    Here goes a long post!

    I've been following the RTX and i9 stuff on GPU's and CPU's and Clevo & Sager!

    So i've been hyped with mainly the new CPU's!

    So a couple of stuff i've been tracking:

    Which i hope can help on the replies:

    P775DM3-G to P775TM1-G:

    1) I've found that Eurocom is selling cheaper parts for upgrades and i've been looking into this one:
    https://www.ebay.com/itm/Clevo-P775...960192?hash=item1a769a1940:g:t~QAAOSwXCVcbwEO

    (i've contacted the seller (eurocom) and they said my laptop would fit this one)

    So is it worth it?

    2) I would buy a 9900 or a 8700k to go along with it. Which to get and why? I've seen that 9900 would need undervolt so that wouldn't be a problem for me since my current 6700k is undervolted to -0.120mV and its running very very stable for over 6 months now and playing Battlefield V and other heavy games on it and no problems due to overheating (follow the temperatures in a daily basis).

    3) I intend on buying a 2080 in the future, so i would need to flash my 1080 to work with the P775TM1-G right? in the mean time?
    Also found this:

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/P775TM1-G-...h=item1a76780dbb:g:3HkAAOSwHN9cbZw~:rk:1:pf:0

    So the heatsink + GPU would be a plus i guess.

    P775DM3-G to P870TM1-G:

    This to me seems to be the most reasanable and the best option for "upgrading":

    Here the main point is in the first point:

    1) https://www.ebay.com/itm/Clevo-P870...=item1ee22ad05b:g:I5cAAOSw441bYMe0:rk:32:pf:0

    It includes: G-sync, LCD, cable for the LCD (which is a pain the ass to change, because almost all the laptop needs to be disassembled in order to change it)
    I already have the following LCD: AUO B173HAN01.3 (144Hz but no g-sync is available for the P775DM3-G and i believe this LCD is from a P775TM1-G but @John@OBSIDIAN-PC can confirm it since i bought it from Obsidian-PC)
    And the above option includes a 780w charger from Eurocom which would be a plus since 2 chargers of 330w are a pain the ass to transport every single day lol.

    2) same as above, cpu would be need to be purchased.

    3) I would like to upgrade from the 1080 to the 2080 BUT haven't seen a modified heatsink on sale.

    Apart from the above.

    Would this generation of nVidia be worth the upgrade or should i just a P775TM1-G barebone, take a new CPU, keep my 1080 and wait for VOLTA (30x0 from nvidia)?

    PS: The upgrade is not to be made tomorrow, its just something i'm thinking off, as a entusiast and Clevo lover myself :D

    PS2: Yes the computer is for gaming and 3D design on 3DS Max!

    my 6700k isn't that bad today, it can handle everything i throw at him without a single issue

    I am in the exact same situation owning a P775DM3 with 6700K/1080 and thinking about how to upgrade to 9900K.
    From the two models you quote, only the P775DM3 will support the NVIDIA 2080 natively. The P870TM is end of life and does not support the 2080. It needs a mod for the GPU heat sink and the firmware. As far as I have seen, only hidevolution offers a modded P870TM with 2080 (P870TM-R: http://forum.notebookreview.com/thr...870tm-r-owners-lounge-phoenix-5.826848/unread)
    Another option I was thinking about is just keeping the P775DM3 and trying the hack with the isolated pins and the modded bios to plug the 9900K into the DM3 (and stay with the 1080).
    Also, the fact that as of now the 2080 is limited to 150W v.s. 190 for 1080 makes me wonder how much I would gain from upgrading, given that it would be pretty expensive.

    I mean the P775TM1-G supports 2080, wrong model in your reply? Anyway yeah the 150w stuff is now a major drawback.

    I already have 600€ apart for the P775TM1-G barebone and mainly, will be a motherboard upgrade and CPU and keep the 1080 i guess. Sadly i think i'll do that

    Sorry for the type, sure, the P775TM supports the 2080, the P775DM3 does not, and the P870TM does only with a mod to heatsink and firmware.
    However, I assume the initial revision of the P775TM did not support the 2080, only the new ones which are shipped now. So if you want to run with 1080 now, and switch to 2080 later, you might need a firmware update.
    For sure you'll need to change the heat sink as well.

    If you have a 1080 stick with it. Unless you need more CPU power for things like video editing, then you can mod yours to take an 8700k or even 9900k (runs hot with the 8 core obviously)

    If you were going this route maybe you would be better off ordering from RJTech instead?
    https://rjtech.com/shop/index.php?dispatch=products.view&product_id=30583

    For about $250 more you get the same barebone system including a RTX 2060, battery, 330w Adaptor, LCD, WLAN, and a 1 year warranty. You wouldn't have to worry about swapping over anything... seems like a win to me.

    For upgrading I wanna spend my money and get a 2080 instead but I'll look into it
    Where is rjtech from? Never heard of them
    Edit: I see that they are from CA, USA

    Edit2: @qon look this up! It should be a great upgrade since you can buy the barebone and the CPU and the GPU and have warranty too :)
