    I managed to buy a Win 7 version S series and its current BIOS is R0140C5.
    You can directly flash a MODded BIOS version R0142C5 without flashing to stock first.

    Thanks for this! I have the S15 running this mod at 850. Very nice improvement in BL2.

    This laptop switched me off my Mac habit. The screen is so gorgeous!

    Amal77, thanks for your work, I am liking the 1000/1000 version of you modded BIOS! I was wondering if you were working on any versions with a higher core clock rate, either with or without overvolting. Perhaps 1025/1000, 1050/1000, all the way up to 1100/1000 or anything in between. I was able to run some games at 1000/1100 without any issues, and my gpu temps peaked around 70 Celsius.

    You are very lucky to hit that stable. I could do 1000/1000 but I decided to pull back to 900 all. There is no over volting and I doubt you can get 1100 without ov.

    Strangely, when I was only able to OC to 540mhz with the stock bios, i was still able to overclock to around 1030 to 1070 memory stable, depending on the game. Now that the core clock is higher, 1100 mem has been even more stable on civ5, playing on a lategame save (year 2025) with TONS of units and cities (going for military win), max settings. Civ5 finally forced closed after an hour of solid performance. Didn't see any artifacts while playing though.

    Amal, do you have keyboard ghosting on your s13 keyboard?

    Is it just me or the Vaio S13A suffers from keyboard ghosting horror issue. Especially Q+W+SpaceBar and Q+W+D, now this is not a problem if you play strategy games or games like Diablo 3 but if you play MMORPG or shooter games that requires you to use 3 key combination surrounding WSAD keys in the movement area then you know what i'm talking about.

    I'll give you an example, Q as strafe, W as forward and spacebar as jump, in WoW, if you have ghosting horror issue, only 2 keys will work.

    Wow I just tried your link and I didn't realize just how bad my SVS15 keyboard ghosts. I can't do Q+W+SPACE but i usually strafe with a and d, using my mouse to look around. I can only use a combination of 2 letters from the ASDW keys at a time. I don't play many shooters though. Haven't tried MMO's on this laptop very much yet, though.

    Those that come preinstalled with Windows 7 should work.
    BIOS version R0142C5.

    They're trying to secured the BIOS from hacking and modding.
    It sucks big time.

    Really sorry to hear that man.
    Let's hope other modder out there can find a way to bypass them.

    There's a possibility that it will never come out. Have tested and it seems not stable playing with voltage.
    Could be a hardware limitation thing.

    Yup, mine also does't work.
    Since I spent most of my time on an external LCD and keyboard, so I won't mind much.
