    Thanks to Prema for his 980m mod! I've just recently flashed to your vbios, and despite just using my 980m on stock clocks, my firestrike scored have consistently gone up by a bit.
    As a reference, I'm using an AW15 R1
    i7 4720HQ +Gtx 980m +240w ac +A06Bios
    Stock Vbios firestrike scores : 8200~ish
    on Prema Vbios, I consistently get 8400-8500 on stock clocks: http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/9221815

    On a side note, it seems that I always get an "nvidia adapter has stopped working" every time I run firetrike with
    an OC of jsut +160 on both core and memory (with +12.5mV) using Nvidia Inspector.. I wonder if I should be raising the Voltage even more? I've seen other folks on this thread OC to higher core and memory speeds and not have firestrike crash. :oops:

    I have the exact same issue. I finally just settled on 100 on the core and 200 memory.

    Hey Sluggz, did you use any overvolt with your OC of 100core and 200mem? I was thinking maybe the 12.5mV I used was a tad low..

    edit: just tried the same settings, with a 25mV overvolt and I got roughly the same score.

    I suppose I'll settle with these numbers or something similar :p

    No I haven't messed with overvolt. Nvidia inspector doesn't seem to like running on my computer. It gives me a bsod about 50 percent of the time

    Also I bought my girlfriend the exact same set up as you. Did you have any issues running firestrike? Everytime i try on hers the program only runs on the dead center of her screen with large black borders. Do you have the 4k screen ?

    Your Firestrike went from 8300 to 10090 with stock clocks?
