EC Firmware for MSI GT60-ONC ivy bridge

Recommended Posts

I've been trying to look/search for people or rather members in forums like this one who could help me find out on how to check the ec firmware for my GT model. I want to find out if it is possible to modify or edit the firmware in reading more than 180 watts. I have a 240 watts dell adapter that runs with my NB but I don't know if the ec firmware is locked to read only of up to 180 watts. Or is there an app that can read wattage from the adapter?  I hope somebody here can help me out.

 

 

Thanks

I have the latest unlock firmware (T19) modded by svet in MSI Forums. The problem is svet won't tell me if the firmware is unlock when it comes to reading the ac adapter wattage of up to 330watts. I know "wattometer" is a hardware that can monitor the consumption of an electronic device which i don't have one. Or anybody that can help me or suggest a site that has a software that can monitor the wattage of a nb. Thanks

What I will suggest you to do is open a hardcore game like Witcher, GTA5, and use RivaTuner Statistics Server to monitor the frequency of CPU and GPU, if there isn't any frequency drop in a long time, then you don't have to worry about the watt limit.

Also, if you do see a frequency drop, make sure you check the temperature out! It might because it's the problem of the temperature.
