    I can confirm that EURO GTX 1070 MXM is a success after all for M18x R2. Hats off for the @woodzstack for his effort and making it possible. He is one of the nicest human being i have come across in ages... super cooperative and helpful through out the whole process. look forward for more purchases in future from him as well.

    god bless you my friend

    Happily with great @woodzstack help I have transformed my aging m17xR4 into back again gaming machine installing 1060M (or N:)). Woodzstock gives excellent support and help. Prices are good and delivery fast.
    Many thanks my friend.

    After having problem with my temps, I reached to woodzstack who lives close to me.

    After some chatting, he decided that a repaste and repad was needed.

    He did all sort of tricks, because he's a magician.

    Now, my 8700k and my 1080 works like a charm; Barely breaking the 70s for the CPU AND GPU (Yes, that's right, a 1080 barely breaking 70 during gaming in a laptop)

    It was worth the money, it was worth the wait, I will love @woodzstack forever.

    ah so you got it today ? Awesome, 1 day shipping, overnight for so cheap, like I told you !

    Yeah your laptop was a tough nut to crack, I mean I had to do better than EUROCOM's second attempt to fix your temps. It's sad that I succeeded, but good for us !

    Remember what I said though, without shims they do not make perfect contact, but I did my best to make it make as much contact as possible, if you use the laptop in the winter from a very cold boot, and the temps seem worse, let me know, that could be a sign of the metal shrinking and contact worsening, if not at the least while its summer and humid and warm it should be making perfect contact while in use, but let me know if anything arises in the future. Better to be safe then sorry, and you might not have any issues at all too.

    Also, it was a pleasure working on your laptop and hope to do business with you in the future again !

    I am currently working with Woodstacks to upgrade my Clevo P770 DM-G

    originally we had a EURO GTX 1070 sent out to us which indeed booted up to microsoft basic display so was encouraged, after help from Woodstacks I modded the drivers and managed to install the card fully, upon testing HEAVEN BENCH we saw some really impressive scores so I continued on to game testing with BATTLEFIELD 1, while this ran well when it was running it would crash quickly with a white screen.


    After contacting him about the issue he mentioned some known issues with BATTLEFIELD games and aftermarket GPUS so I persevered and tried testing in other games to have the same issue, and eventually Bang sparks and a dull ache in my stomach thinking the worst, indeed the card had spectacularly blown and burned at component level.

    We have arranged a return that he says has been received and replaced and has been sent out to me, so our journey continues, will update as we go on

    It was a resistor on the back that had blown, that can happen to almost any card at anytime, there was nothing spectacular about it. I had this happen to me on a speed control recently, same 100k Ohm resistors, the usual large current going through, and randomly sparks and blowing.

    Anyways, I would not suggest it is going to happen again, and sorry it happened in the first place for what it is worth, I would recommend some EM shielding in the area where the component blew up, it could have been extra heat or EM from that area of the motherboard that helped trigger it too. In Alienware's it actually was the case with AW17's and why we created these TEP modules for them.

    But - the card replacement is sent out, I believe, actually you should have it about by now, but hard to predict around holidays, so maybe 1-2 days at the most ? Let us know, and hopefully no more snags. These cards are essentially ONLY used for aftermarket upgrades in the absence of direct support from NVidia, so we essentially try our best to support as many models as possible, but it's difficult to get everything right when there are so many intricacies, but we try our best. Cheers and thank you for the business as usual too, always appreciate that !

    Hey @woodzstack just dropping in to say thanks for the 980M and IC Diamond I bought on your eBay store. That was 3 years ago now and the 980M has since found a new owner but it served me well. The IC Diamond is always going to be useful down the road. Cheers.
