    Yeah I would gear more towards that eurocom myself it would be the most reliable. But I don't have any i would definitely try tho. Any if anyone is willing to transform their gaming unit into a workstation I am here for the trade.

    The MSI is extremely solid. Many of us have power boosted it well beyond its 115W stock, for many many months. Eurocom used to stock the MSI 1070 before they came out with their 1070.

    @sicily428 Ok, what's the difference between the MSI 1080 type 1 and type 2?
    What MSI laptops even use type 2? what is the TDP of type 2? 200W? 195W? 190W?

    It looks like Type 2 does not use an auxiliary power connector while type 1 does use an auxiliary power connector. Type 1 is on GT73VR 6RF and 7RF.
    But what is type 2? Is this the 1080 used in the MSI 16L13 / Tornado F5? And what is the TDP if it does not have an auxiliary power connector?

    yeah, not gonna happen considering similar standard MXM cards are having issues. You may as well get the MSI 1060 instead and see if that will work.
