Hi! I'm a guy from Germany and i have a Dell L502X from 2011

Still a great and powerful machine with enough RAM and SSD, except: The DGPU and IGPU so now a EGPU 😉

I have a very similar Setup als Himansh512 in this thread:

https://egpu.io/forums/builds/2011-15-6-dell-xps-15-l502x-gtx-1060-3gb-oc2gbps-mpcieexp-gdc-v8-4d-win-7-professional-64-bit/#post-2458

Dell XPS L502

Intel i7 2670QM Quad Core @ 2,2 GHZ (3,1 GHZ Turboboost)

10GB RAM

256 GB SAMSUNG PRO SD

1TB HDD

The EGPU i will use is the ZOTEC GTX 1060 AMP! Edition...

I want to get it to run on my internal and external Display!

I have a EXP GDC 8.0 and i connect trough Mini PCI-E...

 

Also i had a great idea! This is for shure interesting for all of you!

Iwill mount a HDMI female to female in my laptop later if i got it working, so i can connect the BEAST cable within the laptop

and another HDMI calbe from the female to female to the BEAST... I hope this will work and i can get this long

beast cable completely in my DELL.... would be awesome to connect the BEAST and my ZOTEC just lie any other device... 🙂

Also the cable which came with the BEAST is very crappy... i don't want to bend to often so if i can mount this into my device

also the cable will not be bend and i can just use a slim HDMI cable....

 EDIT: Tried different HDMI cables even an 0.2 meter long.... THE BEAST does noch work with any extension....

Next attempt is to cut the cable in half an mount an 4-10 pin (how many signal lines has this cable ?) plug so i can plug and unplugg without

a cable hangig out of my L502x....

The main thing i want to do with this Laptop is Video Editing and Wii U and Wii Emulation...

+ some new games some times.....

So i will follow the guide from Himansh512 and report back with pictures from the female to female portmod...

 

Greetings from Germany

DONE!

This is how i did it:

More about the case and the solution for the cable management soon to come.

Also i will make video about a 8 Dollar device which is just as good as THE BEAST!

Hi GermanGuy,

I have dell xps l502x with following configuration:
1. Intel i7 2630QM Quad Core
2. 8GB RAM
3. Nvidia GT540M
4. 1TB HDD

The problem is that currently my laptop is Dual Boot (Ubuntu + Windows 10)
Does that change any of the procedures mentioned for e-gpu setup? 
I am exploring whether I should buy new laptop or try e-gpu setup. Any pointers will be helpful.
