    Then open the same window and hit CTRL-D and then set a different voltage and try again.

    will have a look see and deduct what's causing it to eff up! mind you it's not a total system crash, just the game.

    Where can the cheapest 1060 MXM card be found. All I can find is $580 which seems a bit extortionate! Are there still no sensible prices?

    The 1060 is equivalent to the 980m in power. I found the upgrade to be disappointing. The 1070 is an excellent gpu even for the high cost. Are you putting this in your m15x? I heard the pascal gpus wont work in the m15x

    Pascal won't work as standard due to not supporting LVDS. However I plan a DP to LVDS conversion mod that will be doable for around 150 dollars. 1060 is only slightly better than 980M yes but the 980M runs way too hot for M15x. 80WTDP far more suitable. 1070 again runs too hot for M15x and probably will demand more power than motherboard can supply around 130W maximum to MXM slot.

    So no reasonable (sub $500) cards? Guess I have to wait another 6 months or so.

    Should have known you had a plan! It sounds pretty cool o wish you luck. The 1070 only pulls 115w. Its surprisingly cool running too but i do have a heavier duty gpu heatsink in my 17r1. The cheapest 1060 i was able to get was a deal from Woodzstack. $561 i believe. You should check with him.

    Now that we can flash a bios on the cards it should be just a matter of time to get a full tool that will adjust everything or a bios that comes unlocked. Im willing to put some money up for the trouble. Im sure others would as well.

    through a programmer = yes

    big difference.
