    Or anyone have any idea on how to get the oculink (SFF-8611) receptacle? The only source I have found is the nvme RAID cards or nvme ssd cages. If I could find these alone then it will cut the cost a lot. The price of oculink cable is fairly reasonable.(about US$15)

    It shouldn’t. Oculink itself is designed to transfer PCIe signals.

    There will always be a base model and that’s mature. I’m just wondering how many people are interested in the ultimate but expensive y400/500/410p/510p eGPU solution. For the laptop itself is aging, I don’t know if it’s worth investing after all.

    I don’t listed ANY of my design on ANY platform. That’s tricky, but the fact is that I posted my design somewhere in Chinese and somebody ripped it off and made their own. And they just claim that’s their work, which makes me angry. What’s more, they just did a bad job and most of these boards have a bad connection or unstable performance or weird behavior(like often BSOD or running at x4 or even x1 instead of x8),which bring me a bad reputation and frustrate me. That’s why I hesitated to public my design. I’m still working on my exam and have no extra effort dealing on this mess. But I haven’t listed any of my adapters on eBay, aliexpress , dealextreme, taobao or anything like that for the time being. Stay tuned for that. In defense of China, I don’t hate China and I am a Chinese myself. Not all the Chinese are evil. But there’s nothing to promise a country of 1.3 trillion population won’t have something unfavorable mixed into it.

    Maybe l found an elegant way to implement this project. It can make the attach/detach process as convenient as thunderbolt does.(Not hot unpluggable tho)It might be very expensive(can make the enclosure kit above US$200 but I will try my best to find cheaper part sourcesto lower the final price). Are you interested in it and willing to let me make it alive? How many of you are willing to buy it? Let me know. (ps. It didn’t go through the proof of concept. It should work but I don’t know if I could make it work. Let me know if you DO want to PURCHASE it. (I’m running out of money and the R&D for this project has cost me a lot . If you don’t REALLY want it, I don’t want to study on it any more. It cost too much of my life and money. For anyone who wants to dive into it, it’s called oculink.

    Now it can be possible. I heard that the thunderbolt 3 card from gigabyte called GC-Titan-Ridge can work without attaching to the TB3-header and just short the pin3 and pin5 of the header! So maybe it will work on ultrabay adapter! Haven’t tried though.

    I won’t include it in my design but it can be a relatively simple mod to do the trick. Maybe I have sent them before in this thread, but I will sent it once again in case you can’t find’em. There’s two ways of doing it. You can either glue a ordinary ODD to 2.5inch HDD tray to the adapter or using a slim SATA cable to attach the drive outside the machine. Under the circumstance of the external cable one you could just run a SATA powering line from your PSU so that you can power a 3.5inch drive.(If you decide to use your PSU for your drive’s power, there’s no need for slim SATA cable. An ordinary SATA will do the trick. There can be some aligning and fitting work to do to make it working.

    What I said here may be absolutely false. Everything can be changed. Please be subject to my final announcement.

    There will be another version for full length GPU+SFX PSU I won’t do ATX PSU for they’re too big and therefore being meaningless. Also there can be a version without casing. I can’t give out any price estimate for now. Maybe I will double check the costs later and label it for an reasonable price. Everything will be subject to the final announcement. (ps. I think it won’t be very cheap, as I said above. As a student this project has drained my wallet

    There might be 2 versions. I. Board adapter with acrylic supporting (You can also buy the supporting part individually and assemble it to your existing Gerald version of adapter) II.Adapter with cable and daughter board in a case. It might be expensive, for the PCIe cable is not cheap anyway. I don’t have the time to trial and error, but I can guarantee I ship the things works well. Won’t begin shipping before June. I’m preparing for an exam and I had to spend all my time into it. will be back then. (have already send the pics of my design in this thread. Just browse the previous pages of the thread if you want to take a look at it)

    It’s a finished product:) Anyone who wants it may reply to this posting and I will consider shipping them? Won’t before June

    I have said somewhere in this thread before. I will take part in my NCEE on 6/8 2019 and it finishes at late 6/9 UTC+8. Then maybe I will go on and work on the adapter. I can’t give a exact time but you can estimate using the time I said before.

    They are still alive, and I could still make them in the future. After I finished my NCEE......

    That’s true? Wow. As far as I know, the internal display relies on the iGPU to work. If only an emulator can do as you said, maybe there’s a way to use eGPU @ internal display on y400/500. Can you share your related bios/system settings? Huge thanks!

    It’s not possible & no need & have side effects. To convert to an TB3, you will need a TB3 controller. Till now I have no idea how to get a controller working on regular PCIe. Also the Ultrabay itself provides enough bandwidth(PCIe x8,and just the PCIe itself without any other mess) while TB3 is PCIe x4. You are just cutting your bandwidth in half regardless of TB protocol overhead. The only reason for this is hot plugging the gpu. I know hot plugging PCIe devices is a thing but for now I have no idea how to implement it...
