    Alienware 15/17 R2 2015 vBIOS Mod

    I am glad that you found the correct version. I have found limited success in using that application as there are power restrictions in the SYSTEM Bios it seems.

    Thank you for the heads up Prema! No offense taken. My understanding is VERY limited with the Maxwell series of cards. Yes, I will get a copy of the original Bios up later today. Thank you, -Josh Absolutely, please review (at your convenience) the following link for the Stock VBIOS for Nvidia GTX 970m 3GB from AW 17 r2 (2015): https://www.dropbox.com/s/i6wd9u8myudrwo9/original.rom?dl=0 Thank you in advance! ~Best Wishes Joshua

    Hey Siegu, there is a method to review your clocks on that VBIOS. The most recent version of Maxwell II Tweak will allow you to review the core / mem / voltage of those cards. You will want to use NVFLASH to backup your VBIOS, there are instructions on this forum under the mobile Maxwell cards svl7 put up. Then you can use the Maxwell II Tweak to modify your clocks to match what you are looking for. Once I hit 5 posts, I can PM and explain in detail what I did. I do not want to post a thread and then have the wrong person attempt the process... aka, ruin their GPU. Best, Josh

    What movies have you seen lately?

    Big Hero 6 was fantastic! DO NOT go see Anabelle. Worst Horror movie ever. I do recommend that anyone who likes dry comedy / satires, watch "What we do in the Shadows". It is a "Real-World" Vampires movie that is drop on the floor hilarious.

    My first Alienware experience with AW17R2

    Sorry to hear about those issues with your order. I just received my AW 17, base system config with the iy4710HQ and GTX 970m. I was able to get a sales price (US) of 1215$ plus tax, free next day shipping. Upon completing the purchase, I received the unit in under 2 weeks. I would highly recommend posting to their Facebook page several times, you will elicit a response. My experience as a whole however has been very good with Dell and the Alienware 17R2.

    Alienware 15/17 R2 2015 vBIOS Mod

    *IMPORTANT THIS POST IS FOR EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY** *FILES LISTED HERE ARE FOR EDUCATIONAL REFERENCE ONLY** Hello all! I have recently purchased a Dell AW17 with the Nvidia GTS 970m 3GB and Intel i7 4710HQ. After countless testing and some annoyances due to the 180W PSU I have found VBios Settings that I like and provide a much needed performance boost to this GTX Nvidia 970M. I utilized NVFlash to backup the VBIOS while having the 970m disabled in the Device Manager. Using that Backup I made a custom VBIOS using the Maxwell II Tweak application to modify the Core Clock, Boost Clock to stay at P0 for the 1203 Core Clock and 2850 Memory Clock. I tweaked a few additional settings. If anyone is interested in reviewing my custom VBIOS, you can find it here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/5qjeym1a05st6gh/arom2.rom?dl=0 Thank you in advance all!
