    So physically it should fit with the MSI 1070 with the P3200 heatsink, but will it be plug and play? Really considering Eurocom's black friday but really don't need a quadro nor do I want to pay for a quadro. Gonna try to see if they'll sell one without a gpu and just get one separately.

    There is also this model:

    http://www.eurocom.com/ec/configure(2,455,0)TornadoF7SE

    But that is still a pretty tough sell given that you can get a P870DM barebone with a GTX 1070 from RJTech for half the price of the F7W or F7SE right now...

    FYI: An MSI GTX 1070 from a Tornado F5 booted right up in this machine. Pad placement was identical to the P3200. Heatsink even has the thermal pads pre-installed for the 2 additional RAM chips the P4200+ and 1070 have.

    Would this be possible with a GTX1080?

    There is not a GTX 1080 using this form factor to my knowledge. The closest equivalent is a Quadro P5200.

    Neither Clevo nor MSI have standard format GTX 1080's. The MSI 1070 is the closest to standard format, except for that absurd tab on the top right which makes installing it hard in a lot of systems.
    No MSI card uses this format in 1080. They either have the 'flipped' core version used in the MSI F5 and GT83VR, or the "Shifted" core version used in the other Titan laptops, which means different VRM sinks and heatsinks are needed for the "shiifted" core versions and the VRM heatsinks for the changed VRM layouts (the 1070 versions will not fit). Obviously the flipped core versions won't fit in the GT73VR, GT75VR, or GT75 Titan.

    The zotac and Dell GTX 1080's that have been appearing randomly in standard MXM 3.0 layout "may" work, if you can get the VRM heatsinks to make full coverage over the VRM's and RAM (some of the layouts of a few components are changed compared to the 1070 MSI card), but then God only knows if you would have backlight control or need modded drivers even if you did have backlight control.

    No, the GTX 1080 has a different board design than the 1070 and P5200.

    The P5200 and the GTX 1070 share the middle configuration. the 1080 on the right is very different.

    Isn't it true that you could just take the GTX 1070 and TDP mod it up to GTX 1080 performance levels?

    You can if someone makes a working editor.

    None of the GTX 1070's included with coffee lake laptops can be modded because the editor is discontinued, almost a year and a half out of date, and there's no source code available. And the only people who knew how to deal with the checksums and find the location of the values was Dremonic (who closed his website voltground.com), Coolane (who was working with Dremonic), and Prema, who knows everything but can't tell you :) and I think @bloodhawk is capable of directly modding his own vbioses by himself.

    No one else here knows how to do it.
    Not only do you have to know where to change the TDP values, you also have to be able to adjust the three "rail" limits to the next tier past a certain point (and those can be dangerous values to mess with).
