    Sorry, I haven't actually launched a game. I am just so psyched that the "device is working properly" and the rest of the stats look good also :)

    edit: launched Dota 2, and everything looked great. So glad you guys helped out. I am eternally grateful.

    Check your GPU core clock with Nvidia Inspector or MSI Afterburner - that 540 isn't right.

    No that all looks correct. Regardless if you're worried its not working correctly or at full boost clocks run a benchmark and compare your score to a score of a similar system. Something like firestrike. Even you're still worried, simply create an on screen display of all clocks and temps for monitoring in real time.

    I'm Confused.. Where is "540" on that GPU-z? Oh.. I've seen that ss .. Yeah Talon is right. It's normal because you're not running 3d apps or games. the gpu is on 2d mode. Upside of Maxwell is that it runs much cooler than previous gpu's of Nvidia :)

    Yes, nice figures, working. GPU-Z reads the default clock wrong/differently on Maxwell compared to Kepler and Fermi. So Nvidia Inspector is the best tool to get the right figures. GPU-Z sensor tab shows yet the current clocks ok.

    Hey, sorry to bother you again, but I just want to confirm whether the EC firmware and BIOS on the MSI support site for the GT70 2PE is actually the latest. I've already updated both of those to the latest posted there. Am I good to go ahead with the upgrade?

    I would be much better if you contact "Svet" in msi forums because first and foremost, he is one of the administrator there and most of all he is the one who unlock's the bios and ecfirmware's gaming laptops. Of course with a little donation everything is possible to svet
