Thanks Nando.  I've downclocked my GPU and switched to Gen1.  I've plugged my PSU into its own outlet. I will see what I can do about the cable if you think that's the source of the failure. Thanks again

Hi, I have tried for a few days to get the eGPU connected to my laptop. I have read a lots of topics and I still have a problem.

First, my eGPU is working only when I boot with wifi card installed and after this, sleep mode and plug in egpu. All is working and after installing the driver, the system requires a restart.

-When I press OK it`s shutting down and remains black screen. 

-When I Shut down and power on manually, is not recognize my egpu again and the driver installation is not completed so I have to install again. Have anyone an idea about this issue?

Do I need a DIY eGPU?

 Thanks

Hi all,

I have issues with my EXP GDC 8.0

It has been working right with a XFX Radeon HD 5850 Black Edition 1Gb (exp gdc switches on factory positions).

Today I tried a MSI GTX 1060 GAMING X 3Gb (combining switches on all available combinations) and i'm getting a black screen with the loading animation of Windows 10.

System specs are:

  • ASUS K55VD
    • Intel Core i7-3610QM
    • 2 x 8 Gb DDR3-1600 / PC3-12800 DDR3
    • iGPU: Intel HD Graphics 4000 (enabled)
    • dGPU: NVIDIA GeForce 610M (disabled)
    • Windows 10
  • PSU: Corsair RM650X
  • EXP GDC 8.0 mPCI-E + MSI GTX 1060 GAMING X 3Gb (372.70 drivers)

Hope someone can throw a bit of light to my setup to get it working again!

Is it normal for the mPCIE slot to be 2.0/3.0? On my laptop it's shows 3.0 but when i click my egpu card under it, it shows at 1.1. I have no clue if an actual 3.0 card will stay 1.1 if i tried it. My HD5450 has a 2.1 bus.

@thegameplayer, use GPU-Z and click the "?" next to bus interface to do a render test. It will show the max link speed under load. Your 6th gen i-core has Gen3 capable PCH PCIe ports.

@nando4, I disabled the iGPU and dGPU inside device manager and ran GPU-z but it's still at 1.1.

Is this because of my bios? There is no option for changing PCIe anything.

If you look at the "Bus Interface" part, you will see that it says PCIe x16 1.1 @x1 1.1

The orange is what the GPU itself supports, the magenta is what your laptop is currently running it at.

Even if you laptop supports 3.0, it will not run at 3.0 if the GPU supports only 1.1. You could try a newer GPU that has PCIe 3.0 support.

Altough, when I look at the gpu-z images of the HD5450 on google images, I can see that it supports 2.0 in most cases. Could be that your specific model of HD5450 oddly supports only 1.1 or there is some other weird mismatch.

Incase of the laptop having it locked to 1.1 in bios (which is not the case as HWinfo shows it having 3.0 capable pcie) or incase of a broken connector cable, it would still show the designed bus interface for the GPU correctly.

@tauio111, thanks for the insight. I have this model:  https://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102882

It says 2.1 so i'm not sure whats going on.

I wish I had a 3.0 card with me to try and see if that's going to work better.

In hwinfo, the wifi card also ran at 1.1 before i took it out and the other pcie slot is for the ethernet port running at 1.1 also.

This is the adapter i'm using: https://world.taobao.com/item/548352185850.htm?

It's also on max performance mode and not power saver.

EDIT: I checked on my old computer and the gpu shows x16 2.0 @ x16 2.0. So theres something wrong in my laptop.

Refer to the nvidia thread. For first you will need to have hotplug enabled for the pci slot through bios if you want to run newer nvidia cards.

WLAN and ethernet rarely come in 2.0/3.0. 1.1 is normal for those. For me the only things running at above 1.1 are the eGPU and the USB 3.0 XHCI controller for example, both of which have an actual need for 5GT/s.

Afaik the firmware of the pci-e device indicates its maximum pci lane width/version. The fact that the indicated card pci-e version differs on different host machines is beyond me. It should not be caused by the adapter.
