    this is already my 2nd build, it ain't going to be a complete laptop, instead I am build this one from leftovers to be a portable mining machine :) though I am planning to do some benchmarking with it, so that's is why the SLI cable is there ;)

    more pictures to follow.

    Washers under the two slave GPU screws to not have cards bent under mounting pressure?

    Thermal stress and heatsink stress on that too, do be careful :)

    I see you're following through on my theory LOL

    I'm concerned that that tab is getting warped. You got the heatsinks?

    EDIT: I'll save SLI GPUs for a new model. I've done enough upgrading on my P870DM-G :p

    works perfectly, on full load with some OC I get 70C on both GPU with fans on Overclock profile, which is actually not too loud!

    while the time passes, I have already made a 3rd unit like this!
