    I will try and set some time to see what I can do to help you. Something doesn't add up, unless you already flashed the card.
    Your English i think is fine, I fear we might not be on the same page though.
    I will follow up via PM's so I can ask more questions and stuff...and keep a closer eye

    Has anyone installed an AMD Radeon HD 8970M graphics card in a Clevo P170EM? I picked one up cheap and I am looking at what it will take to make it work.

    Does anyone here know how thick the thermal pads are for the 7970m?

    I have a P151em NB and would like to put new ones on my GPU's vRAM and vrm's.
    Does this even make sense or should the stock ones still be sufficient?

    You probably just need Prema's BIOS mod installed on your machine. (Not sure though)

    I think you need to do some searching back, I think Prema has commented on it, it may be a case a vBIOS needs to be flashed or that it just does not work.

    Hi everybody.
    Just successfully installed Gecube GTX 1070 card (ordered from Taobao seller) to my p170em machine.
    170SM-A gpu heatsink for 980M was a little tight fit, but it works even without copper shim. VRAM heatsink is original one, just needed a little modification. Thanks for Eurocom about photos that give me very helpful information.
    And #Prema, big thanks for your hard work. I think your modded bios for my p170em was key for success.
    #bennyg, I got a big inspiration of your p370em dual MSI GTX 1070 modding.

    This is huge upgrade from AMD 7970m. TimeSpy graphics score went up from 1446 to 5358. Just a little worried about temperatures, 84 °C after Heaven benchmark. Cooling needs further investigation...

    Thanks for everybody here in NBR! Great community!!

    Cheers :hi:

    I just flashed my vBIOS on the 7970M to 0.975 mV while still having a clock of 970 MHz and Memory clock of 1200 MHz. Runned Heaven bench for 8 hours to make sure everything was stable. Planning on making a guide for people.
