    Not at my laptop till tomorrow, I can figure something out.

    if on boot you press F12, and go diagnostics, does the gpu fan spin up?

    And for the heck of it, did you check that you remembered to plug the fan in?

    Highly unlikely that the fan wasnt spinning at all in furmark, you would've fried the GPU within minutes. As an interim solution, have you tried HWInfo to control the fans?

    These recent models of 1070 MXM 3.0 B (black PCB) weren't available when you started this thread right?

    On the good side, it looks like there would not be a problem with the heatsink and key board / palm rest sticking out because of akward angle...
    On the bad side, we have absolutely no clue where these black PCB cards come from and how professionally they were baked... and therefore their overall quality and durability...
