675mx clock stuck at stock with msi afterburner enabled

Recommended Posts

I am using msi afterburner to overclock the 675mx on my ibuypower cz-17 (i am pretty sure it uses the same hardware as msi)

When i do so GPU-z Gives me weird results.

The results that i am getting seem like the core clock is stuck at 653mghz when it should be 800mghz. The is room in the gpu-z graph to go up when overclocking is enabled.

i tried all the power save options to max performance. I also tried to lock voltage. No good.

I cant flash a vbios because i cant find one (other then the one on this site that i cannot download :()

if anyone has a suggestion or a link to a download for the 4gb 675mx bios let me know.

I dont see a turbo option on my ibuypower laptop. But GPU-Z says it has a turbo clock. Is there a way to turn in on in a driver or something?

With the cz 17 I think run SCM as admin. With it running in the background then press Fn+F1. It should force the default clocks to turbo.

I think that all bare-bone models of the MSI bios are core locked. They did not want to allow for overclock unlock or for raid setup for the special device you need. You would have had to bought the product from MSI for those options or at least when i bought my Ibuypower cz-17 and all I looked into. To do any overclocking you and I will have to upgrade the bios to an unlocked version. I have went back and forth about trying it. but i think I'm going to. The turbo button only turbos the fan :( for us

Ah yes, the MSI lock!

There is a solution which I came across after several hours of tests and reboots.

No unlocked bios needed.

Step 1

Download Nvidia Inspector and extract/install. NVIDIA Inspector Download version 1.9.7.2

Step 2

Open NI and click "Show overclocking", accept any warning.

Step 3

Click top right "Unlock Max/min"

Now set the shade or memory clock +20 or so.

Hit apply on bottom right.

The settings should now be persistent until reboot.

You also should be able to use Afterburner to set the clocks.

I can create a visual screenshot guide if needed.

Ask if you need help!

In my nvidia inspector I have 3 performance levels, when I choose the last one (LVL 2 P0), the one where you can oc to +135, unlock min/max become greyed out, while they are not for the other 2 levels.

      I have been attempting to change my boost clocks values for the longest time, though I've been unsuccessful. I managed to flash my modded BIOS, though no changes seem to have had happened, along with no errors either. Here's all the stuff I used and was able to get. If someone is able to help me with this, it would be greatly appreciated.

      Hello guys,
      I've a really weird problem. My laptop has started beeping when use nvidia gpu yesterday. I dissambled my laptop and tried to plug out every single hardware and test them one by one. There's 22 beeps and equal interval beetween them.  It goes shutdown after that 22 beeps.
       
      My laptop is Clevo W650SJ and it uses Nvidia 840M gpu. That problem isn't causing because of windows or installed driver cos i tried to reinstall windows but it started to beeping when w10 installer check devices. Also I've bios password on startup , if i don't type password and hit the enter , it starts beeping after 10-15 sec. Also fan speed goes up to maximum and it doesn't slow down untill i shut it down or shutdown itself.
       
      If i use any program or run a game which uses nvidia gpu , it starts beeping but if i close the game on first beeps , beeping is stops. But fan speed still maxiumum until i shutdown to pc.
       
      I am looking a way to fix it. I didn't make any changes on my pc before than this problem.

      Hello, I'm on an alienware m17 r4 and am trying mod my vbios for a 970m 3GB msi. I've managed to get the max boost with an increase in voltage, however I believe my voltage settings maybe unstable. When attempting to load programs capable of high gpu usage capabilities, the gpu begins to become pretty unstable. would anyone be able to provide assistance? I have both my edited and original roms as well.

      Hi all,
       
      I'm debating whether or not to replace the thermal paste in my Lenovo y510p. I've started overclocking a bit, and I have an external fan, but I would like to not have to run the fan as fast because it is a little loud. I have been reading a bit about different thermal pastes, and I'm wondering if there is even a big difference between stock thermal paste, and something like the liquid metal from thermal grizzly. It sounds like it'd work better, but I don't want to fall for a good marketing scheme. If anyone has experience with this and has or hasn't seen big differences, your input would be greatly appreciated.
       
      Thanks in advance!
