    Did you load the vBIOS that you modded? I am not sure what the "Auto" does, does it automatically do "erasing, blank checking, programming, and verifying"? If it does, then I think you can put it back and see if it lighted up and showed any difference under load.

    Dude seriously what are you talking about? All previous images clearly show that pin 1 seems to be on the bottom left. (Depending on how the card is pictured)
    Please dont go about posting about what pin is what, without clear pictures or proper descriptors like the indentations that every SOP / SOIC chip has marking PIN1.
    Vague pointers like will end up having someone burn/destroy their chip.

    That is a Winbond chip. This is exactly why i asked multiple times for a close up of the chip itself. There are different chips used in different batches/versions of the GPU's and can vary from manufacturer to manufacturer/brand.

    Please tell me you made a backup of the data on the chip before flashing the modded vBIOS?

    FOR THE RECORD - PIN1 is the pin next to the tiny indentation on the chip. Doesnt matter where the weird paint/markings are. Always looks for the tiny dot / groove.

    AND IT WORKS!!!

    VALLEY BENCHMARK SITTING AT 1835 MHZ (+200 MHZ) with perfcap reason blank!
    Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!

    Yes I had all backups of the chip.
    And yes I loaded the modded Bios right away. (remember I used programmers before, but only to flash monitors, not IC's).

    (remember my blurbusters posts?)

    Note: I modded the "8A" Bios, NOT the original Bios. Auto overclocking sucks...boost clocks locked at 1835 mhz instead of jumping over 2000 mhz in low loads is much better.

    I was talking about the location of pin 1 not the actual vbios chip.

    I
    I'm gonna check a 1070 FE vBIOS to see what else is different to mine.

    Yes that's what im referring to. Be more specific and use pictures point describing pin layout. And SPECIALLY dont not use vague terminology like "white paint".

    Either way they got it working now so :D

    Looks like a 1070 FE vBIOS has the TDP as adjustable so I'll go ahead and make it adjustable but still keep the same 151-170W TDP limits.

    That'll be the last flash I do for a while....unless @Coolane is able to crack the throttling temp issue.

    Did you guys say the temperature slider isn't working?
    I set my throttle temp to 70C in the Pascal Editor (instead of the 91C in the profile preset) and right now I turned off cooler boost fan so it's on auto, and the GPU temp is 64C right now and still at 1835 mhz, no throttling.
    It was at 55C for an hour running Witcher 2 at the tutorial knight battle point (that was with the fans at 100%).

    Decided to quit and turn off the laptop at 65C; Grizzly Kryonaut was doing too good of a job with automatic fans from letting it reach 70C. . Checked GPU-Z right before turning it off and no temp throttling whatsoever. The clocks were hard locked at 1835 mhz without any variation.
