Recommended Posts

Ok

Well nevermind really had to turn off antivirus and such like that..how weird that would cause a problem..

Well going to see what i can do

After figuring it out...it is really easy

The AV is a problem but going to prob just go with a comodo set up anyways..

Thank you so much

im sorry for being a nuansce just did not see a post that said it might be your av if you get errors running the backup.bat..

really cool features..

(gotta find memory configurations)

but the gpu running at 1Ghz AMAZING

going to get bf3 installed and get some benchmarks runinng when i get home tonight along with changing out to the dual band card finally

hey guys!

i just want to say, that the ''Lenovo Y580 / Y480 BIOS v2.07 (5DCN40WW) -> unlocked, whitelist removed, Nvidia 660m @ 1GHz default 3d clocks'' works great for me!!

my specs:

Y580

i7 3630QM

16 gb kingston hyperx (1600mhz cl9)

256gb ssd (with windows 7 professional 64-bit installed on it)

and the 1tb hdd

but i have one question, svl7, can u make this BIOS with 1,2 ghz default 3D clock and 1,408/2,816 ghz memory clock (~ 90,1 GB/s bandwidth :D ) for the gtx 660m?

this gpu handels this clocks without problems, i tried it out.. max temperatures on gaming with this clock 75°C. but mostly on 68°C..

btw, thanks for such an amazing work!!

the bios makes the Y580 even more better!!

You can use nvidia inspector to over clock as much as you want with the modded vbios, I have mine at 1250/3000 (1500) and it works perfect

l4z3r, i konw!

but a overclock with bios is much better than with a program, in my opinion..

whats about your temperatures? (e.g. in games like far cry 3? or something other)

Hey svl7 I needed to reinstall windows 8 after the bios unlock because I switched the hard drive to an SSD, and now the built in product key for v8.01 is incomplete (Not activating and only showing a partial key). Is there any way of fixing this? EDIT: I talked to Microsoft about this and they confirmed the product key was incomplete.

Shouldn't happen if you followed the procedure. The key is in your original bios backup, I'd say repeat the whole procedure with your old bios backup, if it doesn't work send me your original backup as well as the mod file you flashed.

It really depends on the program IMO, messing with the bios isn't worth it if you can push it to max with software.

Nvidia Inspector uses very little resources, and you can make a shortcut to apply the overclock when you need it only.

I re-applied the thermal paste on my cpu/gpu and my temps are a lot better (it used to hit 105*c overclocked and throttle the cpu/gpu)

I now max out around 80-81*c, ~65*c with my custom laptop cooler. (mini fridge tray with 3x120m fans on the back)

1300gpu crashes my gpu, so I use 1250gpu/3000mem as my everyday overclock.

Has anyone successfully flashed the modded BIOS on Win8 with v8.01?

yes, I have, make sure your bios is 8.01 and follow the instructions svl7 made in the first post.

Works like a charm

Why is the GPU boost same as the clock?

Because imo it's easier for overclocking, you know how high your GPU will clock, constant performance... I decided to disable boost since I don't really see the purpose of it when overclocking.

Ok, I tried everything by now... with no luck :( recovery reads usb drive and the pen is blinking as it would read the file but nothing more... :( still black screen. Last what left is Lenovo service...

Sorry to hear that..

You will still need a vbios mod to get around the +135MHz restriction, else you can't push P0, and pushing another P-State really is not a proper solution.

I see ... :D Also GPU temperature is about 4-5°C lower. Before I had max temp 75°C and now max is 71°C (tested with Crysis 3). :-)

I have the Y480 that came with Windows 7(upgraded to Windows 8) and the gtx 640m LE. The 2.07 unlocked bios includes the 1ghz 660m mod, will this conflict in anyway with the gt 640m LE?

No conflict at all. Of course your GPU will run at stock clocks, I didn't modify the 640m LE vbios so far. If you're interested in a modified 640m LE vbios, post a GPU-Z screenshot of your system.

I'd love an overclocked variant of the 640M LE.

Here's a shot of the GPU-Z.

Hey guys,

I am receiving my Y580 today and plan on flashing the 8.0.1 unlocked BIOS, but I will be replacing the HDD with an 840 Pro SSD first. Will this cause any issues with flashing?

      Required items:
      1.) Lenovo u310 (I have a Core i3 - Ivy Bridge, 8GB RAM)
      2.) 65CN99WW unwhitelisted.
      3.) eGPU (I used a EVGA GTX 750 Ti from another computer I had).
      4.) EXP GDC mPCIe Edition adapter (got from eBay - banggood seller).
      5.) ATX power supply (I used a 600W PSU from another computer I had).
      6.) USB wireless.
      7.) External monitor, keyboard, and mouse.
       
      Steps:
      1.) Obtain and install a unwhitelisted BIOS. If you are unable to obtain a unwhitelist BIOS, I think it might be possible to bypass it with Tech Inferno Fan's Setup 1.x (may need confirmation as I haven't used it myself yet.)
      2.) Shutdown computer and remove all USB devices, ethernet cables, power cables, card reader cards.
      3.) Remove mPCIe wireless card and detach antennas.
       
       
      4.) Attach EXP GDC external mPCIe cable to the former wireless slot and screw down.
       
       
      5.) Attach HDMI end of the mPCIe cable adapter to the EXP GDC device.
       
       
      6.) Attach graphics card to the EXP GDC device (I moved my laptop off the desk and onto the side shelf to make room on the desk for the monitor/keyboard/mouse).
       
       
      7.) Using the power cable adapters that came with the EXP GDC device, I hooked in my ATX power supply's 20 pin and CPU 4 pin cables. Then hooked the other end (8 pin) into the EXP GDC device. My EVGA 750 Ti also required that I use an additional PCIe power cable (6 pin) in the top of the card.
       
       
       
       
       
      8.) Then I attached my misc devices (HDMI monitor, USB keyboard/mouse/wireless adapter), and hooked in my PSU and powered it on (below is image of final product, also moved HDMI cable out of the way).
       

       
      9.) Power on your computer and let it install the standard VGA drivers and then install your drivers (I didn't have to go in the BIOS for any graphics settings, which it doesn't have anyways, nor did I have to disable iGPU in Device Manager before the card was added).
       
      Extra Info:
      I found that most games will play on med settings with about 45 FPS with this particular card.
      BDO: Upscale on - Anti Aliasing on - SSAO off - med settings.
      Skyrim: Med-High settings.
      Fallout 4: Med settings.

      ok, so, i have a serious problem atm.
      im trying to mod my bios so that i can go past the normal overclocking limit. however, everytime i try to do it, it always says "file size does not match existing bios size!", and it's really annoying, since i had to find everything myself, as no one else online tried this on my specific model, besides me. (which surprises me, really)
      this is the guide im following:
      So this is my detailed description how I managed to mod and overclock my GTX 960M in my Lenovo Y50-70. Please note: it is very dangerous to play with the BIOS, so you need to be very careful! I take NO RESPONSIBILITY for any damage or misuse of the information below! Use it AT YOUR OWN RISK!
       
      -------
       

      Necessary tools:
      A. Fptw64 from Intel (9.5 or above)
      http://forum.hwbot.org/showthread.php?t=75024
      B. PhoenixTool (2.50 or above)
      C. Maxwell II BIOS Tweaker (1.36)
      https://www.techpowerup.com/downloads/2562/maxwell-ii-bios-tweaker-v1-36/
       
      -------------------------
       
      How to flash Modded BIOS:
      0. Flash the latest (3.03 now) official BIOS
      1. From Windows, start 'cmd' as Administrator and read your your BIOS via Fptw64:
         Fptw64 -d BIOS.ROM -bios
      2. Reboot, enter your BIOS and check "Enable downgrading BIOS" feature (we need to downgrade first in order to flash the modded BIOS)
      3. From Windows, downgrade to 1.13 (this is necessary because the newer BIOSes have protection against mod-ding)
      4. After reboot & reflash, start Windows, then enter standby, wait a bit, then wake up the machine
      5. Create your modded BIOS, see separate list below
      6. Start 'cmd' as Administrator and write your _modded_ BIOS via Fptw64:
         Fptw64 -f BIOS_MODDED.ROM -bios
       
      -------------------------
       
      How to create modded BIOS (point 5 above):
      5.1 Start PhoenixTool.exe from Phoenix Tool 2.50 and open your previously saved original BIOS.ROM from point #1 above
       .2 The tool analyses it and shows some messages, click OK
       .3 Now you can find your vBIOS in the "DUMP" subfolder in the folder containing your BIOS.ROM, with the file name:
          BE13645B-2C2C-44D2-A64F-0EA052C34597_1796.ROM
       .4 Create your modded vBIOS, see separate list below -> let's call it 960M_OC.MOD
       .5 Click on "Structure"
       .6 Open "EFI BIOS" tag
       .7 Open second "File Volume {7A9354D9-...}" tag
       .8 DXE Core -> Compressed Section -> Raw section -> File Volume {7A9354D9-...}
       .9 In the very long list, find the following tag (usually displayed at around 80% of the list):
          Freeform {BE13645B-2C2C-44D2-A64F-0EA052C34597}
          This is the item containing the latest vBIOS
       .10 Open the tag, then "GUID defined section", then click on Raw section. "Internal number" (in the top right corner) should be 1796 for BIOS 3.03.
       .11 Click on "Replace" and select your modded vBIOS (called 960M_OC.MOD above)
       .12 Click exit "Exit" and say Yes to "Save changes?"
       .13 Close the Phoenix Tool; now you should have your BIOS.ROM updated (the original will be saved as BIOS.ROM.OLD for safety)
       
      -------------------------
       
      How to create modded vBIOS (point 5.4 above):
      Use Maxwell II BIOS Tweaker to change BE13645B-2C2C-44D2-A64F-0EA052C34597_1796.ROM;
      5.4.1 Open the ROM
         .2 Change "Boost Clock" on "Common" tab to the new boost-ed maximum value
         .3 On "Boost table" tab, use the slider in the right bottom corner to increase your max boost-ed value to the same number
         .4 On "Boost states" tab, at P00 profile, change the MAX values in the GPC, L2C and XBAR fields to the same max boost-ed value
         .5 Save your modified BIOS and rename it to 960M_OC.MOD
       
      (My boost-ed max value was 1359 MHz. I could then use MSI Afterburner's software tuning -> my 960M could reach 1454 MHz without voltage increase.)
      i know that it's for a different laptop, but its basically the same
      ill provide more info when im home

      Hello,
       
      I want to share the modded Bios I created for the Acer Aspire E5-572G notebook.
      The official bios 1.09 was used as a base.
      I'm offering three flavours: Microcode 01, Microcode 07 and Microcode 21.
      Microcode 21 is the latest available microcode, this is the Bios you want to use unless you want the special properties of the other microcodes.
      Microcode 07 is the latest microcode that allows using the full turbo clock speed on all cores (using single core turbo with all cores).
      Microcode 01 is the one you should take if you want to try this. I wasn't able to get it to work on mine (i5 4210m, HM86), but your mileage may vary.
      In case you want to always use an older microcode, I'm offering a script for windows that'll keep the OS from using a newer microcode (compatible with Windows Vista to Windows 10). Frequency and other things can be set up with ThrottleStop (use the latest version).
      I've also included an overclocking enabled ME firmware that should (hopefully) allow overclocking on the HM87 equipped notebooks.
      There are two flavours of this notebook available: Ones that use the HM87 chipset and others that use the HM86 chipset. Overclocking is only possible with HM87 as HM86 isn't capable of overclocking (tested it myself).
      Additionally I offer a collection of Bios, EC, ME and FD files of this device, in case anyone wants to experiment with these for a bit (EC Modding, etc.).
      I will update this bios in case there are newer parts available.
       
      Any feedback is welcome!
       

      Features:
      -Advanced Bios Options unlocked (Advanced, Power tabs and additional options in the existing tabs)
      -Nvidia 840M/940M VBioses replaced with adapted 940MX VBios with unlocked TDP Limit, unlocked Boost Table and some OC (1306,5MHz GPU/1070MHz Memory - with general usability in mind) + all voltage sliders unlocked
      -Intel Management Engine: Updated to 9.1.37.1002 + All Locks Unlocked + Overclocking Enabled For HM87 Notebooks + PAVP (Protected Audio/Video Path) Enabled
      -Flash Descriptor unlocked
      -Microcode updated to version 21 (respectively downgraded to 07 and 01)
      -Intel GOP Driver updated to 5.5.1033
      -Intel VGA Bios updated to 1042
      -Intel RST OROMs updated to 15.1.0.2545
      -Realtek Lan OROMs updated to 2.037/2.64
      -Applied a few useful BIOS patches by CodeRush (Unlock CPU Power Management Register (useful for Hackintosh Users)/Disable BIOS Lock/Disable SMI Lock)
       

      Flash procedure:
      1. Copy the BIOS file to an empty and with FAT16/32 formatted usb stick.
      2. Unplug the AC adapter.
      3. Remove the battery of the notebook - you can unlock the battery on the backside.
      4. Plug in the USB flash disk.
      5. Press and hold <Fn> and <Esc>, and then plug in the AC adapter while still holding <Fn> and <Esc>.
      6. Press the Power button. You can now stop holding <Fn> and <Esc>.
      7. The BIOS flash should now begin, the fans will spin up at max speed and the power led should blink. It should take between one to two minutes.
      8. After everything is done, you can reinsert the battery and go to the BIOS (F2). There you may want to change some settings (the BIOS flash erases all previously chosen settings).
