    This is what I had to do to get a Clevo 1080 to fit in a P157SM-A frame with a P150EM motherboard and be cooled somewhat adequately. I can only handle around 150W sustained, but that's 90% of the TDP unlimited performance. Those 5mm heat pipes barely survived the bending.

    Installed my Chinese bought standard 1070 yesterday on my p870dm-g. Had to use a copper shim on the core to elevate the heatsink a bit (was hitting a component) and all the thermal pads needed to be thicker aswell, since the 1mm shim raised the heatsink.

    Just installed drivers and ran Firestrike once, 13614 pts all stock settings with i7-6700. Max temp during firestrike was 72 with fans on auto.

    I will play Witcher 3 today and that'll show if the card is still working after that.

    Played Witcher 3 for an hour, no problems. This card is heavily power limited, at maximum GPU stress it seems to run on base clock 1443Mhz. Played Diablo 3 too, it doesn't stress the gpu so much, boosts to 1.7Ghz. Temps steady at 79-80 with auto fans (almost silent).

    But it's performing nicely :)

    Another M18xR2 > 1060 upgrade :)

    Something to note, there are two rubber feet on the back of the card, I highly recommend removing them:

    Just pull them off, they're held by adhesive. Then the GPU will sit properly:

    Thanks @woodzstack @aaronne

    Anyone see notebookcheck.net's firestrike results for the 1070Ti? It looks like it's scoring less than my TDP boosted 1070 notebook.

    1070Ti (combined) - 15061
    1070Ti (Graphics) - 18405

    my modded 1070 (combined) - 15904
    my modded 1070 (graphics) - 19084

    this is an older result so I might retest to confirm if I have the power of the 1070Ti in a notebook and if I do that'll be great!

    EDIT: latest result at stock speeds

    https://www.3dmark.com/fs/13078558

    Not to shabby....it's pretty much running as a 1070Ti.
