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

Recommended Posts

Hey svl7

Got your 780m vbios installed and had the 680m ones as well, amazing work and kudos to you.

Just had one question about the 780m vbios... Have you ever encountered the core (memory clocks aside) on the 780m's to throttle back to its original state, but? (e.g. 850mhz for the modified one)

I've been troubleshooting like no tomorrow, and was wondering if you've ever witnessed or heard about such an issue existing.

I've used nvidiainspector and evga precision.

Any feedback would be great!

Mine does something similar when it's not being 100% loaded in a game, then it won't run at full 'overclocked' 3D clocks, but will default to a lower 3D clock of 600Mhz for instance. That was the only thing that rang any bells when I read your post, but not sure if that's describing what you're seeing.

Mines a little bit different. Whenever I run 3dmark11 for instance, the core will jump back and fourth whatever I set it at and it's default value (e.g. 970mhz back to 850mhz then back to somewhere around 970mhz or less) it never goes below the default clock.

Overvolting seems to diminish an increase in anything, if I overvolt at all, even by a little bit, my scores drop a few hundred points or so, even on overclocks that would need them.

Hi Guys,

Just wondering im very new to PC gaming, and i have just bought AW18 with dual gtx780m's installed.... currently the frame rates im seeing are amazing on ultra settings @ 1080p, mainly in the 60's...

if i was to load this modded bios what would i gain, i don't benchmark or know enough about overclocking. so i was wondering what gain would i see from the bios at stock clock settings... or can i increase them a little and gain from it in everyday gaming...

thanks alot in advance, im very new to oc gaming so be gentle...

Ian

Alright ty for the bios, i have tried it on the Alienware 18, i get better score ..BUT in game intensive such as Battlefield 4 games would crash after 20 minutes... underclocking card 100mhz lower would let me play much longer ... reverted back to stop bios... and played battlefield 4 for 5 hours strait ... no crash...

so for alienware 18 user.... since we can't control the fan we need to wait :(

Is it possible to flash a DELL vbios into a HP card?

I did not see there's a HP version K4000M vbios listed, but hope it can work.

Thanks.

Hey guys,

My graphic card is a GeForce GTX 780m. im wondering if this vbios mod can fix the problem im having with my card.

I bought it for my alienware M17x r4, the problem is whenever I open a 3D application, the GPU will randomly drop its clock rate down from 950mhz down to 333mhz for a short period then runs normally again, the usage shows 100% the whole time and I tried reinstalling drivers and exc but still to the same result. How I 1st noticed the problem was when I was playing battlefield 4 (ultra settings) I would usually be getting 60+ FPS until the spike occurs...

Any help with my problem in general would be greatly appreciated :)

Most likely yes, but I can't tell for sure. If you send me that HP K4000m vbios I can tell you.

Weird issues... worth a try. You'll see whether it helps after flashing.

Hey everyone, great forum! I have the MSI gt60 with the GTX 680m card and I want to be on the conservative side regarded overclocking. Under normal settings my card reaches temps after 10 min in Furmark (1920x1080 + 8x MSAA) of about 75 degrees MAX. With that in mind, I wanted to use the MSI 1V Overclock, just to be on the safe side, but considering the temps, does anyone have any suggestions as to what OC would be the best and not risk too much... Thank you for your time!

I really wouldn't recommend using Furmark to determine what your max temperatures are on your GPU. NVidia has artificially limited the current draw that can happen associated with Furmark, due to it placing unnaturally high loads on GPUs (they've been doing that since Fermi I believe). I would recommend Unigine Heaven Benchmark to be run on a loop to determine stability & maximum temperatures. It places a consistent 100% load to the GPU, and is a very good way of emulating the stresses of the most demanding games.

75 degC is really good, so I think your GPU could take a little more OC. Just keep an eye on the temperatures. I think you'd want to keep it below 85 degC.

Thanks for the quick reply Robbo! Will get the Unigine Heaven Benchmark as soon as I flash my card. I think with the card being 75 degrees is good as well, so for now I will try flashing with the msi 1v OC and see if it is stable and see what temps I get from the benchmark. I wouldn't want to go over 85 degrees though on the stock card I have played Alan Wake and it went up to 92!!!! That was before my repaste, cooler and modified backplate. It will be interesting to see how far I can push the card and still be stable while staying at 85 and below. Take care, will post my results :)

80.04.5A.00.05 k5000m.rom.zipGot my k5000m today.

The OC bios actually have OV build in sweet.

The card come with a newer bios incase you want to keep a copy.

Questions:

Do the vios control video fan? Because it go full speed which I never experience before, running +3xx/5xx and my temp is only 70C (15C ambient) running heaven bench.

What do priorize temperature do?

OC result. Mem can't go past 800ish. Core about +38x. 8.9k graphic 3dmark11, PSU or board protection give in for higher core.

I think 83C max , Though the fan get some clicking noise already orz.

Hello SVL7, I have 6 posts now - and yet cannot download the 780m VBIOS yet as it says I still do not have permission. Do I need to hit the donation link to be able to download it to fix my 780m Black screen/screen noise issues? If that's the case just let me know and I will gladly chip in $10.00 for your time and efforts!

Kind Regards,

Koinonos

OK, no prob, that sounds interesting given the modifications you've made and your previous high temperatures you were getting at stock previous to your mods. I'd be interested in hearing how you get on with the new VBIOS, temperatures & performance.

No, you just need to wait until the server changes your permissions after your fifth post got approved, which should have happened by now.

Nice, already got that version but thanks.

Fans are controlled by the EC firmware of your notebook. The temp setting allows you to adjust the temp throttle threshold up to a certain degree.

Hi svl7,

ich schreibe dir in deutsch, das ist einfacher für mich. Ich hoffe es ist ok. Kannst du mir bitte ein BIOS für meine 680m SLI von alienware mit eine r Taktrate von 850 MHz. Ich spiele oft mit vsnc und habe oft das Problem, das die erhöhte Taktraten nicht stabil bleiben. Schalte ich vsync aus habe ich keine Probleme. Ein BIOS mit 850 MHz wird mir sehr helfen. Vielen dank und gruss treffnix

Hi guys. I'm using a 660m inside an M15x. I believe its a dell card. I used the Dell 660m VBIOS GHz Edition and everything was great for months. I recently had to reinstall windows. After the resintall my clocks are showing 1200 core instead of that 1000!! I also get a weird buzzing when playing a game when they go up that high. What steps should I take? Should I try to reflash the bios with the GHz Vbios?

Thanks in advance.

(HP) K3000m - 80.04.33.00.2E - 'OC edition''

This vBios's GPU Clock still +135..:concern:

Yes, that's possible, but that's not a problem of the mod itself. HP is a bit special when it comes to bios / vbios. Generally it won't use the vbios on the GPU but instead one that is stored in the bios. Especially if you're on a UEFI installation.

With a legacy installation it might use the vbios of the GPU.

680m_GTX.zip

Hey svl7, could you take a look at this BIOS for me? It's from DELL 680m GTX, cause it won't flash the one with on the site, this one have a different ID. Could you let me know what's wrong or what I should do? Thanks!

Hey guys, just making sure I understand everything correctly, the MSI OC revised flash file without any volts on it, it uses the stock voltage of the card be lets you overclock more? and the 1v, 1025, 1,05 is the same with just the voltage increased? or is there other differences? Sorry for the newb like question :) since temps seem fine, to be safe is 1v good, or should I go for 1025, 105? thanks.

      Hello everyone! I am looking for an answer to a problem I cannot find a solution to ... I purchased an Amd wx 4150 MXM GPU module su e bay to upgrade my HP 8570W Mobile Workstation which is currently equipped with a Fire Pro M4000. Once the new GPU has been installed, the PC screen no longer turns on but works only with external monitors connected via the docking station. The same happens once the drivers are updated! If I put the old card back on, the integrated monitor starts working again ... How can I fix it?

      Bios Release Version – v2.0.0
       

       
      Updated or Modded Items:
      A11 UNLOCKED BIOS FOR m18Xr2 (UNLOCKED BY SVL7 AND FULL CREDIT GOES TO HIM FOR UNLOCKING!)
      SVL7 Also created the PRR2.EXE tool that allows you to flash the new bios by unlocking it.  (FULL CREDIT GOES TO HIM FOR THAT FILE PRR2.EXE)
       
      Here are ALL the things I've added, modded, and enhanced on this bios -
      I've added FULL LEGACY SUPPORT ON THIS BIOS with ONE or TWO CARDS (SLI).  You can FINALLY use Win 7 OS on your machine and run the 900 series GPU's! 
      This is a MAJOR breakthrough!
       
      LEGACY SUPPORT Confirmed.  Works with 900 series GPu's in single OR SLI formation Updated the Intel RST Legacy to v12.9.0.2006 (Supports TRIM in RAID0 - CONFIRMED) Updated Intel RST UEFI to v12.9.0.2006 (Supports TRIM in RAID0 - CONFIRMED) Updated the ONBOARD Video Card for the HD3xxx to v2171 - FROM v2132 Updated ONBOARD Video Card for the HD4xxx to v2171 - FROM v2132 Updated the LAN Firmware & PXE Boot from 2.0.5.9 to v2.0.6.6 ADDED NvMe Support for m18xr2 ADDED M.2 support for m18xr2 Updated CPU Microcode to v29 for the 2900 CPU's Updated CPU Microcode to v1c for the 3900 CPU's Updated GOP Driver for Intel Sandy Bridge CPU Updated GOP Driver for Intel Ivy Bridge CPU Updated MAIN GOP Policy module for the m18xR2 Eliminated some code that wasn't used in the m18xR2 Updated CSM Module (v2) Streamline some coding to make mod(s) run a little more efficiently (v2) Added FPARTS.TXT to rar file in v2. (I had forgot to add it in v1) v2.5 to be released shortly.  I've updated a few more modules that I didn't realize could be updated.  (It's only 3 modules, but it's still an update!)   It should be released in about a week.  Hope this helps ya'll!  
      Instructions to flash:
      Use a flash drive to create a boot disk into dos Unzip ALL files into the root of the flash drive (flash.bat, r2final.bin, fpt.exe, flash.bat, prr2.exe, fparts.txt,m18r2.hdr, m18r2.hdr.bin, readmefirst.txt) BOOT INTO DOS – Note, that when you set the bios to legacy in order to boot into dos, you MAY have to reinstall OS!  (Just be prepared to reinstall no matter what) Once you boot into dos, run the file flash.bat It will unlock your bios (THANKS TO SVL7’s BIOS UNLOCKING TOOL – ALL CREDIT TO HIM FOR THIS TOOL!) Let it flash… Reboot your pc, and enjoy the MASSIVE updates!  
      Be on the lookout as I do plan to release newer version with more updates in the future.  However, it wont be for at least a few weeks as I'm now working on legacy support for the m17xR4 and several other systems.  So please be patient!
       
      ENJOY!

      NVIDIA 'Maxwell' VBIOS mods
       
       
      Here you find modified VBIOS versions for the mobile parts of the Nvidia 'Maxwell' series.
      The VBIOS versions in this post are tweaked for performance and versatility. You'll get almost complete control over the performance parameters of your GPU.
      List of available VBIOS mods:
       
      Nvidia GTX 970m - 'OC edition' rev0 - >> 6 GB Version << - modified by @johnksss & svl7 -> see attachments Nvidia GTX 980m - 'OC edition' rev0 - >> 8 GB Version << - modified by @johnksss & svl7 -> see attachments  
      Screenshot demonstrating the capabilities of the 970m versions:

      >> Read the instructions carefully before flashing! <<
      If anything is unclear after reading or if you have additional remarks, please post in the thread.
       
      Flashing:
       
      - Go to the device manager -> 'Display Adapters' -> chooser your GPU, right click on it and choose disable
      - Flash the VBIOS with mnvflash, a modified version of nvflash (see attachments). Here are detailed instructions for nvflash in case you aren't familiar with it.
      - After the flashing is done: Enable the GPU once again in the device manager.
      - Reboot
       
      Do NOT use driver 347.09, it's broken and useless and won't allow you to overclock, even with the stock firmware.
      Don't distribute the files hosted here outside of Tech|Inferno. Don't modify the files you download here.
