    If you want to increase the TDP your best and only way is to revert back to a stock Vbios, get your self a trust worthy USB SPI programmer with an 1.8v adaptor and a SOIC test clip, then dump the VBIOS 3 times and checksum check that all 3 match. Then using the tool from here mod the vbios and flash back.

    Flashing a Vbios from another OEM is not really advised as you can have issues like you've already had or worse a bricked device.

    I flashed this one and it worked https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/214132/214132 . I actually have the MSI P65 8RE which is pretty much the same as the GS65. That bios says its the GS65 one but the TDP is 78W, the original one i thought it was 60W, i'm not sure now. Anyway, its working great. Thanks for your responses!

    Here is what i tested. I have a MSI P65 8RE with a 1060. Its almost the same to a GS65. All the test are using basic fan profile at fast speed.

    My stock bios has a TDP of 60W, i think the GS65 has a 78W TDP at stock. My temps were max 70 degrees.

    I flashed this one: https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/214132/214132 . Which is supposed to be the stock GS65 and it works, the tdp is now 78W, temperatures are 75 degrees max.

    Then i found this one: https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/208746/208746 . This one allows me to pull 88W, temperatures are now 80 degress max.

    I don't know if to stay with the 78W for safety or the 88W, i don't know if this can be affecting VRM's, i don't know if the system shutdown in case of VRM overheating, if someone know better than me about this it would be nice an explanation.

    Here are the scores 60W vs 88W.

    I tried the 1060 razer, it was 166kb.

    Try looking one using this google search: https://www.google.com/search?biw=1920&bih=1007&sxsrf=ACYBGNTPOaMIshItwiQ5QVcqUUvkn31h1w:1569285871095&ei=72aJXf7CBeKy5OUPyp6M6Ao&q=msi+1070+mobile+bios++site:techpowerup.com&oq=msi+1070+mobile+bios++site:techpowerup.com&gs_l=psy-ab.3...1957.2222..2513...0.0..0.59.107.2......0....1..gws-wiz.0Lax01EtKsA&ved=0ahUKEwi-9pa3nejkAhViGbkGHUoPA60Q4dUDCAs&uact=5

    I'll leave you a link with all the MSI gtx 1070 mobile bios, for me the only ones that worked were from others msi laptops. https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios...&version=&interface=&memType=&memSize=&since=

    Download every bios you find and check the TDP with this the Pascal TDP tweaker.

    I swear I've tried 50 BIOS from that site - it's not possible to change this Razer Blade without a hardware flasher I think.

    Did you flash via nvflash or spi programer?
    If via nvflash then that vbios with 88W might be the one I was looking for my gtx1060 in my MSI laptop that has 78W Vbios.

    I flashed via nvflash, you can try that bios i linked for 88W. Use -6 parameter in nvflash. Of course, do it at your own risk.

    This are my results compared to 60W:

    88W Increase: 15.31%
    78W Increase: 11.71%

    So you should be getting a 4% improvement approximately, i tested with heaven benchmark, time spy and superposition benchmark.

    Nice, thank you. I think that even 6% improvement is in this 10W range.

    One thing I noticed is that my old vbios dump is 160kb while 88W is 166kb but I need to make a backup dump once again for sure. Rest things are maching.
    If I fail I will buy programer so no risk to try I think.
    Which version of nvflash did you use?
