Can I upgrade my GT60 Barebones (16F4) GPU from 970m to 1070?

Recommended Posts

 

Does anyone have experience with this?

Some threads I've seen have done it on a 17 inch laptop, I was wondering if it was possible on the 15 inch version as well.

What issues will I face? I read about having to have a custom BIOS and vBIOS..but also HDMI/audio issues.

I guess I should also upgrade my CPU, which runs really hot (i7 4800MQ), but not sure another Haswell chip will run any cooler.

I've used liquid metal and even that hasn't changed temperatures much, it still reaches 93C pretty easily.

      For both, 4Gb and 8Gb card.
      1. Unlocked Nvidia core limit +135 MHz.
      2. Unlocked Power Limit.
      3. Unlocked Power adjustment by software (for example with Nvidia Inspector).
      4. Increased Power Limit and Power Target.
      5. Enabled some additional tweaks.

      Could anyone tell me the best overclock that I could use on this GPU?

      I have a p150sm which has a seemingly dead 780m due to a perpetual error 43 which came after a big BSOD about 6 months ago. I upgraded the laptop to a 980m and modded the inf files. The upgrade was perfectly fine for a week. One day, i left the laptop and something related to sleep or power may have caused the laptop to shut off. Since then, the laptop with the 980m won't boot. I tried many things like resetting cmos, taking out the hardware and putting it back in, and resetting bios, and buying a 230W adapter. Nothing worked. The laptop works fine with the old dead 780m in there, but now when the 980m is in there, holding the power button generates a green light flash and then the power LED goes back to orange. No sounds, maybe one tick, and that's it. What is left to try?
