    76C is a nice temp, I could only get that with the rear of the tablet raised on bottle caps, I presume yours was raised too?:)

    I need to test mine again now that it sits on a laptop cooler (notepal u3 plus) and see what temps I will get.

    Is a TDP mod a complex thing?

    I have mine propped up on a Cooler Master NotePal U3 PLUS with fans blowing in the fan inlets. i discovered this "laptop" doesn't like being in an actual lap without one.

    Also, the 1070 I have fits perfectly with the 5G1VJ heat sink. No grinding and no raised keyboard or any bulges under the trim. Like they were made for each other. The one small issue is that there are one or two small gaps where there are components on the card. I think the 980m was the same to be honest.

    Must be that the standard mxm 1070 doesnt have the tall VRMs in the area I outlined in red on the attachment. The MSI variant does...

    I have also just run Time Spy and the temps have improved with the notepal pad, it used to be 78 before. It doesnt actually draw 135W here it draws that much when I play Witcher 3. What is the performance limit reliability voltage, anybody know?

    Hey @Homer S how is the 1070 going? I'm pretty close to pulling the trigger on a 1060 or 1070 for my M18x. Thinking of getting the 1070 from @Rengsey R. H. Jr.
