    I may have a dead mobo for parts in the near future. Trying to work something out with woodzstack first.

    60hz is only functional if its on the edp cable. no one has tested it with the 4th gen intel graphics and 60 hz yet. it might work but it doesnt look very promising. This is on my testing list once I get another mobo.

    Pictures are in the onedrive file I linked here. I used a set of "flush cutters" and just trimmed the socked to fit.

    I have a 1060 running in my AW17R1 now and it runs great on 376.19 but I'm getting some spotty performance sometimes. Mostly in the witcher 3. the card performs lower or on par with the 980m but at low voltage. clocks stay around 1690 to 1770 core and 2100 mem. I get about 45 to 60 fps with hairworks off and everything else at ultra. A vbios mod sure would be nice for these pascal cards. Once I tinker with this a bit more I am going to buy a 1070 and see if It's worth the money. The 1060 is good but without a modified bios its just a bit better than the 980m with a good overclock.

    I have a 120hz panel and so far the 1060 runs great. I have been trying to get my hands on a vbios editor so that i can unlock voltage and remove gpuboost but no luck so far. I got a 14k graphics score from the 1060 in 3dmark11 on stock but in game its about the same as an oced 980m. Sorry i know this is a bit offtopic but i plan on moving to a 1070 soon. Woodzstack is the person to go to for you mxm needs.

    Could you please share your VBIOS?

    I want to flash my ZOTAC MXM 1070 Card and see if it works over the internal display!

    The MSI and ZOTAC cards are completely different, flashing vBios of one over the other will most likely brick the card. I would recommend that you backup your current vBios and ask @Prema if he is willing to modify it for you for a proper compensation.

    Much safer option.
