    Your laptop will not be able to fully utilize 2x330W without a firmware change. If you look at the underside, you will probably find an amperage/voltage rating which it is certified for. Increasing the power limit would probably require MSI to go through a recertification process or something similar.

    I agree; what is very relevant is the engineer above said he put a MSI 1070 in a MSI GT72 and it worked. Seemingly proving MSI wrong that it can't be done.

    Emailed you to join that group

    So as far as things are what made you buy the laptop you have? I bought the msi Titan GT80S 970 sli because of the "Guaranteed 2 generations of GPU upgrade" since I'm cashing in $2,500+..... But now I feel scammed...

    Ditto. Moved to MSI for the "upgradeability".

    Thought this was relevant from the back of my GT72S:

    The image is useless, it doesn't show what the GPU in the GT72 is. Could be 880m, therefore upgradable.

    Also MSI have accepted they should have provided upgrades, they have sent out emails offering the trade in, upgrade scheme.

    Well yeah, the only contention, between us and MSI, is what constitutes as fair compensation. They are currently taking a dump, then handing us a spoon.

    I am interested in seeing these individualized emails they're sending out next week. I had sent them an over 4,000 character email, detailing my acceptable terms.

    Would be something, if their response is, "Okay cool, let's do that."
