    It did indeed work! Unfortunately im running into some power restrictions when running games. My 4930mx can not hold an overclock when gaming and throttles quite a bit. Great work by coolane though. Hes awesome.

    :) Thanks!
    This is the current look, default heat sink has 6 heat pipes, adding the 16 I put on, now it has 22 just for the GPU, :p.
    It doesn't look as nice/organized as the one before, but it helps me improving temp further.

    Tried loading 262W through the MXM port, no gut to go higher... 1070@262W.jpg

    Will have to see how a stock 200w heatsink will do. Otherwise I may need to buy more heatsink pipes and figure out placement.

    I also think I have a limited amount of TDP to play with anyway since I am only powering my P870DM-G with a single 330W PSU. I might just limit the TDP to 150W (with a bump to the throttling threshold to 70) and call it a day.

    I got my 4930mx stable at 4.4ghz and my TDP o. My 1070 set to 150 base and 180 max. It runs great and i will post some firestrike scores when i get back home. Thanks again Coolane! Awesome work.

    You are welcome! Glad to see it's working for you! :)
    Be careful of the TDP though, we haven't known how robust the standard zotac card is under heavy load. Maybe test it around 150W then slowly raise it up.
