NVIDIA Kepler VBIOS mods - Overclocking Editions, modified clocks, voltage tweaks

Recommended Posts

Hey, big thanks from the ASUS ROG FORUMS!

Do you think this will work with the ASUS G55vw ?

But thanks, this overcomes a tremendous milestone for our laptops.

Well, I don't know... Asus is a bit weird when it comes to mobile GPUs... for whatever reason they don't adhere to the MXM standard, probably because they want that the users have to buy new machines instead of being able to upgrade them.

Anyway, the Clevo 660m works a G75VW vbios... and pretty well, here's a run @1200MHz: http://hwbot.org/image/815912.jpg

Yesterday I managed 1330MHz, with some more voltage :D

The Dell VBIOS might work... but it's also possible that you get a black screen with it. I can take a look at the G55 vbios when I find some time.

Alright, if you could take a look at the G55 vbios that would be great. Also, what do you mean about the Clevo 660m working with a g75vw? Is it the g75vw running a different bios (clevo?) and getting higher clock speeds? Thanks!

I mean that I flashed the Clevo card with a G75 vbios and it works nice in a M15x, I take the best from each world, hahahaha.

Anyway, regarding the G55vw, can you check something for me? I'm not sure whether the vbios is part of the bios or whether there's a separate vbios rom on the board... Can you dump the vbios per GPU-Z or per nvflash (DOS)?

If so, please upload it here.

If I understand you correctly you unlocked a G75 vbios? beyond the Asus imposed 135 core clock and voltage limits? If so, I would love to get my hands on that modified G75 vbios, and try it on my G75. I'm not yet sure how, as of today nvflash doesn't work with my Asus EEPROM yet, but maybe I can insert it into the motherboard bios, and flash it that way. Within the factory OC limits my 660 produces easily achieves P3100+ 3Dmarks, very respectable imho, with minimal extra heat, but there's clearly room for more :)

Hi,

Oh yeah. All those epic 3DMark scores you see the 680M GTX's hitting are Clevo cards with MSI vBIOS.

Thank you for your answer. Do yo know if the flashing method is the same as before:nvflash -4 -5 -7 bios.rom from a DOS USB?

I thought it was 4 5 6 but @svl7 should be able to tell you for sure.

I have a M17x R4 GTX 680m vbios here if you could kindly take a look please :)

Sure, wanna see you breaking some records :)

Yeah, I did, but I can't overclock the card per software in my system, so I just cranked up the clocks in the vbios, hahaha, got it stable up to 1330MHz (at least stable in 3dMark11).

Did you try using the lastest DOS version of Nvflash? If possible, post a dump of your vbios.

I thought it was 4 5 6 but @svl7 should be able to tell you for sure.

Yeah, as Xonar says, use -4 -5 -6. You probably need to override the SSID, stupid nvflash.

Hi svl7, I have just installed a Clevo 680m 4Gb in an Alienware M17xR3, and it works really great (http://forum.techinferno.com/alienware-m18x/1860-incoming-clevo-680m-4gb-aw-m18x-r1-3.html#post23778).

I am puzzled that the vendor ID is 1028 (Dell), instead of 1558 (Clevo), Do you think it will be possible to flash it with the Dell Bios (I know Dell cards only have 2Gb, but I think the nvidia bios just check whatever memory you have)?, the idea of flashing it with dell bios it is to recover the 3Dvision in case Dell chooses to support it, or if in the future I buy a M17R4 motherboard.

Thank you very much in advance for your time. Julian

Where did you get the 680m? Eurocom?

Well, hahaha, that explains a lot... for some reason they seem to flash all card for AW users with the Dell vbios, even the 7970m... LOL. Seriously, as if this would solve all the possible issues (it doesn't). At least it allows you to use the Dell drivers, well... if you want you can still flash a Clevo vbios.

Some more Dell 680m mods, @widezu69 and all other user who flash them -> please provide some feedback, I need to know how well they work, can't test them myself. Let me know what you flashed and how well it worked. Thanks.

Hi svl7, when I bought the card through ebay, I did not tell them my system was a Dell (Alienware), the dell drivers did not work, and I have to use some drivers from laptopvideo2go and have to mod the inf with the card system ID card...., but probably you are right about the dell bios flash, because I do not think that the vbios is "adaptative" and changes when it recognizes a dell, clevo or msi...

Have you heard about the "Siltius" vbios mod, that has been used by "Meaker" to break 8.000 in 3dmark11?

Best Regards and thank you.

Can you post a dump of your vbios?

Yeah, Saltius did some nice work there.

      Hi, new in the forum, trying to find some help, someone points me in the right direction.
       
      Long story short: Clevo p170hm3 from 2011, gtx485m card dead, new card from ebay, it doesn't works correctly.
       
      I've read about Clevo brand signature, Prema posts about 3dvision license between hardware from ir emitter, gpu and motherboard, Prema modified bios to get gtx580 working too with 3dvision, svl7 (now retired) vbios, and more, but basically, I'm still confused enough to know what should I do and what are the right steps to get my p170hm3 back to life.
      Last card I could buy was a gtx675m, but I couldn't find vbios (original, not-moded from Clevo), the Clevo vbios list "jumps" from gtx670m to gtx680m with no mention to gtx675m , and I read some posts about convert a 675 to a 580 and viceversa, I think it was changing some physical resistances, and some number in vbios, but I'm not modder, no idea really about.
       
      So, What I should do?. Sell 675m and try to get a gtx580m, and use original clevo vbios on it?, it will work, or my computer won't be able to use it?. I bought my computer before gtx580m was released... I would need to update bios to get it working?
       
      Or unlock graphic card restrictions with the latest prema bios mod (if that is possible). There is some chance get 675m working?
       
      Are all mods and files I need in this forum? (ask this because I can't see/access the files, because I'm new in the community)
       
      What options I really have?.
       
       
      I hope someone can clarify me a little bit this situation.
       
      Thanks in advance.

      In this thread you can post your requests for Lenovo Y50-70, Lenovo Y70-70, Lenovo Z50-70, Lenovo Z70-70, Lenovo G50-70, Lenovo G70-70.
      If someone wants upgrade Wi-Fi card and remove whitelist, or unlock hidden additional menus and settings in bios setup menu, or unlocked vbios for overclock NVIDIA card, then you can post your request in this thread. Also, if you have a problem with fan pulsating/clicking on any modified bios then you can post your request in this thread.
       
      The flashing procedure include two steps:
      1.  Flash main system bios.
      2.  Flash EC firmware.

      Hello all
       
      I have a Clevo P370EM3 laptop with a pair of GTX 680Ms in SLI mode and have never been able to get Linux to work properly with full acceleration and without tearing. I have tried every xorg config I can find, and even all the modifications from the nvidia configurator to no avail. Has anyone been able to get these things to work 100% in Linux? I have typically used ubuntu based distros, including Mint, and every available driver version from the repositories, but can never get it to work quite right.
       
      Thanks for any help anyone can provide. It is killing me to run Windows on this machine because of these issues, and I am almost to the point of installing the inferior 7970 cards.
       
      Have a great day

      Help! I created a BOS BOOT DISK and use legacy to boot in DOS.   But it is saying that "An operating system wasn't found".   I have extracted all the files (the alienware m18x r2 a11 unlocked bios) into my external hard drive (format: NTFS)
