    I think that means designed/made by Eurocom but I'm not sure. They should be compatible with p370em

    I assume that is going to mean that it won't fit the proper mxm 3b spec and instead have different length and/or width

    I’m still waiting to find a good price for a m18x R2 to test these GTX 980s.

    Yeah, I saw that. I’m trying to get just the barebone with a cpu. I message the seller to see if he will go that route for me. Hopefully he do and I can start on this project. I already have an idea for the cooling for the gtx 980s.

    They are pretty close in size when I stacked them on top of each other. I’ll take some pictures when I get home later this evening so you can see.

    Also The MSI GTX 980s comes with a detachable VRAM HS.

    Took a couple of days, a dozen disassemblys and direct to chip vbios flashes, even more driver installations and restarts but I FINALLY got my 1070s working properly with the internal display (eDP 120hz 1080p, same as the 3D model of P370EM) and it's now like a proper laptop.
