    Do you have a md5 or checksum for the file?

    Kind of a good habit for sensitive data like this.

    Thanks for sharing

    V22 uses less voltage for the same clocks and / or same voltage for maybe 100-200nhz more overclock.

    Thanks for sharing the updated A16 with v22 but did you keep all the changes that brother @javers did for the BIOS mod A14+ ? Because it helps a lot as the defaults are crucial & as TheReciever mentioned, better to have the MD5/SHA as well :)

    Thanks for the info, I will flash unlocked only when I have a spare machine / upgrade to Pascal Quadro P5xxx / GTX 1070. I have some plans for this machine and since 2020 is coming fast (Win7+BIOS EOL) & I have to decide on Clevo Prema beast (Win7 + sBIOS) or a desktop :p :cool:

    EDIT : I see different checksums for the zip file..
    EDIT 2 : Updated the #2 post to reflect the new BIOS.

    So... Is this thread for the 17 R5 owners as well? The first posts only talk about R1...

    If it was possible to undervolt my R5 from BIOS it would be awesome as heck!

    It is.

    The name is determined by which the laptop is purchased from. Its also know as the P18E in some places. Blame Dellienware, not the OP.

    edit: ok, it is not... is it de uv02?
