  1. Download the Rufus utility to create a bootable flash drive https://rufus.akeo.ie/ Then you can follow this guide to flash your gpu http://forum.techinferno.com/nvidia-video-cards/2166-%5Bguide%5D-nvidia-vbios-flashing.html Let me know if you have trouble with Rufus and I can try and make a step by step for you
  2. Hey everyone just wanted to share my success story. My friend bought an MSI GT60 from Xotic PC years ago with 670M in it. Come to find out the laptop was not a real GT60 but a 16-F3 (Barebones version) and some people say the bios versions are not compatible but I want to confirm that you can get 780M working in a 16-F3 with the correct bios. Just last week we ordered up a 780M and dropped it into his laptop. The heatsink is slightly different and does not make contact with some of the chips but the card seems to be working pretty well and I plan on rigging up some heatsinks to the various smaller chips. I suggest ordering 0.5mm adhesive heat pads from eBay. Anyway his laptop started with (can be seen in the bios menu or using CPU-Z): Bios: E16F3IG6.304 Build Date and time 03/13/2012 EC: 16F3EG61 Ver4.05 EC Build: 03/21/2012 The computer booted with the 780M but the intel HD4000 would not start and neither would the 780M leaving us with a 640x480res and like 8bit colors. However after flashing the bios and video card bios all the drivers installed and everything is working well. Flashed laptop bios using Rufus to create a bootable USB stick and using the AFUDOS.exe tool to flash the laptop bios. Then I used nvflash to flash the video card bios. I did not flash the EC but New Bios etc. with the 780M working (Links to download below): Bios: E16F3IMS.51X Video card Bios: I hope this helps someone out. Message me with any questions or post in this thread. I'll edit this later and add some screenshots. Thanks, Chris Relevant links: (Video card Bios for various 780M cards) Video Bios Collection | techPowerUp (Motherboard Bios we used to get the 780M working properly) Zippyshare.com The Official MSI GT60/70 970m/980m Upgrade Thread | NotebookReview [REVIEW] MSI GT60 w/ GTX 780M 4GB GDDR5 | NotebookReview
  3. Went and saw The Wolverine opening night for me and my girlfriends 5 year anniversary. It was awkward as hell. Hugh Jackman roiding while the Japanese uphold stereotypes lol. It was more a comedy/action than a movie that could be taken seriously.
  4. There are only 2 antennas in my Y500 with the Intel 2230. I have read about people adding a 3rd though.
  5. I thought it was entertaining but I don't think it could not stand on its own. It's not like if I had never played the games or read the books would I have been like oh man this is so awesome. It was cool because of the nostalgia. Had some pretty cool visuals, cheesy at times though.
  6. I saw Pacific Rim opening night in a traditional IMAX. Visuals and sound were very impressive but augh the story is lack luster. Only worth seeing in IMAX for the quality prudes.
