    Hello everyone. I've got an Alienware 17 R3 with gtx970m 3gb and looking for the modded vbios but couldn't get it anywhere :/. Can you guys help me?? I really want to utilize my laptop's performance.Thanks in advance. Also I would love to see @Perma's website back up and running.Thank you @Perma for your hard work and dedication.


    Also for the persons having issues dumping your vbios with gpu-z and having the error.I was running the latest main motherboard bios and I gradually downgraded back to the first release bios meaning for Example:bios version 1.3.10 -> 1.3.9 -> 1.3,8 -> 1.2.8 and so on.I was able to dump without even disabling the nvidia gpu in device manager.

    Update BIOS to latest 1.3.12 and never downgrade to 1.2.x version because it can burn DC cable due to excessive current.

    @Prema Hope you can still share your modded vbios for my alienware 17 r3 i7 6700hq 970m 3gb.. wanted to try overlocking mine gpu to get maximum performance of my laptop.. Thanks..

    wanted to share my experience with alienware 17 r3 bios update. Bios update beyond 1.3.6 has caused my laptop to cpu throttling. I have noticed it throttles more when gpu is on max load. tested it with heaven 4.0 benchmark. if i use occt it still throttles but not frequent. mind you my cpu max temp is 65 degree celcius and gpu temp is 58 degree celcius. this is with -170.9 mv undervolt using TS. It throttles right away, you dont even have to wait for a minute. LOL.. so 1.3.6 bios is my most stable bios.. this is just my experience.. some might have used 1.3.12 without any problems..

    It has fix for strange stuttering due to HT bug , updated IRST Rom and throttling temps have been increased to 95C, I mean firmware level throttling.
    Try checking your undervolt stability using OCCT linpack, the newer W10 builds need more power so it might be your undervolt. -150mV to -160mV should be good enough.

    Sorry forgot to mention I also tested it without undervolt. My conclusion was the bios update which seemed right as I dont have the throttling issue anymore.

    For me if I downgrade to the first release bios which is 1.2.8 I think I get the ability to overclock my ram under performance tab but also get more heat on cpu without fan performance mode.Also if I was to update to latest bios I get lower cpu temps
