Hi... i'm trying  to use R43 SL with Zotac GTX 1060 mini 6GB  to connect with my intel Nuc7i7bnh. I'm using 500 W power supply, the fan at GPU is work, but so far nothing display adapter detected in my device manager..  Please help me.. any idea how to solve this problem? i think it should work just like @pogz did... 

my intel nuc 7i7bnh + zotac gtx 1060 mini 6gb

Dell machines are forgiving in terms of having another display adapter. If I remember correctly, there is a setting on the bios to automatically switch display adapter. I dont know how this is implemented on a NUC. I did some Googling and found this: https://www.reddit.com/r/eGPU/comments/5yaccm/skull_canyon_beast_gdc_m2_working/ my assumption is that NUCs are the same BIOS settings wise. Based from his instructions, he uninstalled the internal 530 drivers after installing the drivers for the external card.

As I quote: 

Only small problems I had was to get the Skull Canyon to recognize the eGPU once everything was assembled. I uninstalled the drivers and removed the dGPU in settings and with some trial and error it now works. Unfortunately I did not find a setting on the SC bios that allowed me to turn off the dGPU.

Not sure if allowed to cross post but I've planned to let go of the adapters I used in this: https://egpu.io/forums/for-sale-wanted/ph-fs-php-2500-adt-r43sl-bracket-psu-switch/

Hey there! I'm kinda noob about EGPU! Can you help me?

I was planning to buy a ADT-Link R43SG (M.2 x4) but idk if my laptop can use it (Acer Aspire A515-51G-58VH). The laptop have a SSD port that supports M.2 NVME. There should I install the EGPU?


Does it work with GTX 1660? A Corsair VS500 500W need to make the paperclip trick?
TY anyway...

It might work as you've stated that its an NVME port. But again, port compatibility doesnt guarantee that it would work. You can check if someone already did a build with your machine on the Builds section.

You might need to uninstall the default on board drivers. 

Sorry cant provide much information.

I'm trying with the ADT-Link R43SG and a 3040 micro, but I'm noticing a fit and length issue with both m2 adapter and m2 interface.  I'm assuming I need to purchase the M2 AE, the r53sg?  I looked at your gdc exp beast setup with the 3040, but I wanted the adt link instead.  Not sure which way to go anymore and if my purchase of the ADT-Link R43SG ended up being a waste and unusable on the 3040.  I don't have that secondary M2 port that's available on the 3050..

Sorry a newb at this..

@bonger If it's A+E then get the R53SG or keep the R43SG and connect it using a R54SF. 

There's one build guide for the 3040 but it doesn't mention what M.2 key is used for the NGFF connector. H2D and D2H speeds show less than 500 MB/s so it's probably not key M (socket 3: NVMe, AHCI; PCIe x4) or key B (socket 2: SATA; PCIe x2). It's probably key A+E (Socket 1: WiFi; PCIe x1). The 3040M manual says "M.2 socket1 connector" which is for WiFi which uses key A+E. In the System Board layout picture, it looks like the socket uses key A (key B would be slightly closer to the middle).
https://topics-cdn.dell.com/pdf/optiplex-3040m-desktop_Owners-Manual2_en-us.pdf
The System Board layout picture seems to show an unlabeled M.2 socket 3 connector next to the hard drive connector. The socket 3 connector would give better GPU performance if you're not using an NVMe drive. Does your 3040 have the socket 3 connector? Are you using an NVMe drive?

Mac mini (2018), Mac Pro (Early 2008), MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015), GA-Z170X-Gaming 7, Sapphire Pulse Radeon RX 580 8GB GDDR5, Sonnet Echo Express III-D, Trebleet Thunderbolt 3 to NVMe M.2 case

Thank you for your reply.  Unfortunately for me on the 3040 board, that socket 3 connector is not there.  I'll look into the r54sf connector as trying to find a r53sg for sale has been a lot more difficult to find.

I have a 3040 build guide here: https://egpu.io/forums/builds/dell-optiplex-3040m-gtx1060-6gb-exp-gdc-8-5c-win10/ my 3040 did not have an NMVE slot thus I can only use the NGFF connector which is slower. 

On the Dell website I see that there were variants with NVME slots and if you check your board, you can see a provision but no slot. I think there were models which had, and others which had none.

@pogz, @nando4 - I'm more or less in the same shoes, but have just upgraded my 3050 i3-7100T (2C/4T) to a 3070 i5-9500T (6C/6T) at no cost.

 

I do not play games other than chess, but will use the Optiplex for minimal video editing. So my dilemma is:

A.) Shall I give up the NVME SSD M.2 slot for a 32Gbps eGPU solution or

B.) Just use the onboard wifi NGFF port for an 1x PCI express 3.0 (8Gbps) connection. They say a GTX 1060 is the optimal card for this.

 

I will most probably get a modular PSU to minimize cables and which I'll be able to use in a mini-ITX build if I decide to go that way later, but was thinking if a 130W dell PSU (or even 90W) would cut it for some of those 75W max 1650 cards.

 

Can you please confirm if I should get 8Gbps by using ADT Link R53 as well as via the EXP GDC?

Ciforia used the ADT in his build at: https://egpu.io/forums/builds/need-help-on-hp-prodesk-mini-600g2-adt-r43sl-gtx-1050-ti-windows-10-x64/

But I see 4Gbps with Pogz's EXP GDC 8.5 builds.

 

Thank you!
