Yes, it runs normal with 16GB RAM without 100% CPU usage, when the PE4H v3.2b adapter is not connected to my X230.

This 100% CPU usage issue with 16GB RAM and connected PE4H happens also under linux (tested with Debian, Ubuntu and openSUSE), so it's a OS-independent issue.

Hello, I was just wondering if any headway has been made on this issue, seeing as it's been a few monts since the last post from  what I can tell. I wish to purchase a X230t this holiday and I was wondering whether I'd have to sacrifice the ability to use an eGPU if I were to get 16GB RAM and vice-versa. Thanks!

I was wondering as well. I remembered that the Thinkpad has some problem with 16gb configuration so I am coming here to check out if the problem is solved. I own X230t and want to upgrad ram this BF.

Old thread, but I wanted to know if you have tried booting linux with the pcie=nocrs kernel parameter.

It works. Mine is 16GB ram + eGPU Radeon Shappire 7950. Works like a charm.

Hi campanella,

 

I've T430 with 16GB RAM, when I boot with eGPU then I still get 100% CPU load on Windows 8.1 OS. Do you know if there's any solution for this issue? If not then we still need to wait for BIOS update...

Hi there

Sorry for "necroposting", but I am really interested - did anything changed for the last five years? Lots of bios updates, last one - in july 2019. 

I own x230t-3520m with 16 gb ram, and now i need egpu to speed up video rendering. 

Does 16 Gb ram problem still exist or it was fixed in one of bios updates?
