    Sorry, I've found it! I was being a bit basic and didn't click that my laptop is an LGA1151. I did read it the other day, that's what gave me the incentive to look into a BIOS mod. :D

    :D it's been two years since I've had to even look at my CPU.

    I may wait until the 1070 is fitted before I start playing with the BIOS anyway, better to do it once I know the 1070 is working and stable and then start modding and OC'ing.

    Good idea, tweaking should be done from a solid base line.

    My first foray into OC'ing with Nvidia Inspector isn't going too well.... It won't run at +100/+100 like most people seem to be able to, but that is with no OV. Running Witcher 3 on High with V-Sync on keeps to a steady 45 fps with no clocking, but those are rookie numbers, I need to get them up! :D

    I'm just having a go with the 980m as a practice before the 1070 arrives. I know for sure, I'll be happy with the performance of the 1070 with base clock but so it's more of a learning exercise for me.

    Separate ram and core clocking.

    Judging by some posts on the CDprojekt red forums, the Witcher doesn't like playing on over clocked hardware....

    But yeah, I'll give it a go on some proper benchmarking software when I can download some. I'm on a boat on satellite internet at the moment.

    It's a heavy load but the 980m did have a lot of room to be played with when unlocked.

    Yeah, it never seemed to be the GPU struggling, even when I ran it all the way up to +135, it was running good temps and no sign of BSOD or shutdown, just the game would freeze graphically, I could hear Geralt still walking and the menu option sounds so definitely a game issue there. I was getting a 10fps increase with just a +60 so it's quite impressive results from just a little bit of dabbling.

    I managed to finally read the Prema mod review on the DMG and it had some great tips on what software to use so feeling what excited about trying this out and seeing some useful results.
