    Nvidia GPU Card on NUC5i3RYH using M.2 to PCIE Adapter


      I have been trying to install a Nvidia GPU card on NUC5i3RYH.


      Learned from NUC with external GPU - Album on Imgur that it can be done, yet my card is not detected on NUC5i3RYH.


      Tried with different PCIE cards and the results are the same: not detected.


      Wondering if there's any BIOS versions or BIOS settings that I should pay attention to? I'm using the latest one 0354 (Download BIOS Update [RYBDWi35.86A]).


      I'm not using bplus's P4SM2 (PCIe X4 to M.2 Adapter), but another one:



      This adapter is tested on a desktop MB's M.2 interface. It works.


      The x4 to x16 cable I used is this one:



      Don't know why my PCIE card is not detected on NUC5i3RYH while all of the components (adapter, pcie cable and pcie cards) are tested OK.


      Is there any compatibility issue on the M.2 interface on NUC5i3RYH that it may not be fully compatible with PCIE x4? Any comments would help!
