    thanks :)

    Maybe you guys also have unlocked bios that will allow me to rise BCLK on MS-1762?

    Now I have x51 version but when I check ICC clocks its locked in bios. XTU is the same all settings are greyed.

    Hi all,
    I got a MSI 970m gtx gsync (ID 1618) from a MSI GT72. I tried to install it on my MSI GT70 (optimus) but the 970m stays idle all the time, whatever I do.
    Is the gsync BIOS prevents the card to be working in an optimus laptop?
    Thanks for your help.

    Backup the VBIOS, then try to flash with the other one that might had been compatible with the current system, see if this gets resolved or not.

    Hi.
    Thanks for your answer.
    Actually you can't flash a non gsync vbios on a gsync card, that will brick it.
    I found a heavily modded driver by j95 that actually works.
    As soon as I have time I'll post the tutorial in the msi sub section.

    Ok some update.

    Flashing T.24 to MS-1762 gives about 10% performance drop!

    Use version T.17 that you can find on msi forum. T.24 is performance killer. Dont flash it.

    Hi there, I've a msi gt60 whitebook ms16f4, my 870m died, so i'll be replacing it with a 970m 6GB that I think is a clevo [blue pcb] ?
    [​IMG]
    Seller says its from a gt60 3k .
    Current BIOS E16F4IMS.70Y 06/04/2014 date.
    Would it be just plug and play?
    Might need to dremel the heatsink I think? my profile pic)
    Thank you.

    Did you see a need to dremel? You may have to but if you don't see the need after a fit test then you will know what to do.

    Hi there, after seeing it side to side with my old 870m, and trying to fit it on top, there was a need to dremel it. Got it done, bit of a hack job but hey it works.

    Installation was easy, basically plug and play. Nothing else needed to be done, newest geforce drivers broke windows aero though, so I rolled back to an early November one.

    Just tested the 970m 6GB in The Witcher 3 and Jedi Fallen Order, temps are around 78 gpu/ 67cpu.
    Fallen Order has higher CPU temps at 80 degrees while gpu is around 67..
    Already re-applied thermal paste.
    Reused old thermal pads for graphics card though.. New ones didn't arrive in time.
