    Does anyone know if these MXM GPU's that have been floating around labelled as Dell and HP cards are safe? Like its not bad as in GeCube first gen 1070 bad?
    I am asking cause I want to put one in my M17x R4 since its a standard sized MXM 3.0b I wont have to do modifications.

    I have one in my alienware 17 and it works great and as far as I know there are other users that installed it without any problems. I would say it is the best card if you don't want to mod the chassis

    I have a similar looking Quadro P4000 (hp branded) running in my M6700

    If you ask me, they have used a "generic" picture and not an actual one. The dimensions' designation looks awfully similar to the Eurocom one. Just as before - someone has to buy one of these and crack it open to be 100% certain :)

    Yeah but that is the HP/Dell model? Those are 120W, I remember GeCube had a 150W one, blue card, I want to see if I can use that instead of the 120W, it should give me more performance if it does not blow up.

    It's the DELL/HP-Card. With the full copper heatsink and LM you're good to go. Alternatively, if you want moar powah you can use the 150w MSI variant. But to be honest, it's not worth the hassle as you will get into Powerthrottle and Temp issues.

    You can stop the power throttle with the unlocked BIOS if I remember correctly in the M17x R4, I could be wrong though, something about disabling adapter warning.

    Yepp, I've read about that too but it was also mentioned that the MXM-Slot from the M17x R4 cannot utilise more then 120w.

    Maybe @M18x-oldie can shed more light on this ?

    there is an hardware limit I think, could probably be modded by modifying a shunt resistor on the board :)
