widezu do you know if flashing a 4gb or another subvendor bios will destroy our 2gb OEM aliewnare 680M's? (ie perma brick)

I might try it tomorrow. I have a spare GTX 580m/675m that I have as backup and I can always ring up Dell to get it replaced after it breaks.

So I got some courage and flashed the same vbios that Meaker used to achieve his score, and both of svl7's overvolted ones. No go, booted fine and was able to recover. Windows gets stuck as soon as I log in so Dell cards + MSI/Clevo vbios = fail.

That is disappointing and depressing. You're the man for testing that for us widezu69!

Can't svl7 edit the vbios to incorporate a throttle fix? Isn't that what had to be done for the Clevo one?

Trust Dell to gimp Nvidia cards again, idiots

I have tried on dell cards up to 915mhz core and the nice thing is, is that in games there is no throttle on intense usage. But in 3dm11 there is CRAZY fluctuations. It might be and hopefully is some form of artificial 3dmark protection. Here is a graph to illustrate my point.

I think it has more to do with GPU utilization than anything else. Certain 3DMark tests probably push the GPU hard enough to where it throttles. Try a heavy DX 11 title and see if you get any throttling with the card overclocked. If not then who really cares about a synthetic test.

check out the gpu usage on that graph I had linked - it is about sustained 97% on both over 6 minutes. That exact scenario would have pushed our poor gimped 580s to throttletown for about 5.5min straight lol with their OEM throttle vbios.

I've noticed my 680m throttling in the Metro 2033 benchmark and under certain intense situations playing Crysis 2.

Thanks for testing @widezu69. There still might be a chance if the computer can boot though.

Any results on the two versions of the MSI test bioses? I will be testing these out later this week when I receive my machine.

svl7 - thanks for the vBIOS mods. I've been pulling the hairs out of my bald head though trying to figure out random crashes. Turns out it was the 304.79 beta drivers the whole time. ;)

Please elaborate...I'm keen to learn as to what was wrong.

I've also got random crashes @ BF3 with svl7 1.037v vbios (@1037/2500) - also using 304.79 temps are OK (80c) - if you could elaborate, i'd be quite keen on knowing if the drivers are really the culprit or just my clocks are unstable with this vbios.

I also tried to lower clocks and same crashes are happening (1000/2400).

      I have recently upgraded my laptop(an M6800 firepro 6100) and replaced it with an GTX 980m. Nvidia says that the latest driver(461) supports my card but i can only install up to 388.13 Ive tried to mod it but i can't figure it out. I can run the latest linux driver tho

      I have spent a little time in the past few days looking around this site. I would love for someone to point me in the right direction to a forum that has information that could help me out with my problem.
       
      I have a:
       
      Alienware M17XR3 
      Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
      Intel I7-2820QM 2.3
      Bios InsydeH20 Version 1.0 A12
      NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460M
      (4x) 4 GB Ram
      samsung 2.5" 256 SSD (SATA3.0Gbps)
       
      It has been an amazing machine for the last 10+ years. Minor issues, nothing that an Alien Respawn could not fix, till now! On battery power it works just perfect.  Then I plug it in and it's all OK until I try to do anything, and then the screen goes white. The screen sometimes goes yellow, sometimes blue, but mostly white screen. It will do nothing until I do a hard reset (holding the power button till it turns off and turn it back on) with the power unplugged.  If the power is not unplugged then it will go through boot up to windows swirling dots then go white again. If I plug it in and do nothing I can charge it, unplug and continue what i was doing. I have tried a lot of solutions bouncing around the internet, and thought I was having a DC Jack connection issue (replaced the ac/dc power adapter, then the motherboard). I get a better connection now but with the same white screen result. I stumbled into this forum and I'm hoping to find solutions to my issues.  Then upgrade like so many others have.
       
      Any ideas, comments or suggestions welcome.
       
      Thank you in advance!
