    With ASUS STRIX XOC bios on hybrid cooler

    [​IMG]

    55c max on Hybrid cooler (2x 1850RPM GT P/P) on a very short Firestrike (not even ultra) run. 20c ambient with full AC blasting.


    The problem is that I tested the STRIX XOC bios on a founders edition, different pcb. Even with power limit removed, the card didn't perform as well compared to stock vbios (even worse on some benches).

    As such, the limitation this time might actually bring stability to the card. Unless you can keep it below 50c (which I really doubt even with AC you can do that). @Mr. Fox

    Not sure what you're saying. While I've had the 6 cores in this x7200 at 85-90C, I run pretty much 50C (65C max.) on the 460M. And from the looks of it, I'd say a single 980GTX runs slightly higher ( around 50 to 55C ) when not stressed and in Dubai*. I hope a single 1080GTX temp holds about the same thermal footprint as the 980GTX

    A bit confused on what I thought was the design. Could you please explain that phrase and how it applies to the P870DMx?

    P870DMx has none of that optimus noob technology

    Even the P65xxx series can FULLY TURN OFF AND DISABLE OPTIMUS unlike most trashtops out there

    ;) That was my understanding as well - a QFHD LCD receives input straight from the discrete GPUs as the iGPU lanes are not physically wired to anything.

    I'm sorry if this has been addressed, but 151 pages is a lot to read through and I still can't download the user manuals. What is the difference between the DM2 and DM3? Clevo's page makes it seem that only the DM3 supports 1080 SLI, however RJtech has an option for 1080SLI in the DM2. What makes the DM3 $1000 more expensive than the DM2?

    Anyone want to send me a review unit so I can make my decision.

    That's up to Nvidia I'm afraid.

    They deliver pretty well.. I remember buying the 970M upgrade kit on Christmas Eve 2014, they shipped it out with Fedex before they closed for the day and it reached me on the 27th (after boxing day)...
