  1. Hi Prema, PM with the Bios has been sent to your inbox.
  2. Hey good people, I've been thinking about moving from my good old P170SM to SLI setup, my very first thought was to get P377SM-A, but it turned out I've been late - they've been phased out of sales around three months ago in my parts of the world:/ But at the very same time I did get a nice offer for P375SM, and while I'm not a fan of that specific look I've started to consider accepting the offer. One thing that I've got hard times figuring out is what are the differences between P37XSM and P37XSM-A models? Or maybe someone knows where I can get P377SM-A anywhere in Europe;)?
  3. I would say that's a bit high, mine M18x R1 880m SLI was hitting 82 with the 580ms heatsinks. I've done another repaste, and it's around 75-77 nowadays.
  4. If anyone is interested, I can confirm that GT72 Upgrade kit 980M works with P170SM without any glitches:)
  5. Sure thing, will do that once I get the card. Thanks a lot!
  6. By the way, don't happen to have a 4gb flavor of your brilliant 980 Vbios;)?
  7. Yeah,it didn't sound like a good idea in the first place, but hey if the guy was brave or stupid enough... It turns out the MSI 980m comes from GT72 upgrade kit - I will give it a go.
  8. Thanks, actually I've heard about a guy who did that - flashing 8gb rom unto 4gb card did not brick the card:) On the other hand, he didn't really say how the card was behaving.
  9. I'm also interested in the thing , MSI made some series of 980m with 4Gb of RAM onboard - I've got the opportunity to get one of those with some nice price tag but I've got no idea if it fits my P170SM. If anyone tried that kind of a trick, please speak up:)
  10. The funny thing is that it apparently does not, Andrzej is mate of mine and he tried to shove the card into MSI GT70 1762 with no real luck, card got recognized and he was able to install the drivers but 3dmark etc were only using iGPU for some reason.. Any suggestions are more then welcome, also on the subject of putting that kind of a card into Clevo P170SM;)
  11. Ok, that may explain the odd behavior, I'll get rid of IXTU and give it a try then.
  12. I've raised the Command Rate with no real effect unfortunately - either IXTU watchdog kicks in just after Windows booted, or the system crashes during initialization. What's really funny - I removed two chips and now I enjoy 16GB of RAM running at 1867MHz:27_003:
  13. Will do that and report back BTW, will using the 2T flavor of your BIOS be of any help in that kind of a case?
  14. I'm already on your moded bios kind sir:) I did set the mem clocks to 1600Mhz, but it crashed on me once or twice, at one occasion laptop was not able to boot at all - that scared a sh*t out of me to be honest, but placing the dimm in another slot fixed the issue.
  15. Hi Guys, So I've got some peculiar problem with my Clevo P170SM, up to this time I've been running it with 16Gb RAM, splitted into two 8Gb dimms, and everything was going on alright. Just recently I've put my hands on two another chips, and decided to give 32Gb a go:) The thing is, whenever I add one or two chips defaut IXTU memory mode goes down to 1333Mhz instead of standard 1600Mhz - anybody got an idea what's going on? Tried swapping the chips, and each and every runs 1600Mhz on it's own or paired with another one...

    is my GPU fried?

    I second that, mine 7970m behaved in exactly the same way when voltage regulator on the card said "goodbye".
  17. It's not really significant afaik, as long as you paste your GPUs device ID into the nvdmi.inf file. GPU PCI id can be found in the Device Manager, assuming you're using Windows
  18. It's pretty much the same except you would be putting the device signature into the clevo file(nvcvi.inf) instead of dells file(nvdmi.inf). I've done that yesterday for 880M on 347.88, works like a charm
  19. 680M memory chips quality is not flat line unfortunately- mine went up to 600MHz in the afterburner but mine friend's one reaches 450 at the very most. Do check the thermalpads on the chips, that may help to some extent
  20. Try the svl7 thread on Nvidia vbioses - personaly I would go for a replacement though - 660M won't get you far even with serious overclocking in place
  21. I guess that better part of the people around here are already aware of this... Mine Clevo 7970m run up to 950@stock voltage rock-solid, ensure you got proper contact and thermpad between the voltage regulators and the heatsink - this may cause similiar problems afaik.
  22. I will give it a try definitely, but being a huge fan of Skyrim I've been a bit dissapointed with beta when I had occasion to give it a go..
  23. It might be so it's just displaying the GPU incorrectly while still using the 660m- had that thing a while ago with a Radeon GPU. If the game peformance is alright then there's nothing to be worried about..
  24. Hi guys, I've joined a couple of days ago while looking for a 880m vbios - liked what I've seen so I guess I'll hang around. My primary notebook is Clevo P170SM with GTX880m, and I was terribly lucky to get a heavily discounted MSI GT70, which I'm giving an overhaul right now.
