    It might work but wont be P&P. The card is taller than standard cards, which means you'll have to ditch the secondary HDD/SSD. A power connector is needed, and a custom heatsink. Also the price will be astronomical.

    Yeah, I know is taller but you know... I never use the dvd drive and a caddy will solve that (1tb ssd/2tb+2tb hd). About the power it could be solved as people do on aw18, the heatsink is a pain in the a... the price, we should ask.

    I am curious as well if anyone has tried this yet? Perhaps in a Clevo? I recently upgraded to a 1060 and can only assume this will work also.

    I tried that card. There is a thread. Spoiler. I got it to work but there is a vbios problem. I tried maybe 20 vbioses. The card installed but stuttered and ran at as low as 3 fps under load. It ran like it was power starved.
