Can I make an change/upgrade of my GT70 2PE Dominator?
if I can, can someone tell me where I can find what to do or how?
also, anyone know how much SDD can i place as maximum? I know there is a spec in MSI site, that says max. 384GB or something but... can I place 3 500GB SSD?

do you have a photo of your heat sink? do you have a photo of your old card?


this is a msi gtx1060



You need to check if there is enough space for a gtx1070 in you laptop
this is a msi gtx1070


this is a gecube gtx1070


or a zotac gtx1070 (you can find it in a zotac magnus zbox en1070 or er1070

Yes they do. On the first page of this link. You're not reading thoroughly enough, apparently. Unless I'm misunderstanding your question.

um yes. sorry I admit. I haven't gone to page 334.
but there doesn''t say what I have to do.
or.. I don't have to modify anything?
just insert the 1070M?
I read it says it's compatible to GT70


 


I only read the procedure for putting in a 970/980 at the link mentioned in my last post to you. It appears to have all directions for that swap included in the first post.

As for the link to the procedure for the 1070, I haven't read far enough into the thread to determine if it has all the directions needed. Sorry. :( But at the very least, it looks like some modding of the heatsink assembly would be needed, similar but not identical to the procedure for the 970/980 in the link in my last post.
