    Hello there, I'm new to this forum and I was looking for this thread since days. It's really cool stuff, indeed!
    I'm having a couple of questions before buying a decent ch341programmer. Maybe everything is written in the thread, but it's really huge and I haven't looked everywhere (even if I used the search button, of course).

    1) I'm on a MSI GT73VR 6RE (i7 6820HK / GTX 1070) and so I have a 230W power supply. Is it possible to flash the vBIOS featuring the 150W power limit or is my power supply too weak? I noticed the CPU can use about 70W on turbo (4GHz on all cores).

    2) if it would be possible, how much performances will increase (more or less, of course). Will I be able to gain 10%? Consider on full load my gpu doesn't go over 68° on 1743 MHz

    3) talking about power supply, I saw someone uses a 330W with the GTX 1070 but still throttles over 230W power consumption. Is it because laptops featuring 1070 assumes to use a 230W PS?

    Thanks to everyone who will answer

    Yes you can flash it to 150W. Don't go above 150W. Also you need to use RW Everything after a power off, to change EC register location "E3" to 11 (default value is 10 for 6820HK /skylake GT73VR And 90 for GT73VR Kaby Lake systems, so 7820HK users would want 91 here, although "11" still works on a 7820HK), which is for the GTX 1080 (330W) power allowance. This will stop excessive battery drain from pulling close to 230W. If you don't do this, you will lose like 10% battery every 20 minutes or so if you're pulling about 180W or higher.

    (the 230W PSU can handle about 245W before it shuts off)

    Fine, that's perfect. I have my programmer on his way, it should be delivered today. One more question: my GT73VR is from 2016 and featured a faulty 1070. I sent it to msi about a couple of times and they said they replaced it, but I don't know if that's true, because they returned me with the 3A vbios. I didn't bother too much and I said within me "oh well, it works, doesn't matter if they didn't replace", but now that I'm going to do this vbios flash, I don't know if this can give problems. Is there any way to check if I still have a faulty one? Should I wait until Monday and contact msi to ask informations giving the gpu SN?

    now you have 115w long usage - 70C or similar
    no need 150w ,.,.,.91C is max for long usage or lower"

    here exist 125w vbios + working cert "nvflash"
    for 150w need good PADS // Thermal paste // EC mod

    115w or 125w - ideal 0.893mV - 1850-1900mhz lock"+200 core OC ,.,.vram no need -low TDP"
    i think ,..,no need more ;)

    ,.,notebook performance is ideal HALF/SYNC -60FPS lock
    or some games /// G-sync 75-120 FPS

    I don't know, I tried 3D Mark stress test and it seems the gpu doesn't want to hit 115W at all, just keeps around 100/105W. For pads, I have brand new Gelid Extreme (or Ultimate, can't remember the name) ones and Thermal Grizzly Cryonaut as thermal paste.
    Talking about voltage, it seems the gpu can hold 1.063V with no problem at all, so the gpu seems a working one. Any idea on why my gpu doesn't asks for 115W in 3d mark?

    full stress
    MSI KOMBUSTOR -3d render "ms01" 4x tesselation + full screen "low usage + full vcore" // 32x tessellation "under power limit"
    second VRAM 6500MB GL test "under power limit usage"

    30min -check results ?? dont brick machine
    85C max !! or stop test

    115w - real 0.750V or lower in full load ,,gaming -0.893V MAX "small power limit"
    no need 1V up for LOW usage :D


    or any game 120FPS - more hours gaming
    WAR-Z is ideal for burn test :D

    ideal is OSD in game + voltage // power limit
    i have same card on LM - 84C is no problem for 125w long usage !!!

    I haven't found lots of parameters you gave, so I thought it was a CLI command, but combustor started just normally, so I'm just using it through the GUI. It is using all 115W, keeping voltage under 0.9V, don't know why. Temps are under 60° with turbo boost on. I'm going to keep it up for a half hour

    TDP -115w is low / more usage - lower voltage
    but best is OSD or HWINFO
    60C ?? it's very good results

    edit.. .,,example from my GT75 + 125w load
    VRAM test

    extreme load / slow fan curve for full stress + cpu stress
    View attachment 189336

    edit ,,gaming stress
    MSI_01 stress - GPU / full screen
    + cpu burner "4 cores only" 50./. usage "most games"

    game stress ,.,.or stability verify "x8 cores"

    // additional is VRAM test
    select GL6500MB --full vram + CPU
    heavy game

    fan setup ? headphones + cooler booster :D
    or target is max 3000rpm before startup helicopter
    20-20-30-50-60-100 is my GPU curve "fan setup"
    3000RPM gaming /lower idle ,.,.max rpm under 90C
    example
