    My Clevo P170HM won't allow me to overclock so the 2960MX is running at stock clocks. Oh how i wish i could adjust that in bios.

    You can overclock the 2960MX in the HM.

    This Guide says that the P170HM BIOS can allow XTU to work in the P150HM, so you might try XTU for CPU tuning on your P170HM :)

    Yes the P170HM bios should allow overclocking via XTU without any modifications.

    Hey Guys.
    I think about getting an ASUS g751 YT (970M). Lately, news have occured that nvidia ships the new GPUs with a vbios, that locks overclocking .
    Do you have any news, if asus will ship their g series with a locked vbios (that prohibits overclock) ?

    So far, no. However, rumor has it that they've rethink-ed their intent and will allow OCing. Anyway, if you're buying point is the overclockability, then you probably should think of a Clevo desktop replacement better.

    that actually is strange. Because so far, a clevo laptop (sold by schenker germany) has had a locked vbios.
    When did you get your laptop? And do you have a OC lock?

    The Asus vbios is different to the regular kind so it's hard to say if they will use such an update.

    @hmscott : sorry for keeping you waiting, saw @ the rog forums need these pics as well.
    I didn't really try to make it look fancy or tidy, way to busy for that. At least temps are normal now. There is cooling on the controllers as well:

    There is high conductivity tape between the M.2 and the sata ssd board. The 2.5" drive fits snugly in so there isn't really a need to have it taped at all, just a small patch is enough.

    deteplete3, much nicer than the total tape coverage method :)

    It's too bad the M.2 Samsung XP941 drive doesn't seem to have an accessible temperature sensor, so we don't know what the temp is on the M.2 board.

    There are still optimizations to reduce contact, improve air flow, I will mention the first one that comes to mind.

    Cut the high conductivity tape into strips and only put 2 strips, one on each side (stacked for height?) of the row of chips on the M.2 to support the 2.5" SSD coming into contact. If that holds the cards apart, some air flow can get in there and cool between the boards.

    How are the connectors holding up? When held in place do the boards go in perpendicular, or are the boards angled slightly up/down?

    joshindaphils posted another way of doing this in the ROG forums, it works with short 2.5" drive internals - pull the SSD board out from the 2.5" case and the 250GB Samsung 850 Evo will fit between the M.2 and the 2.5" socket when plugged in. Unfortunately the 512GB and 1TB boards are too long, but they can cross the M.2 just as in your photo's.
