  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. 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.
  8. 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?
  9. Could you share with us when was your laptop manufactured? Maybe it is a specific motherboard batch that had issues.
  10. any set of ram would be plug and play. If it says 1600 it will @ 1600 etc. what's your CPU?
  11. 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.

  13. OK... that's your issue This a QM77 chipset that has only 2 SATA III ports (hdd slot and odd). Any other port you connect will be SATA II only... You can connect the Toshiba internally and check that it will utilise full SATA III speeds... e-sata ports on both the laptop and the dock are SATA II
  14. I suppose that any of these keyboard will work. I think that I have seen the blue buttoned E6440 keyboard (not the E6430u) to work great on the E6430, but haven't tested my self. I am sure though that the other one with the pointer will work on ANY E6430 even if your original laptop won't have a pointer. No it is not... You are supposed to see full sata III speeds... Could you elaborate on the SSD (model etc.)? There is probably no way to go higher than 4x40 with that chip... Did you test on another laptop and you got higher than that? What PSU you are using? It is possible that you need an 90W or even better an 130W PSU. This is an ES chip and I don't know its limits. My stock 3720QM is locked and won't go over 1C x40 2C x39 3C/4C x38... If you have a powerful enough PSU your problem is probably that there is not enough voltage, but on the E6x30 there is no way (that I have found) other than hardware mod to overvolt or undervolt the CPU. Also, Intel XTU multiplier slider will only activate if you set the UEFI variables. On any other occasion they will be stuck to the stock multipliers. Suggestions to push further: - enable BCLK OCing. This will probably push the 4C 4GHz limit a little further and will also slightly OC RAM frequency etc. - set a more flexible 1C x42 2C x41 3C/4C x40 for better single/dual core performance.
  15. Could you share with us your build to add it on the first page? Yes you can. Also if you could share your build when you complete it.
  16. You can't OC Turbo values through XTU. You have to use the UEFI variables as described here.
  17. First of all I am positive that you don't have to pay a fortune a for an 2C i7 just to be able to run the iGPU @ 1.3GHz. I think that you can easily OC your iGPU using UEFI variables with a $15 2C i5. No need to tweak anything in the OS so it doesn't matter if you have OSX or Windows. The same goes for i7 QC OC if you buy any of the i7-37X0QM or i7-38X0QM. Check the results here. - Your laptop was designed for 35W 2C cpus but as you can see on the 1st page there are users that upgraded their iGPU E6430 with QC i7. The performance gain is stuggering compared to a 2C i7. - Yeap, stock keyboard and backlit keyboard are interchangeable. You can also use the E6440 keyboard with blue fn buttons if you like. - No, there is no 14" Full HD LVDS screen. Highest resolution is 1600x900. Keep in mind that if your laptop came with an 768p screen you will probably have to switch the screen cable too.
  18. If iGPU is enabled you should see it under Display adapters as Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000
  19. never done it before but you can check that disassemble video for the 6560b. It is pretty much the same. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qzwT21jcCLY After 10:00 you can fast forward to 14:00 to check how to disassable the screen compartment.
  20. Yes it is normal. Paperclip is only applied when you boot. If you have modified your flash descriptor as described you don't need it anymore.
  21. setup var command is permanent but needs a cold boot (shutdown and startup) in order to work properly. No need to change TOLUD size. I will change automatically if needed.
  22. ok. Your connection is x1.2 meaning that you will benefit if have the iGPU enabled. Do you have an iGPU/dGPU model or iGPU only? If you have the dGPU model do you have Optimus enabled? You can OC your i5 using BCLK OC for almost 5% @ maximum of 3.6GHz ... no unlocked multipliers on any dual cores...
