MSI GT70-0ND GTX675m swap to GTX980m


Recommended Posts

Hello guys hoping you can help me out here.


I recently picked up a gigabyte p35x v3 cf2 with a gtx980m i also have a msi gt70-0nd with a gtx675m. Unfortunately the msi's video card burnt out about a year ago but it is a much better machine for me. It stays much cooler and has a better screen/touchpad/keyboard. The p35x also gets way to hot and the motherboard has already died on me once, i believe the thermal solution in the gigabyte just cant handle gaming even with a cooling pad. During gaming i would see 95*+ on the cpu and the whole wrist pad gets very hot. My gt70 would only see 80*+ during heavy gaming and i don't need to carry around a cooling pad with it. Anyway i want to swap the videocard over from the p35x to the gt70, has anyone done this with success? I believe i could just flash the vbios with the MSI version avaliable from tech-powerUP. I am wondering about the heatsink, i work as a designer at a business with several CNC-vertical mills so i could fab something up just wondering if anyone has attempted this as it seems every gtx675 out there has burned itself out by now.

About heatsink, look at the pictures which posted Bloetschkopf in this thread:  https://www.techinferno.com/index.php?/forums/topic/8008-msi-gt70-mxm-card/

About vbios, yes you are right,  just flash the vbios with the MSI version avaliable from tech-powerUP, and all be ok. Of course before you try to do it, you should flash latest stock system bios into your laptop. Version 51X.
