    Can simply adding more heatpipes help?

    Go full @Coolane?

    I'm sure there's enough clearance to add another layer of pipes and have it sit above the grill like on the 980DT heatsink.

    I read this topic from beginning to end.
    Is the 8700K on the P870DM3 currently stable?
    I could not find how to do it. Will anyone be able to run 8700k on the Z170? This is the perfect thing.

    @Prema I guess this is not the place. With the PremaMod, can we install the Quadro driver on the GTX graphics card? I installed the Quadro K5000m driver on the GTX780m. (MSI GT70). The core of the GTX780m and the Quadro K5000m were the same.
    Thank you.

    Yes, it is totally stable. Still needs some firmware and hardware tweaking to be great at overclocking, but it has no hiccups in terms of stability. The "how to" for the 8700K upgrade on Z170/Z270 is not published. It requires firmware and hardware mods. It is not a simple upgrade by any measurement. This is mainly a POC demonstration to show what great things are possible when literally every business decision made by manufacturers is not guided by greed and an abnormal obsession with control. The only reason it is not easy to install an 8700K and GTX 1080 is because it was designed to be so difficult that buying a new laptop is going to be the only option for 99.9% of end users.
