    The preset button is fine. You're supposed to press that.
    But manually entering in an extreme power limit is a big no-no !! These are **NOT** WATT (TDP) limits! These are PCIE rail limits, , which are completely undocumented.
    I know first hand that changing one of them (not sure which one) affects the GPU throttle watts point while on *battery* power.
    You can enter the GTX 1080 value for extreme power limit 1 (19200) vs 16200 and also I assume the other two, when modding a 1070, but going past the base 1080 values is asking for trouble if you don't know what you're doing.

    One GT73VR user destroyed his VRM's by entering in the deskop GTX 1080 Ti "Extreme" limits in these fields when he set a 260 watt limit on his MXM 1080. Not only did it take his card's VRM's out, it damaged the motherboard also (only iGPU would work even on a repaired card, which would give no signal).

    Thanks , i finally found how to avoid this throttle . Anyone's looking to unlock his M17X R4 , you have to hibernate then resume OR shutdown ( not reboot ) and power on again . That way we can bypass the 100W limitation . Don't ask me why Dell did this ^^
    Hope this will help others =)
    Be safe !

    Hello mates I just flash my(1080) vbios with coolanes app and I want to thank him personally for his effort sharing the app with us.
    I flash the 258w vbios because the 280w it will be an overkill for my 330w power supply anyway :p
    So I run a firestrike bench and I got this:

    I think that already hitting 315w while im playing or bench so im ok and happy:);)

    Hi, would this work with a 2070 (not Max-q) and flashing the modded vbios through nvflash with board id mismatch disabled ? I don't mind the error 43 driver since I'm using using Linux and this error doesn't exist on the Linux driver.

    Edit : I extracted my vbios with GPU-Z but Mobile Pascal TDP Tweaker opens it as "unsupported". I still can adjust settings tho. Is it safe ?
    Edit 2 : When I click preset and then save, the program throws an exception. When I simply open the vbios and set the target to 150000 and limit to 170000 (manually, without clicking on preset), I can save it without any problems...
    Here's the link to my extracted vbios if someone could check on it : deleted

    What exactly is your board/system?
    My 2070 is "supported" and fully recognised in utility, maybe your dump isn't correct then?
    Not tried to mess with it yet, probably will wait until warrany expires and someone else succesfully does the mod.

    I have a PC Specialist Recoil III / Tongfang GK7CP7S (i7-8750h/2070 8gb). I tried with a dump from both GPU-Z and nvflash. The utility opens it, shows the correct vendor id and correct informations about target and limit power control (115000), but it puts 'unsupported' in BIOS name and Model fields. However the thermal limits fields are all set to 0, I don't know if it's normal or not.
    You can try to open the vbios I linked to check it. May I have a dump of your vbios or a screenshot of your Mobile Pascal TDP Tweaker window ?

    Edit : I figured the error in the utility is cause whenever I check Adjustable or Fixed Power Slider and then save. By default none is checked and there's no problem saving.

    Checking yours was the first thing i've tried.
    No, zeros in fields are not normal, and it seems your version of vBios indeed is not supported...
    Here's screenshot, my Clevo vBios is on the right.
    I don't recommend you trying to manually enter these values or to flash another manufacturer's vBios though, let's wait until someone more experienced responds.

    Of course I won't flash it if I'm not 100% certain it would work. I'll wait for an update of the program. Thanks for your time :)
