    The cap on the rear is difficult to tell about because of the angle. If you can't fix the 980m I can recommend the m6100 as a card that will at least allow you to use your computer; it's about 30$ and on the same level as a 770m.

    Do you have to mod the Nvidia driver inf to get this installed or not? When I tried using the 765M in place of the 980M, I had to do that to get the driver installed.

    I didn't have to on either my p870dm, p750 or any other clevo.
    The m6100 is an AMD workstation card so that might be why.

    I have replaced the 87350D , the cap C59, the short was cleared from direct measurement, however when I put the card back in the system, the standby voltage was ok and then when power on the power supply cut the power indicating there is a short. I removed the card and measure the + and ground, it is short again, that means there is something else broken that burnt the power circuit once power is started...

    Final Update, sent the card to a knowledgeable technician with a reasonable price, the pull up capacitor at the back of the burnt 87350D was toasted and burnt as well, by removing them, the card is ok now, my self-replacement of the 87350D and E7 cap was not bad at least.

    I have reapply fresh cooling pad to the card and CPU VRM, hopefully to keep the temp. down, at default fan, max GPU temp 80 oC, at max fan GPU temp Max 70 oC

    Here's 3D mark result for 980M vs 880M in the same GT72 2XX 4720/16G/1T HDD

    And now my keyboard is bad... F,G, Space is dead and I think F1 key is stuck and keeps on input F1 Signal to the computer, thinking to get a replacement keyboard or not, else I will disconnect the keyboard ribbon, keep the RGB ribbon on and use an external keyboard.

    Really, too tire to dismantle the whole system again, especially I have apply the fresh thermal paste and cooling pad

    Just wanted to post a quick Thank you for you all here! My notebook would not turn on anymore and I located the graphics card as culprit, and after reading here I let someone replace the IC/ MOSFET in the corner of the card (after checking resistances). Now it’s back in and working!!! What I wonder though: my idle temps are around 60C...

    oh and be extra careful with the little chip on the back of the card where you replace the IC - it also loosened when heating the part up and as the person said that resoldered it, it was a pain in the neck to reapply (See photo).

    thanks again for the incredibly useful post!

    Good to hear, looks like the 0 Ohm resistor is popping out on your card

    0 Ohm resistor? That would be a defect one then, Sounds strange :)

    jk, yes that’s the one he desoldered by accident when desoldering the IC on the other side of the card and it was a b*tch to solder again without risking the IC to also desolder again. It’s fixed on the card, looking a bit funny but seems the card is working flawlessly. Just wondering about those 52-60 degrees Celsius in idle...

    by the way, temperature at RDR2 with high Settings/ ultra settings stays around 65 degrees max. I am using thermo grizzly kryonaut and applied like they suggest (a thin layer spread out on the whole chip instead of the pea method). Although I am not sure what temperature exactly the Clevo tool shows (CPU? GPU? Chassis?)

    On GPU dies I always go for an X pattern and it works fine, regarding the thermal paste.
