So before I buy this 4790s can anyone confirm if a 5775c works or not?

Hey guys
Love the work you guys gave done with the eGPU setup but it's way beyond my capabilities.
Saying that I'm excited about the Alpha R2, yeah it's a bit more expensive but they also say it boost performance over 60% than the first gen Alpha. NICE!
Glad its compatible with the Graphic Amplifier so it's a bit more future proof, someone mentioned a Zotac system with 980 if you can provide a link it would be wonderful ( all I get is desktop GPU's when looking....lol)
Just want to keep all my options open but I'm pretty sure I'm getting a AR2 and maybe a GA down the road if needed.

If it's the same socket there's no reason it shouldn't.

There was a dude on reddit who tried it. But he said the pc wasn't booting. I private messaged him asking if he got it to work in the end.




In other news:

Apparently the Alpha R2's CPU is soldered on :/

I think it was a mistaken statement - if you look at the video (the high quality version) there's clearly a standard socket underneath the heatsink. In other words, CPU isn't soldered on - the GPU still is though.

I have the newer model alienware alpha with i3 @3.2 ghz, does this model still have a port where the wifi is to upgrade the GPU externally?

So from what I've read a 54w i3 4170 runs at full speed. Does anyone have experience with S type processors? I'm specifically looking at a 4590S or 4690S. They are a 65W part, I'm really into Forza 6: Apex and its absolutely crushing this poor little 4130T. I guess I would have to go 4690T if the S is going to downclock too much, but I cant find any solid numbers of what to expect with an S.

I ran a 4170 for months and recently replaced with a 4590S. Both parts run at full speed. The only time a S series processor down clocks is during synthetic benchmarks like p95.
