    Cool, I really appreciate that you did test the BIOS, as I can't actually.
    (I'm testing stuff directly on the BIOS chip with a programmer)

    Can you gimme more info about the driver thing. Intel/NVIDIA? (error message?)
    I did not change anything about graphics VBIOS since v1.0.1.

    Preparing the new motherboard, everything went smoothly so far, this time I didn't broke any pads while desoldering the BIOS.

    Now the best moment; hack time :D.

    i have installed the lastes Intel HD Driver who comes after clean install over MS Update.
    everytime i install also the latest nvidia Driver for this Card. i overclock with afterburner.
    it works all perfect. no Driver Problems.

    Nop, the project is not closed, I just needed to fix some problems and will reupload the whole thing as 1.0.0 (containing all latest changes).

    But when I started the project on GitHub, I forgot to tag each version (that was my bad).

    The project is back, cleaned and re-released as v1.0.0 (now using tag as well).

    You can star it back on GitHub.

    Hi @Thiblizz . How're you doing? Thanks for your work on this BIOS. FPS is low on games because I can't game at Stock GPU speeds (672MHz/900Mhz), else it crashes. I've to downclock to (522MHz/700MHz) before it becomes stable. I theorize that the issue is with the voltage (0.85v) being low to work with stock speeds. Could you please make a test version with 0.90v/0.92v/0.95v for me to test further? Or if its going to be a problem, could you please guide me on ho to make those changes myself? Thanks...

    Hey, I'm fine thanks.

    Have you tried the stock BIOS? (to see if that improve the stability)

    PS: Both Stock edition and Undervolted edition are modded, I'm not supporting Dell's official BIOS in anyway, as it represents some privacy problem for me.

    0.95v for 3D profile is actually really high.

    So the stock bios is also modded? Didn't know that... Thanks. Also, I'm using the GT540M version. I'll test the stock bios right away then... :)
