78C way too high/stock clocks, even for a 560M 75W heat sink (proper heat sink 580M/675M 100W #MT1DN), clearly poor contact between the GPU die and heat sink + components (thermal pads) or heat sink radiator incl fan are clogged with dust...GPU fan working correctly?

 

1- After extracting driver package delete the following folders:

Display.Optimus
Display.Update
GFExperience
GFExperience.NvStreamSrv
GfExperienceService
LEDVisualizer
MS.NET
MSVCRT
Network.Service
NV3DVision
NV3DVisionUSB.Driver
NvVAD
ShadowPlay
ShieldWirelessController
Update.Core

 

2-  Display.Driver folder, copy/overwrite nv_dispi.inf  -> run setup.exe

 

 

 

How can i get the proper heat sink? I never could actually find anyone selling them?  any ideas??  I'll post a pic of the hardware in just a second, when i shut this off and pull the bottom off.  Let me know what you see.  As far as the fan I do believe its working correctly, no way to determine if it's not??  I will pull the heat sink out and clean it out, but pretty sure I did that recently and it's not clogged with any kind of dust (well not enough to stop the fans from doing their jobs).  Any other ideas please let me know.

ill work on it more tomorrow.  here's a pic of the bottom of the rig. isn't that the 100w heatsink?  I thought I remembered reading something about the 100w one having 3 heat dissipation pipes.  I cleaned everything out with bottled air (which I've done recently as well) pretty sure they weren't clogged.  I'll probably pull everything tomorrow do a complete re-install new paste etc. check everything again and see how it works, but at this point I'm not convinced its' going to run any cooler.  How can I check to make sure the gpu fan is operationally sound, I've watched it kick on and start running, id say it was somewhere around 60c when I kicked on, but id need to test that again, I only looked at it once while I had the bottom plates off and was loading into a few games to see while monitoring with gpu-z....  lemme know what you think.

Yep, triple pipe heat sink for 560M/660M 75W #J9H7X http://dell-spare-parts.info/catalog/product_info.php/products_id/227538/osCsid/49d66e0a8c7a7062a9ce692ad599a99a

Rearrange thermal pads, look for gaps (against light) then use a thin sheet of paper to check contact...finally apply the thermal paste.

 

 

Proper 100W Heat sinks:

675M 100W #MT1DN $55.67 http://dell-spare-parts.info/catalog/product_info.php/products_id/229053/osCsid/49d66e0a8c7a7062a9ce692ad599a99a

680M 100W #9CNMG $54.49 http://dell-spare-parts.info/catalog/product_info.php/products_id/224279/osCsid/49d66e0a8c7a7062a9ce692ad599a99a

 

Thermal issue resolved, you could try flashing svl7's vBIOS for Clevo GTX 680m (4GB version) improved performance including throttling...

Hey j95, Fan of your work here..... ^^

 

I often use Shadowplay for capture and reporting a cheater during online play. Since you told us to delete some folder mention it above, it's this process optional ? I don't need GFE, but I need it to activate my Shadowplay feature. if it's optional, which folder should I keep if I still want to use it ?

 

Appreciate your help.... ^^

Avoid GFE at all costs...instead, use MSI AB v4.2  (see warning above) or Bandicam / Action.

Device manager -> Disable 970M

Latest GPU-Z -> dump current vBIOS  -> check vram '6GB version'.

Copy extracted "GTX970M_6GB_MXM_OC_PM v2" to desktop (GTX 970M 6GB)

Rename .rom "970M.rom"

 

 

GTX970M_6GB_MXM_OC_PM v2 -> SHIFT right click "Open command window here"
nvflash.exe -6 970M.rom
Type "Y" twice (to override PCI subsystem ID mismatches)

"Flash successful" -> device manager -> re-enable 970M -> reboot *otherwise* repeat the steps above.

I still don't have download rights so I tried to edit the driver myself.

 

Im on an Alienware m18x r2.

I'm on stock bios A12. I'm on windows 10 home on uefi with secure boot turned off.

CPU Z sees the card fine and the fan is running.

 

Following the guide at http://null-bin.blogspot.ca/2015/08/how-to-modify-nvidia-notebook-driver.html

 

I edited the nvdmi.inf for dell/alienware

My hardware id is:

PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_13D7&SUBSYS_05501028&REV_A1

So i put

 %NVIDIA_DEV.13D7.0550.1028% = Section227, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_13D7&SUBSYS_05501028 

in the right place and added 

NVIDIA_DEV.13D7.0550.1028 = "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M"

to the [strings] section

I turned off driver signing.

Deleted all the folders except the ones listed in this post.

Ran setup as admin.

The red unsigned driver windows popped up and I said install anyway.

Then almost immediately the install fails.  It says HD Audio not installed and driver install failed.

 

Can someone please help me please.

install all your windows updates and hardware before installing the graphics driver on a fresh install. 

 

go to custom installation : and just install the driver, and the physx

 

forget about the HD sound driver for the HMDI unless you use external 7.1 through the HDMI or something. (Isn't that what it does?)

Windows is up to date.  No more downloads when I check for updates.

When installing, select option to custom install. Then just install the driver and the phsyx or whatever. see if that works. I never install the geforce bloatware or the hd driver thingy

go to install, but then custom, and select only what you want to install.  I think everything is there.

I'm trying to install 368.38.  I''ve deleted everything from the install package but the folders specified.  The option don't show physx.  Just hd audio and driver.

 

The hd audio driver never gets a chance to try to install. The display driver fails and the install process stops.

 

If I only check display driver it does the same thing.

BREAKTHROUGH!

I had the wrong Section number.

When I put in %NVIDIA_DEV.13D7.0550.1028% = Section227, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_13D7&SUBSYS_05501028

I used the section from a different card not the 13d7.

The section should be 115 116 0r 117. I just entered all three.

%NVIDIA_DEV.13D7.0550.1028% = Section115, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_13D7&SUBSYS_05501028 

%NVIDIA_DEV.13D7.0550.1028% = Section116, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_13D7&SUBSYS_05501028 

%NVIDIA_DEV.13D7.0550.1028% = Section117, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_13D7&SUBSYS_05501028 

 

and the driver installed.

Now to see how well it does on some Division.

Try NVFLASH_WIN_5.218_x64 (password premamod.com)

 

GTX970M_6GB_MXM_OC_PM_v2

 

When prompted...type Y  to override PCI subsystem ID mismatches.

@J95 thanks a bunch for pointing me to  Swick1981's unlocked bios and throttling workaround!:frantics:

Just worth mentioning for whoever is reading this thread and having throttle issues on M18xR2, the "GFX switching" (using unlocked bios) on cold boot ACTUALLY works wonders!

Things haven't ran this smooth since the day I bought my machine

Not to mention all the priceless tweaks unlocked :D

 

The beast is back :super: (M18xR2)

thanks again to @Swick1981 , @Prema & @J95

I tried to flash in dedicated and then reboot safe mode but ..... I get Unable to start service :(  ( though it might be worth noting I don't know why Driver was not recognized in dedicated mode ) is that important ?

It work fine when I switched back to Optimus mode

No problem...:woot:

Try PEG MOD v368.25  ↓↓↓

I am not doing the GFX switch. Just cold boot. I usually cold boot with battery and when windows load, I plug the AC. Recon 3Di disappearing problem is also gone this way, and no throttling with the 368 drivers!!!!

      Hello, 
       
      some of my computer specs are as follows: 
      CPU: I9-9900k
      GPU: RTX 2070
      memory: 32 GB (forget the manufacturer/ clocks)
      Dsanke bios mod
       
       
       I recently bought a 1440p screen that is 120hz capable, but it does not allow me to select the 120hz option. I have checked numerous places and all of the websites say that this screen is 120hz enabled. I have the dsanke bios mod on my computer. I see people being able to use this screen's 120hz functionality, but I can't get it to work. Any suggestions? If you need any additional information about my laptop, I will be happy to provide info.
