[vBIOS - MODS] Asus - Prema Mod™

Recommended Posts

Just follow the included readme file...GPU must me active...for that keeping GPU-Z ope is enough.

Also stay away from 361.xx driver...any other version is fine.

Is it strange that i max out my gpu to 700+ and the temps are 44? , i thought everyone was getting 80c or near 92c or something, I downloaded the file for the 3gb asus and it's so cool still, i feel like it could go higher then max!

 

I downloaded the mod and everything seems to be working perfectly but there's a problem when i use an extensive application gpu tweak says the gpu is stuck at 540 mhz, do i have to do anything more to make it unlock? No wonder why the temps are so cool

Three possibilities: 

 

- You are running on battery

- The Windows power plan is not set to performance mode. > Edit Windows power plan to performance mode.

- The card crashed on very high clocks before and is now in "safe mode" > Power cycle the system with a full shutdown, then reboot on battery and plug in AC Adapter only in Windows. (Sometimes even needs a fresh flash to reset).

Then next time clock the card lower...something like 1300Mhz @ 1.1v...

The 1700Mhz you have set there is unreached on Maxwell Mobile (except in our internal testing with special mods and 1.4v)...

 

Also get rid (uninstall) of EVGA Precision/GPU Tweak and instead use NVIDIA Inspector.

Some of the settings there in EVGA look like stuck from an old version.

Are all of the instructions in the download for how to install this? If not could someone explain to me how to do this and if there are any extra programs i need to download first? Also what is the best program for overclocking using this method?

Hi Prema, I have a question

Asus has made available the possibility to UPGRADE the "old" G751JY notebooks to G-SYNC tecnology. Here is the LINK to the thread on the Asus forums.

 In order to do this, it will be probably necessary to sent it back to Asus so they can make the necessary hardware and software upgrades.

 

I would like to flash on the GPU my original 980m vBios (that I have dumped before using your modified one). 

Could you please point me to the right flash program and version, and what commands do I need to type to re-flash back the original vBios file?

 

Of course I will be providing you with a dump of the new original vBios (G-Sync enabled) as soon as I recive my notebook back, so you may compare it with the one you already posted here.

 

Thank you and keep up the good work

Hi Eklyptus!

Yes, the files come with a readme and instructions on how to do it. It's streight-forward, Prema made it real easy for us ;)

@Prometheus091 We will also need a dump of your motherboard BIOS as apparently there are some HWIDs that will be added which the software checks on the GPU BIOS and the motherboard BIOS. I am excited to see if we can all get this for free after someone like you dumps the files for everyone. 

 

@Prema What exactly is wrong with the 361.xx drivers? Will the Asus bios get updated to v2.0? Thank you so much for your work. This is awesome.

Hi Prema, i would like to know if there is no problem installing this vbios on Windows 10? :logik:

I don't think the Asus vBIOS Mod is effected by the 361.xx "bug".

There is also no problem with flashing in W10.

@Prema is there any reason for us Asus users to want this BIOS to be update to v2.0 or would there be no real benefit to us?

Although my card seems to be much more stable with this BIOS I get a black screen when booting my machine about half the time and I need to hit the power button twice to put it to sleep and wake it in order to get my login screen. This absolutely co=incided with loading the Prima BIOS on my G751JY w/GTX980m and I would greatly appreciate if us Asus users could get updated to v2.0 as I am hoping that will deal with the issue. I am on 361.43 btw.

@Exostenza

I have the same model but not the problem. Maybe it was a bad flash?

Try to flash the bios again (before doing it make sure you load your standard bios options).

@Prometheus091 thanks for the reply. I have loaded up 361.91 after using DDU (which seems to be a rock solid driver btw) and the problem seems to have gone away!

 

Still wondering if the v2.0 mod would benefit us Asus users or is there no real benefit if there are no 361 based issues?

 

Thanks again for your awesome mod. Definitely enjoying the new found stability.

Well guys here tend to be on the practical side of things so if Prema is not updating he mod to 2.0, it is probably because it doesn't need to. At least that would be my guess.

Happy to see you resolved your problems.

Is it possible to unlock and improve G551jw 960m vbios ? Many of users have problem with thermal throttling during long game sessions. Maybe somebody can help us ?

In this laptop Asus placed thermal throttling limit in EC firmware (no in vbios). This means that for solve this problem, you need flash bios with moded EC firmware only with hardware programmer device.

So we can do nothing with thermal throttling ? Maybe there is a way to slow the rise in temperature ? And what about power throttle which also occurs ?

 

Now my gtx960m is OC 135mhz on core and 135mhz on memory  (vbios limits) and throttles after half an hour of gta v. It's no so bad but always could be better.

 

And here is my full bios, maybe it could help.

Good morning,

 

I have been watching your work for quite a while now and I have been waiting for an update on the 3gb G-SYNC version 970m on the ASUS g751JT.

I have got this Asus model but cannot seem to find the unlocked vbios for it ( 3gb 970m G-SYNC asus g751JT)

 

Could you kindly help me if I were to send you my vbios?

 

Thanks in advance.

 

Good day.

Hello, Prema

I am looking foward to use  your vbios version specially for g751jt with gsync enabled, i've already sent you a message on your website. Thanks a lot for your job. 
Here's my vbios and information about card and system:

      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.

      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,
       
      I am new on this forum, so I am sorry if posting at the wrong place. It's been 2 weeks that I am searching how to make my GTX 980M 8GB working Inside my Alienware 17 R1 (June 2014, i7 4710MQ, 60 Herts Display, OPTIMUS and the GTX 880M Inside died.)
      After "quickly" looking some forums, I saw that a 980M would easily fit Inside … but maybe I was wrong.
       
      Hardware wasn't a problem. I've also could install drivers by modding the nvdmi or nvcvi. inf files. The card was recognied BUT :
      the clock speed is locked a 135 or 405 Mherts and fan is not runing when booted up.
      I tried to flash vBios with nvflash and some ROM I found on vBios collection … but no way to get this working properly.
       
      So, i'm coming here. I've seen many people talking about Prema or svl7 or other big boss in the place … but ? how ? where ? when ?
       
      Inside the peripherial manager I have this in remote acces path : PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1617&SUBSYS_05AA1028&REV_A1\4&D590A51&0&0008
      So I assume my GTX 980M card ID is 1617 and vendor and PC Model are 05AA 1028.
      But near the "Standard Microsoft Video Card" there is a yellow exclamation point and Inside details it says "this peripherial doesn't work properly" when no Nvidia drivers installed.
      I could find some vBios with 1617 (Asus) but black screen at boot up. Since laptop model where not the same .. probably.
      And I wasn't able to find 1617 with the existing 05AA 1028 … as the GTX 980M was not an option for my model. (AW 17 R1 2014 ,60Herts)
      I tried 353.60, 382.33 and 419.35 drivers. The latest one seems easier to install but longer.
       
      BIOS is A16 from Dell. And I am using Windows 10. Got a Dell 330W brick. 
       
      I saw a guy with the exact model as me, he gets a modded vBios especially for his configuration, then everything worked easily … but can't find the topic again
       
      I guess depending on the card info and the laptop model … a dedicated vBios is required … 
       
      So, If anyone here got some informations or any kind of help for me, it would be very nice.
       
      Thanks for reading and help.  
       
      PS: there are a lot of files, pictures and links that I can't see on this forum .. even after registration ….
