Actually I come across another problem. Since few days I have noticed that when I'm compiling something under Linux, CPU temp gets over 90* C. I think it's too high for i7-4800mq, especially as sensors reports 100* C as critical value.

I wonder why CPU fan does not run full speed on lower temps (eg. 80-85* C)? Is there any special BIOS setting for this or do I have to reflash BIOS/etc?

Hi there,

As far as I understand, Prema actually implemented some constant low speed strategies on BIOS fan configurations. Did you already checked on yours?

Hi, I'm thinking of flashing the W230SS BIOS. Talking about hotkeys and averything, does anybody knows if thre are diferences between Windows 7 and 8 with this model? I planning to put Win7 (dualbooting Linux Mint also).

Thanks in advance!

THIS is the Hot Key for Win 7 on W230SS. It should work just fine.

While flashing the Mod you have been given two options for the FAN. Silent & Cool. Just choose Cool during the flash.

I am also using FN+1 Full FAN Mode during longer compiling/render/encoding sessions.

But i Have choosen 'cool' already. Isnt there available any other EC that runs fan at full speed at lower temp already?

Before going to the question, I'd like to thank Prema for all the work he's done so far and for being able to reply everyone for these years. I'm also the starter of a huge thread on a Brazilian Portuguese forum and I know how much time I spent researching and replying everyone.

But anyways, I have a Clevo P150EM laptop, which had an i5 3210M CPU when I bought it and when I first did the Prema Mod, about 5 months ago.

I always thought the lack of options on the BIOS was due to the i5 3210M CPU, but now I replaced it for an i7 3920XM and I'd really like to deactivate Hyperthreading so I can have better performance at PS2 and Nintendo Wii emulators (kinda sad to see that my Desktop's i5 3550 performs a lot better than the i7 3920XM), but unfortunately there is no such option. The BIOS looks just about the same as it did when I first modded it.

So, to enable options such as turning off hyper-threading and almost everything you mention on the first page, what do I need to do?

My current BIOS is the P150EM_17_11_PM_v2_K2, my GPU is an AMD HD 8970M.

Nope, that's how Clevo intended it. Only option is to manually use FN+1 Full FAN Mode.

The current Mod doesn't have that option. All P-EM changes are "under the hood".

PM me on the blog if you want HT permanently disabled.

Thank you very much Prema! It works and now my i7 3920XM is having similar performance to my i5 3550 when it comes to emulators!

Thank you, thank you! I'll try to donate some value soon to help you continue your work!

Is it possible to create my own ec file? My p170sma turns it fan at max when it reaches 90c at gpu. I would like to start it when it reaches 75-80c.

You can overclock by 4-7% with XTU if you flash the modified BIOS.

Prema doesn't like playing with EC BIOS. My understanding is it's tricky and people have their own preferences so he'd make a time intensive mod for probably only one person to use.

Hay there,

Just an update on my hot key problem. I installed and uninstalled the last Hot key app for win7 (7.0026) and now with no Hot key app installed and after a few reboots the LED keyboard lights are on even in windows. Just blue but that's OK.

The 7.0026 version does show up but the LED keyboard settings page does absolutely nothing. I know because of the Prema modded bios. What is strange is if I install the 8.x version for win8 I can see it and all the options buttons when I hover my mouse over it in the task bar window preview but clicking on the app to bring it to foreground and in focus does nothing. Strange how the preview shows all the buttons and the app window but the app window will not show. Maybe it has to do with the direct link libraries used for the different versions of the app?

Small bug report prema p170sma v1 bios. When changing max current@cpu value at performance/overclocking tab, the value dissapears at reboot when entering setup. When booting directly in windows the setting will be applied when checking with xtu. But when entering bios again setting goes to default.

Some things require a full shutdown from Windows after they have been set in BIOS in order to stick.

The other reason could be XTU overwriting the setting. It writes stuff into the same registers. In which case you need to uninstall it completely.

Hey Prema,

Do you have a BIOS that can be used to allow the P150SM to use DDR3-2133 RAM?

Jason

My Mod allows 2133Mhz, 2400Mhz or even 2667Mhz, On first boot they will run @ 1866Mhz, then you can select the desired speed in BIOS and it'll run on that from then onward OS independent on that speed (if the RAM can take it).

If my Sager's BIOS is in UEFI mode, is it as simple as "get out of UEFI mode, flash PREMABIOS, go back into UEFI mode" ?

When doing the boot select option you have the choice of booting a device as UEFI or non-UEFI, so no need to change the BIOS to non-UEFI.

So I can do the BIOS flash even in UEFI mode, to the PREMA bios?

NO

PREMA says to disable UEFI and flash. follow the instructions on his site

Got it. That makes everything clear.

AFTER the flash, I go back into UEFI, right?

      Hello everyone, it is 2020 and i've been looking literally EVERYWHERE for a modded vBios for an Asus G751jy (980m 4gb) to unlock voltage control above 25mV, can someone help me?
      I've seen people have been linking the mod so here's mine, latest 213

      Hi,
      In this thread you can post your requests for AMD-V unlock on ACER E5-553G and same laptops with AMD CPU's, for example Acer Aspire E15, Acer Aspire E5-523G, Acer Aspire E1-522, Acer Aspire E1-420, Acer Aspire E5-421, Acer Aspire V5-123, and etc.
       
      Now we can unlock  AMD-V function for virtualization support. In general, this method described in the article on this link: http://www.geektech.co.nz/how-to-unlock-...enovo-y700
      This way requires Windows as a system because  some tool works only in Windows.
       
      Download this tool: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4NHIBM...RtQXM/view
      Extract the archive H2OUVE.rar directly on the Desktop and copy the H2OUVE folder directly on the disk C:\
      Then run the Command prompt as Administrator and execute these commands:
      cd  \
       
      cd  H2OUVE
       
      H2OUVE.exe   -gv   vars.txt

      After each command press the Enter button.
      After that, you'll have the file "vars.txt" in H2OUVE folder.
      Post here this file "vars.txt" or upload it to any fileserver and  send me the link.

      For reference, here's the EFI-table with available settings for this notebook: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B4NHIB...WI4LW14bE0
      And here's the setting that needs to be changed:
      0x1C40B             Setting: SVM support, Variable: 0xEE {05 91 54 02 55 02 54 00 34 12 EE 00 00 10 00 01 00}
      0x1C41C                 Option: Disabled, Value: 0x0 (default) {09 07 27 00 10 00 00}
      0x1C423                 Option: Enabled, Value: 0x1 {09 07 28 00 00 00 01}
