Does the Quadro RTX 3000 fit the M17x R4?

So I've seen a few posts with the M18x R2 with a Quadro RTX 3000 and the like, but none in the 17x R4 so my curiosity is whether or not it actually would work in the machine. I know that some people have put P4000 Quadro, which is good to hear. But does it not fit in the machine? Or is it a limitation of the machine itself? I know that the RTX 3000 are...not cheap, but atleast getting some confirmation that it works would be good enough for me.

If you are referring to the "standard mxm 3.0b" RTX 3000 I put in my M18xR2, then it will fit in M17xR4 fine. The problem is, they are almost impossible to find. 

 

The ones you can find are the HP RTX 3000 which are wider and longer than a standard mxm 3.0b card. These will not fit without significant chassis mods. 

 

Your best bet is a P4000 ($280 on eBay) or P5000 (~$450 on eBay) as an upgrade.

That was what I wanted to know. I appreciate the answer. That said, do you know if it's also possible to upgrade the WiFi on the M17xR4 to WiFi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2 as you have? That is another question I had. I know there are adapters that go from M.2 to mPCI-E but I would assume that makes it more difficult to close everything up.

No need for adapters

I have these in all of my alienwares. Even M14xR1/M17xR3 work fine.

Just adding on, I have slotted Intel AX200 in M17x R4 using cable and slot adapters. It requires a small amount of chassis modification to fit, but worked fine and was pulling speeds in excess of 400 mbps.
