    Just ordered this notebook and hope to get it by next week. Seeing as how GPU overclocking is locked down on the newer Nvidia drivers, is there any way of overclocking by modifying and flashing a new VBIOS?

    You can use 344 series drivers for OC...i think .75 version is the best

    Also flash Prema's vBios

    Does the 970m in the P650SE use HDMI 2.0? Also therefore does this laptop require a HDMI 2.0 compliant cable to work at 1080p on an external monitor? I'm 99% sure it doesn't but I'm having issues with my new laptop. When I hook up an external display my laptop detects that a monitor/TV(I've tried both) is plugged in but nothing is displayed...

    I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling drivers, I've tried 3 different HDMI 1.4a cables etc.

    that is correct and affects all 347.xx drivers. so u can use 344.xx and 346.xx drivers to oc :) flashing a modded vbios with set overclocks is indeed a way to have both an oc and use the newest drivers ;)

    Does anyone know if windows ties anything to MAC Address? I'm wondering if once I get my new laptop, I'll be able to simply swap the Hard drive into the new one and be done with it

    What advantages do I get if I plan to flash my Bios with the Prema bios?

    Also, the vBios for my 980M allows me to OC it further I understand?

    Also, I'm unable to locate the Prema vBios for our 4gb soldered 980m anywhere. I only see 2 versions for the 6gb and 8gb on the prema website.

    How do you know overclocking is locked? Did you try to overclock it yourself?
