    Sometimes underclocking the CPU even helps with gpu temps since they can effect each other's thermals. I know both the Skylake and Kaby cpu have an unnecessary amount of voltage pushed to them at stock. You can see plenty of other users results and work from there, as this is not an official modification.

    Okay I can try to do a bit of undervolting, Saw a guide and some numbers from other blade 2016-1060 owner so I\ll give it a try =)

    Thanks for the help and sorry for the dumb question, I was sure I did the right EC fix but apparently, I didn't

    I did a -.100 undervolt to my Kaby Blade cpu and temps have dropped a TON to the point where the fan profile seems totally different. I hear them half as often. Very nice.

    Okay I've tried the same with my Skylake and so far I'm pushing quite a lot of (stable) frame on OW =)
    I'm actually considering buying a 144 Hz monitor cause I'm nearing 120-144 on High (So If I drop to a medium-high profile I should be able to get there quite well)

    Thanks for the help dude =)
     
  5. Ok, so I have been having trouble with random settings since throttlestop force update to 840... I forgot my original settings, but with the bios update I am getting on my internal monitor around 10233's with scores no lower than 10100... thats with o/c's of between 155/505 and 175/600, and throttlestop open with bdprochot and a few other settings on and off. I also have ASPM off in BIOS, and no undervolt, and I also have geforce uninstalled, and killer suite still installed, once I play around with settings and tweak a few other things ill update...

    I got a new Firestrike High Score on my Skylake GTX1060 RB.
    http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/20728716?
    10501
    OC +175/600 with AB.

    Unlocked Bios:
    ASPM off
    C state off
    RAM 2660
    UV -150mV (Core and Ring)
    UV -90mv (GT)
     
  8. How did you unlock your bios? Also how did you get c state off and oc the ram? Those are awesome scores by the way and thanks in advance

    @Prometheu5, I followed these instructions exactly.
    https://insider.razerzone.com/index.php?threads/razer-blade-2016-bios-mod.14368/

    But instead of selecting what options you want unlocked, there is one that unlocks all options.
    Show All Item as in the image below.

    First dump your bios following the instructions....then open the dumped Bios following instructions and change that option....Show All Item to Yes....Save as different name.
    Flash the Bios and voilá...
    Note: I didn´t use his modded Bios, just used my own but selecting show all.

    The main advantage other than tweaking to get higher benchmark scores....
    is the ability to undervolt in Bios instead of using software like throttlestop or xtu.

    Anyone has the complete and and concise guide on "How to UV your GPU". Please also list the bad things to avoid when UVing gpu.


    Edit: i want to also tweak the tdp limit andother things related here

    The Vbios in Pascal is signed, so you can´t flash a modded vbios on the card...only with a Bios Hard programmer, if you are up for that challenge. So TDP limit is locked also undervolting the GPU is locked as well.

    However, there is sort of a way to undervolt the GPU using AfterBurner.....in AB ctrl+F will bring up the voltage vs frequency graph. You can adjust the lowest value 800mV to the frequency you want, not too high.....and all the points after that the same value or below....so the graph will be flat...this way the GPU won´t draw more than 800mv.

    example....orginal voltage vs MHz curve
    [​IMG]

    making the curve flat....to draw max 800mv.

    However this works best with more powerful card that draws over .80V consistently....the GTX1060 frequently draws less, so this voltage lock won´t have as large as an effect. Perhaps AB will allow locking the voltage below .80V one day.

    ok, thanks for the suggestion. is there any way to track GPU voltage using AB? or do i need another utility apps?

    I use HWinfo64 to track the GPU voltage.
