    :) 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.

    I'm still waiting for the gear to arrive.

    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.

    What problems would I see if I attempted to flash the desktop 1070 vbios onto the notebook 1070?

    oh ok.

    i wonder what's causing the throttling temp to not work in @Coolane's tool? there's gotta be something else that's still pushing it to the default level.

    The temp throttling mechanism is more complicated than just being controlled by a simple temp value in the vBIOS, it also has relationship with power and voltage level, maybe also something else.
    I am going to look into more to see if I can find a way to reduce the dynamic clocks throttling.
    For now, try to keep the core temp as low as possible to reduce the dynamic clocks from dropping too much.
    In addition, setting the curve like this can help keeping the card at lower temp, also minimize the drop:
