    Maybe grinding your 1070 is why they keep breaking.

    And Zotac 1070 VRMs are functionally no different than the MSI ones, but again, you don't really know what you're talking about.

    You can see here how you should grind it to get it working with Zotac/MSI 1070

    For MSI 1070:

    For Zotac 1070 you don’t need grinding like on the second picture, but here:

    And that's why your 1070s keep breaking. There is a minor short.

    The other one that has high failure rate is Eurocom's 1070:

    I highly suggest you to get MSi 1070, which are preferred among owners of Clevo and Dell AW laptops.

    Thank you guys for your replies!, right now my 8770w is pretty much stock and running a DC panel.

    I thought it was easier to get that 1070 setup but after your replies I see that is not.

    Could you guys give an advice of which card to look for in order to replace my FirePro M4000 without much hassle?

    Again, thank you guys!

    The absolute best price/performance is the M3000M right now, but for 250 you can grab an M5000M. The M5500M is based off of the Titan Maxewell but is very cut down and 150W TDP.

    I have the M3000M and it's BIOS modded for 100+W and performs the same as a desktop GTX 960 or 1050 Ti.

    GTX 980M/Quadro M3000/4000/5000M and GTX 1060 are your best options if you don't want to make any cooling improvements and just want to have cool working GPU with stock dual pipe heatsink.

    If you want to keep your current M4000's heatsink, you can go up to Quadro M2000M/GTX 965M

    EDIT:

    Forgot to mention - you can also use Quadro P2000 with your current heatsink (not sure if it will require grinding though..) as you have DC screen. It will run cold too.

    You can also see if you can get a 1050 Ti fro Aetina, a small MXM company. They sell a 1050Ti based MXM module that's 3.0a.

    Unless you want to buy 1k cards or more they will ignore you, at least was how they behaved when there wasn't much more than just the MSI 1060/1070's and theirs..
