    Can buy them from taobao, aliexpress, maybe amazon?, and yes ebay. You should be able to reuse the 100W heatsink

    I would assume not, otherwise I would probably know what you're talking about. I don't think I've seen it in my M18 R2 either

    Essentially, it might need a heatsink mod depending a card you get, but I believe a 980M is straight PnP

    The GT75 VR (or whatever they're calling it now a days) has its MXM card posted somewhere, and Clevo is sticking to their 3.1 B+ standard
