    Hey, everyone! So, it went well for me and I successfully uploaded a modded vBIOS to my 1070. Just used a simple EZP2019+ chinese programmer with 1.8v adapter and a clip. It was kinda flimsy, 'cause it didn't read correctly on the first couple of tries, since the clip had connectors too far away from the tip. But after some time, I found a good position for it and it went well. Going to test the good TDP to clock to temperature ratio and hope for the best!

    Ok, so far, I couldn't see a stable performance under heavy load if I have my wattage around 150 and more. Don't know yet, what is happening, but the laptop just keeps shutting down completely after some tries. I don't have a hungry CPU either, so power delivery shouldn't be a problem.

    It's the default one, 330W. I have a i5-8600k, that usually eats around 100W.

    Ok, I think the issue is solved. It was due to the nature of random voltage spikes. Found it, cause sometimes, just when application was starting, it crashed the whole system. When I put a more flat curve into MSI afterburner, it didn't crash for hour or so. Will collect more data for now. I found that different vBIOS (the one that has higher clocks from factory) behaves much calmer in terms of switching voltages between different clocks.

    I bought an MSI 1060 which I didn't know had gsync. My lcd is not gsync, it's a 120 hz edp1080p panel. Anyways, card is working great but I am getting a black screen. External outputs work and windows/ Nvidia control panel all see the LCD and it's various modes perfectly. The card is not throwing a code 43 error and when I drop my old 980m back in the LCD works so it isn't broken.

    I dumped the bios and got 55 aa for my bios header so that shouldn't be the issue. I also updated the gop to the latest version per my coffee lake bios notes and that didn't help either.

    I am about out of ideas at this moment. Card seems to be working great other than this dumb LCD issue

    Managed to find a different version of nvflash and got the non gsync bios to flash. That outputs to the LCD but throws a code 43 error and the gsync version doesn't flash with it

    What notebook are you using? And what "vendor" card have you bought?

    Got past the code 43. Found a post that said drivers newer than 375.50 throw the code 43 error which turned to be true from what I can tell. Any way to get drivers newer than that without having to allow unsigned drivers with an inf mod?

    Are older drivers work properly?
