    1070 in the more standard mxm shape (the MSI ones can be a slight bit off).

    I see, thanks!

    I just want to make sure, will this card work as a straight drop in? Or will I need the 980m heatsink as well?

    Notice how the card protrudes out from the mxm connector a lot? It's not a standard mxm size.

    Hello All,
    I need to consult with the hive mind.
    I am in need of a new laptop, and I am going to go with a p870, even though EOL; with the config I want to go with it should be good to go for at least the next 5-6 years.
    For that, I am going to order basically a barebone from HIDevolution (I've been in touch wiwth Donald already, cool dude) with a 2080, AUO B173QTN01.4, modded VC and the intel WiFi card it come with.
    The rest I'm gonna get here and there and that's where I hope someone can help me / warn me if I'm gonna do a mistake:
    -CPU 9900k from Rockit with the copper IHS
    -RAM from memory.net , Samsung most likely; here you can help me: what's the fastest that that config can handle? I've read in some places 2666, but I've seen custom builders offer up to 3200. Can someone make a recommendation from memory.net?
    - Storage: 970 EVO 250gb to start with for the OS, 2x 2tb firecuda in the 2.5" slots in raid 0
    - get a 780w power brick somewhere
    - I'm not gonna mess with the Conductonaut when installing the CPU as I have no experience with it and I don't want to fry the motherboard, so Artic Silver 5? Kryonaut? NT-H1? I want to install myself the thermal pad as well, is there guide somewhere with the recommended thickness ?
    Anything I'm missing?
    Thanks for your time!

    To make the 9900K truly fly you sand down the die and get a proper custom IHS to match the new height, I guess it depends on how hard core you want to be,
    3000-3200 is fairly easy to run and gives you the performance.
    A larger SATA based SSD is likely a better bet at that size/price.
    780W PSU for a single GPU? Any particular reason?
    Artic Silver 5? Did we go back to 2003? Thermal grizzly is fine.

    That's why I want to order the CPU from Rockit, they seem to have good results and good reviews. Any feedback on them?

    The 780W PSU is because I don't want to be lugging around two bricks. On all the custom builder I've seen, they all recommend 2*230W and adapter. In the past I've eaten through a good number of bricks, the 780 seems sturdier and more durable.

    Thank you for the other recommendation!

    In between the die and IHS, yes that's the plan. Between the IHS and VC not yet; I move around a lot and I have read so many bad things happening with LM that I don't want to go that way, yet. I'm not gonna be a competitive benchmarker or anything, but I want a piece of machinery I'll be really proud of and be able to tinker with a little.

    You can put in barriers but yes caution is advised.
