    hi mate. im a m6800 user and my motherboard is an lvds display port type. i strongly confirm that an m5000m works flawless with just the inf mod. confirmed to be working with the a03 and a16 bios. didn't have the opportunity with other bios versions but it is rest assured it pretty much will work out of the box.

    regarding the heatsink, it is recommended to get the nvidia version as there might be changes in vrm heights and other components might not fit the heatsink cut layout. anyhow, test it with the heatsink to know maybe? if not, then order an m5000m one.

    although i would like to tell you that the heatsink that comes with the k3100m will work but needs some filing operations to be performed. i will create a full post on my laptop and upgrades soon.

    I found the amd heat sink to be a better fit than the base NV heat sink but if you can find the maxwell heat sink then that is the one to use. Supposedly it will work without any modifications. Otherwise you need to remove about 0.05 inches or about 1.25mm to clear all of the chip packages.

    I really love how we can use a computing/Deep Learning card in a mobile workstation.

    How does the M6800 compare to a ThinkPad P70?

    It might be a good idea to ask those guys in the Alienware group as well. Maybe there is a trick with Alienware m18x R2 that us M6800 guys are unaware of.

    My Bios is different to yours.Said that I would try to make a backup of your Vbios with nvflash and reflash it with an M5000M vbios.Both cards are similiar and it may work.
    As soon as I have time,I will make a copy of my Vbios.
    Take care.

    Probably I need to create a separate thread about it but before that I need to know how exactly Tesla M6 was installed and managed to work on Precision M6800.

    Thanks a lot! I'm really need to try your vBIOS. I have no luck with cross-flash it to Quadro M5000M with Nvflash because Device ID and Board ID missmach, but I flashed it with programmer. This doesn't help, device ID and board ID stayed the same as before flashing but vBIOS version was changed. Also in this case after installing drivers and reboot I haven't black screen anymore but GPU still not work, it's indicate with error code 43 in the device manager. So I ges the only I need is a proper vBIOS and proper modified drivers to make it work so I extremely need to try your vBIOS! :)
