    So it looks like I may have been wrong about the Quadro P5200. From the looks of the photo in this post the P5200 is using the same flipped layout as the GT83VR / GT63VR / Tornado F5 GTX 1080. It does look like a couple of the VRM's are arranged differently so the P5200 heatsink may require some modification to work, and the WT75 motherboard would have to be removed so the card standoff's can be moved to the GTX 1080 positions.

    So while this is great news I am also interested in getting the parts needed to TDP mod the GTX 1070. I think everything I need (Skypro, 1.8v adapter, Pomona clip and jumpers) is outlined in this post: Mobile Pascal TDP Tweaker Update and Feedback Thread.

    You can’t use the heatsink from the GTX 1080 or the GTX 1070.


    The P5200 will be a mess as you would need a whole new heatsink, not to mentioned the modifying of the mounting point for the card. I say you avoid this , unless you use the OEM heatsink that would probably came with a P5200 on your WT laptop.

    On the other hand , a GTX 1080 will be easier.

    @Falkentyne Great news! MSI released a new BIOS and EC last week. It looks like the cancer is now gone. It has the 9th gen microcode embedded by default and supports the 9900k out of the box. It can go beyond 95W now and seems to only be limited by cooling or settings I specified in the bios. No modifications to IMON slope or IMON offset needed.

    Nope, just the TDP modded GTX 1070, which runs fine. I doubt RTX 2070+ will ever come to a compatible MXM format for the WT75 / GT75. MSI / Clevo / Dell has already made their new (incompatible) formats, and Zotac is using standard desktop PCIe RTX 2070's in their new mini PC's.

    How high can you test sustained TDP on your chip (with keeping it under 98C?). Alienware 51m camp is all angry right now. If you can pull >150W sustained, this will make a lot of people angry, and @Papusan very very happy.

    Please correct me if I'm wrong: the WT75 uses a socketed desktop CPU and MXM upgradable GPU!

    Pretty much but I think it's locked some way or another to the quattros.

    It uses LGA1151 CPU's and a MXM GPU. I have a 9900k and GTX 1070 @ 185W TDP (pulled from a GT73VR) in my WT75. Sadly MSI only sells these as a mobile workstation, with Quadro GPU's, so even the entry level config is $2900 MSRP.

    Thanks, man! I will decide between this WT75, a Clevo based laptop, and the Alienware A51-m. The only thing I don't like about the A51-m is that it removable GPU is a Dell proprietary form factor, not the MXM. The positive is it's DP 1.4 version.
