Hello dear friends,

I have thought to buy myself a gaming Notebook. I want to use it for a Long time. As i heard, gaming Laptops has th big disadvantage, that they don´t hold much Long.

But i want protability and Performance. So i thought to buy in one month a Laptop named gygabite p35x v5 or p35x v7. They both have good specs such like 4k and good graphics gtx 980m




My questions are, are These Laptops good. Is the brand Gigabyte good. How is the stability?

But the moost concern i have about this Laptop is, will i be able to overclock gtx 980m of this Notebook. I looked in this Forum and i saw many vbios mods, unlocking voltage mods,

but not for this type of brand. The big Problem will be for me the +135 mhz Limit. This Little overclock is not what i want. But i have seen a General gtx 980m vbios, whis could be for all notebooks

with gtx 980m.  It´s the link https://www.techinferno.com/index.php?/forums/topic/6729-nvidia-maxwell-vbios-mods-900m-series-overclocking-versions/ .

Will this overclocking guide work for the Laptop models above?

Gigabyte is a really good brand but if you want a gaming notebook I would avoid 4k panels. Even desktops with dual Titan X's can barely handle 4K so a mobile GPU like 980m would choke and be completely useless. You would be forced to play at non-native resolution and on an LCD that looks terrible. I would pick a gaming notebook that has the standard 1920 x 1080p resolution and the 980m as the perfect combination.

      First of all, big thanks to Dschijn, nando, goalque and the rest for their fantastic guides!
      Tested Computer:
      2014 15" MBP with Iris Pro only; i7-4770hq @ 2.2 GHz (Turbo to 3.4); 500 gb ssd
      Parts List:
      PSU: EVGA 600 B1 80+ BRONZE
      GPU: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 970 Mini ITX Overclocked GV-N970IXOC-4GD
      Thunderbolt 2 Enclosure: AKiTiO Thunder2 PCIE box
      Cables: 2 Molex to 1 PCIE cable (to make a molex to barrel adapter)
      2.5mm x 5.5 mm male DC Barrel Plug  (screw terminals are the easiest)
      Monitor: Dell 1920x1080
      ^^Not sure why there are links there...
      1) Install Windows 10 via bootcamp instructions here
      2) Download latest Nvidia drivers here
      3) Open Akitio enclosure
      4) Line up the x16 on the graphics card with the physical x16 slot on the Akitio. Push in the graphics card and screw the top screws on the Akitio to hold the graphics card steady. Plug in the PCIe 6/8 pin connector(s)  from the PSU into the graphics card. 
      5) Make a Molex to Barrel Adapter using the 2 molex to 1 PCIE cable in conjunction with the barrel plug instructions here
      As Dschijn suggested, I made the barrel plug with 2x molex instead of 1x molex by twisting together 1 yellow  wire (12V) from each molex connector and 1 ground from each molex. The yellows go in the positive terminal while the grounds go in the negative; make sure the plug is center positive! Be sure to check polarity of the barrel plug with a multi meter to make sure it is center positive! 6) Plug in the molex to barrel adapter into the PSU's molex connectors. Apply the paperclip trick or adapter on the PSU's 20/24 pin connector
      7) Plug the barrel into the Akitio's power input
      8) Connect the thunderbolt cable from the Akitio into the Macbook
      9) Connect the video output cable from the eGPU to your desired monitor
      10) Turn on the Mac while holding "Alt"
      11) When the boot selection screen appears, turn on the PSU (I use a power strip)
      12) Count to 5/wait for the fans on the GPU to spin up
      13) Select "Windows" on the boot screen
      14) Install Nvidia drivers
      15) Follow the prompts to restart the computer and what not.
      16) Profit
      The Boot Procedure that works most of the time for me:
      Assuming everything is plugged in, power on the macbook while holding Alt When boot selection appears, turn on the PSU with a power strip Count to 5 or wait for GPU fans to spin up Select Windows Both screens should work. If not, turn everything off and try again.
      I use Intel's XTU tool to undervolt and underclock its boost speed to reduce heat output. I underclocked it to 3.0 GHz and undervolted it by -75 mV. There are UV guides on the internet
      I used EVGA's Precision tool to OC the Graphics card. I managed to get +190 MHz on the core clock and +350 MHz (+700 MHz effective) on the memory (probably could push further).
      I also use a custom fan curve on the GPU via EVGA's Precision Tool. Temps never go above 61 degrees Celsius.
      World of Tanks runs everything on Max/High 60fps @ 1080p with VSync and Triple Buffering on
      Witcher 3 runs Max/High no hairworks smoothly with no noticeable drops
      Naval Action (In alpha) runs everything on max no AA (kills fps in this game at this moment) @ 1080p open world and combat
      CSGO obviously no problems
      BF4 high in multiplayer @ 1080p and 60 fps
      Warframe is smooth everywhere on Max including Physx @ 1080p and 60fps
      Fallout 4 is same as above as far as I could tell
      Questions are welcome even though I might not be able to answer all of them.
      EDIT: Almost forgot to mention the paperclip trick
      External 1920x1080 Monitor:
      Heaven 4.0: Extreme settings at 1920x1080 with extreme Tess. and 8x AA
      GPU OC: +190/+350
      Score: 1310

      Valley: Extreme HD settings 1920x1080
      GPU OC: +190/+200
      score: 2318

      Score: 8980

      Score: 9154

      SteamVR Performance Test:
      VR Ready
      +150/+200 Fidelity could be higher with a higher overclock
      CPU: limited to 3.0 Ghz and undervolted by 75 mV via Intel XTU
      Note: It says Iris Pro Graphics for GPU but it actually tested the GTX 970
      Fidelity: High 6.2
      Frames below 90 fps: 0
      Frames CPU Bound: 0

      Windows 10 Optimus
      Heaven: same settings as above, +150/+200
      Score: 1137
      ~13% performance loss

      Firestrike (demo version on steam):
      Score: 7754
      ~14% performance loss

      Hey Guys,
      I sold my Asus GTX 760 DirectCUII OC on ebay around two months ago, the guy reported it as not working even though I had previously used it without problems from new. Just received it back today to check for myself why it is not working but I have a new build from what I used the card before. Currently running an AMD 7850K APU with no dedicated card except for the 760 I just got back.
      There is power as shown by the green LED, the fans are spinning at max but the card is not detected as the buyer first reported. I have tried connecting via HDMI and DVI to VGA. The six pin power is plugged into my Corsair RM650 PSU, which is obviously more than sufficient. The card is seated and fixed in slot correctly as repeated this twice to make sure. Done a BIOS reset by removing battery, disabled the onboard graphics in BIOS to allow for PCI to take over. I am using the Gigabyte GA-F2A88XN-WIFI Mini-ITX so there is only one PCI-E slot.
      I can only think that the card has been flashed or voltages run too high by this guy and therefore rendered the card useless, there is no physical damage ruling out courier damage in transit. I doubt of any liquid damage since there is no signs of residue and the card powers on fine.
      Any ideas? Anyway to detect the card outside of windows device manager such as some software or in DOS? Can I flash the card or check it's status even though it's not detected?
      Thinking to just RMA it to Asus but that will take a ridiculous amount of time.
