  1. Yes, I use a modded Vbios. I had been using MSI Fan Control to force the fan to run at around 80%, however since I did a repaste job on the CPU and GPU the other day, I no longer need to use that tool. Temps stay around 75c on their own. Most games are stable with that overclock. A few games like AC Unity or Crysis 3 I have to back the oc down a little.
  2. Mission success! Temps dropped about 17c. Thanks for you help.
  3. So I'm doing my first repasting job in my MSI GT70 20C (CPU and GPU), it has a connected heat pipe from the CPU to the GPU. All of the guides that I have watched of a GT70 didn't have the connected heat pipes. So my questions is: After I remove the cooling fan, should I disassemble everything together (the CPU and the GPU heat pipes/sinks) as one giant piece, or do I need to take apart the bridge heat pipe that connects the GPU to the CPU first since it rests on top of the CPU heat pipe? Also, for the sticky pads (in video guides they were white but mine seem black) if they become disconnected, how do I re-attach when reassembling? thanks!
  4. Fixed it! Uninstalled Heaven benchmark. Weird. What a crappy patch.
  5. Ok I did that. However, the problem persists.
  6. Can someone help?! I foolishly installed this. DSR showed up under the Manage 3D settings. But then the NV Control Panel crashed. It crashes every time I open the Manage 3D setting. I've tried re-installing the driver, re-installing with a clean install, uninstalling driver, running driver sweeper, reg cleaner. Nothing works! I created a restore point before I installed the DSR patch, however after it reboots I get an error saying that it can't restore. I found online that this is what the patch changes in the registry, how can I change it back? 02:50:15 Set Registry value HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\NVIDIA Corporation\Global\FTS\[@]EnableFSN1968 02:50:15 Set Registry value HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\NVIDIA Corporation\Global\FTS\[@]EnableRID41500 02:50:15 Set Registry value HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\NVIDIA Corporation\Global\FTS\[@]EnableRID41756 02:50:15 Set Registry value HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\NVIDIA Corporation\Global\FTS\[@]EnableFSN100 02:50:15 Set Registry value HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\NVIDIA Corporation\Global\FTS\[@]EnableRID46078 02:50:15 Set Registry value HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\NVIDIA Corporation\Global\FTS\[@]EnableRID50422 02:50:15 Set Registry value HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\NVIDIA Corporation\Global\FTS\[@]EnableRID50787 02:50:15 Set Registry value HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\NVIDIA Corporation\Global\FTS\[@]EnableRID52519 02:50:15 Set Registry value HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\CLASS\{4D36E968-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}\0000\[@]MonitorCapabilityList 02:50:15 Set Registry value HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\CLASS\{4D36E968-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}\0000\[@]DisableStereoLinks 02:50:15 Set Registry value HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\CLASS\{4D36E968-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}\0000\[@]D3DOGL_EnableConsumerStereoSupport 02:50:15 Set Registry value HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\CLASS\{4D36E968-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}\0000\[@]FeatureControl 02:50:15 Set Registry value HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\CLASS\{4D36E968-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}\0000\[@]RmCacheLoc 02:50:15 Set Registry value HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\CLASS\{4D36E968-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}\0000\[@]RmDisableInst2Sys
  7. Well, one of the publications I sent to wrote a story about this, rather short but at least it's something. Latest Nvidia GTX 900M drivers remove overclocking support - PC Gamer
  8. Hmm, after I did it the option was still greyed out like before. However, when I activate ShadowPlay via the on/off switch a small icon appears in the top right of the sample monitor in GFE. See image below. I guess it's always on then.
  9. How did you get +300 on the core? That's insane. I can only keep 1006mhz stable on the same card.
  10. It worked for me. Did you edit or create both entries in the registry? I closed GeForce Experience first and then made the edit.
  11. For reference I was getting a 3200 in FireStirke before overclocking. Here are some benchmarks. As you can see, overclocking is giving me quite the substantial gains. Oh and I tweaked my settings a bit more: Core: 1006 (+143) Memory: 5400 (+700) Voltage: 1.037v (+.037) BEFORE 2015-02-16 09:31:02 - FarCry4 Frames: 1887 - Time: 60000ms - Avg: 31.450 - Min: 23 - Max: 39 AFTER 2015-02-16 09:33:05 - FarCry4 Frames: 2369 - Time: 60000ms - Avg: 39.483 - Min: 30 - Max: 56 25% average gain BEFORE 2015-02-16 09:39:01 - Vanishing of Ethan Carter Frames: 2474 - Time: 60000ms - Avg: 41.233 - Min: 27 - Max: 57 AFTER 2015-02-16 09:41:42 - Vanishing of Ethan Carter Frames: 3039 - Time: 60000ms - Avg: 50.650 - Min: 0? - Max: 73 23% average gain BEFORE 2015-02-16 09:52:51 - DragonAgeInquisition Frames: 1930 - Time: 60000ms - Avg: 32.167 - Min: 26 - Max: 42 AFTER 2015-02-16 09:54:28 - DragonAgeInquisition Frames: 2382 - Time: 60000ms - Avg: 39.700 - Min: 31 - Max: 54 23% average gain Temps never pass 65c. But I do keep my fan running at 80% using Fan Control. Temps will go up to 75c if I also overclock my CPU since they share a heat pipe. I switch Physx to CPU (i7 4700mq) since it usually gives me a performance bump.
  12. When running a game or a benchmark like 3D Mark, the voltage and frequencies stay at their constant max. So would editing the other P-states help? I haven't been running the OC via the vBios. I've been doing it with Inspector. Do you think running it via the vBios would make a difference in the stability of the higher clocks or is it the same no matter how you're overclocking?
  13. I got into a discussion about this with several desktop users. Sadly, they totally support Nvidia's decision. I don't get why, even after all the evidence introduced, people still think that modern gaming laptops are incapable of dealing with the heat introduced while overclocking. I got responses like, "Speaking as an engineer and not a consumer, trust Nvidia engineers in the assumption that in the majority of cases not allowing OC is a good idea." Such ignorance. I don't even have a 900 series mobile GPU, but I can totally see the consequences of these actions. I sent this story along with a link to the petition to every gaming news site I could think of to try and drum up more coverage. There are a lot of people who haven't considered OC now but may in the future and they have no idea about this. Sadly, there's been no response.
  14. ^This. I'm still pissed that they don't support desktop capture on my mobile card. I mean come on, really? Is it that hard? What is it about a laptop GPU that's incapable of this feat?
