    How about you start telling us what notebook you have and what power supply you own. That itself might be very helpful. Also what CPU you're running with.

    Right away :)
    I own Clevo p670rs-g 17.3" notebook powered with I7 6700HQ, GTX 1070 8gb VRAM ,MB P65_67RSRP. 250gb SATA3 ssd, 250 m2 ssd 1xhdd, 16gb 2133mhz DDR4 ram
    PSU ADP-230EB T 230W

    Currently gpu power throttles at 115wats, according to TDP tweaker.

    I would not do a higher TDP if I were you.
    I've seen many P6xx notebooks which died because of TDP modding. It seems the notebook cannot handle much more than 115W on the GPU.

    An undervolt and tuning to the power limit is the best option.

    So apparently my MSI GTX 1060 has a 78W TDP which explains why the clocks are always fluctuating so much.

    Does enabling the slider using this tool and allowing it to increase higher work? Or should I just fixed the TDP higher to like 100W?

    My friend is getting a programmer soon and I wanna get this thing higher. :D

    Before doing the mod, I'd recommend making sure the cooling is proper, since 100WTDP does stress out the VRM's more and makes the card warmer. If you run the card at high temps it will trigger to downclock itself and you'll be back at square one.

    Also you might not be that lucky to just flash a new version onto the card. I had tremedious difficulties myself flashing that specific card.

    @Danishblunt did the flasher error or did the chip not match the flash?

    Do you know of any other official MSI vBIOS for 1060 that have a higher TDP already? That would be easier to flash since it wouldn't require a programmer.

    Idk if you can cross-flash vBIOSes from other vendors, but the 1060 in 8th gen AW and Clevo systems have the OC vBIOS, which is 88W instead of 78W.

    DId not match etc.

    @ssj92 Nope, the card is made for 78W also Prema advised against crossflashing BIOSes because it would destroy cards, so you probably don't want to do that either. Honestly the difference would maybe be around 10%, it's not worth destroying your card over. Couple of people here destroyed their cards already, 1 even deleted his account out of frustration of his dead GT 73 VR.
