The G-Sync was working until I put in your 8086K. With the 7700K G-Sync was working fine.
Can't SVET come to the rescue with that? Or do you guys have Prema Bios?
Yeah, I was just putting the info out there in case anyone else was interested. I'm sure it's something that can be fixed in another BIOS update. Doesn't matter to me as I rarely use the built-in screen on mine, and when I do, it's not for gaming. Maybe this will be an impetus to replace my 1080p/60 screen for the 120 Hz one that didn't support G-Sync in the first place LOL.
Guys so just before I even attempt to buy a new 8700K CPU, how can I check if my laptop is ok to go? Should I just attempt to flash the bios first hand?
What does "ME" stand for?
Here are some benchmarks with my 8086K running at 4.4 and 4.5 GHz. I'll try higher once the heatsinks for the VRMs I ordered come in.
The laptop isn't delivered with 8700K. Aka this notebook model ain't verified / licensed by Nvidia for G-sync display. Not sure if you can fix it with firmware mod.
Easily beats my 4.9GHz 7700K FS benchmark with very low temps. I want to upgrade now but no body answered my previous questions.
You would need to flash the modified BIOS first. Once it takes, then you can proceed with the hardware portion of the upgrade. ME is the Intel Management Engine, the thing that gets compromised with the Spectre/Meltdown (can't remember which) vulnerabilities. You can still do the modification if your system is currently patched, but once you've updated the BIOS, do not re-patch it because it will break compatibility.
OK that's clear now.
Does windows update tend to update ME automatically or is it a manual process? Because my Windows updates are being downloaded automatically right now. I never noticed anything about Intel ME so I just want to be sure.
