    If you go to aliexpress.com and search for gtx980m and gtx1060m you can see which card is MSI GT70 compatible. One thing I can add was that I went for the card for Clevo, without G-sync. Have not seen any documented heatsinkmod for the 1060 but think it must be a similar mod depending on placement of parts on the card. I have at least seen one user in this thread with the 1060 together with GT70 so it must be doable.

    Thanks for following up, @3dguy, but no, I haven't attempted it yet.Terribly afraid of bricking it and my only fallback is an old Lenovo Thinkpad, which I don't want to use.

    Hey all,

    Im using custom gaming laptop which uses MSI GT680 case and I do believe MSI bios too. I was using 970m and but it burnt and I want to replace it with 980m.My problem is I had no knowlegde about all of thoose bios/vbios compatibility and my mind is a big mess right now. I have ordered card from Aliexpress because there is saying its working with MSI GT60 and here is the link;

    https://www.aliexpress.com/item/New...905.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.3da24c4dEcPPg0

    As you see card's vbios is 84.04.35.00.05.Shouldnt it be plug and play? I was thinking 970m and 980m cards has same stuff and it must work with nothing install or flash.

    Laptop's Bios : E16F4IF8.517
    Bios Date : 12/01/2014

    Should I cancel my order or I really dont know what to do? Any help please? :(
