    You can try getting the Z book's heatsink ( Which came with RTX 3000 ) and remove the copper pipes from it and attach the ones from you AW 18's heatsink by using hot air gun . Atleast you will have proper fitting that way. It isnt that much risky i would say

    That GPU in there looks like a normal MXM 3.0 card

    yeah but there is a difference in the heatsink if you can see closely .. i mean the fitting and the ups and downs for Coils , Vrms etc

    I think it’s easier to mod the AW18 Heatsink. Seems to be easier than modding for a MSI 1070. Only thing I have to think about is how I mount the card on the board.
