Recommended Posts

Hi ppl,

Here are my answers:

Clevo: P150EM

GPU : GTX 680M

vBios: svl7 vbios stock Voltage

Core / Memory Clock : 936 / 1200

3d Mark 11 : GPU score 7612

3d Mark Vantage : GPU score 26603

I hope it's helpful :)

Best Regards to all

Hi MeNtAl_DaRkNeSs, your stock bios it's already 80.04.33.00.10 version? so you use the same oc version?

I have tried 3 Dell vBIOS for the 680m (both of the non OV and one OV) and no matter what my clocks stay the same while in SLI mode. I can overclock all I want when SLI is disabled but I still am hitting that 135 limit. I have a brand new alienware m18x R2.

Hi, I don't remember which version was my stock vbios... Anyway I'm loving this vbios with stock voltage, I have great temps and great performance :D

Anybody have any success overclocking dual 680m in SLI on an M18x R2? Do I need an unlocked BIOS as well as a modded vBIOS because whatever vBIOS I try the thing just sticks at stock clocks in SLI. I can only overclock with SLI off and I can't turn it off, overclock, then turn back on.

clevo sells their laptops with bent heatsink plates so that it is impossible to get good die contact without lapping heatsinks. You can somewhat compensate by using a large amount of thermal paste, but flattening out the heatsink is the only true fix. I sanded mine flat on the edge of a countertop with 800 grit sandpaper. Arctic silver is an outdated thermal paste. I suggest IC Diamond instead.

Yeah, I see what you mean, my idle temp on CPU is 77-80 Celsius.

If I turn the fans to max with FN+9 it can't get lower than 72

My 675MX idles at 40 Celsius so there is probably something wrong

I have the same laptop with 680m SLI.

With stock BIOS I had a +135MHz limit while overclocking.

Now I use the stock voltage modded version, and the limit is gone.

What program are you using to overclock?

There is definitely something wrong. Your idle temps should be around 50C.

Check your heatsink, maybe the contact with your cpu is not optimal.

did you flash both your cards using i<card number> command?

0-for card 1

1-for card 2

if you directly flashed without card number, i think it only flashes the master card

explains why overclock limit +135mhz is not there when sli is off

i would advise you to save BOTH their vbios seperately for flashing back to stock

I agree with Rajat. That's what most likely happened. Make sure you follow the steps for flashing the vBIOS correctly and repeat the process for the second card typing 1 this time.

how do i request a vbios for my dell inspiron 17r 7720 with GT650M and i7 3630qm?

*how or what program do i use to backup my vbios? gpu-z and nvflash won't work on me.

I use EVGA precision X to overclock and the slider only would go to 135 but the clock would never change. I tried MSI afterburner and same result.

I flashed each card separately.

first command i used was -i0 -6 oc.rom

and the second was -i1 -6 oc.rom

oc was what I had changed the file name too and I know it was successful because both cards vBIOS changed in GPUz yet no matter what the 135 limit was still there and the cards would not over clock or over volt at all. I am using the standard dell A10 BIOS at the moment. My cards are both flashed back to stock bios and I know I did that correct because again it changed in GPUz.

What could I be doing wrong? The new techinferno pop up did appear at launch of my computer too until I flashed the stock. I backed up the vbios of both of my cards but I only used one file to restore since they both had the exact same vBIOS version, file size, and everything. My computer runs fine but I would really like to overclock in SLI.

It's really weird. If you saw the slv7 logo at boot it means that you did flashed the cards. Today I tried flashing the cards again with the vBIOS I've already been using successfully and all went well. I flashed in the following way, give it a try:

1) summon cmd.exe in Administrator mode

2) nvflash -b backup.rom

3) nvflash -4 -5 -6 "Dell 680m - 80.04.33.00.32__'OCedition'_revised_00 - OV 1050v.rom" (the most stable vBIOS with my system. It allows me higher OC > +292mhz core clock +400mhz memory).

4) follow the prompt - it will ask you if you want to go ahead and flash, type YES

5) it will ask you again if you want to flash the second GPU, type YES

6) done, type EXIT

7) reboot and check all it's working

Hi slv7,

Can you tell me if there any diferences between Clevo 680m bios? my stock bios is 80.04.67.00.01, which version should i use? the same but only OC version, or other?

Tks in advance!

I flashed from DOS. I can't figure how to do it from windows. If you can link me a decent guide or PM me the process I will give it a try. Thanks.

I used this procedure:





































Backup (Dump) Primary GPU:

nvflash -b backup0.rom
[RIGHT]Backup (Dump) Secondary GPU:

[/RIGHT]

nvflash -b backup1.rom
[RIGHT]Flash Primary GPU:

[/RIGHT]

nvflash -i0 -5 -6 FILENAME.ROM
[RIGHT]Flash Secondary GPU:

[/RIGHT]

nvflash -i1 -5 -6 FILENAME.ROM





Both Windows and DOS version have the same commands. On windows you have to run cmd as administrator.

type 'dir' command to see what files are in the folder, and type THAT rom name which IT shows and when flashing in DOS, it has 8 letter file name restriction, try using less than 8 letter if more than 8 also did you try the verify command to check it?

It's just me being stubid, EVGA precision X had five processes of voltage tuner at the same time using 75% of the CPU.

Now it is at 45-49 degrees and much more quiet

When I flashed my cards I only used -i0 -6 .rom not -i0 -5 -6 .rom. Could that be the problem?

-i - Force a specific device index.

-5 - Allow firmware and adapter PCI device ID mismatch.

-6 - Allow firmware and adapter PCI subsystem ID mismatch

That should be the problem.

- - - Updated - - -

How are your temps with the 1050mV BIOS?

Do you notice a big difference at the same clock?

This vBIOS really works well for me, since I push the CPU to 4.3/4.4 when I play demanding games, and the cards benefits from its higher voltage (or the system would freeze for power starvation). I use a HWINFO fan profile to keep the system cool and the GPUs, even with a +292mhz core and +400mhz memory, never go higher than 70C ~ in game.

Hey , @svl7

Can You Upload VBIOS For Gtx660m In Lenovo y580 With Increased Voltage , my limit is 1250 core / 3000 memory please i want to reach 1300/3000 but i cant due to lack in voltage if

that help am already using your vbios from the other post with ghz edition , please respond to this asap i already went to all forums no one help i went to overclock.net , overclocking.com ....etc , no one help please am waiting and thanks

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Edit :- I Already Know That My Vbios Is Inside My Bios So I Cant Backup The Vbios Alone If Any1 Can Help :'(

Hi svl7, the oc edition of Dell 680m of the 3 versions you attached, which is the one i can flash again using stock fan speed and safe? i just need a small increment from 758 core clock from your vbios free download, the version of 1000v is good?

      Hello, I've got a Dell Precision M4700 with a 3940xm. I've read that in this particular CPU and laptop model, the bios is locked because the stock settings are considered an overclock. As-is, the core temps on the CPU do reach up to 90-100. They seem to spike up and down a bit when benchmarked with Intel's Extreme Tuning Utility, but they certainly do reach over 90C. Is there no way to unlock this bios (version a18, though a19 is released - I haven't updated yet, should I?) and even if there were, would my only option be a heatsink mod on top of that?
       
       
      edit: I've mistakenly posted this under Desktop & General Hardware, perhaps a mod could move or delete the thread? Apologies!

      Hello, I've got a Quadro M2200 (GPU: GM206GL-A Revision A1, and MxM 3.0a Maxwell card) with the following bios: 84.06.76.00.1C
       
      I've read that this card is very similar to the GTX 965m, but that it has been underclocked considerably. It seems to be a good candidate for unlocking since I hardly see the temperature exceed 70C as-is. I'm requesting help with this - I'm not sure if it's possible to simply flash the vbios from a Dell GTX 965m (MxM 3.0a) or if some type of edit of the card's current vbios would do the trick. I'm hoping someone could help me out with the specifics of doing such an edit if that's the case. 
       
      Thanks!

      Hello Everyone,
      I am an owner of MSI GT70-20C and my GTX770m gpu i now dead.
      I have a question and i hope someone will help.
       
      I have ordered GTX 970m 6GB DDR5 and i cannot find the exact vBios for that graphic card.
      My current bios version is: E1763IMS.51B
       
      Thanks in advance,

      I own an Asus Fx504-gm laptop with an 8th gen i7 and nvidia gtx 1060. I ve been having issues with random hard freezes and I later found out that absolutely anyone with this exact model has the same issue and not even Asus service can fix it as they just replace every component and the problem persists so my guess is that this is software related.
      I ve been noticing that I Always hit power limit(I monitorised it with afterburner) and so I have power limit throttling. The thing is, for this laptop the power limit is locked and I cannot modify it.
      My last resort is to try a modified bios that can unlock the power limit slider. My question is: Is this possible? Are there any modified bioses that can unlock the power limit or the only way is to unlock it via the motherboard? If so, where can I get a reliable modified bios for my laptop and how can I check compatibility? Thx.

      Hello all! I have been researching upgrade paths for my M17x R4 and I have decided on the GTX 1060. Now, I was given this laptop with a dead GPU, and I had an M17x R3 already. So I moved the GTX 560m into the R4 which has worked fine. Now as I understand it a few things are needed for this upgrade including the 120hz panel and the ability to disable the legacy ROM for a pure UEFI boot. I have the 120hz screen, but the 560m uses the GF116 architecture which does not have a vBIOS which supports GOP. So I am thinking the only solution is to buy a cheaper "in-between" card which supports both boot modes, which will allow me to disable the legacy option in setup. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what cheap card to buy as a transitional part? I have been considering a 765m but I am also wondering if there are any other good choices.
