Asus G75VW - modified BIOS / VBIOS

Here's a modified BIOS for the Asus G75VW. It enables some more options and settings in the BIOS setup.

It also contains a tweaked VBIOS for the 660m.

Detailed version information:

 

 

  • mod02 'GHZ edition' - 660m 3d clocks at 1000MHz core - 670m @ 715/1650 (only in 'overclock edition')
  • additional BIOS menus

 

Pics of the most interesting BIOS settings (thanks @bobby7):

Instructions:

 

 

  • Download the BIOS you want to flash, as well as the flash tool (Win64). Put the modified BIOS (and included files) in the same folder as the flash tool
    .
  • Make sure that your current BIOS version is the same as the one you want to flash. Then create a backup of your BIOS by executing the backup.bat file.
    .
  • Download the 'G75VW-BiosFixer.zip, put it in the same folder as the flash too and run it. Follow the instructions on the screen, it will ask you for the BIOS backup you just created, as well as the modified BIOS file which you already downloaded.
    .
  • If the tool doesn't come up with an error message, go ahead and flash the created file by executing the included flash.bat file.
    .
  • Wait until the flashing is done, in case everything's okay you can reboot.

 

NOTE: It's a good idea to go to load the default BIOS settings after flashing. Also I really recommend flashing the official version before applying the modified BIOS, as mentioned in the instructions.

Also, there are some random fps drops in 20 sec intervals when playing a game. Great vbios!!

I need more details regarding the drops, else I can't investigate. Which game, what clocks did you run and how far does it drop. Please attach a log file.

For example. Or Nvidia Inspector, or MSI Afterburner or HWiNFO... whatever.

Okay, well now it seems to be working. It is rather weird the fps drop, could be just something else.

THx again.

Hello svl7,

Hope you had a good day. I have been experiencing the random clock drops while playing nba 2k13 and ac3.

Here are the clocks:

Log is attached, you can see towards the bottom the are these random drops. THx again for everything.

I want to thank svl7 for this modded vBIOS. I'm successfully gaming at ~1160Mhz core / 1450Mhz mem. Great stuff! It's put new life into this laptop.

It's been years since I've done any real benchmarking, but here's a 3DMark 11 Performance run:

I only see some drops to 1113MHz or similar, and that's still higher than the default clock of 1000MHz. 1200 is boost, you don't necessarily get full boost all the time. All the other clock drops I see are while the GPU load is lower, so that's usual as well, the GPU is supposed to clock down if there's only a small load.

Okay, I will just test it. Thx again. It is just the frame drops to 5 fps at those times.

He Jimmy,

Are those clock speeds including the boost?

Thx.

Does the vBIOS still limit +135 max overclock (from stock?) I'm sitting at +135 core using inspector with no problems. Might be time to go for a faster speed...

Svl7 didn't mention the +135 max overclock limit so i think it's still blocked at +135Mhz.

But instead of 835Mhz you start at 1000Mhz :)

Cool, that's what I assumed. Gonna have to try it out soon when I get the chance.

I'm seeing clocks hit 1164Mhz with my 3DMark runs...

So i flashed this amazing Vbios ! Boost in 1115Mhz ! The +135Mhz limit is no longer here :)

Everything's works fine.But the backlight of my keyboard has gone :/

Maybe I should disable the boost, then it's possible to sustain the clock which is set instead of having it switching all the time...

Regarding the lights, try a power drain. Might be a setting error. Also after flashing a BIOS I recommend going to the setup and loading the defaults.

I've done a power drain (battery and AC unplugged then hold on 30sec the power button) and i've load the defaults setting in the bios.

Still no backlight :/

Might be a problem with the EC/BIOS of v221, I didn't change any of this.

I can't do a lot about the 670m... it's a fermi card. A slight voltage increase is possible if the vbios allows it, and of course higher default clocks, but it won't overclock as high as a Kepler.

Do you have a GPU-Z screenshot of the 670m? (Preferably of a system using bios v221)

Here you go sir... Bios .211 Stock... GDDR5 is incorrectly reported of course...

      As it got pretty difficult for me to keep track of all the mod requests I decided to make a separate thread for bios / vbios modification requests. I hope it will make it easier for me to fulfill as many requests as possible.
      If you want to request a mod make sure you read through the following guidelines / rules, posts that do not comply with them will be deleted without further notice.
      Rules:
      You need to have a minimum of five approved posts (or 'T|I elite' status) in order to request a mod. Make sure I didn't already modify the corresponding bios / vbios. When posting a request you agree to flash and test the mod once it's done and post some feedback. (If you don't plan on using the mod then don't bother posting.) I only modify stock firmware. I don't work on anything that has already been tampered with.
      . For BIOS mods I need a link to an original BIOS update directly from the vendor (no mirror link) and most likely a dump of your BIOS (see instructions below).
      I only work on the latest BIOS versions unless there's a very specific reason for using an older one (in this case you need to specify so).
      In addition to this I need a dump of your BIOS as well as some additional information, read the "BIOS backup" section below, provide all the specified files.
      . For VBIOS mods I need a copy of your original vbios. (Only as attachment in a post here or per link to cloud storage such as dropbox, gdrive etc. per PM, filehosters are not accepted). No custom GPU clock requests unless it is for some reason not possible to overclock the corresponding system / GPU per software. No Windows activation mods. Check MDL for this kind of request. I can't guarantee that I will be able to fulfill a request.
      While I will try to keep it fair and consider the order of the requests at least up to a certain degree I will generally work on what I want and feel up to. Popular requests might be treated with higher priority.
      BIOS backup:
      For Intel 7 series chipsets run the attached flashChk tool from DOS and post the created flashchk.bin file (as attachment).
      Also grab this tool, run the backup.bat and send me created file. You will need to run it as administrator. If it reports and issue with the PCIe driver you have a crappy AV software and need to disable it temporarily.
      If you don't use Windows let me know and I will provide a different tool.
      For systems using the 8 series chipsets run the attached flashChk tool from DOS and post the created flashchk.bin file (as attachment) and wait for further instructions.
      - Thread under construction, more information will be added -
      flashChk.zip

      Fpt_DOS_(8_series).zip

      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.
