    Wasn't the P870 audio board only different going from the first generation (DM-G) to second generation (DM-3)?

    There were guides for earlier steps like dm -> dm3 or KM so worth searching out and cross referencing.

    Alright, I have all of the components together minus a GPU, which I am about to purchase. I just have a quick question before I purchase one. Will a GPU (1070 or 1080) out of a P870DM2/3 or a P870KM boot in a P870TM? I know the cards are physically the same, but from what I have read, it seems the vBios may be different? I just want to make sure the card I purchase will boot, as I do not have a spare machine to flash vBios or an external flasher.

    As always, thanks for the help guys!

    Dang, that’s what I’m afraid of. I found a good deal on a used 1070, so I may just have to buy an external flasher and soic clip to flash it.

    OP updated with general information and links to the workarounds that IMO render the upgrade to a TM motherboard unnecessary :)
