Hi Ohthatgaryko,

No worries... Hope this helps. 

I followed some of the implementation guides on this forum page and Dave2D. It was basically trial and error until I figured it out. I have not loaded any custom software and or had issues with DSDT. Here are my steps. Noob style....

 

  1. Fresh install of Windows 10 
    1. I did buy a activation code. I am not certain if it made the difference but I was not able to get it to work with the free version. Plus it gives me more control of the UI. 
  2. Update to latest Windows version and update any Apple Bootcamp software. 
  3. Connect the Core 
    1. Let Synapse install completely
  4. Download Nvidia GeForce Experience
    1. Then install the latest driver for the GPU in the Core (install this process whether the latest driver is already installed)
    2. I was not able to install the driver directly. The driver would only take after GeForces was installed. 
  5. Go to Device by Connection and disable (A129)
  6. This is where it is a little tricky...
    1. Go to the PCI Bridge above the external GPU and disable. You will hear an error sound. Then enable the same PCI Bridge. 
    2. This step I do every time. Not ideal but a minimal step. 
  7. Then reboot. Then one of three things happens. The third option has become the standard in the last week.
    1. External monitor turns on,  MBP screen turns off, and I'm golden  
    2. Nothing happens and I reboot. Windows boot logo freezes on MBP screen. Monitor turns on and I am golden. 
    3. Complete the reboot and nothing happens. I unplug and then plug back in the Core. I am golden. This third option allows me to hot plug the Core, put the system to sleep overnight and is pretty cool. 
  8. Thats it. 
  9. Update - Please Read.... I am able to now disable and enable the Titan in the Device Manager under Display Adapters. This allowed both screens to be active throughout the session. In this set up the Titan will drive both screens. 

 

I am trying the Core's USB and ethernet ports this week. I will post if successful. Ideally, I will be able to plug one cable in and all the other peripherals are connected to the Core.

You want me to post again? What portion? How can I help?

 

By the way... I hit a 6800 plus on a recent 3DMark Ultra score. I had trouble posting the pic.

Ha, I just wanted some more shots of the system to be honest as it's a high end set up and looks beautiful...
