    Yeah the 680m with added cooling and tweaking was a beast.

    Hi, sorry to bring this back from the dead, but what did you do to install the modded drivers - I have a Zotac Zbox with a laptop 2060 and no matter what I do the drivers will not install.

    Thanks

    Did you disable driver signing enforcement with an advanced restart (hold shift when selecting restart)?

    So currently there is no way to increase the TDP of 2060 to more than 90W am I correct? Feels bad when it keeps showing power limit flag even though there are still rooms for more in terms of thermal.

    It fails on the system compatibility test. I have disabled driver enforcement via cmd. Does it have to be done via shift restart specifically?

    I'd do a restart with it disabled to be sure.

    Wow, so just finished benchmarking. Took quite a while with tinkering but here's the final result! OC settings at +220 on the core and +1200 on the memory clock. CPU running at stock clocks with -140mV undervolt. Now upgraded to 16GB kit running in dual channel.

    Firestrike: 15632 Score, 17311 Graphics Score (http://www.3dmark.com/fs/21519489)
    Timespy: 6832 Score, 6789 Graphics Score (http://www.3dmark.com/spy/10155722)

    It's nice to see since these scores beat the 2070 Max Q, a laptop GTX 1070 and a desktop GTX 980! All in a thin and light laptop with 5 hours of battery life (with the smaller battery, will upgrade to the larger one which I'm expecting 6-7 hours) All for ~$1200USD total, I am very, very happy!

    Also I noticed the Eluktronics laptop gets a 115w vBIOS for its 2060. I would kill for that vBIOS...

    It’s not a vBIOS, it’s a hardware modification on the motherboard that acts similar to a shunt mod. Software like HWiNFO still read the GPU power as being within normal limits (80W) but the card can actually use 115W. The Wal-Mart EVOO 17 (same unit as the Eluktronics Mech-17) has the same 115W modification and scores higher than you even at stock as a result.

    That's s little frustrating to say the least. I wish Lenovo had such a modification somehow available...
