If you also want Prema Mod vBIOS for other AW systems, then just dump your current vBIOS with this tool and PM me the files.

Looking at the M18 GTX980 bios. My computers the older M18Xr2 with the 980M's installed are those firmware files you got ok for it even tho theyre for the newer M18 model?

No flashing the wrong system BIOS would probably brick it!

You can use the vBIOS, but the Clevo version is even better for the M18XR2.

You can either use the AW18 version or the Clevo Mod...just stay away from 361 driver as it crashes, freezes on far too many systems...

@Prema  I am having issues with the clevo 1.1.1 vbios in my Alienware 17 R1. I have a 980m I installed using the 3 pipe heatsink and I keep having the card overheat, but only in certain games. ie. World of Warcraft will take my gpu up to 85*C+ where as looping uniengine benchmarks or 3dmark will never take the gpu over 75*C.

I am using a Cooling pad with 2 80mm fans directly pointing at the fan intakes. I have also upgraded the gpu fan in the laptop from the stock 1.Xcfm one to the 10.6cfm model from the R3. 

I have an ASIC reading of 81.3%. What I am thinking is maybe this vbios has too much voltage applied for long term gaming for the cooling system in this machine? Will this Alienware 18 vbios help me with my issues at all or should I try a vbios with a lower 3dclock voltage? My current load voltage is 1.062v.

I am running 359.06 mobile modded inf drivers.

I honestly don't care about overclocking I just want this thing to be stable with or without my laptop cooler under it.

I have just updated the AW18 GTX980M Prema Mod vBIOS to v2.

It'll properly support the latest NVIDIA driver releases.

 

ENJOY! :sorcerer:

Hi Prema,

It works but for systems other than AW18 the Clevo base works best:

Im trying to download stuff on this site and its not working (newbie account). Tried to upgrade many times my Elite mebership, without success. Contacted one of your mods, he created some invoices but somehow my paypal doesnt accept my payment. I use my paypal for several other things, so if i could just straight forward send you some money to your account and you in exhange help me with my card (gtx980m on M17xr4 /3d), that would be great.

Please let me know.

 

EDIT: NVM got my membership now.

The best public Mod for your card/system would be this one:

 

 

Use it alongside this driver Mod:

Hello Prema.

Please help, I upgrade M18R2 GTX675 to GTX970(single), upgrade BIOS to A12 and flash  AW18_6GB_GTX970M_OC_PM_v2.rar to GTX970.

But still have 8 BEEPs after switch on laptop, is there any differences between SLI vBios and single mod?

How I can solve my problem?

Thank You in advance.

I am rather curious, the 970m 6GB card I got for my m17xR4 was from an Alienware 18, given the machine it is used in right now, would it be best to flash the Alienware 18 vBios for the card? I have the Clevo vBios flashed, lets me overclock and go bananas but power throttles once it hits 105 Watts. (35% TDP via GPU-Z).

 

A curiosity as I want to push this card and not worry about the wattage as much, I have a 330W Brick at my disposal and the card hits maybe 66-68 *C under load. I just want to see what this card is capable of and see how it compares to his 980m,

      Hello guys,
      I have a GT72VR 6RE with G-sync MSI Laptop. Sadly the GPU is partially dead (artefacts all over the screen, crashes, windows detecting a damaged hardware etc...).

      So I bought an other GTX1070 MXM on ebay, which was used in a Vortex G65 6RE before.
      Sadly, when I plug the new GPU in the laptop, the laptop screen stays completly off, but i can use the HDMI port. So i though that I would just have to flash the vbios to the one I was using on the GPU that died, but I couldn't because of a mismatch betwen the PCI Device ID.
      The new GPU ID is : 10DE 1BA1 - 1462 11AF and the previous GPU ID was :10DE 1BE1 - 1462 11AF
      Pretty close right? but the A1 and E1 variation are fcking everything up. I've read that 1BA1 is for non G-sync and 1BE1 is for G-sync. I've also read that the G-sync variation is not part of the card but is an external part no on the GPU board.

      So now I'm wondering what can I do : is there a way to force the vbios flash or to change the PCI ID ? I really need some help here. I'm no expert and I've try as much as I could. Maybe I need to do some vbios editing but I don't really know how to do it and what to do exactly to make this work.

      Thank you very much for your help guys

      Hi guys, I am the proud owner of a Clevo p775dm3-g notebook purchased from azom.systems (authorized Clevo reseller in India, Model rebranded as Azom Legion-17.3 inches). Here are my specs:

      Core i7 7700 (non-K version): undervolted by 110 mv and turbo boost disabled in BIOS- machine uses prema mod BIOS.
      GTX 1080: undervolted by 100 mv on all frequency steps using MSI afterburner voltage/frequency curve editor. clocks are untouched.
      16 GB DDR4: Cant remember clocks.
      1440p 120 Hz screen: No tinkering done to refresh rate.

      CPU has been delidded and repaste has been done on both CPU/GPU dies with gallium based TIM-Coolaboratory liquid ultra if I recall correctly.

      My issue is GPU hitting max temp limit of 90 degrees while playing DOOM and framerate drops from 110 avg to mid 60s-70s with horrible stuttering- this is thermal throttling for sure.

      System was running beautifully after repaste at 86 degrees max/ 77 degrees average at 100 percent fan speed. A month later I decided to see how much further I could push the system and ended up undervolting the CPU/GPU and RAM even further. The RAM undervolting part didnt work as well as I'd hoped, and I ended up resetting the BIOS to undo everything and reapply the previous setting (-110 for CPU with turbo boost disabled.) 

      I noticed that immediately after BIOS reset, both my CPU and GPU temps were 5-10 degrees higher even with the undervolt/underclock applied. Also, I think the fans were a bit louder before I reset the BIOS which leads me to believe that for some reason the fans are now capped at 80% max fan speed. There doesnt seem to be a fan speed selector in the BIOS or anywhere else so I cant say for sure whether this is a fan related issue or something else.Before the reset I could override the BIOS setting and set the fans to 100% by pressing fn+1, could I have done something to that setting after resetting the BIOS ? I dont think I have damaged the CPU or GPU as temps are holding fairly steady at 90-91 degrees and laptop doesn't shut down while gaming.

      If I have overlooked something or if anyone reading this has any solution help would be greatly appreciated.
      All settings/drivers/windows version/app version are exactly the same before and after BIOS reset.
