    Long time reader first time poster (actually second but ...whatever haha).

    After doing a bunch of research into what i can actually place in my laptop and what I can't i hit a few dead ends as far as upgrades goes and was wondering if someone in the community could offer some advice in the following categories as far as what options i have available to me. I would have contacted my system builder but @mythlogic seems to be MIA.

    Upgrade to fans / cooling system
    Updated Bios
    Upgrade to RAM
    Upgrade to GPU
    Upgrade to CPU
    Thermal GRizzly Conductonaut Compatible ?

    Currently I am running a clevo P177SM-A (Nyx 1713-A Via Mythlogic) aka SAGER NP8298
    Intel Core i7-4910MQ CPU 2.97ghz
    GTX 880m
    DDR3L-1600MHz
    BIOS Version/Date MYTHLOGIC 1.03.03, 3/27/2014
    SMBIOS Version 2.8

    Based on my understanding I can throw a GTX 1060 without any issue (possibly have to upgrade to windows 10) and I haven't found a definitive answer as to whether i can install a GTX 1070, or what that would take to get it to work, or if there would be bottlenecks.

    1070 cards in the right shape are rarer is the issue.

    You can re-paste the CPU, clean the heatsink and then use intel XTU to tweak it.

    Finding GPU's in general seems quite difficult. 980's and 1060's seem hard to find and quite expensive. Just wondering if it's an option.
    Where would i find a stable bios update for my machine?
    And would you know off hand if i could install more powerful fans? Or modify the chassis for more airflow ?

    You can get the latest BIOS from our team still with the serial number.

    Chassis modifications would normally be more of a last step. For now I would tune your voltage and frequency to get a good result and see if you need to go from there.
