    Okay, i find the source of the noise. When i plug out the charger, or lover the the core clock/memory clock of the gpu, or change the performance level in the gaming center its generate the noise. Anyone have an idea what should i do with this?

    When the core frequency is reduced it usually can reduce/eliminate the noise, and this can be achieved with disconnecting AC adapter which caused the system to run off battery. You can try setting your CPU utilization to 99% in Power Options.

    Short answer is this a GTX 1070 is already pushing the limits of not only the PSU but the MXM slot at GTX 1080 will simply not work or be so crippled by the lack of power it would be a expensive GTX 1070 speeds.

    Only GTX 1060 and GTX 1070 will work within the TDP limits of the laptop.

    We have standard MXM3.0b 82x105mm GTX 1060 and GTX 1070 available. TDP of 1060 is 75W, TDP of 1070 is 115W. So thermal spec wise they are the same as GTX 970M and 980M. In order for 10 series GPUs to work you need to have either eDP LCD panel or Optimus based laptop.

    What about europe? Do you have any shops you work with to which a laptop could be send for gpu upgrades ? I have a GT72S I would love to upgrade with a 1070.
    I am assuming the upgrade kits can be ordered here in the eu since I saw the prices in euros as well.

    What is required to successfully run 1070 in gt72s 6qf?

    I mean cooling looks identical, right?
    What about gsync? I've read different reports, some people lose it, others retain it.

    GTX 1070 VGA heatsink is different from 980M so you would need new heatsink or modify the existing one. Our GTX 1070 MSI cards are with GSync. We also have another GTX 1070 that is 82x105mm that is non G_sync.

    GT72-6Q series just needs a GTX1070 HSF from the GT72VR and that it. Unless you use the GTX1070 non msi, I am unable to test this though @eurocomsupport

    You also have to make sure your boot order in the BIOS is set to UEFI and not uefi-csm or legacy else you'll get no internal display.

    After that you'll need modded nvidia drivers in each nvidia driver update.

    Further more you will loose G-Sync due to the lic on the laptop no longer matching the cookie. This also includes the 75hz option however I have saved the edid which can be used to get it back.

    Hope this helps
