@aurumnus Yes I think that is an HDMI port indeed, but pretty sure it's not compatible with standard HDMI. It's just using the cable / connectors becauses they are well shielded and readily available I think. As far as I understand it (which is pretty limited still), ExpressCard is a form of PCIE interface, so the trick is wiring up the pins of the GPU PCIE slot to the right pins of the ExpressCard slot, and to try to do it with best shielding as possible for the best bit rates. I've seen USB, HDMI and DisplayPort cables used because they come with good shielding.

I ordered the ExpressCard board that diyman made a long time ago but it never arrived, I'll try to order it again with a different supplier this time. Still eager to give this a try

 

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.

Will it be possible to only buy the EXP GDC Express Cable , cut the cable in one end, solder a USB A Male Plug Connector ( https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1624475854.html ) to it and then connect it that way to PCI-E Riser PCE164P-N03?
