    Hey @Striker1234 ... well to start with I want to say THANK YOU! for sharing your experience with all of your project. I just re bought an M17x R4 and was about to buy an MSI gtx 1060 but because I of a transaction issue I then read your posts about the Zotac 1070 I changed my mind and bought it hopefully it works. Youre the man of the month!

    Once I get the card Ill do a full write up of the project with the R4 . To help users bring them back from the past.

    I would love to make a few questions that way im not all stressed out while the card comes if someone can help out I promise ill come back with a kick ass video review when done.

    Do you have to flash an msi, NO Gsync enabled card to get signal from the 120hz 3d edp display?

    How many watts is the stock Zotac and how many is it running on with the MSI flash?

    Is it exactly the same standard size as the msi gtx 1060 (105mm x 82mm?


    Throttle?
    Thanks a bunch guys!!

    M17x R4 w 1070M just arrived. Amazing! Yeah seems HW info controls just the GPU fan and not the CPU

    Edit: Seems to say it is gsync, is that possible? (yes eDP and 120hz screen, win10 etc)

    Weird, it shouldn't be able to be gsync, where does it say its gsync?

    What gtx1070 do you have, Msi version?

    I will ask the seller about the card unless you can tell from hw info. I think it was HWInfo that said gsync but I will check tonight.

    i have read your thread like 4 times the past 2 weeks. i just didnt know you were using the zotac card. i just now saw the picture of it in your initial post. hmmm
    so if i dont want to cut the chassis the zotac 1070 is the way to go.

    what about the benchmark and gaming speedS? is the zotac the same as the black msi 1070 with the strange form factor.?
