    May be you can make simple BIOS for us W740SU for Mac OS support?

    Non Windows 8 mode?
    CPU PM patch, MSR 0xE2 lock removal?
    AES NI unlock?

    The new Mods have re-introduced bug for a NON UEFI LAN PXE boot scenario, which I thought I had fixed.
    Will have a fixed version up by tonight.
    The new version will keep the v2 revision, but instead show 27 Feb 2014 as date in CPU-Z etc...

    Sorry and thanks for your patience! :hi2:

    EDIT: All versions fixed and online!

    ENJOY! :)

    I've had this bios installed on my p150em with a 3720qm or a while now and it's great, no issues whatsoever, however I want to do some benchmarking with my machine and was looking at keeping the turbo on the cpu run for longer, at default it runs on turbo or 30 seconds but it it safe to make it run for 120 seconds?

    The CPU will always throttle once either:

    - "Turbo Time" is reached
    - "TDP" limit is reached
    - Thermal Limit is reached

    In the P-EM Mod we altered the "Turbo Time" and you have the option to alter the "TDP" manually in XTU.
    But it'' always throttle back once it's getting too hot. So yeah it is safe either way.

    Well I know my cpu never exceeds its TDP and thermal limits so I don't think upping the turbo time should be an issue, thanks
