    Hello prema

    I will be very grateful if you can put together some sort of guide on how to install the bios and ec files, I need to know which files to launch in which folder and what I am doing wrong that I get a 'cannot open file' error message when launching ecflash.bat in ec1 folder

    Many thanks

    Hi @Prema, I was looking for a solution everywhere, but I could not solve my problem: my notebook Clevo W170ER does not see the whole new RAM (8GB from 16GB). Bios PremaMod-1.02.16PMv3. Could you suggest a solution and give a link to the latest BIOS version for my laptop? Thank!

    Hi, folks I just brought in Ebay an used EUROCOM Sky X9E2 aka P870DM2_DM3 in perfect condition and I want to extract the maximum performance as possible for this notebook.
    Specs:
    i7-6700K (will be replaced for a delided 7700K)
    Single Nvidia GTX 1080 (no plans for SLI)
    16GB GSkill memory 2400MHZ

    Is it recommended to find an unlocked Bios for CPU overclock? A delided 7700K CPU will help to maintain the temperature to an overclock about 5.0GHz? Is there available any mobile GTX 1080 moded vBios?

    Thanks.

    About 2100$. So this isn't a good gamer laptop after all, what a waste.I sold my old M18X-R2 to get this one. I hoped an unlocked sBIOS like Prema's could help extract some juice from it. But thanks anyway.

    Isn't the heat sink / cooling system on the KM1 a lot different than the DM2/DM3? @Papusan and @Mr. Fox, don't you both have hands on experience with the DM2/DM3? Can you help out @Tulius out with the question regarding CPU and experience with cooling?

    I have owned the M17xR2, M18xR1, M18xR2, AW18 and the P870DM/DM3 were both better products. I did not have as many thermal management challenges with them as I did with the Alienware systems. However, Clevo does have kind of a heat sink lottery. If you get one that is badly overheating after a delid, it has a defective heat sink and it needs to be replaced. I have needed to use AC cooling for overclocking ALL laptops. None run cool enough for heavy overclocking using their native cooling alone. None of them I owned had overheating issues running stock or with a modest overclock and undervolted.

    The KM1 cooling system is different and doesn't seem as good as the DM2/3. The TM1 seems to have the best for the CPU. I have never owned a KM1 or TM1. I think all of them have better cooling than the original P870DM-G.

    The EVOC P870DM3 was my favorite laptop out of all that I have ever owned. I loved the M18xR2, but not as much as I did the P870DM3. The only thing better about the Alienwares was their anodized aluminum chassis.

    I researched all over the topic and found a tutorial from user un1tyNL (pag.435) which helped a lot. Thank you friend.

    I'm looking at buying this - https://www.pcspecialist.co.uk/notebooks/octaneVI-17/

    Which Clevo model is it?

    And I had a look at the old Premamod website that you used to be able to down load BIOSes from and it is no more.

    How does one go about acquiring Premamods these days?

    Cheers.
