    You know how to edit the EC firmware or do you have any link on how to modify it ? or the only thing we can do is to flash an other firmware from an other GT72 ?
    I will not keep the entire GT72 around, just one board to try and/or diagnose MXM gpu, power supply will not be an issue for my setup.
    And also if you wonder the aliexpress link is a RTX4000 from HP that have a similar size as MXM 3.0b card

    I have not modded my EC firmware nor has greyghost it all runs fine. GTX1060 or GYX1070 will run fine without issues can not say about quadros as I don't use them or frankly care about them as I am a gamer, though in theory they should work so long as the TDP is with in 130w TDP after all our VRM's are ageing and are not effective as they used to be.

    Also never cross flash GT72 BIOSes it's the quickest way to kill a motherboard. To keep it simple just stick to what has been tested and known to work which a GTX1060 and GTX1070 is known to work.

    Nothing against yourself but to me a person's job or ex employ should upto them to disclose if they deem it being required. As majestic is a great person whom has helped me a lot I show a lot a respect to that user thus my stance.
