Csupati Posted January 13 Share Posted January 13 Hi, i've decided to go with egpu instead of MXM , because MXM is end of life unfortunetly. But the Alienware and graphics amplifier are still working in 2023. My goal was a fairly cheap setup with the possible highest perfomance that i can get with fairly cheap. So the basic machine is the 13 R3 with I7-6700HQ , 1060 mobile , 16gb 2333 mhhz ram , 2x512gb SSD , FHD display ( i missed the qhd oled 😞 ) . I have read that AGA only support 20XX and RX 4XX/5XX , some of the retail coolers will fit , but 3 slots are not , watercooling is not and option unless you cut the AGA. So i decided to go with a reference 5700XT , someone says its not gonna work because of the pcie 4.0 support, someone says every gpu works as long as it fits. So i tryed my luck with a ref 5700xt and its works as it shoud be. From the AGA i removed the original very loud fan, still didnt replaced it so add that to the termals. The CPU got a liquid metal , the laptop has been previuosly upgraded with the 1070 3 pipe heatsink. Maybe further VGA-s will be tested as long as the budget goes. Starts right up, but untill you didnt intall the driver the card dosent give display(hdmi with a monitor ,no internal lcd was used). After driver install (no mods ,nothing needed to install) its works. The CPU goes 3.1GHZ allcore max 72C . A 3X 120mm vent modded Notepal u3 is under the 13R3 . 2 Clevo P751TM1-G \I9-9900@ 3.1ghz 45W\32GB 2666 mhz ramkit\RTX 2080 150W\ 2X500GB nvme SSD's\4K Sharp IGZO screen\ Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
