    Doesn‘t matter.
    Both have reduced amount of VRMs and is lottery if they‘ll survive prolonged gaming sessions. Just make sure to provide good cooling solution, thermal pads and compound.

    This is the best 1070 you can get:

    Can I install it in an M17x R4?

    It seems yes but by modifying the chassis.

    Do you think its ID is 1BA1 or 1BE1?

    It is 1BE1 most probably and you need to mod the chassis a bit, yes...
    Bit it is really the best MXM out there.

    Full range of VRMs amount, overdesigned PCB, very good inductor's and VRM's quality. Holds up to 140W TDP without any problem (if you have good cooling you can aim for even more than 150W)
    The best MXM GTX1070 out there.

    I found this other card from the seller you advised me.

    https://fr.aliexpress.com/item/1005...68#1000022185#1000066058#0_668#3468#15613#439


    Is there any difference?


    Visually these GPUs are identical but the description seems to indicate that the last one is made for other MSI model.

    Can I buy the choice you gave me initially, or do I have to pay attention to something else?


    thank you in advance

    Both will work without problems!
    As long as you get MSi 1070, you are good to go for the long run.

    The MSI 1070 v1.2 PCB from the GT73VR/GT75VR?

    That card can handle 200W TDP sustained, if you mod the bios with the pascal editor, then flash it with a hardware programmer + the REQUIRED 1.8v adapter (Just make sure you upgrade the pads to something nice and wonderful like Thermalright Odyssey 12.8 w/mk pads, but Arctic's 6 w/mk pads will work fine and be better than anything stock.

    The only issue is if the laptop will accept 200W from the video card (most MSI laptops will require changing a value in the EC RAM register to avoid CPU throttle).

    Ver. 1.0 is in my case. There is no difference between ver. 1.0 and 1.2

    1.0 has the crash bug on some systems if voltage exceeds 1.0v. This is a hardware flaw on the PCB. There was a vbios released by MSI to limit max voltage to 0.875v for this version.

    This was fixed in v1.2.
