    Its basically the same thing as the MSI 1070, which did fit in the AW 18 with a heatsink mod

    I remember them, they're the 130W 980s:

    https://www.techinferno.com/index.p...-gm204-gtx-980-m5500-n16e-gxxq7-all-variants/

    If it fit , I think they would work well in M18xR2 due to its power and cooling capability.

    Yeah I think @Rengsey R. H. Jr. tried in the M18xR2 and it wouldn't fit even with a heatsink mod but don't remember.

    He's like 20 mins away from me so if he orders them we can try them out in my M18xR2 but if the 1070 didn't work out for him I don't think these will.

    I just don't remember, he's had so many cards to test LOL

    I was just saying from what I remember, in that someone (forgot name) fit and ran the 1070 MSI in the AW 18/M18X R3 perfectly fin, he just had to cutout a little bit of the finstack to fit the tabs, which is only needed on the left GPU

    It was me. I did it on the M18X R2. And as you said , the notch into the heatsink will make it fit perfectly.

    If we can get these 980s it will be a nice upgrade for the M18X R2 running PEG.

    This is the score of the 980s SLI but with a 6700K I did awhile back.

    Score: 20902

    You were able to make that card fit both master and slave slot as long as we dremel the heatsink a bit? (M18xR2 of course)

    How much does the taobao agent with shipping add to the cost? Maybe they'd do a bit less if buying 2+ cards?
