    I finally finished set up for GTX1070 to M17X R4 3D(120hz)
    still doing some stress testing and actual gaming testing.
    I think current setting's temperature and clocks are stable enough to announced to show you guys.

    It needs few customizing to make GTX1070 fits to M17X R4

    1. 3D panel
    2. Heatsink custom
    3. Driver mod

    This is GTX1070 I have. It's full size MXM version with 8GB VRAM
    Red lines are chips that cause uneven matched for my custom heatsink. I will explain this later.

    This is full customize heatsink for GTX1070. It is 5rows of heat pipes for better cooling
    It's fully CNC milled from solid copper.

    Major difference from original heatsink is a bumb which locate at top-middle side.

    This is a picture of I cut off both side of bumps for fitting heatsink without trouble as I showed on first picture.

    After all this effort, custom heatsink match and sits on GTX1070 well and cools well.

    This is FS result of GTX1070 / i7-3940XM.

    I will post more pictures and information.
    If got any questions, feel free to ask me.

    Result of 3Dmark Stress test shows it works full and fine.

    I attached vBios file those who needs it.

    Nice work Seedless, did you have to change the vbios on the card for it to post with the 120hz screen? If not could I ask which version of vbios came on your card? And could you upload a copy?

    Thanks,

    Javers

    Wow that custom HS is like brand new, Better than what you get on Dell Aftermarket parts. I wish we could get access to such resources for the Alienware 17 R1 for fitting this type of MXM3.0b. Great work again, First you did that P5000M then this. Seems like you have a lot of contacts & access to the manufacturing facilities.

    Much appreciated, I'm struggling to get mine work with 120hz screen but its a Eurocomm card not a GeCube. Think there must be some differences between the boards.

    No difference, Eurocom card is really a GeCube card......

    @SeeDLesS how much the cost direct from Gecube?
