    If I knew, I wouldnt ask. Google images do show them to be a regular fuse. Can anyone send an example on how the backlight fuse should look like on a clevo motherboard?

    Can you post images up of the area you are working on?

    Hey guys,

    I have recently decided to upgrade my system to use it for the next years.
    780m to 1060
    4800mq to 4930mx

    I think a custom prema bios would help me in achieving my goal.
    What is the best way to get in contact with Prema and ask him whether he is willing to provide me a bios?

    Also are there any custom bios for the 1060 that would be worth looking into?

    Thx in advance.

    You have to be careful which 1060 card you choose, power unlocking some could leave you with a burnt card.

    The 1060 I got is one of the black pcb dell ones. You have any experience with those?
    Unlocking the 1060 is just something I was thinking about maybe doing the future if I don't go for a 1070.

    Right now I'm primarily trying to get a prema bios for my system. From what I read getting one can be difficult.
    What's the best way of contacting him?
    Do I just tag @Prema?

    You can though usually you can get on fairly well without. What are you clocked to at the moment?

    I actually can't tell you right now. My relative, who lives in China, will only visit me tomorrow and give me the parts.
    I'd want the bios because I get a lot more options for tweaking in the future when I am looking to push my system to the limit. Don't have the time right now.
    Will only get the max out of the system after improving the cooling system anyway.
    From what I read it also enables me to run faster RAM.

    Ram with a higher SPD can boot at those speeds still but there is less room for adjustment.

    Have the parts now. Only did some preliminary testing if they are working with some very old nt-h1 I had lying around. Could potentially explain my temps. Will repaste with Kryonaut once I get it.

    4930mx is @stock clocks with -60mV undervolt. Temps hitting 98C and hitting current limit. How high can I go with the current? What temps should I be hitting? Haven't been able to find anything on that.

    1060 I can run @+240/+660. Problem is I'm hitting power limit. Even @stock. Is a 75w bios. Am looking into getting a SkyPRO to fix that. Is there a way to find out how much power I can give my card without frying it?

    In terms of graphics score I am beating the score of the "secret sauce oc"

    Yeah they run close to the line out of the box, so it's more about driving that undervolt as far as it will go.
