GMP Posted August 13, 2022 Share Posted August 13, 2022 Hi all, I was hoping to get some advice on this. I've been going back and forth between upgrading to an RTX 3000 or an GTX 1070. Since I have the chance to buy a GTX 1070 for very cheap right now, I decided to do that and maybe upgrade to an RTX 5000 at a later stage. The GTX 1070 in question is this one, I think it's an MSI one: I have a couple of questions: 1) I know it's a bit larger than MXM 3.0b standard but with cutting the MXM slot in the corners and modding the (Nvidia 100W) heatsink a little bit, should I be able to fit it? I can't seem to find any example online of someone using this specific card it seems. 2) Will the 120W power draw be fine in the 100W MXM slot? Or will I experience throttling because of this? And if it's a problem, will I be able to fix this? (with altered vbios for example). If anyone has an answer to either of these questions, that would be awesome. Thanks!
