    So we already heard the stories, GT 72 can't be upgraded with pascal blah blah.

    Since I'm late to the party I decided to make it more interesting. Most people just bought a 1060 and a custom heatsink, well I decided to go for modding the stock heatsink.

    For those who want to upgrade their GT 72 without purchasing a 150USD heatsink heres how you do it:
    Grind the red marked places down to it's about the same height as the rest.

    My result after some grinding:

    Temps are extremely good, mid 50s to low 60s on demanding long gaming sessions.

    Stock with +10 TDP:

    Casual Overclock with +10 TDP:

    All in all pretty satisfied.
    @sicily428 Another one for your list.

    Oh my God, what a great gpu temperature!

    Was it with fans rpm like what, 3600? Was it maybe on cooling pad? And what was the ambient temperature?
    Mine 1060 from msi stays ~70° when i use it in games(stock fans). It's the same you showed above.

    I did a few tests today to compare the results. I even had to update the graphics card drivers to the latest ones
    to have the most similar configurations to that one which Dan has.
    And I must confess to you guys that I am very sad, my MSI gtx1060(mxm) card with the standard vbios:
    [​IMG]
    gets 1000 points lower graphic result in the FS test then the one from Danishblunt...

    Well... we have identical graphics cards, identical driver versions, and the difference of a 1000 GS points, between our versions of stock vbioses.
    In order to achieve similar points results in the graphics test, I need to increase the card core by 180Mhz.

    That's why I'd like to ask you guys, what am I doing wrong with my notebook that I have so low performance results?
    And can Someone explain to me this:

    Please? Wrong id in mod inf file or what?
    Here is a direct comparison of our results:

    I have rather agressive fans setup. I believe its around 75% when reaching low 50s. Ramping up to 100% on 65.
    No coolerpad, altho I could run it on a coolerpad and see how that goes.
    Well try to beat the casual OC score :'D

    I made myself some modded desktop drivers, so I renamed my card 1060 Ti, could have called it YoloCard3000Rocktz if I wanted to :D

    Okay, so you used the modified drivers. What is the reason for such a high core clock speed at stock vbios?
    Have you modified the tdp limits/temps?

    If I had then I'd be around 15K in graphics score. Sadly the 1060 requires desoldering to get modded, which I kinda am way to lazy to do especially when I have a system with a 1070.
