    Something like bhiner or superbuy adds like $5 or so iirc, and then shipping for such a small item would be like $20 for expedited.
    Recalling back from the 1070 in the 18, the finstack needed modding, a cutout for the tab, and if using the NV heatsink, the VRM plate needed grinding

    I only had a GTX 1070 in the m18x R2, same design as GTX 980 ...

    Yes you only have to dremel the master heatsink as for the secondary , the tab face the other direction of the heatsink.

    I don’t know who to contact to get pricing lol.

    Pricing is 2299 Yuan, which is around $340-350 with current conversion rates.
    I would use a buying agent, you just make a account, paste the link, and go from there essentially.

    Where would this agent be located? I have never bought from this type of transaction before.

    I just scrolled up and saw it. Thanks. Gonna think about it first.

    These cards are meant to be used in SLI (MSI GT80), and they need mods for the heatsink as it has the notch

    So there’s nothing in the way of the tab on the secondary port?

    These don’t get in the way?

    What system would you use this for? Didn’t you sell your M18x again? lol

    The one on the left is incorrect, the red area is the heatsink and not the motherboard

    I’m saying on the left side wouldn’t the card hit the two headers and the chipset heatsink? The card seems a bit wider on the sides of the mxm connector.

    For the right side it looks like the subwoofer would get in the way.

    Edit: looks like one side of the 980 is fine and only the tab is the issue.
