  1. You will have to google that yourself. However unless those are new laptops for 2015 the chance they have a M.2 Type m slot is almost none. Found 2 new laptops for the list of fresh coming of CES Both have M.2 type M Hp Zbook 14g2 Hp Zbook 15u
  2. Thats me! Was planning to post here but was searching on NBR and couldn't find the thread, well back on the right track again A list with laptops that have a M.2 Type M slot that support PCI-e 4x Asus Zenbook nx500jk Hp Zbook 15/17 G2 Hp Omen gaming laptop, but its M.2 slot seems to be the ONLY slot for a hard drive Sony Via Pro 13, but its M.2 slot seems to be the ONLY slot for a hard drive Clevo P650, P651 Clevo P670, P671 Clevo P751ZM, P771ZM laptop with Desktop CPU, 2x slots, possibly for 8x or PCI-e 3.0? Problem with the clevo laptops is that they already have performance comparable to a desktop so why try to make a external system. T We need a MSI Gs30 like laptop, small, light, quad core, socketed cpu, intel iris or GTX 850 ish gpu onboard and a free M.2 type M slot. Haven't found more laptops that support the M.2 Type we need, hope CES brings more but getting actual specs from internal connectors seems to be hard.
  3. I was searching a bit but couldn't find anything about this, my google fu is not doing well lately so if this is a stupid idea please tell me. I was planning on shelling out on a GTX970m laptop but always had the dream of setting up a perfect eGPU setup, then I saw the laptop i wanted to buy had a M.2 PCI-Express x4 (16gbps!) slot aboard. And my mind went racing, what if i just link that to a gpu? So i found this P4SM2 (PCIe x4 to M.2 NGFF adapter) - M-FACTORS Storage Then just link that to one of these PCI E Express Extension Cable Flex Ribbon 4X to 16x Extender Riser Card Adapter | eBay And im done? for around 70 dollar? Am i missing something? Edit: Except the fact i hardly need a eGPU if i buy that GTX970m laptop (pci-e to mxm sli config maybe?) and i found a list of laptops with a M.2 type M slot that should just be pci-e compatible and not only sata. I includes the Clevo i want to buy 80mm PCI-e M.2 NGFF (2280) Notebooks/Devices Sager NP8651 / Clevo P650SE SONY VAIO Pro 13 (bootable) So also a Via 13 pro, would make more sense in that but still not a perfect target.
  4. Allot of fans control settings have this, i was trying the same and came to the conclusion that the only thing that is going to help is to solder a resistance into the cable so it runs slower than it says. The thing with that is the max fan speed will also be lower like that. The program mentionned does help though. I got my 2560p in the mail today and i'm very happy, my 300 euro's well spend. I've upgraded it to a I7 2630QM and added another ram stick of 2gb to 6gb ram total (and by random luck it was the same ram as installed, same type number and brand just smaller). And ofcourse dropped in my Samsung 840 evo ssd. Didn't do a fresh install so had some problems with nvidia drivers from my old laptop but nothing driver sweeper couldn't fix. Sorta curious how mutch i could ask for it here in Holland in it's upgraded state. There still selling the 2570p's for 1300 euro in its lowest specs. Idle temps are a bit high though, about 50-53C, used Arctic silver so it does have a burn in but wonder if i could undervolt or tweak the cooling abit.
  5. Yeah read the posts about it now, just seems extremely strange it was working and then failed upon changing back to ivy. Im a stubborn tweaker (i gues you all are as otherwise you would never do this stuff ) so im just gonna go on a limb and say it has been another reason it was fried. Just seems very weird to me that a motherboard fries upon installing the original cpu because it changes back from an cpu it should not work with but did! Also there is absolutely no mention of how broken the motherboard was, no post?, just random errorness?, burned and eaten by aliens? Im searching for ether the 2560 or 2570 but whatever is cheaper i will buy, just try to make sure the warranty is good when i buy a 2570 Edit: Okay thanks to you all i just bought a 2560p on Ebay for a grand total of 304 euro including shipping and the Dutch 21% import tax :) I have checked for ages on the web to find something comparable new but other then the 1700+ euro M4800 from Dell i couldn't find anything like the good old Elitebook series. Have a i7-2360qm and a 840 evo 256gb ready for some upgrade action. Btw this snow effect from the website makes me panic and think i have screen tearing all the time
  6. Thanks for the reply jacobsson. However you are talking about upgrading a sandy mobo to a ivy cpu. Im talking about upgrading a dual core ivy to a quad core sandy on a 2750p. I gues this is a different outcome. Might even be no1 tried it? Sent from my LT26i using Tapatalk
  7. Im considering buying this over a dell m4800 for budget reasons and the fun of upgrading a laptop cpu and making a egpu (670) system. I have a laptop with a broken screen with a socketed i7 2630qm processor. Would it be possible for the ivy bridge chipset to use this cpu? Sent from my LT26i using Tapatalk
  8. I just registered to thank you for the most helpful and clear post I have seen since starting to search for this subject. Clearly written and recommendations based on facts and experience. A pleasure to sore forum eyes! A couple of other considerations to think of in the light of buying a 12-14 inch laptop that can be plugged in to become a desktop aswell (I basically have the same idea as Gwypaas) As far as i can see a i7 3520qm Lenovo x230 comes for 1070dollars and a Hp 2570 needs a whopping 1499dollars for the same(just going off manufacturer us website prices here), even though the hp has more upgrade paths that seems allot of money. I have a I7 2630qm proccesor in my 3+kilo 2hour battery life laptop atm, would it be a good idea to use that as a way to upgrade a i3 Hp2570? or is the power consumption/tdp from that sandy bridge to high to use with it? What type of Gpu should i buy for this system? I am personally thinking of spending about 150-200 euro for a card as it seems thats where the price/performance is at atm. The new 650 ti boost any good for the use? Thnx in advance for any anwser
