    Should have gotten a 1060 MSI card which is standard size MXM 3.0b and its a great match for that single fan laptop. The 1070 would have overheated anyways. Return that card if you can and grab a cheaper 1060 and that laptop will be a powerhouse again.

    Our GTX 1070 comes with 95W VBIOS so thermal spec is the same as GTX 980M. Then you can O/C if you have enough power in your laptop. For GTX 1070 you need 230W AC adapter or higher. GTX 1060 costs less but you get lower performance too.

    Go with MSI 1060 GTX for your GT70. Or try Eurocom 1070 GTX if you really want one.

    Experience....

    The power supply is 230W but can only be used up to 180W. Motherboard?
    It needs more than 180W, but it is still good.Under the laptop load, use the battery.

    Uh... This is sad man :(. I hope you get your money back and you can try again with a 1060 or Eurocom 1070.

    I can not see all your images. Which laptop are you using? And yes, GT70 is 180W input limited by the absurd NOS system. When it needs more it starts using battery power, even if you have a >180W adapter.
