    Alright thank you for that information. I have a feeling that the AMD one won't be compatable with the NVIDIA ones at all. There shouldn't be too much of a difference with 3 vs 4th gen Intel CPUs. Do you think the M6700 would be a better option over the M6800? I've noticed that some of the motherboards on the M6700 have LVDS and eDP on the motherboard.

    The systems are largely similar. M6700 has both LVDS and eDP on the board, you are right, but generic eDP panels do not fit without hassle (modern panels have screw holes and such in different positions). The eDP port is for a 1080p Samsung 120Hz "3D" display that was available at that time. It is the case that you can fit a Maxwell card in a M6700 with NVIDIA heatsink without any worries.

    There were some Nvidia drivers where the gtx 980m just installed with no modding......does anyone recollect which ones those were? It would be useful in helping a friend set his up and having an easy to install driver on hand.....
    Edit; Never mind I find them on the page preceding this one......

    These are the 3 Heatsinks that fit into the M6800.
    The last one is the one you need to fit a Pascal card.Hard to find and expensive as well,but worth it IMHO.
    The one in the middle is the AMD one and the one in the top the Standard Nvidia one.I hope that helps.

    Hi,you are totally right,they won’t be compatible.Like I did post earlier,it is better to have the right heatsink for the card you want to install.

    I have an nvidia Tesla M6 running in one of my M6800 with an EDP panel without problems.Performance is close to an M5000M /GTX 980M.My only drawback is that I can not connect to an external video source due to the Tesla limitations( it is a server card).

    The EDP screen is just great,more vivid colors than my other M6800 with LVDS Lcd.

    Kind regards.

    I received my new panel and it confuses me a bit......I see the connector that fastens to the motherboard (It's labeled LVDS or whatever that acronym is) but there is also a white connector that I don't have anything to plug it in.....Can anyone shed any light on this?

    not a good pic but you get the general idea ..... edit...... I figured it out.... it's an M6700 screen assembly the moron sold as an M6800 one ......so the question is can this work on an M6800 or do I have to, yet again, return it and start over ....

    Did your new panel come with that cable? Can you not just re-use the came cable you were using before? That's what I have always done.
    (That looks like a webcam connector to me.)

    The cable from the m6800 panel does not fit this new panel......this is twice in a row ebay sellers have screwed me over....th first panel would not perform at 60 hz and this one is not what it was sold to me as ......I will likely just give up on the machine as I can't even find an honest seller for the screen .......
