    No worries mate, it was a very specific vbios, I extracted it from a broken clevo 1080 which had the same vram chips. Apparently there are two variants of gddr5x Gtx 1080 mxm. I have the uncommon version but it isn’t impossible to find :)

    my killer networking adapter dissapeared, does anyone know if there is a whitelist to replace from or is it a "if it fits it sits" situation?

    A lot of people i looked at are going with intel AX200 chips.

    Hey all. Recently got my hands on GT83 and I hadn't realized that the keyboard used the Cherry Silver switches instead of the brown switches.

    Does anyone know if it's possible to exchange switches on this keyboard? I don't want to start pulling if they are soldiered on . . .

    I'm not sure you can. like, i think its it's own board but they'd probably be soldered down.

    Darn. Let's hope someone else knows otherwise. This keyboard is amazingly fast but just a bit too fast, I keep making mistakes. It's like I've found new shoes that let me run 20 percent faster but make me trip twice as often.

    I found this thread but don't know how to get in touch with the OP to ask if was able to replace just one switch.

    They are soldered, so you need to remove the top, unscrew the metal backing plate that holds the keyboard PCB and then you need to desolder the current switches and solder new ones.

    Thanks to you both! Very helpful. Darn.

    Once the warranty runs out I'll see if I can find a GT80 keyboard to swap out.

    No problem, I'd also reccomend pulling the killer 1535 while your in there. I got an AX200 lined up ready to see how it works.
