    If the antennas are used on a full height card, it'll accept a signal if you're using WWAN. I don't think the WLAN card will work in the WWAN slot, though. Might make the 8770W flip. Also that's fascinating... There's a Crucial branded one here but I wouldn't risk spending that much to test it. The other thing to note is chipset limitation, having more than 32gb might make the laptop flip out as well. Emphasis on might...

    I just got 4x 16GB RAM memory modules but can't get them to work.
    Once I insert the memory modules and I get a black screen on boot with CAPS lock flashing...

    Try running with 2 x 16GB?

    That's what I'm trying, even installing one by one the modules but still a black screen on boot.
    Didn't remove the memory modules under the keyboards. Shall I do that?

    Worth a try but can't guarantee if it'll help.

    -GTX 1070 won't run on non-UEFI OS with internal screen (must be DreamColor eDP in anyway)
    -8770W support max 4x8GB with the 4-slots MoBo version
    -2 HDD bays, DVD/BR and mSATA SSD

    Does the VBIOS have anything to do with this?

    No, Pascal based GPUs need eDP signal or Optimus enabled (the second is not supported by 8770W, eDP panel is the DreamColor only)

    I meant it not working on non-UEFI

    For eDP panel, UEFI is a must for 8770W, because of the lack of Optimus - for LVDS ordinary 1080p screen - Pascal GPU is a no go.
