  1. FreeSync was noticable, expecially in games like World of Tanks which suffer a lot from screen tearing.
  2. Coil whine [emoji1] my exp gdc v6 has a lot of it when gpu is under full load :-) And for the fans why should they spin if the card is cool enough.
  3. Did you tey putting any load onto card? Many new Maxwell cards have fearure where they dont spinn the fans if Temps are OK and there is no load. Ive had msi gtx 980 that did just that.
  4. Ive tested 34um67 with egpu r9 290 and it worked fine, including freesync. Sent from my C1905 using Tapatalk
  5. Yes, E5430 sports PCIe 2.0 EC slot - 5gbps - but i3 3110M was a serious bottleneck for 760 i tested it with, also yes, internal screen is 1366x768. Its my GFs notebook and if i even mention eGPU in the same context as her laptop she gets "i'm gonna cut of your balls if you touch it again" look if you click on the #2 and #3 links in my signature you can see some more numbers and graphs to get a better understanding of how eGPU performs in few games where i have tested it. @ nando - i'm still waiting for my boss to decide how we will publish translated eGPU articles and as soon as i know anything i will hit you with links. They might come in handy for newcomers to get some idea of how eGPU works as entire process was a bit overwhelming even for me who works IT for a living
  6. http://www.pcekspert.com/clanak/samogradnja-egpu/?pg=4 On this link you can see differences in some benchmarks i made with e5430 and gtx 760 egpu. Loss was around 40% when comparing sinthetic benchmarks, but in games, due to much lower resolution of the internal screen, gameplay was smooth and had much higher fps.

  7. Import taxes and/or VAT are something you should have known about as well as curier handling fees when taxation happens. In my country you get slamed for both on items over 26€. Im sorry you didnt know that but those are not seller responsibilities and that extra money goes to DHL and your government. Sent from my C1905 using Tapatalk
  8. All 3 articles are translated, just waiting for our translator to fix up my bad grammar. In the meantime I've received FreeSync monitor R9 290 and FirePro W8100 and will try eGPU on those two very soon EDIT: M6800 R9 290 eGPU implementation proces: 1. Enter bios and disable switchable graphics 2. Boot into windows and install latest available Catalyst drovers 3. Put computer to sleep 4. Plug in R9 290 eGPU 5. Profit 6. Make sure you only plug in eGPU when you send computer to sleep Edit2: For some reason sleep method is no longer needed. Pure plug n play, like in desktop :-) Also just testing AMD FirePro W8100 which is also plug n play :-)
  9. Did you try it on your E6440? YOu posted you changed in bold to red here So a line prior to edit that looks like this: 0x69D31 Setting: Platform power limit lock, Variable: 0x54 {05 A6 11 01 12 01 3D 00 02 00 54 00 10 10 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00} 0x69D57 Option: Disabled, Value: 0x0 {09 0E F2 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00} 0x69D65 Option: Enabled, Value: 0x1 {09 0E F1 00 30 00 01 00 00 00 00 00 00 00} 0x69D73 End of Options {29 02} Should looke like this: 0x69D31 Setting: Platform power limit lock, Variable: 0x0 {05 A6 11 01 12 01 3D 00 02 00 54 00 10 10 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00} 0x69D57 Option: Disabled, Value: 0x0 {09 0E F2 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00} 0x69D65 Option: Disabled, Value: 0x0 {09 0E F1 00 30 00 01 00 00 00 00 00 00 00} 0x69D73 End of Options {29 02} Or the value behind variable should left unchanged? EDIT: I've did "bios update" from A13 to A13 and "bios reset" by taking out both batteries AND cpu is now going up to 47W. Regardless of it I'll try to unlock it just for lulz and testing.
  10. A little bit OT, ive got myself a second M6800 with i5 4200M and upgraded it to a i7 4710MQ. Im hitting that artificial 37w TDP limit. Will play with editing TDP variables per your guide next week. Both motherboards from my i7 4810mq and this new i5 4710mq look the same. Little bit of info, im hitting 3.2GGHz at 37w tdp with -75mV undervolt. No undervolt hits 3.0GHz But since that machine will be used as a video rendering station i would reall like to get those extra 300mhz. Sent from my C1905 using Tapatalk
  11. I think you do. I needed for 2570p and gtx 960. Sent from my C1905 using Tapatalk
  12. Furmark stresses only gpus and also when drivers detect it they tend not to use turbo boost clocks. Run prime95 paralel with heaven or 3dmark fs in a loop. Sent from my C1905 using Tapatalk
  13. Its not. There is no crossfire connector on the card. Sent from my C1905 using Tapatalk
  14. @Tech Inferno Fan It's my article, I've recently started working for them and this is actually my second eGPU article for them. First was with Dell Latitude E5430 + GTX 760 which was plug n play. Funnily enough that E5430 was also plug n play with Radeon R9 270X. 3rd article is planned with 2570P and AMD R9 270x I'm just waiting for a friend to give me test details of that same 270X in combination with his 2500K so I can provide more of the relevant information about eGPU and how it scales and works. If there is enough interest I could translate both articles to English as entire series is or at least should serve as introduction into eGPU world and I try to cover as much implementations I could with limited amout of time I have with hardware i get.
  15. Hit your 2570p with a quad if you didnt. Nothing in 12.5" department cant even come close in performance department...
