alright so i took the plunge and ordered the g751jy mobo. I havent ordered the 230w adapter and the bottom case yet. If im able to detect the gpu then ill order both and be that lucky guy. I always wanted to own gtx980m which isnt better than 1060 but the difference isnt that big yet it feels better to have a top tier 9xx series card what gives

well guys, guess what, after hours of disassembling the old 965m mobo and after thermal pasting 980m mobo,

………………………….. it worked, took hours but everything turned out great.

So now my specs are i7-4870, gtx 980m, 16gb, 1x 1TB, 1x 140GB, this is so cool.

wifi and everything works, the only thing that doesnt work are the 3 USB ports, will have to figure that out since out of the 3 non working USB ports 2 are old ones which were never replaced. Will have to check the 3.5mms and hdmi.

Very happy to see 980m in device manager though:)

Well the external dimensions of the G751JL and G751JY are the same but....?

Is there a parts supplier that will take returns if it doesn't fit?

Some may be able to help if you send clear photos of your motherboard.

I noticed one sight on AliExpress that suggested this.

Good luck!

Let us know how it goes.

thats the thing the asus page is not able to deliver the right dimensions. while the seller insists the board is same and he literally took several pictures of both boards placed side by side/ and on top. What i see is both jt and jy have thicker bottom case to incorporate better cooling for 970m and 980m respectively. If everything goes right then we're talking about 200$ upgrade for gtx 965m to gtx980m and since my g751jl gpu is dead i either save 200$ and get same board by paying 150$ just for the mobo and be done or spend 170$ for jy mobo, 87$ for 230w adapter and 80$ for jy bottom case.
