the full thread here:
