  1. Your laptop is based on a different motherboard, with no removable CPU, etc. Most mods should work but you should investigate further.
  2. yes but that way it is easier. How did you enable this menu? Maybe there is a way to enable other menus like the core ratio one.
  3. Nicely done with iGPU. How far did you go with the iGPU OC? Unfortunately, fully unlocked multipliers come only with extreme chips (39X0XM) and partially unlocked with the upper 4C cpus (37X0QM, 38X0QM). Everything else can only take advantage of the ~5% you can achieve with the BCLK OC
  4. It would be a good idea to include your system setup in your signature. On our laptop TOLUD is set automatically if it detects an eGPU prior to boot. You could try and set it manually lower using UEFI variables to check if the problem persists. @Khenglish should quote on this, since he does have more experience in modding and reflashing BIOS parts. Personally I don't think it is a good idea. If anything goes wrong you may brick your laptop.
  5. It is variable 0x40. Disable fast boot in BIOS. Try to boot with the eGPU connected and powered prior to boot.
  6. A12 is supposed to have upgraded the Intel ME firmware management version to 8.1.30.1350 as stated here. Could you check if you can take a backup of your full BIOS using fpt? Check this thread on how to do this. Try to backup and report if it completes or if Error 26 occurs.
  7. Could you post your ME Firmware version reported in your BIOS?
  8. x2.2 would have better performance. It depends on your app/games for the loss. USB 3.0 depends on the laptop. E6430 according to the schematics supports USB 3.0 (never tried myself). Offcourse an USB 2.0 only dock won't have 3.0 support. Why would you like to upgrade your BIOS? It is possible that someone flashed a different ME version than the version that came with the A11. That's what when this happened to me. The only way to solve this is to unlock your flash descriptor and reflash the original ME version that came with the BIOS. This way it will probably upgrade. Is there a specific reason you want to upgrade to A18? Do you have any other problems with your current BIOS? No msata SSD slot available. You could maybe use an mini pci-e to m.2 port and use an m.2 pcie ssd but it won't be bootable unless you use a bootloader (eg GRUB). You could add an SSD with an ODD caddy and use your ODD externally.
  9. Using my Dell Latitude E6430 with an OCed 3720QM for video/photo editing is good enough for work on the go but the E6430 is a pretty heavy machine. I saw some great deals on the newer Latitude E5470. Would a newer E5470 with an i5 or i7-6XXXHQ processor be a worthy upgrade? Or will it be a downgrade regarding CPU performance? Thanks EDIT: 3DMark06 CPU score for the i7-6820HQ is 6866. I could see a maximum of 7847 with my i7-3720QM. Of course the 6820HQ will run cooler/less power hungry. But performance wise?
  10. Could you share with us when was your laptop manufactured? Maybe it is a specific motherboard batch that had issues.
  11. any set of ram would be plug and play. If it says 1600 it will @ 1600 etc. what's your CPU?
  12. Yes you can... you just have to use your internal mPCIe ports. You can't use EC for x 2.2 link. If you do have a mPCIe adapter for the PE4C v3.0 I can guide you how to solder the 2nd lanes signals. BTW, your cooling mod rocks.
