    So yeah these forums are currently messed up so I'm creating a new thread.

    I used the old P34G BIOS mod instructions to mod my BIOS, disable the "Hidden Function" and found a whole bunch of new settings, mostly stuff you wouldn't want to change. You can however disable Turbo mode, Hyperthreading and VT-d which is what I was looking for. You seem to be able to set fan trigger temps but sadly nothing related to Optimus that I can see.

    For those who care the thread is here http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/gigabyte-p34g-unlocked-bios.738723/

    NOTE: I DID NOT USE THOSE FILES (obviously). I used the method that he explained, which you can see if you scroll down a ways.

    I'm not posting my files because they might be somehow different and your laptops might brick etc. I'm not responsible for what you guys do with your laptops so BEWARE :) Messing with these options can easily brick your laptop.

    If you have any questions about the method I used I'll try to help.

    Update #1: DO NOT DISABLE INTERNAL GRAPHICS haha. I was hoping this might force the nVidia to take over but nope just gave me a blank screen. Had to navigate through the BIOS blind to re-enable it, was quite worrying as you might imagine. Luckily the BIOS layout seems to be the same as that post I linked above.

    Hi, did you notice any significant differences in temperatures or battery life after disabling Turbo mode, Hyperthreading and VT-d? Thanks in advance.

    I tried with Turbo off and yeah the max temperatures are better (still not great). But as this can be done via the Intel XTU appplication there's no need to flash your BIOS for that :) Also, VT-d has nothing to do with temperature, it needed to be disabled for an OS I was installing.

    So i enabled the hidden menu and when i boot into bios it will allow me to enable or disable the hidden menu. How do i actually get into those settings?

    Did you flash the new BIOS? Go to advanced and change the Hidden Function setting to Disabled.

    Thanks, setting it to disabled did the trick. I guess i just thought it made sense that setting it to enabled would turn them on

    Yeah I agree it is weird. I guess by setting it to Enabled you say you're enabling the hiding :)

    Were you able to modify anything related to the stupid 70C CPU throttling limit?

    There is no 70 degree throttling limit on the P35X and never has been, it's set to 90. Yes, you can change it if you like.

    Disabling turbo boost on XTU is locked for me, you mean after using unlocked BIOS you can disable turbo boost using XTU or am I missing something?
