    Usually uninstalling SCM, reboot, install newest (or even the same version) SCM, reboot, then try the switch / app trigger for switching - which should reboot you into the other GPU.

    You can also do it in the BIOS, using the magic combo it unlocks a lot of crap in the BIOS, GPU switch is one of those options.

    Cool, can you please post a BIOS screen photo, so we can see where it is and what are the options?

    Sure.

    Falkentyne posted the combo today on this forum somewhere, and if @Naweed R. wants it I will send it via PM.

    The option is in the advanced menu, change to what you want, save and exit and it switches the GPU in use, I wont even install SCM again, because thats what it only was good for

    Be WARNED That on some MSI bios versions, switching from dGPU to iGPU and back to dGPU in some conditions and certain ...uh...circumstances, can cause a permanent black screen unless you know how to clear the CMOS. This can be fixed by setting PEG ROOT PORT 1 from Auto to Enabled. I already told Svet about this.

    This is exactly what i was looking for in the BIOS.
    If you could send a pm about how to access it, that would be great :)

    Is it really that risky to switch back and forth from the BIOS? my current BIOS version is E1782IMS.11D from 10/14/2016

    I shall try @hmscott 's method first as having to switch from the button is easier. I assumed that there was no way to do it from the BIOS

    Yeah. I wrote to him already, but I heard that prema bioses are superior, so that is why I am asking about him. If I wont get premamod then I try svet's mods.

    Just to summarize

    Gpu vbios mod will give me unlocked overclocking. Anything else?

    Also can you guys told me if unlocking bios gives ) any real advantages in gt72s 6qe (i7-6280hk, 32gb ram, 980m 8gb).

    What kind of benefits gives me Ec firmware mod?

    Is there anything else I could do to get better performance/stability? Any software, firmware, hardware mods to the laptop/gpu? ( for example I have seen people adding some electronic elements like mosfets to the gpu).

    I also would like to repad gpu with better pads. I was considering GELID pads. Do you know what thckness should it be? It is hard to measure it, but as I can see there is at least 2 different thickness used.

    Thanks in advance

    Svet's mod is just as good as Prema. GPU VBIOS mod requires you to have a SPI flasher tool to do a direct flash since you aren't able to flash nowadays in OS.
    EC firmware mod provides hacks that allows the system to unleash more performance at expense of stability if exceeding certain threshold as well as thermal limitations.
