Yeah it does well enough but can be much better with 120mm fans that can generate some real CFM and are still controllable with a fan controller (which I have). The HDMI cable I was using was finnicky iirc and was removed from service. I have a DP cable but its the regular iteration, I will go out and buy a mDP to DP adapter to resolve that little issue. I checked just in case and Windows was setting to 1920x1080 like it should, its just not displaying anything. Whats odd is that it works just fine on the 13 R3 though, so maybe the monitor only works @ HDMI 2.0? I dont know but I will find out tomorrow. EDIT: It just started blanking out on the 13 R3 as well, likely just a bad cable. Its technically the best 1070 in the market, but without active cooling on the VRMs then it can just be a problematic card lol I plan to push it to 130w TDP or however much I can get without power throttling from the MXM slot. The USB Hub I got also is pretty nice, no issues powering some HDD's, so after retrofitting the fans to the cooling pad, I will attach the HDD's underneath and connect to the Hub for additional storage. I need to make the mockup heatsink for cicichen to look at, hes not wanting to try and waste materials again from the last time he attempted a 4 pipe single row heatsink. I need it flat as possible so I can attach more mass to the die area, if im I am lucky maybe get a heatpipe or two from the vrms to it so I can avoid the VR power limit reason.
