    I do not have the PEG or SG mode option in BIOS, do I need a custom BIOS for the M17x R4?

    You don't have unlocked bios ? Unlock the bios if you don't have it, and you will have those options.

    Do you have the A13 unlocked BIOS? I been trying to look everywhere for it I can only find people talking about it.

    Thanks mate, extremely helpful so tired of having to keep using 17 forums and make 50 approved posts in them daily just to get download approval.
    I am still contemplating whether to obtain the WX7100 or the 1070 from China since I do have the modified heatsink for it, does anyone know if the 1070 Geocube or MSI ones work with LVDS screens? The only 17.3 inch monitors that have RGB LED backlighting are LVDS and not eDP, either switcheble or PEG mode, I would assume LVDS should work in switchable mode but not with PEG.

    I have 60Hz LVDS and no eDP and ruuning in SG mode. As far as I know but never tried you could use PEG if you are in full UEFI and legacy mode disabled- quote from woodzstack.

    Bear in mind that mine is 1060 not 1070 but who knows you may try.
