    You need a station to do it properly as poor contact has it's own risks with the chips.

    Well the next thing I guess I'll be doing is trying to sell it. No point keeping such a poor investment that's bound to fail again within a few years. It isn't worth it. I just hope others who may be on the fence about buying one of these learns from my mistake and stays away.

    And no more Nvidia for me either - In desktops or laptops. I'm finished with them. I've never owned an Nvidia card that wasn't the first PC component to fail.

    AMD do tend to have over engineered power stages in desktops at least.

    I bought a razor core x and installed a friends 1080ti. Motherboard is P775dm1-g with 6700k and gtx980.

    When i connect a get a pop up. "Thunderbolt device functionality might be limited" and no devices under device chain but i do see the Core x in device manager under USB devices.

    Dose my motherboard have the correct thunderbolt 3 port?

    Thanks

    Hi all,

    I'm not a PC expert or a gamer, just an engineer who needs a fast computer for CAD work. I have some dumb questions about a laptop I bought used a few years ago.

    CPU speed (especially single thread) and disk i/o speed are very important. I do long modeling runs where the CPU will max out for hours.

    Specs:
    • Xidax/Clevo P750DM-G
    • i7 6700k
    • 32GB DDR4 2133MHz RAM
    • 2x128Gb NVME PCIE SSD Boot drives in raid 0
    • CUSTOM PremaMod Nvidia 970m MXM 3.0 upgradable graphics with 6Gb GDDR5
    I recently had to reinstall Win 10 from scratch (from a USB drive) so I had to reinstall a bunch of drivers. I got most of them here:
    https://www.clevo.com.tw/en/e-servi...sp?Lmodel=P7xxDM/P7xxDM-G&ltype=9&submit=+GO+

    Ok, now for the dumb questions: :D

    1) CPU-Z says the BIOS is AMT 1.05.05 so I assume this means stock BIOS and not Prema, or could it still be Prema? How can I tell?
    2) If BIOS is stock then what are my options for overclocking and/or undervolting?
    3) How do I use the custom video BIOS which is supposed to be there?
    4) Is the Prema Mod BIOS on the video card itself or on the mobo? If the former, then what if I decide to upgrade the video card?

    Thanks in advance :)

    Rick

    My laptop shut down unexpectedly today and now won't turn on. If i hold the power down the power led flashes green continually but that is all.

    Any idea what the fault is?

    Thanks
