    Hi there!

    I’m trying to find out more if a unlocked bios will even be worth it for my system.

    Specs:
    I7 4940mx
    GTX 980m 8gb
    32gb 1600mhz ram
    1tb msata
    1tb Samsung 860qvo
    2tb seagate HDD
    230w psu
    60hz matte FHD

    Hardware mods:
    4pipe cpu copper heatsink
    5 pipe GPU copper heatsink

    Currently on the newest version windows 10
    And on bios A17.

    I have plans to swap from the 60hz to the 120hz display in the future, I also was curious as to what benefits I’ll get in controlling my CPU voltages in the bios with a unlocked bios if anything at all?

    Would like to tone down this CPU, not experiencing throttling but for more of a enjoyable experience.

    What are the big changes From a Dell bios to the unlocked one?

    Which bios would be best for me?

    If there is a post that can answer these for me please link me to it because I haven’t found what I’m looking for, or what I think I should be looking for.

    There is a thread that already details this in this subforum. Can't link on mobile. Titled 4930mx overclocking guide or something akin to that.
