    There was/is a BIOS Recovery TOOL but the link on the page is dead. I guess keep reading and good luck

    Hi,
    on this Page they make gpu overclocking, but there is nothing about the IVy Bridge Generation (3th).
    I already have a Open bios on Me Laptop that i Can use my ddr3 2133MHZ normal only 1300mhz work.
    I also connect a gtx1070 to my laptop with mpci.
    And i Upgrade the cooling 2 extra Fans and more heatpipes.

    My next Step is upgrading the cpu to an i7 3940xm but i dont find the Solution.

    Interesting. I'm from Germany. Got my L502X since 2012 but since then bought
    several used 3D L702X and L502x, some upgraded and then sell some just sell
    and making some extra bucks ;)

    @temho

    To my knowledge its not yet possible to upgrade to ivy bridge processors
    The best sandy bridge is 2860QM but you could try to use 2960XM BUT
    you need best possible cooling with conductonaut paste, because it has
    55W instead of 45W like the 2860QM has. I also want to try
    this... but the performance difference between the two is little
    and it still costs 150$... the 2860QM only 88$ in China...

    I hope someone will update the Intel ME to 8.0. Then it will be possible
    to use ivy bridge processors.

    5,2GHZ Overclocking world record.... OMG

    https://hwbot.org/hardware/processor/core_i7_2960xm/

    no i REALLY want to try the 2960XM
    with normal paste it would not be a good idea
    because of throttling BUT with conductonaut metal paste
    my fan hardy goes to half speed with my 2860QM
    I think i could use the 2960XM even with some overclocking..

    Will the mainboard go with this extrem conditions ? Thats the question...

    @MatthiasBraun
    I recently got an Alienware17R2 dirt cheap off eBay with GTX980&4980HQ for gaming @ work, it's not bad but the cpu throttle is pissing me off

    JUST use conductonaut!
    Which metal is the CPU Cooler ?

    I ran my L702X @ 810 MHz for years before upgrading, i did remove the mesh on bottom from the inside for better air flow.

    Yep that will work. Exactly
    like the L702X. Please make shure that u
    really use VERY little conductonaut so that
    the paste does to get to the Aluminium body
    and stays on the copper. Please isolate the
    electronic structures directly around the CPU and the GPU
    chip so you dont get a shortcut. Do this with some
    epoxy resin glue. That stuff is very chemical stable.
    Epoxy is used in electronics a lot...

    You can even isolute the aluminium around the copper plates!
    I didnt do it. On one of my machines i even didnt isolate
    the electronic structures around the chips and not shortcut.
    Its important to really use very little... approximately 1/4 needlehead
    on the chip and 1/4 of a needlehead on the copper plates.
    Just a VERY thin layer of this stuff so it does go somewhere else and just
    sticks there!!

    Cooling will be dramatically enhanced as you will find!
    20% at the least! Then also remove all dust filters and other barriers
    for optimal air flow!
