    No, sadly. I gained around 1 more degree by applying a slightly thinner layer of thermal paste, but that's it. Looking between the heatsink and the GPU, the heatsink seems to be perfectly flat as far as I can tell... Weird.

    Ive had my 1070 MXM for nearly a hear... how are you guys getting it to work. For cryin oout loud I fried my bios and desoldered it back to life just trying toto get this depressingly Taunting msi card in. Does anyone here feel like shooting me a PM and giving me a rundown on how to do this the correct way?

    they are not using the same card though as you, this thread was a guy with a regular sized 1070, what we call a EURO 1070 or gecube some call it. You have a 1070 from Vortex, with a odd vbios on it. Which has been taken care of of course. Technically speaking your setup in the end should be superior too.

    guys the pictures in the initial post are gone. can anyone remember what scores he managed to get in firestrike?

    i want to upgrade my m17x r4 with a 1070 and i am looking for the working options. the msi one is the best known to work although it needs some extra mods to the chasis and the mxm connector and heatsink...

    i am looking for maybe some other 1070 with more normal mxm design that might work?

    what about the eurocom ones? with normal form factor. do they still only work with 60hz displays? havent they fixed this with a bios yet?
