  1. [HARDWARE MOD]980m to Desktop 980 core upgrade

    Ram size doesn't matter. Desktop 980 is only 4GB anyway. As for the vBIOS rewrite, I don't know how you're going to manage that. The kepler boards used a resistive strap device ID. I don't know how this would work with the 980 core. I'm guessing you'd just remove the strap resistors and hopefully then the core would report.
  2. Looking to part out a P157SM

    Awesome, my "new" laptop will now no longer have missing pieces.
  3. Looking to part out a P157SM

    $70 for the drive is a bit steep for me, so I'm thinking of bidding instead of buyout unless you want to relist. I'd probably never burn a blu-ray, and there are "new" (old but unused) 12.7mm burners on ebay for less. I have had 2 optical drives die so use definitely matters.
  4. Looking to part out a P157SM

    Yeah the HDD/SSD drive caddy would be good to have and I see you listed it. Mainly I want the optical drive bezel. The P150EM bezel does not match at all. The bracket for the single screw to hold the drive in would be helpful as well, although I could make that out of copper flashing. And hell, my optical drive is getting flaky, so the whole optical drive would be nice if you're willing to part with it, especially if it can read blu-ray. idk if you want to relist the caddy with the other parts included or just make another listing, so I've held off buying it for now.
  5. Looking to part out a P157SM

    If you put them up on ebay I will 100% buy them if they're cheap enough. Also this is the link to TI's page if you want to use that: https://www.techinferno.com/index.php?/classifieds/category/2-notebooks-and-components/
  6. Looking to part out a P157SM

    Do you still have the battery and optical drive caddy? I picked up a P157SM-A frame and have everything but those. The battery doesn't need to work. I just need the shell. As for the optical drive all I really need is the bezel, but the fully caddy would be nice to secure the SSD.
  7. Does my m17x R4 meet the 980M requirements?

    The 980m does draw more power than the 7970m, probably around 50% more. The 7970m draws no where near 100W, while a 980m really will draw 100W. Doesn't the m17x R4 already come with a 240W power supply? You should be fine as long as you don't raise the 980m's power limit. Manually updating drivers means you need to change a setup file for the driver which says that installing a driver for your GPU/laptop combination is OK. Since your laptop was never released with the 980m Nvidia does not have it in the list of approved combinations. The modification is easy to do. J95 wrote a guide on how to do the modification here:
  8. Meset only enables flashing the ME FW. You can flash the bios without running meset. Have you tried just flashing the bios?
  9. GK104 and GM204 share the same BGA so physically a 980 core would be compatible, but constructing a vBIOS for the card would probably be impossible. A gtx 770 core should work. You may lose LVDS display output though.
  10. Clevo P150EM - Battery Cell Upgrade Success

    Where do you see $50? The lowest I see is mid $80s. At the time it was difficult to find anything under $100.
  11. P170hm unstable gpu on factory clocks

    The 580m has 4 weak power phases that are barely adequate for the card. You may have lost one or 2, which is why it's ok when underclocked, but not at stock. Unfortunately it's difficult to test if they're working right.
  12. Heatsink upgrade for P170EM

    Thinking back, the 8970m heatsink is actually the very best. The 980m heatsink is missing part of the radiator over top of the memory/VR heatpipe, while the 8970m heatsink is not.
  13. Heatsink upgrade for P170EM

    The problem with the original heatsink was it came with dual 5mm heatpipes. The 980m heatsink comes with dual 6mm heatpipes. In addition, the core radiator is 4mm thicker on the 98m heatsink vs the 680m heatsink. The extra thickness on the 780m heatsink is mostly wasted because there is no heatpipe going through the back part of the heatsink. The 780m heatsink would probably be fine for you. I don't like it because I always overvolt memory, so I need better memory cooling. The 980m would also blow FETs, which are cooled similarly to memory, so it needed better memory/power supply cooling than the 780m. Most of the heat on the memory heatsink mostly comes from the power supply circuits (power FETs, inductors), not the memory, and the 1060 uses less power than the 780m, and far less than the 980m, so it won't need nearly as much power supply circuit cooling as the 980m.
  14. Heatsink upgrade for P170EM

    I think the P150SM has the 780m heatink. The P150SM-A would have the 980m heatsink. The 780m heatsink is a single piece with one radiator. The 980m heatsink is two separate heatsinks with two radiators.
  15. Heatsink upgrade for P170EM

    You want option 1 for the 980m heatsink. The 780m heatsink has poor memory cooling.
