    The vrm fets on the 1070 are in a slightly different position, they extend further south compared to this old 580M board[​IMG]

    You'll need to carefully examine it and get the fit on those vrms just right. At least you don't need to remove metal.

    Either way, If I do get it, and 1070's don't fit, 980m/780m is always an option, its only going to my brother anyways

    You'll be happy to hear that Gecube just released their own 1070s with SLI, in stardard form factor, and with somewhat decent design

    The VRM quality is the big question.

    According to GeCube, the main VRM components they are using (mosfets, chokes) are the same as those on Founder's Edition cards. As long as they are telling the truth, my only other worry is the smaller components like the capacitors, resistors et cetera which are of an unknown quality. I'm thinking of buying one to see if they are really any good, but i've not decided yet.
