    310.90 is the lastest WHQL. You've tried those? Just want to be sure. There is also the beta driver.

    I gather you're getting the throttle because of how much strain the two games put on your graphics card, as opposed to Battlefield 3 and Crysis 2, which are not quite as demanding.

    Is it throttling from the moment the game starts? Or does it occur after a few minutes or an hour + of gameplay? Also, check your temps when you get the throttling; you can use HWinfo or GPU-Z and CPU-Z to monitor your thermal activity during the throttling.

    I played about 10-15 minutes, temperature is 78C and throttling start, but sometimes even only 75C

    Hmm, well I don't think 75-78 C is the threshold before throttling kicks in - if anything, your fans should be revving higher before you experience throttling. Are you over clocking? And are you playing on Ultra settings?

    Last few recommendations I have:

    1. Disable any OC'ing, if applicable.
    2. Make sure you have the latest driver - either the 310.90 WHQL or the BETA driver I linked you to.
    3. Reference other programs for your thermal monitoring, and if necessary, clean the fan. If you've had the laptop awhile, you may need to do a repaste, or send it to MSI for one.

    Finally, if you could post your make and model of laptop, that would help myself and others in troubleshooting (hopefully). :)

    There's a small possibility that there is faulty hardware. It could be that the thermal monitoring chip is producing inaccurate temp readings, or that the card itself is the problem. Hopefully that's not the case.

    vBIOS should not be the problem. People generally only modify the vBIOS if they want to unlock some sort of potential out of the card, i.e. undervolting.

    The card should not throttle even at 78C (even into the 80s)

    I would look to your CPU temperatures instead.
