    Sorry, but what is this Memory cans?

    Maybe that is why gpuz shows no memory in the info..

    Here are these on the 8gb card 16 pieces, some of them are out of order or even a few, it is necessary to solder the soldering station.

    Hello.
    Thank you so much for the unlocking work done.
    I installed the unlocked BIOS and I had a couple of questions. I understand that if there is only one card, then it only works in "SG" mode? And I also noticed that my card is working in (Pci-e 3.0 / Pci-1.1) mode. After several reboots, I manage to enable pci-e 3.0. Tell me is this a bug of this BIOS or do I need some special settings for this? I have a 970m 6gb card on a blue PCB. There was no such thing in the 17r1 ranger. Is it realistic to make this card work in "PEG" mode, or do you need some other mode?

    Out to the people using the unlocked BIOS.
    What are exactly the features of this unlock?
    I know SG mode, worth if i ever will change to 10xx+. However is for example also TPM or better PTT usable? Which should be in thoery possible. Haswell was the first CPU line got this on board, but sadly in stock BIOS not exposed. Etc.

    As i understand it correctly it should be no problem downgrade from A15 to A12 and then flash Unlock right? Thx

    Edit: OK its only Haswell U not MQ or MX forget it.
