GT 525M Bios mods question ?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hey everybody..

I have the laptop in my sig, it's my main computer.

I know that GT 525M is not a high-end model ( OF COURSE ! biggrin.gif ).

It features 96 Cuda cores only.

So I have some Bios mods available ( It's stock voltage is 0.95v ) :

1 - GT525M to GT550M undervolted to 0.86v.
2 - GT 525M to GT540M undervolted to 0.85v.
3 - GT525M to GT550M at stock voltage.
4 - GT525M to GT540M at stock voltage.
5 - last choice is to overclock via MSI Afterburner.

I just want the maximum performance from it because as I said it's my main computer redface.gif , so I'm confused what to do?

And what's the possible risks ?

Is that your qeustion?

The risk is you kill your mobile gpu and or other parts of your laptop.

Overclocking these cards is risky because they ussualy allready have a VERY HIGH max temprature.

I geuss as long as you watch tempratures and dont Over-Volt too much, it will all be OK.

Edit: Have you allready maximum stable clockspeeds? And maybe its possible to OC your cpu in windows with some software,.

I can overclock it from 600/1200/900 to 740/1480/900 with no issues, I don't over-volt because I know it's dangerous.

Sadly I can't overclock the CPU but it's powerful enough ( It matches i7-920 in benchmarks and outperform FX-8120 too biggrin.gif ).

So you don't think I should mod the BIOS?!

Does modding the bios increase shader count or only change clock speeds and name?

If you allready flashed it would live it like that and just OC the the max stable / not too high temprature.

Of the bios only changes name i would not flash it with warrantee / if it breaks down and needs repairs.

It doesn't change the name , just the clocks.

I think I will remove the idea off my mind , and just OC via MSI Afterburner.

Go for option 5. Overclock with MSI Afterburner.

Dont even think of changing the bios of your laptop gpu.
If by some chance you fail, you cannot install the stock bios because its a built-in gpu,
unlike pci-e cards wherein you can use a different gpu to boot into windows.

Actually I changed it about 4 times , I'm now on stock.
Also I have 2 GPUS , Intel HD Graphics 3000 and GT 525M ( nVIDIA Optimus technology , Intel HD is used for light tasks and nVIDIA for gaming ).

Anyway as I mentioned I will OC via MSI Afterburner.

avoid changing your bios, it's very very very risky ! just use MSI's software to OC it as you like, plus the n5110 are very HOT while in usage especially the i7 model ! (my friend's just turn off while playing GTA IV)
Plus your temp's now (in winter) are not a good reference, i see that you live in egypt, north africa can suffer of high temperatures in summer !

And I see you're from Tunisia , welcome smile.gif

I changed the BIOS 4 times , I will not change it again, My laptop never turned off while gaming or heavy load.
