m.2 to pcie x16 riser

 Share

I have a general idea to plug a pcie x16 adapter to the m.2 slot on the motherboard of my dell inspiron 11 3168 (where the wifi card usually is).

 

I have a couple questions:

1) would this work?

2) what pcie riser/adapter should I use?

i've seen somewhat questionable videos on youtube that show this working, never done it myself.

 

why not just make do with potentially ssd to replace the standard harddrive i'm sure is in there?

I already replaced the hard drive with a 128gb ssd, and besides there's not enough room for an ssd. 

 

I wanted to use this as a way to connect a gpu to my laptop for when I travel

nevermind, the video you sent has a link: 

https://trickiknow.com/external-graphics-card-for-laptop-egpu-setup-guide/

 

that leads you to a website, and when you scroll down there are different adapter options

 

thanks for the help!
