Y510p Ultrabay Graphics card

Recommended Posts

@Karasiel would you be willing to sell me 3 connectors? Just like you I would like to build one of the adapters and change the design slightly.

Hello everyone, I'm sorry for the sabbatical. What with COVID and my move, it's been a crazy time in my life.

 

The good news:

My eGPU open source project is not dead

Someone else has forked my project as of yesterday or today (what prompted me to make this post) so you may get it sooner than I can produce it from that person

I now have room to build up a proper electronics lab

 

The bad news:

I just investigated that forked project and it appears for the time being it is private. We will see if it comes public at a later time. I encourage someone else in the community to try their hand at a fork

I have some other intervening projects including actually setting up my new electronics lab that will take up a lot of time

I never managed to pursue the guy who I found that has reverse-engineered the Lenovo energy management app for different reasons. I got him on Discord but never actually chatted with him. I can't remember if I mentioned this but I did find a guy who disassembled the app and am hoping there will be a way to control the fan with no hardware mod in software.

I have a job that requires lots of travel abroad, which will slow me down further

My Y510p has been on loan for a little while (also has a weird power issue I need to diagnose, but that's not for this thread)

 

For the time being, feel free to keep an eye on my open source project as well as looking out for a fork, which may produce results before I can. My biggest problem is getting proper differential pair routing on the board using Altium's software. It's still new to me and for some reason auto-routing is failing in this regard. That's where I left off. After there is a working model for the pcb I will be exploring a nifty cabled design that I think will be popular. I will try to be more active on this forum which will inspire me to concentrate more fully on this project, lol

 

Edit: Forked project available here

Well, whats your question?

If this is the question - no, you cannot control fan from the software. Its in EC firmware btw, so you will have to disassemble that, code in fan control support, and then you possibly could control it. While working with IdeaFan I disassembled everything there was, from app up to a kernel/driver level. What I did not - did not disassembled the EC firmware. Its way easier to install hardware fan control (like someone shows in forums) than going EC modification way. So IdeaFan is using 100% what's available currently through software.

Actually I don't think you were the guy I was referring to but even if you're someone else I appreciate that you have experience in this matter :). I specifically was hoping to tear down the dlls and find the call that the energy management app makes to the EC to make it do a dust cleaning. If that is the best we can do it is still preferable to me than using a screen scraper app to press the "dust cleaning" button. Any control granularity found that is better than that would be a bonus.

Finally!

Guys from farnell.com sent me mine backordered connectors to chosen UK mail-forward address. Despite "same day dispatch", shipment was made in 2 weeks, as I've placed my order on September 29th and delivery was fulfilled on October 12th.
And I've already forwarded them to my place. (Still in transition.)

Expenses are 66.99 USD for connectors themselves plus delivery to UK address (free delivery over UK, VAT included, however) and 7.50 USD for mail-forward services.

74.49 USD for 7 connectors

or

10.65 USD per unit.

@Karasiel I was curious if you have plans for all 7 connectors or if you would be willing to sell me 2 or 3? I haven’t pulled the trigger at farnell due to the minimum order quantity. I don’t really need 7 connectors but would be open to help you recoup some of your expenses if you don’t plan on using all of the 7 connectors.

I can't believe I have never heard of it. I'll have to give it a try, thanks!

 

@LeapingLamb I managed to get Newark to reduce their minimum order quantity to my requested 20 connectors by phoning. Honestly anyone on here if you try phoning Newark/Farnell (same company) they are likely to help you out. Also according to the representative I spoke to they aren't actually obsoleted for them; they could in theory order more if they ran out.

Hy guys,

 

I am looking for ultrabay to pci-e adapter and i cant find any seller or used adapter card on the internet. Is there any one here selling it? Or is it possible to get any link where i can buy it?

I am going to start on a project, turning my Y510p in to frankenstein desktop PC, because of broken keyboard connector on mobo, it is useless as laptop. I am thinking about changing stock heat pipe cooling with some coustom desktop cpu cooler and bind it with a GTX 1070ti and put  everything in a custom plexiglass enclosure. I think i should get pretty solid performance.

 

I know there are m.2 to PCI-e adapters, but i dont want to sacrifice wifi an BT.

 

Thanks for any advice.

Hi, @matic!

 

You should contact @Swung Huang and ask him if he's got any left. His email is somewhere above in this thread. The only other way for you to get an adapter right now is either if someone here decides to sell theirs, or if someone succeeds making one (we've got a couple of people working on it right now!)

 

On a completely unrelated note, I've also had the keyboard connector break in my Y510p. In my case it was the black locking part that fell off and I could never fit it in place again. What I ended up doing was making a wedge just the right size to fit between the PCB and the keyboard, applying necessary pressure to the cable. I've cut it out of a piece of proto-pcb (just the right thickness!) and wrapped it in couple layers of duct tape. Then I first insert the flex cable as normal, and fit this wedge on top of it into the connector, then just install the keyboard. Never had any problems with this setup so far.

So it appears that my fear came true and SOMEBODY bought out the remaining stock on Newark (or some other distributor using the same supplier) underneath my order while I was waiting to get the funds to make the purchase. I don't know who has the funds to buy 294/500 connectors but I hope to god they don't show up on ebay at insane prices for each. Boo. I'm treading water at this point. Sorry everyone. I can only do little things with the board design but no practical testing for me until I can find a new source for the connector.

 

As of writing this, the Newark site is showing 294 in stock but they are reserved for a sale pending a stock update according to the phone representative.

Hi,

 

This is my first time to buy Video Card.

 

Can I use any Latest Video Cards? Is there any limitations?

Spent the last few hours reading through this forum and my mind is mush.  I've got a y400 that I think could make it a few more years with an eGPU.  I e-mailed @Swung Huang about availability.

 

Anyone tried this in a y400?

 

Anyone else close to making some more adapters? @Karasiel?

      Hi all! I am wondering if it's possible to remove the bios whitelist easily. Because of the whitelist, my external gpu setup that I got recently refuses to work. If it helps at all, I know that the wifi card that used to be in the slot was the intel 8265ngw. Here's the bios link if that helps too: laptops and netbooks :: thinkpad x series laptops :: thinkpad x380 yoga :: 20lj :: 20ljs20n00 :: mp1e15eb - Lenovo Support US
      Thanks for your help!

      We've had a stack of recurring questions from with problems getting a mPCIe eGPU working. This includes GPU-Z not reporting no clock details, error 10/43 or even not being detected at all. Overall it's more troublesome getting mPCIe working than say expresscard or Thunderbolt.
       
      Here's some common problems and some troubleshooting steps to correct them.
       
      Getting a black bootup screen, resolving error 10/43 or ACPI_BIOS_ERROR win bootup messages
       
      Here the BIOS doesn't know what to do when it sees an eGPU. So the solution is to not let the BIOS see it. Do that by setting the delays on the eGPU adapter (CTD/PTD - EXP GDC or CLKRUN/PERST# on PE4L/PE4C). Boot with eGPU adapter in the wifi slot into Setup 1.30 or Windows. Is the eGPU detected?
       
      I'll add that should error 43 continue AND you have a NVidia dGPU as well as NVidia eGPU then it's likely because of having the mobile NVidia and desktop NVidia drivers loaded simultaneously. Proceed to uninstall ALL your NVidia drivers, use "DDU" to clean NVidia registry entries and do a 'clean' install of the latest NVidia desktop driver.
       
      mPCIe port that hosted the wifi card disappears when connecting an eGPU in it's place
       
      Use the Setup1.30 PCIe Ports->enable to enable the missing port.
       
      eGPU does not get detected
       
      Overcome mPCIe whitelisting by booting with the wifi card and then hotswapping in the eGPU. That way the BIOS will enable the mPCIe port to work.
       
      1. Boot with wifi card into Windows, sleep system, swap wifi card for mPCIe eGPU adapter and ensure eGPU is powered on, resume system. Do a device manager scan in Windows. Is the eGPU detected?
       
      2. Boot with wifi card into Setup 1.30 *carefully* hotplug the eGPU adapter in place of wifi card. Hit F5 to rescan the PCIe bus. Is the eGPU detected?
       
      If this enables detection then avoid this tedious hotswapping by seeking a unwhitelisted modified BIOS for your system OR test the Setup 1.30's PCI ports->undo_whitesting feature.
       
      eGPU still not detected - set the PSU to be permanently on
       
      The latest EXP GDC and BPlus eGPU adapters try to manage the PSU to only power on after they detect a signal. This can cause a race condition where the eGPU isn't ready to go when the CLKRUN signal is asserted.
       
      Avoid this by jumpering the PSU so it's permanently on rather than being managed. Depending on the PSU you are using refer to the following doco on how to do that:
       
      http://forum.techinferno.com/enclosures-adapters/8441-%5Bguide%5D-switching-atx-psu-using-paperclip-trick-swex.html
      http://forum.techinferno.com/enclosures-adapters/9426-220w-dell-da-2-ac-adapter-discussion.html
       
      eGPU still not detected - a non-standard mPCIe implementation by your vendor?
       
      PERST# mPCIe pin 22 may need to be isolated due to a non-standard implementation by your notebook vendor: http://forum.techinferno.com/enclosures-adapters/10812-pe4x-series-understanding-clkreq-perst-delay.html#post142689
       
      eGPU still not detected - faulty hardware?
       
      If you still don't get detection then test the video card and eGPU adapter in another machine to confirm neither is faulty.
       
      NVidia driver stops responding
       
      EXP GDC, PE4H 2.4 and PE4L 1.5 all use a socketted cable and therefore are not true Gen2 compatible device. This error indicates there was transmissions errors.
       
      The solution is either to get a better Gen2-compliant eGPU adapter such as PE4C V3.0 or PE4L 2.1b (both with soldered cable), or downgrade your link from Gen2 to Gen1 using BIOS options or Setup 1.30

      Required items:
      1.) Lenovo u310 (I have a Core i3 - Ivy Bridge, 8GB RAM)
      2.) 65CN99WW unwhitelisted.
      3.) eGPU (I used a EVGA GTX 750 Ti from another computer I had).
      4.) EXP GDC mPCIe Edition adapter (got from eBay - banggood seller).
      5.) ATX power supply (I used a 600W PSU from another computer I had).
      6.) USB wireless.
      7.) External monitor, keyboard, and mouse.
       
      Steps:
      1.) Obtain and install a unwhitelisted BIOS. If you are unable to obtain a unwhitelist BIOS, I think it might be possible to bypass it with Tech Inferno Fan's Setup 1.x (may need confirmation as I haven't used it myself yet.)
      2.) Shutdown computer and remove all USB devices, ethernet cables, power cables, card reader cards.
      3.) Remove mPCIe wireless card and detach antennas.
       
       
      4.) Attach EXP GDC external mPCIe cable to the former wireless slot and screw down.
       
       
      5.) Attach HDMI end of the mPCIe cable adapter to the EXP GDC device.
       
       
      6.) Attach graphics card to the EXP GDC device (I moved my laptop off the desk and onto the side shelf to make room on the desk for the monitor/keyboard/mouse).
       
       
      7.) Using the power cable adapters that came with the EXP GDC device, I hooked in my ATX power supply's 20 pin and CPU 4 pin cables. Then hooked the other end (8 pin) into the EXP GDC device. My EVGA 750 Ti also required that I use an additional PCIe power cable (6 pin) in the top of the card.
       
       
       
       
       
      8.) Then I attached my misc devices (HDMI monitor, USB keyboard/mouse/wireless adapter), and hooked in my PSU and powered it on (below is image of final product, also moved HDMI cable out of the way).
       

       
      9.) Power on your computer and let it install the standard VGA drivers and then install your drivers (I didn't have to go in the BIOS for any graphics settings, which it doesn't have anyways, nor did I have to disable iGPU in Device Manager before the card was added).
       
      Extra Info:
      I found that most games will play on med settings with about 45 FPS with this particular card.
      BDO: Upscale on - Anti Aliasing on - SSAO off - med settings.
      Skyrim: Med-High settings.
      Fallout 4: Med settings.
