    Hi, I don't know if you guys noticed but I started breaking some benchmark records with my P150EM and GTX680M combo by stretching the legs on the 680M to where its reaching desktop levels.

    This means the name of your 15 inch system has been right next to those benchmarks.

    Unfortunately as others get hold of it they will reach similar levels and their ability to tweak other variables such as the memory and cpu speeds will mean they pull ahead.

    As such if you supplied me with an unlocked bios I would be able to maintain your machine for longer in the top spot.

    I realise you seem to be shying away from such settings these days but if required I can work under NDA as I have for both ATI and AMD (I tested THE first beta catalyst drivers for notebooks and was testing desktop drivers before then) if you don't want the software shared.

    I can be contacted via PM or my email on my profile is also valid.

    I know this is a long shot but if I did not put this out there then I would keep wondering.

    Just a opinion but maybe sager would be more interested in that than clevo.

    Is this a copy of the letter ?

    Because I doubt Clevo representatives visit this forums, but I may be wrong.

    In any case good luck

    Send this to Eurocom and Sager too, a unlocked BIOS could do wonders

    I remember somewhere saying that Clevo locked down the BIOS recently since some people were pushing the limits too high and they didn't want that happening or smth. I'm probably wrong, but I don't know why anyone would lock their BIOS :x

    Well if someone wants to loan Prema their NP9150 I'm sure he could unlock all the hidden goodies in a week or so. :)

    Prema says it's locked down pretty tight.

    It's true.

    The older generation (quite some time ago) had a open BIOS people broke down their CPU's, and several GPU's crashed, even some people destroyed their OS... Clevo doesn't really trust it's consumers as if we fail, everything will eventually point back to them

    I know it wouldn't be fully possible, because of the fact that some hardware parts are physically missing from the motherboard. But still, I was wondering, if you can mix the older open bios (if anyone has it still) with the bits and pieces of the new bios to get a final product where everything (bios software wise) is unlocked, again Myth had pointed out that there will be some hardware tinkering needed as some parts aren't there. What would the outcome be?
