  1. This thread could be in Portuguese Any luck @brruno?
  2. Depending on your current CPU, a Xeon can be a very good upgrade on the cheap. Check the list of possible compatible CPUs here. Maybe not all CPUs on that list are compatible, but if you already have a PremaMod Bios installed probably they all work.
  3. Only Clevo (not thin and light) ones. The rest is soldered.
  4. They are both soldered, you can't change the CPU.
  5. Yep. But I can't help you there I have no idea how to mod driver inf. But I think some people here might help
  6. @D2ultima It seems that after pulling 255w (max) from the wall and a 1.2v aplied on my 970M the whole system said enough is enough and started beeping and flashing the led lights all over the place Got a 8500 score, but that was about it. It was fun to push the system to it's limit, but now I'll be back to what I like to do most on laptops. Undervolt and reduce energy consumption without a hit on performance
  7. I already bought a Asus ADP-180MB F charger to use as my "on the go" charger (it's lighter and smaller than the original). I'm not planing on spending more money And you are right, probably can pull 200w from the wall without much trouble, will try it today. Is there a safe voltage maximum for Maxwell cards?
  8. I'm gonna try to reach 9000 points EDIT: I think I'm hitting a limit on the power adaptor (measured 188w pull from the wall, I have a 180w adaptor) and the GPU probably can go further without another bump in voltage. Well, it was fun, but it's 2:30 AM and I need to go to sleep Thanks @Prema for his lovely BIOS and vBIOS
  9. It seems a driver/hardware problem. But check these two options first: - Card temperature. - If you can, grab a monitoring socket tool to check if the power supply is sufficient. From what I could check, most laptops with the 880M came with a 180w power adaptor, so a 210w should be sufficient.
  10. So, not a problem But it could be stated on the forum rules.
  11. There is a bit of an issue with the private messages. I could not find anything in the rules that limit a pre-promotional user to send PMs. Even so I wasn't able to sent PMs to @Prema (I only tried with him) in the pre-promotional period. Another issue is that the interface gives you a generic error instead of informing you that you are still in pre-promotion period (if this is a real limitation and I've missed it when I read the rules)
  12. Hi, Hélder from Portugal. I've been following this forum for a while, finally tough I could contribute a thing or two. Thanks for this space, it really stands out from other communities
  13. Probably you can't change the GPU. Do you have the product links for both models? I'm starting to think that the AMD GPU is probably worse than the M1000M Quadro.
  14. TL;DR: Get the first one, change the screen later. I'm assuming some things here. That the GPUs on both models are soldered, so changing GPU would be impossible or if they are not, changing to a new GPU is rather complicated and sometimes impossible to do. Both models are similar regarding the screen (size, mounting holes, interface, etc.) making them compatible. Meaning you can just find what is the model number of the best screen and replace it in the V1Q02UTABA model. Just be sure that the panels are compatible.
  15. Oh, ok. I'm not sure if the height. Measured with a iFixit ruler it says 1mm, but the 1mm fells thinner next to the original ones. I'll wait for someone of the technical department of the retailers present in the forum to say something. I already contacted @John Keel to see if he can confirm the height of the pads.
