I'm very curious to know if you plan on pushing a 1300 or more core clock with a modified vbios. Would like to know if 50 watts is enough. One useful tool for testing for throttling in real time in game is evga precision x with the on screen display. It will show your current clock rates in real time. I think if I can get enough juice to the 980m I can squeeze out 30-40 FPS at 4k. Would be great to try and use this 4k monitor! The 8gb makes it good for it. I think the desktop 980 would be quite decent for 4k if it didn't have a measly 4 gb of vram. Technically I should be able to match the 980 but have twice the vram (stock 980 vs oc 980m of course) I can't wait to get my laptop back, I might not be selling it after all if I get this to work Can you link to the adapter you used for the power jack? Your Google fu is clearly superior as my searches have returned fruitless.
