This bios is able to overclock Nvidia Graphics?

Yes of course. The modified BIOS v2.02 also contains a vbios which will allow you to overclock your 650m past the 135MHz limit.

Is anybody able to use Wake On LAN from S5? Only when shutdown to S3 state the keyboard an mouse are working for waking up the Y500. When going to S4 or S5 sleep state keyboard mouse and networkcard are dead (seems without power). So no possibility to wake the laptopp. Waking is the only posible with On/Off switch. In the Bios i activated WOL. Any idea?

Need Help with integrated graphics. Can anyone confirm that I'm using the same bios from this thread. I flashed this modded bios several years ago in order to get a new Intel Wireless chip working on this laptop. Ever since I modded the bios the integrated graphics have no longer worked, and are recognized by windows (10). When I attempt to install intel graphics drivers I get the (you do not meet the requirements for installation.) Looking through this thread I noticed someone else having a similar problem on page (56), and I vaguely remember reading about the issues from the thread I originally learned about this bios years ago. If anyone can please lend me a hand in fixing this issues I would appreciate it. So far when I've attempted to set IGD to active in the bios, my Y500 wont boot into windows and just freezes on the Lenovo logo screen.

Having dug through pages of this thread, I'm still not clear if people have been able to use this with 3.08. Any insight?

Hi. New member here.

I have had a Y500 for almost 4 years now. I bought a predator about 8 months ago and now i dont have much use of this old power house. Then i started tinkering with afterburner seeing how much farther i can increase the performance. To my surprise i can push it to the limit of 135 mhz on core in SLI and be completely stable. So i started searching what clocks other people were able to achieve. and when i saw people claiming 1100 to 1200mhz i was shocked and intrigued and that is how i ended up on this forum.

As i have nothing to loose if i get it wrong im willing to give this modding a shot.

So how do i get all tge files for this mod? It says i dont have the rights right now. How do i get the rights?

 

Also i want to make sure i can overclock in sli mode to above 135mhz so i can get the incrsdible performance people claim this gpu is capable of.

 

I Have a Y500 with Gt 650m In SLI.

BIOS is v2.04. Any help is appreciated. 

 

Also i say in this post that all the reference is about v2.02. Even for SLI it says use v2.02 to be able to overclock. How do i use 2.04? Thanks.

Curious about the tools used to create this mod. What de-compiling/editing software did you use?

I kept having issues trying to run fpt.exe to flash initially, getting abort issues. Turns out I when creating the bootable win98 files, the files copied are system-hidden so you don't have to re-copy the files into the bootable USB.

      Hi,
       
      I read a lot of different threads about the maximum possible M17X R2 configuration. But after I was more and more irritated.
       
      What is at the end the best performant GPU solution (with unlocked bios and dirver mod) but WITHOUT manual fan control and such things. Because if I want to sell one day my M17X R2 I don't want to explain and force the buyer to control the GPU fan per hand.

      When my first CPU fan on Y500 is broke i replaced it on something compatible (non-original) and planned to replace it later on original. Since that time happened a lot things, but i still using that non-original fan. But i did some research and here is what i founded:
       
      I. ORIGINALS
       
      1. Forcecon (marked as FCN on fan)
      DFS5413005MH0T-FC1C (5V - 0.5A)
      Spotted in: Y400, Y500.

       
      2. Asia Vital Components (marked as AVC on fan)
      BNTA0612R5H-P007 (5V - 0.5A)
      Spotted in: Y410p, Y500, Y510p.

       
      3. Sunon (marked as SUNON MagLev on fan)
      MG60120V1-C230-S99 (5V - 2.25W (0.45A))
      Spotted in: Y410p, Y500.

      So, which to choose? Any recomendation? Maybe there also unexpected way (completely diffirent fan from another company for another laptop)?
