AMD Firepro M6100 in GT683R? (MS-16F2) (and other upgrades)

Recommended Posts

hello everyone, I have a MSI GT683R with a dying (pretty much dead actually) GTX560M in it.

 

I am looking to upgrade it to a new GPU, I have found a AMD Firepro M6100. (I first wanted to upgrade to a GTX970M, but that's too expensive for now... and corona is also making things difficult) I have already ordered a second heatsink to modify because I didn't want to modify the original heatsink it came with.

 

But, my question is. Does it even work in this system? I have heard of people getting it to work in the barebone variant of this system. But I am not sure if it would work in the 'fully loaded' variant.

 

Also, my games are mostly RAM/CPU dependent and I am looking for a little extra power in this system. I have found a I7-2860qm and I want to upgrade to 32GB of RAM, is it possible on this system? the sticker says 'max. 16GB of RAM' But I have feeling it says that due to the limitation of the cpu that's already on this system (I7-2630QM, 16GB RAM max.)

I've tried it in Gt780 - it does not boot, think the result will be the same for MSI GT683R

well, it does work... although you have to do it via VGA screen and use a unlocked BIOS to chan PCI ROM PRIORITY is set from EFI to Legacy.

 

Even though I managed to break this graphics card... it still sometimes show image, I am trying to get it to work on the internal screen

Have you tried switching to PCI Legacy on unlocked BIOS from this topic?

 

Does it help getting image on internal screen?

 

If you have these unlocked BIOSes - please send GT780 and GT683 my way :)

I didn't know there is a different unlocked BIOS, can you send it to me to try? Maybe it will help with other cards, do you have it for for only for GT683 or for GT780 as well?

 

Maybe changing Vendor ID to MSI ( 1462 ) in vBIOS would help? Do you know vBIOS editor that can change Vendor ID on GCN 2.0 (8000 series and up) AMD cards?

 

As for these BIOSes - yeah I just got promoted, downloaded a couple of BIOSes and now forum do not allow download more for some reason lol,


Funny enough I didn't got those that I was really after :)  GT683 and GT780

I think i got them, I now hope I won't get banned.

I actually founded it a bit unfair that only subscribed/promoted people could download this.
I could understand why they did it, but there are so little amount of downloads compared to the amount of views the post has gotten. so many people.. that couldn't get their hands on them

 

Here's the link, i put them in a zip. uuhhh i cannot use external links so I guess.. i have to comment multiple times?

 

I wasn't sure exactly which bios you wanted, soooo i downloaded multiple...

      i want to ask two favours and a question from this community ..
       
      1.) Can someone mod my 940 mx to increase the target temperature and allow higher overclocking than 135hzband voltage control
       
      2.) Allowing my i5 7200U to be undervolted to reduce overall heat 
       
      The question : I repasted my gpu and cpu cleaned it thoroughly, made sure twice everything is connected properly, use a cooling pad and yet the upper portion of my chasis above f1-f12 keys is so hot that i can roast peanuts on it. 
       
      (if i left out any info or missed something please reply i would really love to have a page that has everything for people who have this laptop specifically for light gaming.)

      Hi,
       
      I've recently got my hands on an M17x R4 Alienware Laptop from 2013 which I love. I've replaced the screen, keyboard, RAM, and hard drive to make it into a fully modern laptop. However, I'm currently waiting on a replacement for the 680m GPU with a 980m from ebay. My question for you all is, do I need to do anything with the BIOS to make this 980m work? Is there a way to prevent the laptop from using Intel HD Graphics with Optimus? I think the Intel HD Graphics on this laptop are currently broken as I see static-looking dots flash on the screen. (See image below for example). My theory is that because Intel HD Graphics with Optimus is still in-use while in-game, the dots are being caused by it.
       
      Thanks for any help in advance.
       
      - M
