    aw man, i would rep you so hard right now! gotta spread the love first though :p

    in any case: GOOD JOB! CONGRATZ! now we can finally consider the Zotac 1070 as a REAL MXM 3.1B upgrade :D

    now we expect tons of benchmark data, naturally ;)

    Good job man, props for taking the risk. Big risk = big payoff. Zotac 1070 is the one to get it seems. how is the ASIC quality (check GPUZ)

    Congos man really worth the shot seems like it, So the corporate filth has failed again !!!
    Also note the GPU-Z doesn't have check on UEFI BIOS does that mean it will boot without the UEFI a.k.a Windoze X ? :eek::rolleyes::D

    Good job. Im impressed you were able to make the card work. Did you need the manual fan controls or did they start working after the vbios update?

    BTW, your laptop is an alienware 17 R1 Ranger. If it has the i7 4xxx generation processor this is the proper name for it. The M17x r4 was the last of the "M17x" generation. You laptop is the first of the "17" generation. When you look up parts etc you must look them up for AW 17 R1.
