@j_chaina , can you please link me where you purchased adapter 1? That one has a USB 3.0 connector on the PCIe and mPCIe adapters. As there are flat USB 3.0 cables it gives greater underside threading in tight spots capacity than adapter 2 that has a mini-USB end.

oh sorry my picture is misleading: i got two risers from amazon:
No1
https://tinyurl.com/y9ejwytr

No2
https://tinyurl.com/y7or4fg6

...and i also got this adapter on ebay:
https://tinyurl.com/y85curuj
(i dont know if i can use this adapter for my modding?!)

(both risers work so far that the GPU is running on it with a 430w psu; but my thinkpad t430 wont reconize the egpu through minipci - tried it all; with gdc beast v8.0 expresscard it works all fine, but only with gen1 - this is why i want to mod to express card like in this thread) - i will post my complete build guide later.

Oh I see. This adapter wires the USB lines to the USB cable. As PCIe wires required for an eGPU are not being wired through, it does not make a good adapter candidate for modding.

Yes. @diyman mods No2 in the opening post.

Your mpcie adapter with green PCB, only a mPCI-e to USB adater.
With this can you plug a wireless mouse recevier into this usb socket.
This use a circuit to make 5V from 3.3V.
The adapter with blue PCB has mini-B USB, but with custom wiring for x16 to x1 risers.

The green is not good for the mod, only the blue.  😐 

I have a plan with usb Type-C connecting, but it's need a lot of soldering...  🙂

thanks for the fast reply-
yea i also thought so..the green is only for normal usb stuff!

The blue one doesnt have the WAKE bridge. like yours. so i dont need to solder bottom mpci-e pin2 to WAKE pin on the express card?

i like soldering  😉
