  1. Haha I was too. Maybe with a proper egpu it could’ve worked. Would have made that cpu a lot better if an egpu broke the base clock ceiling
  2. Eventually gave up on this. It was an attempt to bypass the internal graphics and hopefully overclock the cpu more. Perhaps the external gpu was too old or not compatible. Don’t really know, but I never could get it to work.
  3. With non-k Skylake Overclocking becoming more popular, I decided to see what it’s limits were. Non-k mobile Overclocking stops at 102.7 MHz bclk with the integraed graphics still enabled. My goal was to bypass this with an eGPU and see what could be done. I currently have an old Radeon HD 4450 connected through my M.2 slot on my motherboard. Only issue is, nothing seems to recognize the card. I did check to see if the M.2 supports pci lanes and it does. Gpu is being powered by a 400w psu. The Gpu fan does turn on, leading me to think that it is getting some kind of pci connection. Any help in trying to get the gpu to show up in device manager or work is greatly appreciated. More pictures of the current setup are also HERE if that helps.
  4. You would just need to flash a modified vbios. You can try and find one someone else has made, or dump your own and edit it. For flashing use nvflash, and edit the vbios with something like maxwell bios tweaked. Most of these tools are specific to your gpu architecture so be mindful of that.
  5. Overclocking is possible. No hardware mods. Microcode is not known how to manipulate currently. Not anything recent. But regardless, the microcode doesn’t have anything to do with the clock speeds. That’s all controlled by intels management engine in the bios. On a locked cpu (non k) you can overclock by raising the bclk. This won’t get you much because the bclk is also tied to the pci bus and other things. I did it successfully on a Skylake cpu. Wrote a guide HERE.
  6. Not sure what laptop this is on, but if you have a programmer, you don’t need to mess with any of that. It will over write it no problem. You will have to make sure the jumper is on the right pins how ever. This is normally laptop specific.
  7. You might have luck on eBay perhaps. It’s probably cheaper to buy a spi programmer with a chip clip tho. This will also keep you from having to try and desolder/solder the bios chip.
  8. Yes, sometimes there are two. This is more common in desktops tho. If you are flashing/dumping with FPTW use the -BIOS to dump just the bios region. (fptw -d whatever.bin -BIOS). That is if you can get to windows. Otherwise, you’ll need a spi programmer with a SOIC8 chip clip to reflash the chip. You should be able to download the bios from the manufacture’s website. Just make sure you know what regions go where.
  9. As long as temps are fine, overclock it. I see no reason not to. If that is a “locked” cpu you’ll have to modify the bios to overclock it.
  10. Not sure what all you are going after, but if you can dump the whole image, you can edit the settings with AMIBCP. Don’t know how to make settings display in the bios, but you can definitely change the settings to your liking. Guide that will help HERE.
  11. Yes, it is possible. I’m sure you’ve already fixed this but, a spi programmer with a SIOC8 chip clip will allow you to reflash the actual bios chip on the motherboard. Chip is black square with 4 pins two sides. Should have a colored dot (probably red) on it and a small dimple in one corner.
  12. You’ll have to flash a modified Vbios to achieve high overclocks. Nvidia locks them at +135Mhz if I’m not mistaking. I kind of doubt you would have issues with power, but that could very well be possible. With the graphics overclocked and the cpu at full load, you may experience power throttling. If that’s the case you might try and find a power supply from another laptop possibly. You’d just have to make sure it fits power and size wise.
  13. Not sure what all setting/whatever you are trying to change. Wrote a guide for modifying the bios HERE. Let me know if you need help or have any questions.
  14. I506dk

    Unlock TDP/TDC

    It may be an issue with the ac adapter. Might not be able to supply enough power. I think I have that issue with my cpu pulling too much. Check out my guide HERE cause I know those settings are in the bios. How high you can go is reliant on that ac adapter tho.
