I've been using one of these for a while now with my NUC, and I never needed any grounding of any sort.

Do you guys know where can i find the mini version? I guess I'll try this out since my 8.5c beast keeps me letting me down stability wise...

Ok. I was here some time back, in early 2017, and then it's a big forum with a profound knowledges on topic.
I even was chatting with nando 🙂
so, I saw at the guide, about 7$ raiser, and I saw in mid-2017 several videos on success in it.

A bigger photo (from site)

SO, I was a big scared of beast blacklists and BPLUS pricing. But this is 7bucks solution that can probably work.
So this is what I ask:
First of all, I cannot understand, how pci-e signal can be transfered over usb3.0? it's 4 wires, I guess.
Second, I need to know, what I actually need to get it to work with gpu like 1060. I can test with this card 'cause my friend has it.
and then, on the link (photo) is this what I actually need to replace intel centrino wireless-N 100?
What else do I need to succeed?
I can afford nando's software, if I need this.

My system is asus k53sd (same mobo name) with core i7-2670qm, dgpu is nv610m, 8gb ram.
Thanks in advance.

On cabling.
Usual USB3.0 cable doesnt fit.
pinout is
1 -> 1
2 -> 2
3 -> 3
4 -> 4
5 -> 8
6 -> 9
7 -> 7
8 -> 5
9 -> 6

okay. I bought this one https://ru.aliexpress.com/item/PCIe-PCI-express-16X-Riser/32861648447.html
and tried to connect to asus k53sd.
I've used KFA2 1060 and psu.
The setup was next -- SATA power was connected to PSU SATA power, additional power was connected to 1060, rest cabling was in desktop. SO, first I turned on desktop. to make psu turned on. then I turned on laptop. Nothing happened.
Then I disconnected setup from laptop, and found that laptop is a bit bricked.
Once I try to turn it, first, only  power led, button (power led), battery led, and capslock led was on, black screen, no POST. After several tries to turn it on, diconnecting ram, disk, battery etc, holding pwr button without battery attached (battery is dead, btw) was just power led (and led under power button), caps lock and numlock. wifi led and disk led flash once.
I remember the same situation several years ago with this laptop.

So I brought riser and laptop to service center yesterday, they said they will test latop and riser. Said that maybe they'll try to bring it up with riser.
Hope they'll provide more information on problem when they figure it out.
SO. Have anyone faced this problem? And how solved?
Bet this is something wrong with BIOS or south bridge. And then BIOS.
And only with this particular model. There are successful build with K53SV, but no with K53SD. Wanted to be first 😀
Hardly I fried it up, there are no power pins connected to mPCIe slot. And everything is fine with graphics card.

I have an idea and problem and hope for community support.

1) can we use this for connecting egpu? https://ru.aliexpress.com/item/ALLOYSEED-B-M-M-2-NGFF-SSD-2/32853220388.html?spm=a2g0v.search0104.8.38.64f02c44aFtrVq&transAbTest=ae803_5
looks awesome.

2) problem.

As I posted before, my laptop kinda bricked last time I tried to connect egpu. BUT. the repairs cost like 4$. but I don't know actual problem. The repairer told that he "flashed bios -- nothing happened. then he removed all ram modules and tried them one by one. nothing happened." then, as he tells, inserted his HUNDREDPERCENTWORKING ram module and the laptop started working as nothing happened before. Then he placed my ram modules back again, and laptop was still working. he as well said that he tested riser, and tried to boot linux with it, the results -- with his 2gb ram module latop starts, starts booting into linux, then stucks somewhere in linux's boot process.  with my modules laptop dies. He presumed, like "it's probably south bridge problem, or different ram timings, or ram dies." The concrete reason is still unknown. I've read post about problem with error 12, but it doesnt seem the same case. I think it's ACPI_BIOS_ERROR, or something with it's handling. don't know.

Any help, please?

Is it possible to use the mini version with a Dell DA-2 PSU with a barrell jack ?

Can I connect this to a 2012 Mac Mini and a GTX950TI ?

OutOfStock for the mini now, when it will come back?

@jorgehardaway - Yes, you can use any 12v power supply with a barrel jack that is powerful enough. The 220W of the Dell should be sufficient for any card that has no additional power plug. If your card needs an additional power plug, then you'd need to mod the setup to provide the 6-pin/8-pin power connectors.

There is no GTX950Ti card in existence, however, so I am not clear which card you plan to use.

Hi I was just wondering before I buy anything I have bought a pic-e 1x to 16x riser boad for $7 NZD, any way I realised when I got it I needed mini pci to 16x pci-e instead. The board uses usb the connect it up. I was wondering if it would work if I get a mini pci with a female usb on it and use that instead of the 1x pci that I have now.

Here is the picture of my riser.

Here is the usb mini pci
