Hi!

I am a new user. I have been reading much posts and I think that I am gong to try the EGPU project (the "model cheaper").

My port is a mini PCIe WLAN, and I have seen the mPCIe eGPU adapter [PCE164P-N03], but I have a doubt. This adapter has a “input power version to supply the 12V/75W slot power”, this is like that with every the three slot type (4-pin, 6-pin or DC jack) or only with the DC jack?
Therefore if the external GPU has a upper power consumption, is necessary to connect the GPU to the PSU with an aux power entry.

The other model adapter [PCE164P-N06] has three slots power in the board (SATA, 6-pin, 4-pin). If necessary more power (example 135W), is possible connect several slots power at the same time, o this adapter model only can use one of the three slot option (only option every time). Do you know the input power limit to this adapter?

Thanks!

PD. I have found this "1. 4pin, 6pin and 15Pin SATA Molex power interface Integrated on the PCB, only one power input is needed. Please DO NOT try to plug 2 or 3 power interface simultaneously!" in ( https://medicis.io/eshop/produit/carte-riser-4pin-6pin-sata-3in1-pci-e-pci-express-1x-to-16x/ )

Anyone know another site that sells NGFF M.2 Key A/E to USB 3.0? This site does not ship to the US it seems Cry

@TheFallen, this is the only site with a A/E cable for this US$7 eGPU adapter.  The workaround then is to buy a EXP GDC or ADT-Link A/E adapter as linked .

Ah... I see. That's unfortunate.
They seem to not be responding to their email either  Cry

Would anyone be able to get their hands on this? I'll pay $10 including shipping for it!

Hey all. I have an Intel NUC5i5RYH sitting around and planned to make a gaming setup out of it. I was planning on using an EXP GDC Beast v9.0b etc. but saw this option which is much much cheaper and easier to get. So if I understand this right I need an X16 riser card with USB 3.0 and an M.2 NGFF to USB 3.0 cable. Is that right?

I plan on running an affordable GPU that does not require external power. If I were to use a 750ti (just to throw a card out there) would I just need a DC power supply to power the riser?

hey Guys,
very fast question. Is it possible that the adapter needs some sort of grounding? that's because everytime I connect the the motherboard to the egpu trhought the usb cable my monitor flashes and then I get an error in my Dyi setup 1.35 or a stuck device manager if I'm on windows 10.
I'm using the 6pin adapter with the dell 220w psu using the staple technique bridge

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 Smile
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
