When i changed the memory clock offset in Nvidia inspector with the base clock offset by 444 mhz+ the pc blocked and i need to shutdown the pc rapidly. i thought i bricked the Video card. As i restarted everything was returned to normal settings.
The OC for the gpu is already written into the BIOS, so any oc's you set in software will be in addition to that. The defaults in my bios are just higher, so putting at 1489 MHz will kill the card. So, don't touch the OC; everything is set at a bios-level.

Stock 670mx is 601 MHz core and 700 MHz Mem
My BIOS: 1045 MHz core and 2601 MHz Mem

Other than that, run my defaults (+0 on core and +0 on mem - aka no changes) and you'll be good. If it's unstable, lower the clocks via MSI afterburner.

lol

Hey all, left this thread a few years back. Life got busy.

Thanks to RypeDub, I was sucessfully able to un-brick my g75vx, and also install his custom bios. Stable GPU clock at 946 MHz and memory clock at 2404 MHz. Such a lad

Now, I'm not entirely sure this question falls under this thread, but I will ask it anyways as this thread has been very helpful for this laptop. Has anyone successfully attached an eGPU to this laptop? I've been looking at the "beast EXP GDC v8.4d" to attach to the mPCIe for the wifi chip. There have been forums on other sites regarding the g75vw, but not for this model. would the thunderbolt 1 connection be a better option? Reason for asking is, while I can get high-ish settings for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt at 2560 x 1080, I am looking to play newer games such as Metro exodus. Currently, I experience massive screen tear at cutscenes, and the fps is well under 30 in most instances (using 1920 x 1080). Still amazed that this laptop can run it at all, honestly.

Any info would be well appreciated.

I debated doing an eGPU setup with this system, there is an option that should work where you remove the wifi card and run directly through that (
).

That was exactly my thinking. Here's my post to reddit asking the same question.

"Asus G75vx eGPU Compatibility
Hey all, first post here on Reddit. So I have an Asus g75vx with a 670mx integrated gpu (laptop). Currently, I am running a modded bios for overclocking the base and memory clock speeds. My current base clock hovers around 950 mHz, whereas the memory is around 2400 mHz (using nvidia inspector). I have removed the bottom panel and added extra mini heatsinks to increase the cooling performance, and have applied new thermal paste/pads to the cpu and gpu. I use a LG display at 2560x1080 overclocked to 75Hz.

However, with all new games, my system is limited to medium settings with <40 fps on most, and plenty of screen tear. I have used the included software with MSI afterburner to check what is the bottleneck on my system, and it seems to be the gpu. (I tested with metro exodus, and 100% of the gpu is being used, whereas the cpu stays around 30ish%, memory around 2.4gigs of my total 8gigs with medium settings).

I have been interested to mod my system further with an eGPU, as the laptop itself, while being dated, is still a powerhouse on most applications. I know that my laptop has a mPCIe slot for the wifi chip, which is what I plan to use got connecting said eGPU (Will be using usb wifi chip to regain wifi). However, very little info is available about the compatibility of external graphics cards for this laptop. I've read forums of a (weaker) laptop, the g75vw, and some people having successfully run cards such as the 780 ti/ 660ti etc.

I have already purchased the "beast EXP GDC v8.4d" PCIe dock in hopes of obtaining this feat. Due to recent terrible worldwide events, shipping will most likely be delayed for a couple of months, so I have time to research further. It's around $40USD.

I've heard that 1000 series (nvidia) cards will not run, due to driver incompatibility. However, I am looking to get a 900 series card, specifically, the 980 ti. Does anybody know if this card will work?

Also, my laptop has a thunderbolt 1 connection. Would this be a better choice?

Any help would be appreciated "

Thunderbolt would probably be better, but it would also cost a lot more and you're more likely to have compatibility issues if you go that route. However tbh, I would just say build a desktop - you'll get a lot more out of it than upgrading the g75vx.

People have done it with the g75vw using a mini pcie card (it's pcie 2.0 x1), which is basically an older version of the vx: https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthrea...with-gtx-750ti

If I remember correctly, I think it is because of the version of the program you are using / what program are you using / do you have administrator privilege?

Try running it on the C drive as well / the same drive as your windows installation.

I apologize for the late reply, I do still have the laptop and can check the monitor but i have to plug it in as I unplugged the connection from the main board to cut down on power draw to use for other things and have been using an external monitor.

Dave overclocked the CPU, it's a little bit longer process and hes better at explaining it than me but its been so long by now i'm not sure if either of us will do another round up.

If a lot of people are interested, maybe him and I can meet up some day and do some huge collab where we outline and detail everything and then properly backup and archive everything for you all

You could use liquid metal, just check the corrosion every 3 - 6 months, to a year and replace your cooler if it starts getting too worn (save the liquid metal, it's still good).

Just make sure to use conformal coating that Gamers Nexus always talks about and always squirt the liquid metal onto paper towels first, then spread onto a cuetip and then use that to apply a thin, but even layer onto your surfaces.

These are fine:
