    I'm wondering If its possible crossflash a vbios from another 1070M. I have the HP 1070 rated at 115W and Would like to see if its possible to flash a vbios such as the MSI one which the power limit is 150W. I know it wouldn't be safe to go up 35W on a card rated for 115W.

    Power limit on the msi is 115w, not 150w. Not sure why those eBay listing keep stating 150w.

    Going to need to use a programmer to raise the limit.

    Because its overbuilt, it can handle 175+ TDP basically plays like a 1070Ti

    All other cards have flaws but at 115w arent really an issue.

    You need a programmer to flash any 10 series cards.

    Also, don't flash any higher TDP vBIOS on the standard mxm3.0b format cards. They cannot handle higher TDP and are already fragile as is.

    The MSI 1070 is bigger and build better so it can handle the higher TDP.

    Can I for example flash a black pcb 1070 mxm (the ones from ebay) (found one with Gsync link), to a lowered tdp clevo vbios (lower the tdp to 115w with the tdp tweaker and flash it with programer).
    Will that make gsynk work on a p870dmg for example?

    If the clevo laptop cant read from the sensors it will not post at all iirc.

    I believe the msi cards have a higher rate of success. I seem to remember a member here using the msi 1070 on the dm-g

    You can look for it in the Pascal vBIOS modding thread
