This is my first EXP GDC build. I've had this HP 8300 Small Form Factor (SFF) PC for about a year already. Originally I had installed a GTX 1050Ti, but I wanted to run VR on the machine and the 1050Ti simply didn't have enough horsepower to get me there. I found eGPU.io and decided to give in a try...

System Specs:
HP 8300 SFF, i7-3770 CPU @ 3.4Ghz, 16Gb RAM/250Gb SSD

eGPU Hardware:

20190309 200050
20190309 201121
20190309 201611

EXP-GDC v8.5 mPCIe version + MSI GTX 1070 Gamer X + Thermaltake 500 watt 80+ PSU + StarTech 1x PCIe to mPCIe adapter

Installation Steps:
1. Remove any dGPUs already in your HP 8300. Start your computer once with the monitor attached to the built-in display port. The Intel Graphics drivers should install by themselves if you're attached to the Internet.
2. Turn off the machine after adjusting your display.
3. Install the StarTech riser in the 1x slot on the motherboard.
4. Install the EXP-GDC mPCIe into the StarTech riser and run the cable out one of the other open slots.
5. Connect up your GPU, and PSU to the EXP GDC unit per instructions.
6. Fire it up! It just kind of works! Remember to run your monitor off the eGPU for best results.

Benchmark Results:
VRMark Orange Room - 6,873 (Super)
3DMark Timespy - 4,538

These numbers should enable me to run my Samsung Odyssey HMD. This is way better than my 1050Ti. I'll update later and let you know how it goes!

I checked GPU-Z and this setup is running PCIe 1x @ 2.0 speeds... Super stable...
