    Finally had the time to install the card yesterday.

    So far so good, the card never exceeded 75°C in tests, but it only has mx-4 applied at the moment, as i need longer holding screws due to the shorter xbracket.
    The heatsink fits like a glove and the card runs amazing :D

    Edit: i did notice throttling (power related) according to the GPU-Z, but the card only throttles to 1500MHz, and not all the way down to base clock which is great :)

    pretty cool, it's performancewise between a 1060 and a 1070.

    Debating going this route, where did you source the card?

    So you are the one that bought it, hehe looking good. M18xR2 continues to live on.

    Hoping to see 1170 and Quadro V5000M working as well. :D

    First, congratulations on the upgrade :) , So I understand that the card works well on the system without edp, optimus or 120Hz screen. So it is working on LVDS 60Hz screen without optimus right?

    Based on that comment: was it basically plug&play? Or did you have to hard mod something?

    Sorry, I can't get the pics to open via Tapatalk.
