Hi all! First HAPPY NEW YEAR to all.

So i was reading the first post where it’s explain about setting the delay and whatever is there doesn’t match what i have on my adapter.My laptop is ASUS and i know i have to use the delay so can somebody explain by looking at the picture how to do it.Also on the picture the part with the yellow arrow it says “FORCE POWER ON”,do i need to get a jumper for that to connect it or it’s should be ok the way it is? Thank you all for the help !!!!

J1 FORCE POWER ON disables eGPU on/off power management and instead give constant power. It is advised you install a jumper onto J1. This is the same as jumpering the green-black leads on your ATX PSU

You have SW1 and SW2 little slider switches to set delays. Useful to bypass BIOS detection of the eGPU.

SW1 – PERST# delay

1 – no delay
2 – 9.8s delay
3 – 14.8s delay

SW2 – CLKRUN delay

1 – no delay
2- 11.97s delay
3 – 16.9s delay

 

How to move the SW1 and SW2 slider switch?

You can see the tiny stalk, the slider switch, that sticks out of positions SW1 and SW2. Positon a flat blade screwdriver against that stalk and push left to move from position 1 to 2 to 3 as required. Push right to move back from position 3 to 2 to 1 as required.

nando4 thank you for the info i’ll see if i can find jumper tomorrow,so again i have ASUS A53SV Laptop and connection will be mPCI-e.Any idea where to set the slider on SW1 and SW2 in case my laptop don’t detect the GPU?

I’m thinking ahead here,so by installing a jumper and force the power on to the eGPU does that mean that every time when i turn off my laptop the eGPU won’t turn off and i have to do it manually from the PSU? At least that’s how it sounds to me,i’m new at this,still gathering the hardware and with all those noob questions trying to prevent future headaches,apologies. At least got the jumper today and PSU(EVGA 430W) which came defective,didn’t even start,will return tomorrow and continue with the endeavor  🙂

And one more “think ahead” question: what are the steps to install the driver for the eGPU,like before i even connected it or first to see if the system will recognize it and after removing  the dGPU driver or….will wait for you to tell me i guess 🙂

nando4 i just check my TOLUD today and the last PCI Express Root with 8 digits is showing AFA00000=2.5

Intel(R) HD Graphics 3000 showing B0000000=2.75. Looks like there is enough memory for the eGPU to run,my question is in this case is there any benefit to alocate large memory trough your setup or just to skip that step when the time comes? Thank you for your help !!!

@dani23m, would you mind starting a new thread related to your system? The last two posts are unrelated to the thread topic.
