Dear Klem,

 

Could you unlock mine also?

(power limit, overclock and overvolt)

 

thank you!

(the one you gave me before wasn’t based on my vbios version and gave me black screen on boot, had to reflash it with my previous one on another laptop)

Hello, I am new to this forum and I have an old Sager P150SM-A that I would be like to use for overclocking. The problem is that I have a GTX 970m 6gb whose vBios does not allow for more then 135mhz on the core. I would like to know if there is a way of breaking the limit, without any experience in modding. Thanks in advance.

Hi!

Ok. Send me your original stock vbios from your card, or upload it to any fileserver and send me the link.

Hi Klem, thanks for your help.

 

Lenovo y50-70

i7 4720hq

gtx 960m

 

having some trouble tweaking it for best gaming performance (Overwatch). I can play around with CPU clocks and voltage, but the mobile maxwell GFX are leaving some room for improvement.

 

I have NVFlash but the instructions to use it, linked from the OP, are missing the attachments that tell you what to do.

Hello. I want to ask a question. I have Asus X556UQK-DM537 notebook and it has 940mx ddr3. I have already overclocked +135 on core and +230 on memory. Temperature is fine. Is modding 940mx vbios possible? I have tried GPU-Z dump, and it gives me error: "Bios reading is not supported on this device." I read old replies on this topic and you say 940mx vbios is in system bios. I have uefi bios. Is this possible?

Well, in this laptop model, vbios it's a part of main system bios, therefore Nvflash can't read/write vbios in this laptop. You can overclock your 960M with Nvidia Inspector utility.

If you want to try overclock 960M more then +135MHz, you need to modify and then flash your main system bios. Check your PM.

Hi everyone, I am a newcomer and wanted to send a message, but now I know I can only reach him here for example, I will post it here.

So sorry everyone for long post, maybe even wrong thread, but I am reffering here (see ---).
 

Hey @Klem,

 

I think you could help me a lot.

I have particularly read a 1,5 year old thread on this site  this thread (page 35) where you posted a modified .rom file for the Quadro M2000M for someone, and I can't download it now, so I decided to sign up and give it a try, after using VPN as well, so I guess that link is dead.

But as I see after signing up, you are still active on the site, so maybe better if I tell everything about what I want to do.

 

So to begin my story, I have a 4 year old Dell Precision M4800 with a Quadro K1100M, i7 4800MQ, FHD display, running on retail Win 10 Pro (for more specs I can give a service tag later).

I was recently thinking about GPU performance improvement, so I have bought a Quadro M2000M card from eBay for only about 160 USD.

Did the decision after reading a long forum on Notebookreview. The slot is the same, TDP is same as the better stock GPU (K2100M), so in short: it should work as many people confirmed it. Also, it is a really big performance improvement, so I can use this laptop for even more years without a desktop, maybe it is obvious, nevermind.

(Why Quadro?: I am working with CADs too, not just gaming)

So, the card I have bought is unfortunately a HP version (but cheaper and new), at least it is described as that, I think can even link that too:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/232952540187

 

I have a friend working with computer techs (not in a computer service), who already helped me in disassembling my laptop for cleaning, replacing parts etc. (even choosing it), so I have not much expereince in either flashing, modding any BIOS, besides replacing parts with a tutorial, but he has some experience in it, and he is willing to help me in the project, applying thermal paste too, which I have also never done (I know it is important to be done properly).

I am telling this because I am the one who has the time to look up things, such as sending you this message.

The card will be at my place this week, so I don't even know yet how it actually looks (got delivered at other location fine by the way).

 

As I read the steps on that forum, I know that I have to turn off driver signature to modify the driver .inf file (after checking Vendor ID in GPU-Z), and then it should work fine, maybe with a bit loud fans. What I still don't know for sure, is that it will maybe work only with external displays (I have one Dell U2417H monitor and a docking station, as well as my friend, so that's not a problem, more on that later), because the built-in panel is surely LVDS (checked it with HWInfo and Google search), and some says (and one of my friends contact too) that this card works with eDP only, which means I won't get internal screen with the GPU. So my first question is: do you know anything sure about this?

 

The second, and current problem is that, as I have downloaded the softwares that we may need, such as the things I have already mentioned (the driver that needs to be modificated, GPU-Z, even Dell vBIOS for this GPU) but also NiBiTor and NVFlash. I tried to use NiBiTor, but it even refuses to open my existing .rom exported with GPU-Z.

I think it doesn't support mobile Quadro cards.

So, the second question is, can you provide me a stock, Dell version .rom of M2000M, and tell me how to open it? Beacuse it seems to be NiBiTor is useless in this case for any future modifications, for example underclocking for lower temps/noise. Or do you think, it would even work with that vBIOS?

I can't give you specific Vendor ID until we got the card in on this Friday with my friend.

 

Any advice can be useful, and I am new to this, so tried to type everything down as precise as I can.

Even if you can send me that .rom what you uploaded in 2017 is a big help.


Thanks in advance!

 

Regards,

Mat

 

P.S.: Sorry for bad english.

Hi @Klem, can you unlock my vbios for the 840M? (ASUS K451ln)

I already modded the vbios a bit to undervolt the GPU by raising the Max Table Clock, but depending on the game I still got stutters and clock drops that showed in GPU-Z 

as PerfCap Reason: Pwr, which I assume is hitting PowerLimit throttle

but then this only happen in games, in Furmark I can force it to run with 1.2V voltage and doesn't hit that power throttle, so Im hoping that having unlocked TDP maybe could solve the issue.

When I edit my vbios with Maxwell BIOS Tweaker the memory clock and temp target also doesn't seem to stick, hopefully that would be fixed as well

Thanks in advance!

 

This is my the vbios Im using 840M.rom

And this is the default one I pulled from the latest system bios 840M.bin

I also tried a modded vbios that presumedly has been unlocked and made for the Acer Aspire E5-572G, but after numerous tries the gpu is not recognized after I replace the vbios using UEFITools (MMTools report a "Invalid FFS" error that I assume due to mismatch checksum since the size of 2 BIOSes are different) Aspire E5-572G.rom

I hope asking this question isn't frowned upon, but I'd really like to remove the startup message I get when I use the 980m Slv7 vbios. I love what it does, but slowing down startup to show it every time I want to fire up my PC has resulted in me uninstalling it. I'm worried about just deleting stuff and creating problems. I didn't mind seeing the message that much at first, but I'd like to be able to skip it entirely if possible. If someone could show me what to delete, I'd be very thankful.

      Required items:
      1.) Lenovo u310 (I have a Core i3 - Ivy Bridge, 8GB RAM)
      2.) 65CN99WW unwhitelisted.
      3.) eGPU (I used a EVGA GTX 750 Ti from another computer I had).
      4.) EXP GDC mPCIe Edition adapter (got from eBay - banggood seller).
      5.) ATX power supply (I used a 600W PSU from another computer I had).
      6.) USB wireless.
      7.) External monitor, keyboard, and mouse.
       
      Steps:
      1.) Obtain and install a unwhitelisted BIOS. If you are unable to obtain a unwhitelist BIOS, I think it might be possible to bypass it with Tech Inferno Fan's Setup 1.x (may need confirmation as I haven't used it myself yet.)
      2.) Shutdown computer and remove all USB devices, ethernet cables, power cables, card reader cards.
      3.) Remove mPCIe wireless card and detach antennas.
       
       
      4.) Attach EXP GDC external mPCIe cable to the former wireless slot and screw down.
       
       
      5.) Attach HDMI end of the mPCIe cable adapter to the EXP GDC device.
       
       
      6.) Attach graphics card to the EXP GDC device (I moved my laptop off the desk and onto the side shelf to make room on the desk for the monitor/keyboard/mouse).
       
       
      7.) Using the power cable adapters that came with the EXP GDC device, I hooked in my ATX power supply's 20 pin and CPU 4 pin cables. Then hooked the other end (8 pin) into the EXP GDC device. My EVGA 750 Ti also required that I use an additional PCIe power cable (6 pin) in the top of the card.
       
       
       
       
       
      8.) Then I attached my misc devices (HDMI monitor, USB keyboard/mouse/wireless adapter), and hooked in my PSU and powered it on (below is image of final product, also moved HDMI cable out of the way).
       

       
      9.) Power on your computer and let it install the standard VGA drivers and then install your drivers (I didn't have to go in the BIOS for any graphics settings, which it doesn't have anyways, nor did I have to disable iGPU in Device Manager before the card was added).
       
      Extra Info:
      I found that most games will play on med settings with about 45 FPS with this particular card.
      BDO: Upscale on - Anti Aliasing on - SSAO off - med settings.
      Skyrim: Med-High settings.
      Fallout 4: Med settings.

      ok, so, i have a serious problem atm.
      im trying to mod my bios so that i can go past the normal overclocking limit. however, everytime i try to do it, it always says "file size does not match existing bios size!", and it's really annoying, since i had to find everything myself, as no one else online tried this on my specific model, besides me. (which surprises me, really)
      this is the guide im following:
      So this is my detailed description how I managed to mod and overclock my GTX 960M in my Lenovo Y50-70. Please note: it is very dangerous to play with the BIOS, so you need to be very careful! I take NO RESPONSIBILITY for any damage or misuse of the information below! Use it AT YOUR OWN RISK!
       
      -------
       

      Necessary tools:
      A. Fptw64 from Intel (9.5 or above)
      http://forum.hwbot.org/showthread.php?t=75024
      B. PhoenixTool (2.50 or above)
      C. Maxwell II BIOS Tweaker (1.36)
      https://www.techpowerup.com/downloads/2562/maxwell-ii-bios-tweaker-v1-36/
       
      -------------------------
       
      How to flash Modded BIOS:
      0. Flash the latest (3.03 now) official BIOS
      1. From Windows, start 'cmd' as Administrator and read your your BIOS via Fptw64:
         Fptw64 -d BIOS.ROM -bios
      2. Reboot, enter your BIOS and check "Enable downgrading BIOS" feature (we need to downgrade first in order to flash the modded BIOS)
      3. From Windows, downgrade to 1.13 (this is necessary because the newer BIOSes have protection against mod-ding)
      4. After reboot & reflash, start Windows, then enter standby, wait a bit, then wake up the machine
      5. Create your modded BIOS, see separate list below
      6. Start 'cmd' as Administrator and write your _modded_ BIOS via Fptw64:
         Fptw64 -f BIOS_MODDED.ROM -bios
       
      -------------------------
       
      How to create modded BIOS (point 5 above):
      5.1 Start PhoenixTool.exe from Phoenix Tool 2.50 and open your previously saved original BIOS.ROM from point #1 above
       .2 The tool analyses it and shows some messages, click OK
       .3 Now you can find your vBIOS in the "DUMP" subfolder in the folder containing your BIOS.ROM, with the file name:
          BE13645B-2C2C-44D2-A64F-0EA052C34597_1796.ROM
       .4 Create your modded vBIOS, see separate list below -> let's call it 960M_OC.MOD
       .5 Click on "Structure"
       .6 Open "EFI BIOS" tag
       .7 Open second "File Volume {7A9354D9-...}" tag
       .8 DXE Core -> Compressed Section -> Raw section -> File Volume {7A9354D9-...}
       .9 In the very long list, find the following tag (usually displayed at around 80% of the list):
          Freeform {BE13645B-2C2C-44D2-A64F-0EA052C34597}
          This is the item containing the latest vBIOS
       .10 Open the tag, then "GUID defined section", then click on Raw section. "Internal number" (in the top right corner) should be 1796 for BIOS 3.03.
       .11 Click on "Replace" and select your modded vBIOS (called 960M_OC.MOD above)
       .12 Click exit "Exit" and say Yes to "Save changes?"
       .13 Close the Phoenix Tool; now you should have your BIOS.ROM updated (the original will be saved as BIOS.ROM.OLD for safety)
       
      -------------------------
       
      How to create modded vBIOS (point 5.4 above):
      Use Maxwell II BIOS Tweaker to change BE13645B-2C2C-44D2-A64F-0EA052C34597_1796.ROM;
      5.4.1 Open the ROM
         .2 Change "Boost Clock" on "Common" tab to the new boost-ed maximum value
         .3 On "Boost table" tab, use the slider in the right bottom corner to increase your max boost-ed value to the same number
         .4 On "Boost states" tab, at P00 profile, change the MAX values in the GPC, L2C and XBAR fields to the same max boost-ed value
         .5 Save your modified BIOS and rename it to 960M_OC.MOD
       
      (My boost-ed max value was 1359 MHz. I could then use MSI Afterburner's software tuning -> my 960M could reach 1454 MHz without voltage increase.)
      i know that it's for a different laptop, but its basically the same
      ill provide more info when im home
