Does leaving akitio semi-closed run hot? [picture]
kxplus, in Apple eGPU discussion
I'm debating whether or not to replace the thermal paste in my Lenovo y510p. I've started overclocking a bit, and I have an external fan, but I would like to not have to run the fan as fast because it is a little loud. I have been reading a bit about different thermal pastes, and I'm wondering if there is even a big difference between stock thermal paste, and something like the liquid metal from thermal grizzly. It sounds like it'd work better, but I don't want to fall for a good marketing scheme. If anyone has experience with this and has or hasn't seen big differences, your input would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
First I want to thank the community, who have inspired me to do this project.

This modding may be possible to convert to allot of laptops.

Hello! My name is Arman! I from Armenia, and sorry for my English!
I have iMac Late 2013 with Intel core i5, 8Gb, NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M 1024 Mb. I have Boot Camp installation on my iMac (now i have 7 Windows, but i can update it to 10 or 8 Windows)
I discover that there is an Akitio 2, wich can use with iMac 2013 for productivity increase. I want to use akitio 2 with GTX 1050 ti 4Gb, but i dont know how it is intalling on iMac?
Who can write for me the process of installation ALL equipment (akitio 2 + GTX 1050 ti + imac)? What i must to do? I talking about from the very beginning to the very end.
PLEASE everyone, help me. You are my last chance !!!!
Hi guys, im selling a modified akitio thunder 2 enclosure with an nvidia zotac 960 ddr5 2gb. I also include the power supply unit, you wont have to do any aditional manipulation.
Hi guys. I have had my egpu setup and running fine for the past year or so on my mbp (mid 2012) which has a hdd drive.
I now want to improve the gaming performance, so I've bought an ssd.
I manage to get through all the steps in eGPU Setup 1.2 but when i go through the bootloader, it says at the very end "No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key".
I'm guessing it is to do with my ssd being in the optical drive bay location (i assume this is hd1) and the original hdd (hd0) being disconnected, so windows can't see it when in bootloader.
I think I need to edit the config file for the chainloader, so the bootloader reads the ssd but what exactly do i need to change?
I tried changing the map section (line 55):
map (%FIRSTHDD%) (hd0)
Changing the (hd0) to (hd1) put the bootloader in a loop!? So I am not sure what to try next...
Any help is greatly appreciated!
