    This old gaming machine is working with a GTX 980m which I pulled from a P170SM.
    Only thing to do is Heatsink and Driver modding. I also tried a MSI GTX 1070 and RX 480, but it ends in a Blackscreen. It could work in SG mode but unfortunately the X8100 only supports I7 CPUs.
    And here are some pics:

    That's pretty cool! What are you using it for at the moment?

    If only the more recent models could have such a nice unofficial upgrade path

    Yes, the worst thing that clevo had ever produced was the P150HM/P170HM.

    The only thing is that more modern cards will no longer work as they need eDP.

    Yes, maybe the 980m is the last one which will work. But maybe sli will work.

    I can say I tried several Clevo cards in my old P170HM. Didn‘t work. Don‘t know why. Only card was Clevo 680M and works only with one VBios.
