@akmal_jihad_almascatypce164p-n03 is more reliable than EXP GDC at Gen2 link speeds. It’s cheaper too. However you do not get a CTD/PTD switch so if that is important to you consider the EXP GDC:

What ctd/ptd switch function actually? I turn off that thing and my setup still work. I interested with that pce164p-no3 because it’s cheaper. I’ve tried exp gdc from my friend, and it’s work without any problem, just plug n install driver. I’m wondering if this pce164p-no3 will work that way. And this pce164p-no3 will be better if i want to bring my laptop outside, cause i can unplug the usb in mpcie slot without disassemble it like exp gdc. So, what do you think?

by the way, thanks for the answer 😀

I had an exp gdc last time with gtx550. I plugged it into my laptop but it doesn't seem to detect. I plug the power supply wrongly and the exp gdc seems to be fried I think.

When I tried it on my laptop, the gpu doesn't seem to run. I didn't have much resource, just based on youtube. I just found out about this forum

If I were to get one, which cable should I get for Alienware m14x r1? NRFF cable ot the mpciE cable. Hope to get some feedback, thanks

I have lenovo z50-70 with cpu intel i7-4510u and gpu gt840m. What graphics card pays to buy using GPU to use the full capacity?

Is it worth buying gtx 960 or something better? I would like to use eGPU with expresscard.

I was thinking of an EXP GDC beast for my g3 and a 2070. Has something like this been done? Is it possible? Also, I was wondering if there is a way to use the beast without taking the back cover off, like a hole cut in the chassis.

Cheers!

Hello

I recently bought a HP Probook 430 g5 used for a really decent price.

It has a i5 8250u 8th gen CPU and a 256gb m.2 nvme ssd. 

It doesn't look like it has thunderbolt, but it does have a usb-c connector that can charge.

 

Would it be possible to remove the m.2 nvme ssd and put a GPU in that slot, and just boot windows off a 128gb Usb stick I have. 

 

Here are the specs to the machine. 

https://www.umart.com.au/HP-ProBook-430-G5-13-3in-HD-i5-8250U-256GB-SSD-Laptop--2WJ89PA_41171G.html

Any input would be appreciated. I'm planning on using my spare GTX 670 with my GDC EXP 8.0 and my DA-2 power supply. 

If it is possible to use the m.2 ssd slot, what device should I purchase?

Hey mate

 

Did you end up testing this on the m.2 slot? I have a HP 430 G5 and I want to try eGPU by taking out the m.2 nvme SSD, but need some advice on what adapter to buy, like you mentioned the EXP GDC ones are expensive..

 

Also, judging by your username, you happen to have a 2jz? I own a 1993 Toyota Supra RZ 2jz-gte 🙂

Wow, I haven't used this forum in 2 years, just got an email that I was mentioned in a post.

I believe I tried a generic chinese m.2 adapater and was never able to get it to work. Not sure if it was something with the port/bios or with the adapater it self. I also only managed to use eGPU with my 640 G1 once. I tried to re-do it few months later after a Windows re-install and never managed to bypass Error 43. Few months later I also tried with a GTX 970 and never was able to pass Error 43. I exchanged emails with Nando probably for two weeks, trying over 100's different things and was never able to bypass Error 43 until he ran out of ideas and so did I. It's possible I just got lucky the first time.

Also, I own a 2JZ Swapped 1989 Nissan S13 Hatch, which why I have a 2JZ in my name.

Oooo nice mate. Haha sorry to bother you. Just getting into the eGPU stuff.

I had an old work laptop (Lenovo Yoga S1) and tried to plug my EXP GDC Beast to the wlan slot (mpcie), but it must have a whitelist because it just boots into a black screen.

So I installed the gpu setup 1.35 and ran that, but it still wasn't getting detected. I then put back the original wlan card and hotswapped the mcpie cable while I was in setup 1.35, and smoke started coming off the motherboard and I got scared and stopped lol.

That work laptop is still working fine, not sure where the smoke came from, but it scared the shit out of me haha. 

 

Because of that experience, I bought a HP Probook 430 g5, and thought I might have better luck, but didn't realise the wlan card is ngff not mpcie, so I'm waiting now for a new EXP GDC ngff cable to arrive so I can try, and hope it doesn't have a whitelist.

Then I thought, maybe even if there is a whitelist, I could use the m.2 port and take out the ssd and use a USB stick for Windows. That's when I found your post lol. 

 

What mods you got on your car?

I've got State 4 highflowed CT20s, 650cc injectors, fmic, walbro 460 fp, powerfc ecu. Making 450hp on a safe tune, use it as my daily lol.

Hi there, 

On the topic posted here, nando4 mentioned riser card on aliexpress. I just would like to ask, is this riser card from aliexpress the same from this lazada's riser card?

I bought an open boxed hp pavilion 590-a0019 AMD A9-9425 desktop from best buy on 2/9/2020. And I was wondering if I should just try and return or if I can do a egpu.

This is the motherboard in the computer HP Desktop PCs - motherboard specifications, Clivia-A9 .

It has two m.2 slots 1 for M.2 socket 1, 2230 type for WLAN this m/2 slot is already occupied. And a  M.2 socket 3, 2280 type for SSD

also here if i am correct the product specifications for the computer HP Pavilion 590-a0019 Product Specifications .

I did ask on another site but they didn't really specify how to to tell if my m.2 exposes PCIe lanes instead of SATA connectivity. But I opened up the desktop and looked at the m.2 slot and the mother board says m.2 sata ssd. Does that mean that I can't use my m.2 sata ssd slot for a egpu?
