Hi guys, I've read this thread carefully and figured i'd give it a shot. I flashed the bios using Sillvan's version of the aflash2 utility, as for me aswell, the other options didnt work. (latest version of aflash2 gave me an error asking me to update or something vague) So after flashing i checked GPU-Z but still saw the 0.9v there, as if nothing has changed. After i flashed the bios gpu shark: http://i.imgur.com/DxC5x.png I decided to flash back the Original 207 bios file taken from the asus website and gpu shark reads the same voltages http://i.imgur.com/4cIFh.png. Does this have anything to do with the revision of my graphics chip? Here's my main tab of gpuz http://gpuz.techpowerup.com/12/11/16/eqd.png also, the laptop model is N55SF-EH71

Possibly, can't remember whether there was more than one vbios in the bios...

can i request a mod for my asus notebook i dont like hijacking threads but im a new user i guess i cant open new threads i have an asus notebook which have cpu throttle problems at 85C i took a look at the bios with amibcp found nothing suspicious my bios settings for cpu throttle is set to 95C but somehow some software getting cpu speed control rights and throttle it at 85C throttlestop does nothing and there is no prochot# option at bios which enables software controlling of throttle states only thing im guessing its related with prochot# i found in bios is named PCHHOT# which set to 0 how can i make my controller ignore software throttle requests to get my cpu throttled at bios passive thermal trip point can you hlp me svl? can anyone help me my notebook is asus k56cb i5 3317u gt740m gddr3 2gb

For some reason the upped voltage does not stick on my machine. I've tried flashing twice, but it still shows 0.9000V in GPU-Z. I was using the AFLASH2 posted earlier in this thread, and it seemed to update the bios.

Am i doing something wrong?

well, the bios still won't flash, the one you uploaded recently has the same modified date as the volt mod bios, so winflash still says that its an older version and doesn't let me flash back :baffle: any ideas on how to "modify" the bios to change its date so I can flash it? can you possible change some strings in it then change them back to normal so I can flash it? In the mean time I have been trying a whole bunch of different flash tools and none of them have worked.

+1 yes i have tried that and the same result...

Is it flashable from within windows? And also how do you stress test if your GPU is stable at different clocks? Sorry i'm kind of a noob at OC'ing the GPU.

me too.

I suppose this mod could not unlock such voltage level.

I thoroughly analyse the bios and surprisingly find out that there are two vbios in it, which is for gt555m and gt540m.

svl7 moded the wrong one, which for gt540m. As a result, the voltage level of gt555m has not been touched.

Moreover, the gt555m in ASUS N55SF has reached its highest voltage in default-for its highest clock rate.

There is no higher voltage level ever.

So the fact is we cannot do anything with the voltage.

has anyone ever noticed problems such as the computer shutting down itself?

i did not do the overvoltage i just underclocked a bit the cpu (and now the pc works fine without becoming a oven after 5 minutes) it gives me temp of 45-56° which are ok for windows use (i set the cpu multiplier to 15)

But now the strangest thing happens, if i try to do the test of windows index level, when it makes tests with the gpu, the computer just shuts down for like 2 seconds and then it reboots. Quite dangerous for my external hard drives connected too!

But most importantly i tried to load skyrim and durng the intro it did shut down again!

I now ordered compressed air and thermalpaste and will open the computer and clean it, but i fear it may not be enough!

Is there a way to control the speed of the gpu and be sure it doesn't go into extreme values?!?!

Thanks and sorry for the newbie questions.

Also, how can i access the bios of my pc and see what version i have? when i turn the computer on, i only see the asus screen and then windows loads, doesn't mention a key to press to enter bios...

Good afternoon, I am interested in applying the mod to my Asus N55SF notebook, but after looking up my VGA (GF555m) it seems that my VGA is an older model of the 555 series it's an earlier Jan 6 2011 Edition compared to the June edition you have tested it on. Do you think the mod will work on the older edition of the VGA? Thanks in advance.

Thanks a lot i'm waiting when i have permission to download and test it  good job

EDIT: The flush utility didn't work so i went to bios to flush it, it said older version can't update something like that? Please help i'm using windows 10.

Hello, found this site on google on search to resolve my problem. and i think i am close...

So i have Asus N75SF then mbo died and got N75SL from the seller, now my GT555M is seen as GT635M which is basicaly the same gpu GF116 but it keeps crashing and i think it has to do with lower volts on the GT635M profile, gpuz reports highest voltage to be 0.9V so i downclock the gpu so it doesnt crash from default 675mhz on the core to 425mhz already its getting lower every few months (hope its not dying). So as you wrote vbios is part of the main mbo bios and it cant be dumped via gpuz i wanted to ask for help on editing the N75SL bios or just to give me directions i have some experience with bios modding...

please svl7 if you can help contact me, thx

The Asus N55SF comes with a Nvidia GT 555m, which has already been proven to be highly overclockable by Alienware M14x users. M14x owners have already the possibility to slightly increase the voltage of their GPU by using a slightly -voltage-increase-nvidia-gt-555m-7.html#post12003"]modified VBIOS.

Here's a similar mod for N55SF users. The modified VBIOS will increase the voltage of the GPU by about 0.1V which will allow you further overclock your GPU core. (Note: The graphics memory isn't affected by this mod, you won't be able to clock it higher than before)

Instructions:

Since the VBIOS is part of the system BIOS you need to flash the whole BIOS in order to make use of the mod.

Flash the file with your preferred BIOS flashing utility, e.g. with the one provided by Asus (click here).

- Only flash with the battery and AC adapter plugged in to your system

After flashing I highly recommend to go to the BIOS menu and load the default settings. Then reboot and if you want reset your custom settings.

Verify the increased GPU voltage by using GPU-Z or a similar GPU monitoring tool. Note: Only the voltage of the 3d performance profile gets increased, in order to see it your GPU needs to clock up to 3d clocks.

post-80-14494992043354_thumb.png

Also make sure your system is free of dust and check your temps when you first use this BIOS, the voltage increase will also slightly increase the GPU load temps, but it should be well in the thermal envelope of the system.

Thank goes to the following people:

@Saltius for modding the VBIOS

@Angelsky for testing the modded BIOS and providing pics

@svl7 for locating the VBIOS file and extracting & repacking the BIOS

Let me know if you have any questions or encounter some issues.

Have fun overclocking your system!

If you have questions, let me know! Also if you encounter any issues, please report back.

As always with such mods, you are responsible for your system and changes you make.

thanks.

      As it got pretty difficult for me to keep track of all the mod requests I decided to make a separate thread for bios / vbios modification requests. I hope it will make it easier for me to fulfill as many requests as possible.
      If you want to request a mod make sure you read through the following guidelines / rules, posts that do not comply with them will be deleted without further notice.
      Rules:
      You need to have a minimum of five approved posts (or 'T|I elite' status) in order to request a mod. Make sure I didn't already modify the corresponding bios / vbios. When posting a request you agree to flash and test the mod once it's done and post some feedback. (If you don't plan on using the mod then don't bother posting.) I only modify stock firmware. I don't work on anything that has already been tampered with.
      . For BIOS mods I need a link to an original BIOS update directly from the vendor (no mirror link) and most likely a dump of your BIOS (see instructions below).
      I only work on the latest BIOS versions unless there's a very specific reason for using an older one (in this case you need to specify so).
      In addition to this I need a dump of your BIOS as well as some additional information, read the "BIOS backup" section below, provide all the specified files.
      . For VBIOS mods I need a copy of your original vbios. (Only as attachment in a post here or per link to cloud storage such as dropbox, gdrive etc. per PM, filehosters are not accepted). No custom GPU clock requests unless it is for some reason not possible to overclock the corresponding system / GPU per software. No Windows activation mods. Check MDL for this kind of request. I can't guarantee that I will be able to fulfill a request.
      While I will try to keep it fair and consider the order of the requests at least up to a certain degree I will generally work on what I want and feel up to. Popular requests might be treated with higher priority.
      BIOS backup:
      For Intel 7 series chipsets run the attached flashChk tool from DOS and post the created flashchk.bin file (as attachment).
      Also grab this tool, run the backup.bat and send me created file. You will need to run it as administrator. If it reports and issue with the PCIe driver you have a crappy AV software and need to disable it temporarily.
      If you don't use Windows let me know and I will provide a different tool.
      For systems using the 8 series chipsets run the attached flashChk tool from DOS and post the created flashchk.bin file (as attachment) and wait for further instructions.
      - Thread under construction, more information will be added -

      Hello everyone! I'm trying to modify vbios of my laptop to overcome +135MHz limitation on core clock.
      I successfully got bios from memory and extracted vbios module. After modifying it I replaced original one and flashed bios back.
      Bios itself chaged because hidden menus which I unlocked appeared, but clocks on card stayed untouched.
      Is there any additional requirements for vbios to make it work? I even dumped bios again after flashing and vbios module was modified.
      May it be a driver problem? I have Win10 with 350.62.
      If someone knows what the problem is, pls help.
      P.S. I'm pretty sure that my card is able to work properly on higher clocks because there wasn't any problem on +135 under full load and temp was never reached 60C.

      This thread will be dedicated to @svl7 creating some nice vbios mods for the T|I Titan enthusiast community. Remember, do not distribute these outside T|I when the vbios is released and always give credit (svl7) when its due and buy him a beer as appreciation (he loves his beer).
