    Hello there!

    Long story short I have have been utilising the P751DM-G for a while now (3 years + ), runs flawlessly until the GPU decided to die on me ( mosfet KO ), fortunately it can fix. The thing is most likely the final stretch for the card is coming sooner or later.

    Specs:
    CPU: i5 Skylake 6500 socket 1151
    GPU: GTX 970m
    RAM: 24 GB DDR4
    Display: Full HD IPS 15.6" 60HZ

    I am interested in upgrading the GPU, from GTX970 to any viable solution of GTX 10x0 +
    Starting from 0 modding to more advance things which are necessary.

    I've been lurking on the forum for a while now and I'm not sure if the following card has been tested on P751DM-G.

    Thank you in advance :)

    That wont fit, it needs to be the same width as the connector which none of the Clevo ones are.

    only standard mxm cards will fit:

    - 980M
    - MSI 1060
    - Gecube green PCB 1070 (known to blow up)
    - Gecube blue PCB 1070 (higher TDP than green PCB, more mosfets)
    - Black PCB 1070 found on ebay
    - Zotac black PCB 1070 (pulled from their SFF skus)
    - Quadro P3000/P4000/P5000 (latter a bit slower than 1070)
    - Quadro P3200/P4200/P5200 (latter a bit slower than 1080, but make sure they have a vbios chip soldered on)

    Thank you kindly for the information.
    From the ones that you have listed, can you tell me which one should be considered? Speaking from a quality point of view.
    Also, if you would be so kind to share a link from where it can be bought, that would be nice :)

    depends on your budget and performance expectations ;)

    not so many sources around to find mxm gpus: vendors like eurocom and rjtech, ebay, aliexpress, taobao or forum marketplace like here on NBR.

    Well, if GPU performances increase with at least 25%, I'm satisfied with that.
    Regarding the budget, lets say somewhere between 350$ - 700$ max.

    What would you recommend ?:)

    u can get double that increase with the 1060 from MSI alone. but a 1070 would also still be inside your budget :)

    That sounds good, at least 1-2more years squeezed :D

    Could you be so kind to share links to both upgrades? Looking for trustworthy sellers. ( i'm from EU )

    Thank you very much :)

    As @jaybee83 mentioned, best bet would be something like ebay or here, as you would get a more reasonable price.

    As for the stock, I've had contact with 4 different clevo resellers and none had 1070/1080 series cards left. Depending on where you're from have a look at the EU list and perhaps send some emails regarding 1070.

    @clevo-extreme I believe GTX 1070 can be ordered on request, ~709€. Perhaps they can hook you up.

    a few examples on ebay, although i havent bought from those sellers. but their ratings look pretty solid:

    https://www.ebay.com.sg/itm/New-Nvi...-G2-A1-Graphics-Card-for-Dell-HP/192694490959

    https://www.ebay.com.sg/itm/Nvidia-...-G2-A1-Graphics-Card-for-Dell-HP/283219758421

    https://www.ebay.com.sg/itm/For-Del...-MXM-3-0-N17E-G2-A1-Graspic-Card/183544248714

    https://www.ebay.com.sg/itm/Nvidia-...-G2-A1-Graphics-Card-for-Dell-HP/153228808055

    thing is, ull need the right vbios to make these cards work properly. with any luck, only driver inf modding will be necessary, worst case black screen upon boot. maybe try and contact the sellers to ask for input on this.

    heatsink should be fine though, layout is identical to the 900M series :) worst case ull need a copper shim for the gpu die due to differing height, but not sure about that, might be the same...
