  1. Hi, I have an XMG u705 with the an í7 4790k, a Geforce GTX 980M 8GB, G-Sync Monitor, 32GB DDR3 RAM, etc. and I am damn annoyed by both the Mainboard Bios and Vbios, because both are the cause for a ton of driver issues under Windows 10. Also I can't use my lately bought Samsung 970 Evo, even though technically there should be nothing preventing it. Heck I was even able to install Windows 10 on it, because the Windows 10 installer detected it, just not the Bios which is logically why I cannot boot from it. -.- So in search of a solution, I searched the web and found out that there are several mods for both bios made by devs like Prema. Unfortunately some Bios mods I found are heavily outdated, unfinished, ... or not anywhere secure and I couldn't find any location where I could download Prema's Mods for this device, especially not on his Site (just a Subscribe banner there) or his older Wordpress site (errors). There is also nothing here under Downloads/Clevo/P77xZM. I would be really thankfull if someone could help me.
  2. First I want to thank the community, who have inspired me to do this project. I will give you guys the chance to follow me on this journey. I hope you will all help me come up with ideas, techniques and parts that could become handy. This modding may be possible to convert to allot of laptops. Let's begin! Here is the measurement of the went hole. 77mm X 16mm I have 2 ideas for what can be done.
  3. m18xR1 Modded Bios.rar

    Version A05-v2.1

    25 downloads

    Hey Everyone, I am attaching a COUPLE of BIOS's to be flashed on the m18xR1 - This one is based off of SVL7's unlocked bios. I've updated SEVERAL items on it. **WARNING: PLEASE NOTE THAT YOUR INTEL ME(Intel Management Engine) MUST BE THE ORIGINAL. If' you've updated, please make sure you downgrade back to stock Intel ME! Bios Updates: 1) UNLOCKED BIOS 2) Intel RST v13.5.0 (Understand that this MIGHT NOT work with RAID. It should, but some people had trouble - you can downgrade to the v12 that I've poasted it you have any trouble!) 3) CPU Micro Code has been updated 4) NIC Firmware 5) Video Bios (On-Board) 6) M.2 Support (Through an adapter - but adapter will be recognized) 7) there are SEVERAL other updates but I just can't remember them all, lOl! (Sorry) Version A05-v2.0 is probably better as it is the most stable. I'd SERIOUSLY suggest using that version. IF you want to use this, just understand it MIGHT cause you trouble with RAID... (It worked for some, and didn't work for others) Enjoy!!! Swick (On a side note - if ANYONE is willing, I MIGHT know how to get legacy to work on 800m+ video cards. But I need GOOD testers that know how to recovery flash and POTENTIALLY use SPI programmers in case of bad flash)! PM me if interested)

  4. I just bought this laptop and im using it for gaming, 1366x768 is its default resolution and i just think it does pretty well! Model specs:: Acer Aspire F15 F5-573g-59aj Processor: Core i5 6200u 2.3ghz with turbo boost to 2.8ghz Nvidia Geforce 940mx Gddr5 2gb dedicated vram 8gb ddr4 kingston Intel 520 graphics USB 3.1 The cpuid link is here: http://valid.x86.fr/hh1ql9 My basic questions are: 1) Why the hell the bios is so useless? how do i activate the advanced tab menu? there are no parameters to replace to adjust, only boot options and it sucks =( ( Can anyone please unlock it?) 2) where do i find a new vbios for 940mx Gddr5 ? and how to i flash it? is there an special tool like on desktops? im very used on overclocking and bios modding desktops but this is my first laptop and i want to start with it! 3) i usually use ubu (unified bios updater) to update bios modules from my desktop uefi bios including micro code...is it possible with notebooks? Thanks alot
  5. Need Help Flashing Second GPU

    Hey guys just bought a Lenovo Y510P about 2 weeks ago and I still haven't been able to enjoy it without getting a fire extinguisher ready So I have been reading about its faults and what I can do to help ease them. So far it's been a education. I have the 3.05 mod bios, spring mod, new thermal pads, paste and cut holes for the fans. The thing I am trying to figure out is I can see if gpu-z that one of my GPUS have the [MODDED] next where is says the bios version. Can't distinguish weather its the built in GPU or ultra bay. My money is on the one thats built in. So with that said (might get corrected) but lets say all thats left is to flash and mod the bios on the ultra bay gpu. When I try to save my bios in GPU-Z I get an error with some research its a mobile gpu and thus wont save my bios. I am a little confused on the instructions on how to flash that gpu's bios and what steps I need to take in order to under-volt them. I am able to under-volt one of them assuming its the one that says modded next to it. I am a complete noob when it comes to this stuff but charting into unknown territory is well...lets just say challenging. If someone can please give me a detailed guide on what do to I would really appreciate it. Thanks. Joe.
  6. Hello everyone! I'm new here. I recently bought a GE62 6QF and I want to play a bit with it. I always had a passion for hardware and Overclocking, but I never tried overclocking a laptop! I started some reading here and there about OC best practices for laptops and for this one in particular. The dGPU in this laptop is a Gtx 970m 3gb, with a stock vbios version 84.04.91.00.0E. By default, as probably everyone of you know, the Core overclock is limited to +135mhz, and the memory to +1000mhz. At the moment I reached a stable situation with +135/+496, but the temperature never goes over 65°C with maximum fan speed. What I would like to do is to push a bit further these values. I saw some interesting vbios for similar gpus uploaded here, but unfortunately i cannot download them yet, so I would like to start a discussion about vbios modification. I downloaded MaxwellBiosTweaker and i would like to know if someone have some suggestions. What i want to do first is to set the default clock to 1059MHz and Memory to 1501MHz since the gpu is very stable with this setting. Second i want to remove the core clock limit of +135mhz. Probably also the voltage must be increased a bit. Here you can see my current settings Do you think I can just apply these values in MaxwellBiosTweaker like in the following screen? Since now is working without any voltage change I modified only the clocks as you can see from the screenshot Attached you can also find the original vbios file. Suggestions? Thanks vbios.rom
  7. Hey guys i need help to unlock the +135mhz limitation of my gtx 850m. Klem can u help me? here my VBIOS: https://mega.nz/#!J8cw0aLS!bLGu7R294W7wU52RDgTCvJIeBBF9jxrr066y7JpSg3o PLS POST IN A LINK LIKE MEGA.NZ BECOUSE I DON'T HAVE THE 5 POST! THX
  8. So here is my current setup: Alienware M17X R4 Bios A12 GPU: Nvidia 660M CPU: Intel i7 3630QM HHD - Samsung 840 EVO SSD 250GB and stock Toshiba 500GB Ram - cardboard 8gb OS- Windows 7 I did get the upgraded power supply BTW So I just ordered a 980m and wanted to get some tips on how to install this bad boy. I know I probally have to flash my bios and install some modified drivers but I have no Idea where to start. I am kind of a noob with this. The physical install seems easy I just dont know about the software side. If someone could please help me out on how to install the bios and drivers I would greatly appreciate it.
  9. Hello all, I just wonder if someone could take a look at a bios to know if it's possible to unlock it? a Dell Alienware Area51 R2 model : file name: Alienware_Area_51_R2_A08.exe Link here Thanks a lot Pas
  10. Hey Everyone, I'm looking for some testers to see if we can get LEGACY SUPPORT for the m17xR4. Furthermore, I've also done MANY updates on this bios, too... I updated RAID (EFI & LEGACY) to v12.9.0.2006 (This may need to be downgraded as the chipset you have may NOT support this raid version, but this is the latest version that will work IF youre running RAID. It also supports TRIM in RAID0. If you are not running raid, I can update to v13 if you want, but we need to test one at a time!) Updated GOP Drivers & GOP Policy Updated vbios from 2098 to 2171 Updated Microcode for all cpu's Added M.2 Support Added NvMe support Updated Atheros Lan Firmware & PXE Boot Firmware Updated To Possibly Give Legacy Support, BUT....... I NEED TESTERS!!! Please contact me if you want to try. Understand, HOWEVER, that am NOT responsible for ANYTHING that happens to your system if it goes wrong. (Just a SMALL disclaimer, heh) Thanks, Swick
  11. [HARDWARE MOD] P157SM cooling overhaul

    Over the last month or so, I've been planning on overhauling my (slightly dated) P157SM to give it better cooling, and possibly higher performance. There were a number of sources I used for inspiration, and I'll attempt to document all of them later on, but first, pictures! This is the first modification I made. I increased the opening of the CPU fan to allow more air to go into the fan. As I recall, it helped with idle temperatures but I don't remember by how much. This picture shows how much I increased the opening by, I didn't do just that bit and stop Next up, I increased the width of the intakes directly over the GPU and CPU to reduce ambient heat buildup in those areas. I ultimately decided that increasing the width was not the best route to go (and it was quite ugly) so I decided to simply remove the vents I used some diamond mesh to cover those areas, but I don't have any pictures of that at the moment. Next I used some HVAC tape to direct the air flow from the CPU fan into the heatsink and not out the tiny gaps in the area. Then I swapped out the heatsinks (originally I ordered this from XoticPC and went with their copper cooling upgrade (I was young(er)) for some bigger ones. Everything is all nice and snug And finally with the lid back on. With the changes made between cutting the vents, and the last picture, I was able to drop load CPU temps ~5C which I thought was pretty nice. My goal is to also get rid of the vent over the fan, but I haven't found time to do it. I'm also planning on lapping the GPU heatsink, which will, again, take time. I'll post more updates as I make them (and post the benchmarks I've already done). Update: GPU Work: So I have a 780M at the moment (I'm planning on going to a 980M, though I may just wait for the Pascal GPU's to come out) and I decided to lap the heatsink, since I'm planning on overclocking it. Fresh of the block 400 Grit (10 minutes) 600 Grit (10 minutes) 800 Grit (10 minutes) 1000 grit (7 Minutes) 1200 Grit (7 Minutes) 1500 grit (about 25 minutes for this stage) And I thought it looked pretty smooth. One of my references mentioned cutting off the little tabs on the block, since they're mostly there for adding additional pressure (since the plate is usually warped) and I wanted to just lap the area directly over the GPU die (plus I don't really have a good place for grinding copper with my rotary tool). For the paste I used http://www.coolermaster.com/cooling/thermal-compound/mastergel-maker/ which I went with based on the favorable review posted at http://www.play3r.net/reviews/cooling/cooler-master-master-gel-maker-nano-thermal-paste-performance/ and the pads are Fujipoly high end (didn't think I'd need to go ultra). I also added some little sinks on to the heatpipes, though they might be suspect (more on that in the results below). And I sealed up a gap in the fan to direct more airflow through the larger fins. I also used from more HVAC tape to try to prevent ambient air from being drawn in to the fans, but this too might be suspect (it might be needed to draw it away, since where else is the heat from all those fins supposed to go?) And the results are... interesting... pre upgrade post upgrade So the initial benchmark had a 5C drop in temperature, but the following results aren't as promising. In fact, the stress test results appears to be higher (I'm speculating that it'd be over 86C by 400 seconds). I'm thinking that either the added heatsinks on the heatpipes are dispersing the heat before it can get to the fins, my lapping job wasn't so great, or I added too much TIM. I may try the washer trick from the p150 cooling threat mentioned below, but I'm spent on energy for this weekend. June 3rd update I finally got back around to working on my clevo some more and after a third re-pasting my temps are down (taking into account that today is hotter than when I first tested) I suspect that my older paste jobs were either too thick, or I bent the heatpipe and kinda threw the plate out of alignment.

  20. Hi there! I - by chance - got hold of an Gigabyte P34w V4. As this small notebook is really getting hot, I am looking for a vBios modification with the goal to undervolt the 970m. Thank you and best regards phila

  22. Lenovo Y400/Y500 fan mod.

    My Y400 ran into some trouble a while back and still isn't fixed but I won't tell what happened to it here as I will post it on a new thread. Simply put, I had to mod the laptop fan so that it would run at 100% speed no matter what. It made the fan run louder but made my temps considerably lower. This is a post to show you how I did the mod. 1. Open up the bottom cover of your Y400 or Y500 2. Locate the cables for the fan. 3. There should be four cables there. One red, one black, one yellow and one brown. 4. Cut the brown wire. The brown wire is for the motherboard to control the fan speed. Once you cut it your laptop fan will run as fast as the dust cleaning process lets it in lenovo's energy management tool. This is the fan's normal speed. It was made to run slower by lenovo to make less noise. I got the image above from this thread: http://forum.techinferno.com/lenovo-ibm/2773-y500-disassembled-pictures.html It shows roughly where the cables should be for the Y400 and Y500.

  24. HP Split 13 x2 any Mod ideas?

    Hi @all, I have the HP Split 13 x2 (now with 8gig of ram and the i5-4200y). Apart from SSD, RAM, WiFi, is there anything that I could tune/mod/change to make it run faster? For example new coolers, better fan and with that an unlocked BIOS (no unlocked Bios -> no more power possible out of the small i5 ;-) ) Or even better a incredible cheap i7y ^^ Or something I didn't even think of. (What comes to mind is a different dock with more connection options or a new metal backplate) Please leave your comments, even if it is just to get me some ideas, something you already did or things you could help me with. Kind regards, Hermelinmaster

I'm an architecture student going into College and I've been informed by my professors that I need to purchase a Quadro graphics card in order to run the hardware acceleration in the drafting programs we use. To me, this doesn't make any sense; why would I downgrade my already powerful GTX 780ti's (in three way SLI: overkill? Yes, I'm aware. But why the hell not?) for something not nearly as powerful, the Quadro 5000, and spend over $1000 on one graphics card? I've been reading about ways to crack the 660 into working, or at least reading, like a Workstation card, but is there a way to do it on something as recent as the 780ti? I'd still like to be able to retain the gaming capabilities of my PC but also, you know, succeed in college and not spend a fortune on another graphics card when I have 3 perfectly good ones in my machine already?
