Hello guys, How did it end? Was the motherboard with 960 compatible with the one with 860?

Hello Malike84, Thanks for the update.

 

I am getting the 960M motherboard. I will keep you posted. ;)

I really hope it works, as I have to get the motherboard from US and it will cost atleast 40 Euros to ship it back!

 

Sammy

As stated earlier I haven't tried it myself and can therefore not promise anything. All I can say is that I've been told it should work fine. 

 

I've had the entire laptop reassembled my self at home and that part is pretty straightforward.

 

I hope you will succeed.

For what it's worth, I got the one with 4710hq and 4gb 860m intead of the 4720hq and 2gb 860m I had originally. It has been working fine since.

A quick update.

 

I have got the motherboard with i7 4720 and GTX960 4GB. 

It works !!!!

 

There is a difference in performance too. But I have swapped my SSHD with SSD (Samsung Evo 850 500GB), maybe that is a contributing factor as well!

 

So, anyone out there who wants to swap their 860 motherboards, go ahead!

 

Regards,

Samy
