    And not accounting for the fact that a 1080 after overclocking and undervolting can outperform stock settings while only using 125-150W.

    well the last guy to put a 1080 in an m17x r4 could barley keep it cooled. even the 1070N with upgraded GPU heatsink is JUST in check in the m17x r4, granted this is not the alienware section. seems like i'm hedging my bets by getting an MSI 1070N if i can even find one now since i waited too long. at not from woodztack. maybe i'm better of actually trying to use my 980m.

    The cooling can be modified, the compatibility is what is key.

    The MSI 1070s can be found easily on ebay, many are going for 500 USD lately.

    Most 1070's run decently cool in the M17X R4/ 17 R1, and you can buy the "turbo fan" (or M6700 13CFM fan) and 5 pipe heatsink

    No need for that fan, M17x 11.4 cfm should cool the 1070 just fine.
