M14x R2 A13 Unlocked Bios + Modified Vbios Now Available!

Recommended Posts

Thank you so much @Eats7 for your work on this. Running it with no issue. Only thing bugging me know is the 67C thermal GPU limit, any way around this? If you absolutely must have the thermal limit there, would it be possible to raise it to ~85C? It's about what my CPU runs at so it would be a nice even temperature.

Apart from that, great work!

I use nvidia game ready driver v331.82. I overclocked my rig as follows: 1181mhz for core and 3000mhz for memory and 200mv for voltage. I get 90 degrees on gpu with no throttling, lol and do not have any problems with games at high settings.

After checking, gpu only throttles at 97 degrees.

The funny thing is my scores in 3dmark 11, ice storm and the other one(cant remember name) were high on windows 7 than now on 8.1 and back then i was running at 1070mhz and on 8.1 the memory is seen as being on 1500mhz when running 3dmark but kumbustor and other games run it at 3000mhz.

Game on man.

Well, vbios can still be flashed. And with the latest bios and xtu you can do pretty much it seems. I can still unlock the bios but you would have to solder. Anyway, that's kinda off-topic, check the AW17 owners lounge for such discussion, thanks.

thanks man. Vbios works for me since bidirectional prochot wont be enabled as they both have seperate cooling. Thanks again man. Seriously, you made my alienware worth having.

Awesome, looking forward to it. I haven't been on this board for long but thanks for using your knowledge to help us get the most out of our systems - I'll need it for Titanfall :)

Could someone mirror this somewhere else? I've been looking for an unlocked bios and stumbled on this recently, but i'm new to the site so i can't download anything.

Unfortunately I don't think anyone will do that for you. I'm fairly new to the forum too and have spent a great deal of time reading through posts. This seems like a pretty close nit group who work as a team because I looked every where else for A13 modded as well. I think if you took the time to make those five posts you would find other valuable information. I know I sure have.

so the move to A13 is safe for this procedure? I had heard a few weird issues arising from A13.

For anyone on A14 just a heads up you can downgrade to unlocked A13 no issues with the PRR tool etc

I just upgraded from unlocked A03 bios first to unlocked A11 and then unlocked A13 and the only difference I see in the bios interface is a second tab that says main. No option for BDPROCHOT anywhere. Why is that? And is it necessary sometimes to reinstall windows after bios update for everything to be stable? Thank you in advance to anyone that can give me any information regarding these questions.

I've been on A13 for a while and really haven't had any issues other then the throttle, But I'm still OCed and getting a lot more out of the card when I hit the throttle

Sorry I posted in wrong thread. I meant the AW 14 needs solder mod for an unlocked bios. Is that correct?
