    Let me know if you guys have issues with the patch.

    On thing I noticed is that the 3dVision patch doesn't look like it actually does 3d Vision.

    What I did was actually mod the device id for the 480m

    I'll try patching some other lines or adding some and see what happens.

    Your 4.7 patcher worked perfectly for VGA on 341.74 on Windows 10.

    I said that too, but CC isn't listening. LOL. Kidding, CC. The 4.7 version works, provided the driver files are in the right place on C drive. Ref Bug fix in v4.6. It's back.

    Some issues with test mode - if you use the patcher itself to set the test mode, all is well. If you use Windows to restart in test mode, the patcher does not detect this and says that test mode is disabled.

    You can go back, in the instructions you can put the old bois back if you saved it.
    But you really don't need to, you can just switch the bios setting back.

    The fans running on full and shutdown is indicative of a physical problem, I am suffering the same right now. I am going to open and replace the thermal pad with a shim and put new paste on it. It is also important that you use the Sony drivers for thermal strategy. The windows default stuff doesn't work too well.

    Right now I have my processor clocked down to keep it cool. I am planning to fix this properly tonight. I will take pictures, and give a better write up.
