Clevo P170SM upgrading.


Recommended Posts

Hi guys. I have a Clevo P170sm which come with a gtx 770m and now the time has come to put in a 780m. I have done some research into this and I installed the latest Prema bios mod. Thats all the preparation i done. I have thermal pads in the post.

Now, the 780m I got is this one from

New Nvidia GeForce GTX 780M 4GB DDR5 MXM 3.0 Type B for Clevo Alienware | eBay

Is there someone else out there who has done the same thing? Will i need special drivers or will i have to flash the graphics card now?

Thanks in advance. Tom.

For those who have just seen this.

I installed the card, using the existing thermal pads as they were comparable.

I didn't even uninstall the old nvida driver. I just had to reboot once.

I did have to remove the old piece of metal on the back of the card that pulls the heatsink down and it was done carefully with a screw driver and a heat gun. take your time.

so all you need to do this is the prema mod bios!

normally, you dont need mod bios for upgrade to gtx 780m and the heatsink is the same, only themo pads you must fit exactly.
