    Upgraded Laptops by forum users (work in progress)


    I create this thread because I think that concentrating knowledge about upgrades can help people who would like to change gpu
    http://www.notebookreview.com/howto/how-to-upgrade-nvidia-mxm-notebook-graphics-cards/

    MXM is supposed to make repairs and upgrades possible and easier. [​IMG]


    Not all MXM cards are the same.
    Type A card ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Type B card

    MXM Gpu upgrade could require a new heatsink or a modified heatsink

    Good idea!

    p150em with 1060
    http://tieba.baidu.com/p/4840318726 (chinese)

    Have a hunt through the 'Pascal upgrade' thread and the 'Keep 3.0b alive' thread - @dzpliu has linked lots of baidu threads

    Maybe also list failed upgrades and why.
    Gecube RX480(M) MXM into various Clevos during testing - boots but beep/auto shutdown due to EC incompatibility
    Gecube 1070 MXM - works *but* recalled May17 due to firmware/power regulation/blowup issue
    Clevo 1080 (iirc?) into P870DM - failed only because their aux connector wiring was wrong (carefully looking at specs would have maybe prevented the kaboom)
     
    dzpliu and sicily428 like this.

    I'm having trouble with my custom heatsink, the solder I was using formed some rather weak and brittle bonds so I have to wait for a new tube of a stronger solder to come in. Other than cooling problems it does works well (until it just hits 90 and throttles badly)

    Things that work well:
    -Rendering games on the laptop screen using Optimus
    -Rendering games on external displays (including VGA thanks to Optimus)
    -Oculus Rift when using a DP to HDMI adapter
