    Dear Strike:

    Do we have solution to modify the bios on Ranger so that it won't do throttle because of power limit? I have just updated mine from 770m to a msi 1070. But when I play the game, the frequency of the graphic card always drop to 500 MHZ. Thus, I am thinking whether we could have a way to disable the power limit of the mxm port

    Why yes of course we do. We have had one. But you have to use a chip programmer. That is thr easy part. The but the problem is that the power of a 100watt or higher might burn thr tracing om thr board. Or it is as simple as just upgrading the mxm slot (if you can micro-solder). I have 100 spare watts to use. on my system. I am looking for an alt way to power the gpu. Kinda of which i just got thr full fledged ome with the 12v rail connector.. otherthings to consside a major issue would be the gpu is right next to the cpu. The cpu is already heat maker. But more importantly the smd components on the mobo. We need a other exhaust port(the best solution) or a powerful fan. Adding fan in the optical drive will not help. It may short term but it will just blow hot air in places ir is not suppose to be. But that can also be solved by making a "air flow duct" using adhisive sided foam. Idk so many options. Wish I had a second unit to do it all with. My ranger is my gaming escape from the world. If yoy know what I mean

    Then its a pass. v22 is where its at for me.

    10-15 % performance is lost with the security patches and on older machines like ours thats pretty hard to stomach.
