    HI GUYS
    the op is here
    wow! someone managed to put the msi gtx 1070m into a gt70!
    we need to make a post about the steps of it, but what i need now from you mr Hironori is to make everything documented with pictures
    what is the price of the card? and how did you get it ? and we need FPS reports of heavy games like DOOM and crysis 3 to compare with the 980m/1060m
    please respond ASAP as i'm considering getting that card :D

    Hi.

    I think i wonlt be able to help you out with the pictures
    You see, i failed before succeeding and well, followed the same process.

    Took all bolts from lower part of laptoo, remover the cover, unscrewed fan bolt, then heatsink bolts, unscrewed graphic card's bolts etc.

    The price of the card.... i think it was about 900CAD. i bought it from woodzstack

    i can't say much about comparison between the 880m and 1070 i installed
    Because i didn't do any benchmark with 880m

    All i can say is that for example, no man's sky, i couldn't play on maximum quality because game play became slow and unresponsive. But with 1070 it was smooth. Not a single delay nor slowness.

    But, it died. My laptop. So, can't help you much.

    Yes....
    I don't know

    Seems like it was some circuit or something

    I was playing a game and then suddenly the laptop turned off

    And afterwards, i tried several times but it only turned on and after a few seconds off.(even fan didn't turned on)

    Then, i dissawembled all, checked it, and assemblied again and turned on. and fan turned.on but no screen, no keyboard.
    So, i declared officialy dead.

    i'm so sorry for your loss
    maybe you can salvage the parts like the heatsinks and the screen and sell them
    please try to send it to a maintenance center near you so might someone help

    You can ask svet if he can make a BIOS for you with microcude abuse for the 4720HQ, that way its going to be unlocked. Given the performance of the GT 72s cooling you likely can go up to 4.2 - 4.4ghz while maintaining around low 80s c in games without severe modding.

    When I tried to OC mine it crashed at 3.9Ghz, but I think I forgot to remove my undervolt first lol, still scored around 760-780CB on CB R15 before it crashed.
