    Txordi,
    I'm waiting for the thermal paste to do the job. I already got the gtx1070
    I also upgraded the HDD, and I'm waiting for the SSD external case for the disco cloning and change of the SSD (3 of them)
    I think I'll start and finish modification by February.

    Woah. Amazing. So you achieved fitting the 1070 in the GT70 chasis & heatsink!? This is huge man!!! :)

    You will get a monster laptop fully updated at the end!

    erm....
    No, I havent done anything yet. I haven't see if it fits or need something to be done.
    I haven't removed the Graphic card since it a PC I'm using.
    that's why I'm waiting for the thermal paste, so I can do the change in a jiffy (if it's going to be in a jiffy)

    Just an update.
    I changed the HDD, from 1TB to 4TB. as it was a backup disk (where I store xxx pics, videos, games and all the stuff I download and... eventually get decompressed) it was a piece of cake.
    but the SSD... boy I suffered.
    all because of the backup programs or cloning programs or the name it must be called.
    the thing is I made or supposedly made a image from my previous OS with all the things in it. but then, it didn't work. windows won't start up and keeps showing an error.
    so, i had to clean install all.
    I'm still recovering. the office I had, which I bought in japan, no longer works here (I'm in mexico now)
    so, I'll have to buy a new office soon.
    and.. well, the thermal paste (and also bought thermal pad (later I learned that I might not need it, but anyway) and... oh I have to purchase a cleaner. so, it might be longer than expected.
    the thermal paste, as I was saying, will arrive, hopefully this week, if not the next. and I hope by that time I can have the cleaner..., does it really have to be removed by the cleaner? or it's just because it's convenient?

    You can safely go with the typical 96° alcohol. Keep it easy man!

    that's a good recommendation. definitively will go with alcohol.
    and by the way, I knew I have seen you somewhere else. it was here! Txordi
