    A generic one off Google, as you can see the intake portion of the cpu fan isn't as wide

    Oh you mean the actual fins of the fan, for air pressure.

    Yes the shroud around the fins, sorry I should have explained it better (although I doubt anyone has ever attempted to before).

    It will be balanced for fin density and fan size.

    Are you sure? Or maybe the heatsinks are of the same size and the difference between them was that the manufacturer gave aluminum for the 150xm series and copper for the 170xm series?[​IMG]

    It defiantly can do it. Mine was from PC Specialist, they sent them out with a locked BIOS, Novatech however said there's were unlocked.

    However I now have a Prema Unlocked BIOS and it now functions correctly and has fixed this issue for me

    Hi,

    I would like to OC my cpu (i7 4910MQ) in a Clevo P17SM-A and I found this around here: http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/finely-stable-4910mq-oc.778717/

    I'm new at this to start with and I didn't do much overclocking since the days we had to switch jumpers on the motherboard of our computers. I wanted to get the same results more or less, but in his steps, the guy mentions that there is a setting in BIOS called "Long duration power limit". Albeit he has an Alienware, but I googled a bit around and found out that some Prema bioses have the same setting under the OC menu. Now, I have Prema (BIOS Version is 1.03.11PM v2 / EC 1.03.09) and it doesn't have the setting in question. Can someone please guide me on what would be the best approach to OC this cpu? Which of this settings should I touch and what do they do?

    Link below with some pictures of my bios screen.

    What does "IA Core Current Max (1/8 Amp)" do?
    Do I need to make any adjustments in the "SVID and FIVR Control" section? And last but not least, what does the "Intel ICC" section do comparing to the "CPU Overclocking"?

    Sorry dude, not allowed to share Prema's work. If you want his stuff then you need to reach out to him yourself somehow. He stopped making his work public due to people copying his stuff.

    Hey, I tried his twitter but can't DM him. Do you know how I can contact him? Getting the same issue as you and it's driving me insane!

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Thanks!
