    Mobile Pascal TDP Tweaker v1.1.1.0 (06/26/2017):
    1. Added support for vBIOS extracted directly from the chip-set;
    2. Added support for Titan X Pascal and Titan Xp(experimental);
    3. Better support for some vBIOS that have no name;
    Mobile Pascal TDP Tweaker v1.1.0.0 (06/20/2017):
    1. Small bugs fixed;
    2. Black screen fix for some non-gsync vBIOS and old vBIOS;
    3. Interface redesigned and polished;
    4. Added "Preset" button (only for notebook cards);
    5. Added "Extreme" section for hard-core users to completely remove power throttling (not recommended, inappropriately modifying these values can easily burn your card!);
    6. Added convenient "Tools" section for hex-editor users;
    7. Support desktop Pascal vBIOS (experimental; 1060, 1070, 1080, and 1080Ti only);
    Download, details, and disclaimer
    (my MSI 1070 got 5V Rail shorted, be very careful of using high TDP values, stay below 200W and try not to use Furmark):

    How to check chip-set model:

    Clarification of "Pin 1" on the chip-set:
    The Pin 1 on the vBIOS chip-set is the one next to a tiny concave dot on the chip, it has nothing to do with the White Dot.
    The white dot is just/only an indication of that chip is a vBIOS chip. Incorrectly connecting your chip with the clip can result in damage of the chip-set.

    Experiment of how TDP values affect performance under heavy load on the GTX 1070 (this can be a reference if you would like to modify your TDP value):
    Core clock added 189MHz, memory added 450MHz during the 10 runs.

    Right, the temp slider doesn't really work, as well as the throttling temp for dynamic clocks. :p

    Not really. Checking the "Adjustable" for temp slider only makes it showed up in Afterburner or Inspector, it couldn't really set the value at this moment.
    So you can just leave it "Fixed". The same with throttling temp, even thought it set to 91C, the dynamic clocks still start dropping around 54C.

    hopefully you can find a solution.

    EDIT: I had a look at the MSI 1070 FE (as well as other 1070 vbios from MSI and other vendors) and the throttling temp was only 60 degrees compared to the MSI 1070N's 54. A 6 degree difference isn't a big deal but being able to alter it to 60 and work would be nice.

    Also, does altering the rated and max temps have any effect?

    Nice. Thank you for creating the tool, it should come in rather handy, especially once we figure out how to flash the modded vBIOS.

    Curious. Is there any chance you're going add support for the Titan X (Pascal) and Titan Xp Desktop vBIOS in the future as well?
