  1. The blue PCB gtx 1070s have known issues, these card were specifically produced for clevo's. The black PCB 1070s should work properly. Some experience throttling which can be solved by setting your machine to hibernate and waking it back up. https://www.ebay.com/itm/164899268286?hash=item2664c326be:g:AgUAAOSwZohguzrt That being said, I've done this upgrade around 4 years ago. Back then the upgrade was worth putting the effort in but nowadays I would recommended purchasing a new laptop. The process of upgrading to a 1070 isn't just inserting the card and plugging a 120hz 3d panel in. Let me sum up all the steps for you: You would need to edit the case, since the 1070 would hit a part and it would short circuit (I recommend taking the whole laptop apart, if you accidentally hit your motherboard during this process, you're back to square one) The 2 mxm sliders on the left and right would have to be removed since the card is thicker than the HD7970m A 3D panel is required You would need to mod your bios to a custom A11 version that allows you to set your videotype to GPU only You need to mod the heatsink for it to properly fit on the 1070, if you mount the heatsink as is and screw it in place, you'll destroy your 1070 Every step has a risk and requires time. Taking the costs of a 1070, 3D panel and possibly the tool necessary to mod your casing, in my personal opinion it wouldn't be worth it in the end. But in case you really want to, I can answer all your questions and show you pictures of the complete process.
  2. Very epic my dude. I'm rocking the exact same build with the added addition of replacing the black layout for the nebula red one. I also have a 3 copper heatsink for the cpu, paired with the m14x fan and liquid metal my cpu runs at 4.5 ghz. Unfortunately after 1-5 minutes it clocks down to 3.9~4.0, even though the temps are between the 80-85 which is perfectly acceptable. I have no clue why your gpu fan doesn't work properly though. The only explanation that I can think of is because you might need the unlocked bios for that, which I have.
  3. Put your laptop to hibernate and wake it up
  4. Yeah sorry unfortunately I do not have enough information to give you a concrete answer.. I don't think it'll recognize the gpu until you can load it's uefi drivers and get it properly installed, I mean bios isn't that important as long as windows detecs the gpu.
  5. If your system is partitioned with MBR then yes
  6. In the unlocked bios set video options to "SG", check if windows detecs the graphics card. You might find a clue here,
  7. During this process the video option was set to PEG or auto, there's a good chance it switched to your intel gpu while updating the drivers.
  8. I don't think the heatsink you mentioned will work, the R5 has a slightly different dimention, a 4th pipe won't fit on top. I don't know what the experience is from other users but the heatsink I bought from taobao gave me a 12 degrees drop compared to the stock heatsink (tested with mx-4 thermal paste) after that I applied the thermal grizzly liquid metal which gave another 15 degrees drop.
  9. Sounds like a lot of effort with a lot of risk. Personally I bought this heatsink from taobao through yoybuy. The heatsink with the m14x fan mod and liquid metal from thermal grizzly keeps the temps easily below 85 degrees with a 4.5 overclock on all 4 cores.
  10. Sounds like your video card or motherboard died, bit difficult to test that since you got the 3D screen and the intel gpu doesn't work with that. I think your best guess is buying a cheap videocard, e.g. gtx 675m, gtx765m and test if those work.
  11. I believe that it was said before that without legacy turned on windows 7 won't work, I believe you need to use windows 8.1 or 10 if you want to run full uefi.
  12. Give the A11 unlocked bios a try and set the video option to PEG rather than trying to use FN+F7.
  13. I'm starting to question if this might be a bug in the latest nvidia drivers. https://we.tl/b4Hlxff1y5 I uploaded nvidia driver 397.64 in a zip archive, modded the inf with your ID's, give that a try.
  14. Weird, I'm afraid I can't help you any further then, if I had a gtx980m myself I could've tried some things :-/
  15. What if you use DDU to uninstall the driver and then right-click on the gtx980m and select update driver and then use the browse driver menu to refer to the nvidia driver?
