    My p870dm-g is getting on the older side these days. It has turned into more of a desktop...so I figured I would up the cooling and overclock it some :D. Thought you guys might appreciate this hehe

    Why not just get a desktop at that point?... I've seen it all with laptops now lmao. Like I can't even imagine myself buying a laptop over 1k just to set it up and spend more money on a screen, keyboard, etc when it already has that attached on it....

    From what I understand it is an existing laptop and together with the killer deal on the external 2070 the OP decided to keep it for a while,

    As for not using the screen I think that is very common as many members use external screens when they use their laptops at home - it also would allow to place the laptop in a way that provides additional cooling like for example with very powerful yet relatively quiet external fans.

    Why not just buy a Clevo MXM GTX1080 used on eBay? Or a Clevo RTX2070? Then they would run inside your laptop and both options would be faster than the graphics box RTX2070.

    I have seen used Clevo GTX1080’s on eBay go for $400. And inside of your chassis with a Vapor chamber you can run over 2Ghz with incredible performance.

    I run a GTX1080, and at 1080P it still hammers everything I throw at it. It pushes a steady 1,898-1,911Mhz on the GPU and the GDDR5X runs 11,384 effective.

    Learn the history. Vapor chamber don't fit in the DM (wrong shape). And you'll need mod the heatsink + change the pipes routing and make the MXM slot electrically compatible with 1080. Not a easy fix as you think it will be. Doable, yeah. But for everybody? I'm not so sure.

    Adding a better MXM GPU would run me 700-800, external gpu can be used with future laptops as well for a reasonable price. The i7-6700k still holds up well for gaming/encoding/editing I mostly do. I suppose I could have built a desktop but again it would cost closer to 800 to function better and nowadays a much more portable laptop just as powerful can be had closer to 900/1000. Also the fans are just 8 small holes in the back of the case. When I picked it up around 2015 I was doing a lot of editing on site. Sadly I missed the 10 series GPUs by like 4/5 months ‍♂️. Also I just got married so no money haha.

    I totally understand, I was thinking your machine was compatible with newer MXM modules. You got a great deal on that external GPU anyways. The Aorus external GPU’s boxes are nice and this was a pretty good option to get more power out of this older machine.
