    i see what u meant i just noticed his bios number in the picture and its prema bios, was looking earlier to see if he does mention he is using prema bios or not.
    only reason i wanted prema bios was to unlock power control on gpu since my core clock is not stable on my 1060.

    No can do. it's the vBios on the 1060 that limits the power not the actual Bios itself. you'll notice that you get power limt when doing benchmarks.

    You can only fix this by doing a vBios flash with higher TDP which requires a hard programmer, such as the CH34A1 etc.

    ya i read about the hardware flashing and not going to do it.
    the weird thing with the gpu is it goes to higher clock on 60% or lower gpu usage and dropes by about 200 mhz when gpu usage hit 100% as u can see here

    Well yea that makes sense doesn't it?

    It's limted by the amount of power it's getting/limiting itself to do. So if you don't need as many cuda cores etc. it can run at higher clocks, since the power consumption isn't that high, but the moment its using more cores etc. the frequency will drop, since the other compontens will use more power, letting them run at a lower speed due to the power limit.

    You'll notice when opening afterburner witrh power limit enabled, youll see that everytime you start something with high power consumption, such as firestrikew that your core clocks will fall down and power limit will flash on.

    ya i do know what is going on and ya it makes since, i just though laptop bios is the thing limiting it and not the vbios. thats why i wanted it so i can increase the power a bit since the laptop can handle it.

    Welp, have to dissapoint you, there is nothing you can do except for buying a programmer.

    the price of programmer is cheap as i saw, but dont want to risk bricking the card sadly.

    Actually it's pretty hard to brick the card with the proper programmer because you can directly program the chip again. So if you take a backup first then you are set.

    Most settings will match desktop boards so general guides should apply.
