    Hi @Prema , I navigated in the Internet ocean and as I thought I found the solution, voltground.com only serves Asus computers... Also I didn't find any links after watching Mr. Fox nice videos.
    Could you send me a Vbios link for my Alienware 15 R2, i5 6300HQ please?

    What version are you on now Prema? I had version 1.1.1 of the 17 R2 GTX 970M from years ago, any major changes? Can I use this vBIOS after upgrading my regular BIOS to A10 (post-spectre BIOS released last month from Dell)?

    Prema only works on Mods for Clevo and MSI MXM GPU systems now. He hasn't worked on Alienware for a few years. (since this last mod

    @Charles P. Jefferies @katalin_2003
    Could you please possibly close this thread so people stop tagging Prema all the time?
    There will be no more work on this mod

    Are you sure? I've read the last few pages of this thread and saw Prema posted here mid-last year, and @Vasudev still recommended people to PM Prema back in Dec 2017. I did visit his wordpress site, but it aligns with what you're saying as all I could find are the Clevo and MSI GPUs. But it sounds like Prema still has some (relatively) updated mods for AW based on the past few pages of this thread...

    For now Prema has asked us not to post/PM vBIOS since some people were making money of it using Prema's name.

    Aw :(...

    As a software developer, I totally understand his feeling and why he has chosen to stop. But I wonder if the whole reason people are making money off of it is because it is so hard to get the vBIOS in the first place, creating an even greater demand and providing an opportunity for moral-less thieves to make a quick buck. Then again, implementing a distribution system to prevent that would be tedious and boring and probably cost money to maintain also... Arggh why can't we all just be good people so we can have nice things!?

    It was available at prema's site and was taken down recently say 6-7 months ago. I was able to obtain Prema mod vBIOS after @judal57 suggested me.

    Ok then I understand the reason, his good intention got abused...
    Is there any other mean to bypass the volt limit, etc, imposed by the bios' manufacturer?
    You can redirect me to another post if you need.
