    hey all, I recently ordered a clevo w230st, but when I turn on the computer the bios shows GTX 760...although it suppose to come with GTX 765.
    My bios version is 1.00.05RPr, is this normal or something wrong with the laptop?

    Anyone experience slow down on 3DMark Fire Strike Graphics Test 2?
    Looking at the sensors, my GPU seems to be running at a low core clock speed, and fluctuating.

    How bout you HTWingNut?
    This could explain why you're not seeing much improvements on the 3DMark test even after OVed & OCed, just like mine.

    Update :
    I think I may know what's the culprit. It's the power limit of the GPU.
    This even happens on Stock-Voltage.
    But the result is much worse on OV GPU, even on the same clock settings.

    I see it peaking at 1240MHz GPU but I'm only getting about 200 points higher in Fire Strike vs stock.

    But you may be on to something. I'm using my modded 240W PSU too so I know power to the laptop can't be an issue. But if there is a power limit on the GPU then it can only go so fast. I may start messing with the "sweet spot" between GPU voltage and speed. It may not be best to crank the voltage all the way up to get best performance.

    Assistant from other BIOS MODder.
    A donation to them might also help. ;)

    Good to know that yours is running at full speed on your 240W PSU.

    Please do share with us later, once you discovered that "sweet spot". :)

    So, what's your highest score on Fire Strike? 33xx-34xx graphics score?
    I can only get as far as 3183 on graphics score. But that is on non-ov. My ov scores sucks.

    Hello m8s,

    Im new in this forum and im thinking in buying the w230st, but i read in some places that the sound is really bad. I had a Toshiba satellite A300-202 before the motherboard burn :( but the speakers harman kardon was great, can some one that have the Clevo w230st give-me some feedback about the speakers sound of the laptop please?
    Thanks All!

    I donate often when I can, and when the stuff is actually available for free, if not it's called "to buy" something, not donate ;)
    Is it private or just isn't released yet ? Who are we talking of, svl7, prema, someone else ?
