I dont know if this is the right forum to post this,  (but i need 5 posts for downloading a  vbios)

 

so my questions are these, thank you in advance for reading

 

I have bought a laptop with a half melted 880M GPU Im assuming the person did not keep an eye on temps,

so i went and replaced the card, it runs fine, (alright) but still, I remember modding my VBIOS for my 680 GTX back in the day, and it was fine, exceptionally faster, 

and im looking for that 60 fps LOCK, like i got on my 680 after modding the vbios, 

 

I did increase the voltage on the card to 1.212 I believe, from 1.114 , :P

 

anyway I considering modding the cooling system as well for this laptop, because it definitely lacks cooling 

My plan is to put another laptop fan (where the HDD1 bay is in the Alienware 17) bcause I removed that hdd it was constantly at 57c which is bad

even think it suffered some damage as speeds on it for specific games and tasks are pretty long, and it stays at 100% some times, which is weird, but it still works, so im using it.lol

 

, but in the meantime, I turned the laptop upside down, plugged in the HDMI cable, and now im blasting a ROOM fan at it, which is definitely helping with temps

before I would try to throttle the gpu speed at 77C, or 73C depending on the game or even saying screw it, I dont want throttling, and putting the throttle point to 83C,

I use SPEEDFAN , and it helps keep the laptop relativly cool, except when the gpu is under full load,  putting my hand on it is ridiculously hot, so, with the fan on it, its not going above 70,

and taking a LONG time to get up there, 

i am playing metro last light at around 60C at 60+ fps, where as before my temps were shooting upto 80 and it would hit the throttle point, so  seeing as how this is a 120 HZ laptop, I rather not push it, since the card is not capable (and if it is, the cooling sure isnt)

 

the plan is to put the fan inside the HDD1 bay, and POSSIBLY  daisey chain it to either A) the cpu fan header, or  B ) the gpu fan hjeader, 

 

QUESTION:

not sure which "rails" the power for these comes from, would it be able to handle another fan???

it seems like a legit idea, seeing as how the rear of the heatsink has NO heat dissipation at all. which is the part that melted offcausing the old  card to die in the first place.

basically the thermal pads look like they gunked the card and it was unfixable, I have a post to it on the Alienware Forum, which i could link later,

 

is it a good idea, and will the VBIOS WORK with my 880M (DELL) from a clevo, (now in an alienware) im assuming they are compatible, as long as they are dell.

also would I be able to get a Y adapter for the inside of a laptop fan, that would be AMAZING, i know they sell them for Desktops.

Thanks

looking at the tutorial video right now, ill just download the bin and compare it to stock then edit my own bin file, and flash that, since flashing the wrong one could brick the card,

      Hey guys, I am Grga and i am new here. I rarely use forums but i am desperate in this case.
      So, as i have seen many of you have had the issue with obsolete BIOS versions for clevo P7xxZM machines,
      So i would like to hear your experiences and how you went about it. 
      I have recently bought an ssd Samsung 970 PRO NVMe M.2. From which i would like to boot the windows10.
      Little did i know that there was no support for that kind of protocol in the BIOS or that there is such thing as UEFI (for which i am still not sure what that is exactly, except some kind of successor of BIOS).
      So i did a bit of research and updated my Bios and ec to 1.03.15 and 1.03.09 respectively for which i understand is the last available official release. I changed to uefi mode with secure boot disabled etc... in short i did everything that my (limited) knowledge about these things allowed me to do (and the sweat of excitement and fear when i was flashing the bios for the first time in my life). But, alas, it all yielded no success,  and now i am lost. I have really no idea what to do, and whom to ask for help except for you guys here. The only thing that i understand worked for some of you is when you mentioned a wizard named @Prema so therefore i will try to do the same....

      I'm sure this is a question which has been asked many, many times...……………..I stupidly decided to update my BIOS from it's factory default with a low battery. Guess what...…..I had a powercut
      Now I'm getting three flashing blue lights followed by three red - also seven beeps. I've tried disconnecting the CMOS and the internal battery with no luck. I've tried formatting a USB with rufus, copying Dells .exe file onto the stick (File Name: Alienware_15_R3_17_R4_1.5.0.EXE) from Dells website with no luck...…….PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
