    It might require some modifications to the chassis because of the tab on one side , also on the other side it's a bit wider than standard mxm 3.0b.

    I'm sure both 980 and 1070 (those MSI ones) should work as the 1060 works, they don't require extra power.

    Just need to find a way to get them to fit and get the heatsink to cool them.

    the MSI GTX 980 might not work on different models due to BIOS or VBIOS problem,
    Clevo GTX 980 didnt work on 157,177sma, as well as the ZM series.

    Clevo GTX 980 did work without power supply in DM series (P750DM, P770DM) . you just needed to flash P775DM BIOS.
    Vaguely remember seeing someone successfully put GTX 980 on P570WM as well.

    Here's some chinese links: about GTX 980
