  1. Is there any information for Latest Thinkpad P50 eGPU setup, System wont run When I connect Pe4l 2.1b with express card . Please give me Ideas....
  2. Could the expresscard HDMI wire be damaged even though the graphics card runs and the GDC beast turns on? I sometimes while plugged in can see the GPU in the device manager but it quickly disappears. Could it be my HDMI wire? how can i test it.
  3. Hi all, I'm looking to sell a PE4L V2.1b (Expresscard Version) and GTX750. I have used them both reliably on my Thinkpad X230t, achieving x1.2Opt and able to run pretty much any game decently well, for the past year without any issues. This setup works great as a portable setup since the GTX750 doesn't require external power. I recently bought a desktop so I have no further need for them. Here is a link to the graphics card. I'm looking to sell the PE4L for $60 (got it for $70) and the GTX750 for $70 (got it for $90) or $120 for both, with a flat rate of $5 for shipping. Here's a picture of my previous setup that I was running off the eGPU. If you have any questions or want more pictures of the parts, please PM me! Thanks!
  4. Hi, I just succesfully finished a low profile eGPU setup, I decided to share the experience I had. My goal was to make it as portable as possible but still powerful enough to drive the internal 12.5 inch 1366x768 display of my lenovo x220. The parts I used: PE4L 2.1b + EC2C with EC-060A (l x w) 64 x 47 mm Zalman GTX650 low profile max 64W (l x w x h) 150 x 55 x 35 mm Laptop AC adapter 12v 10a 120w TEKO P/3 small plastic case (l x w x h) 160 x 90 x 60 mm M2 nuts and bols Lenovo X220 with 1.37 bios (Series 6, HD3000) USB to USB cable The GTX650 low profile card is very nice for an internal eGPU setup, its very small and draws only 64W max. This means it can draw its power from the pci-e lane, which provides 75W max. No extra connectors on the videocard. Its still powerfull enough to run games at high/ultra on 1366x768. Ofcourse an atx psu is not an option for portability, so a 12V 10A 120W ac laptop adapter is used (2.5 - 5.5mm plug). The initial installation went pretty smooth, the card got detected and the nvidia drivers installed withouth problems. There was no need to change the tolud size or an dstd override. Settings used pe4l: SW1: 1, SW2: 2-3 Settings used bios: PCI express speed -> automatic, PCI express powermanagement -> off. Unfortunatly I couldn't run a benchmark or game for longer then 3 minutes without a bsod or crash. After some research it turned out the card didnt get a clean 3.3v from the pci-e lane. The fix was to run an usb - usb cable from the laptop to the pe4l for 3.3v power. No more crashes and very stable performance :-) Too bad an extra cable is needed though, portability took a small hit there. A few pics of the case and the setup: Some dremel action for the dvi and hdmi port: More dremel action to run the cable and pci-express card through: Drilled m2 holes to mount the pe4l: pe4l mounted on m2 bolts: Up and running: Need to finish the cover plate and paint the enclosure matte black: And a small video I made: Let me know what you think!
  5. In a pinch for time, so can't write very much. PE4L is better, due to lower price. Both PE4L 2.1 and PE4H 3.2 have 1.2 Opt support. 1. Both will work, PE4L and PE4H are basically like the PCI slot on a desktop motherboard - you plug GPU into this, and connect other components to the PE4L/PE4H 2. Yes, as stated above, boith PE4L and PE4H will work. PE4L 2.1 or PE4H 3.2, PE4L is recommended due to lower price 3. Yes hope someone else can re-address your questions and explain better. Just wanted to give you quick answers to you have a general idea.
