Hello everyone,
I would like to request some help in getting an unlocked bios for my gaming laptop, the reason for it is to be able to control the fan speed and undervolt the cpu and gpu.
Here is specs:
Medio erazer x7833
i7 4710mq
gtx 970m
16gb ram
Bios brand: american megatrends inc
Bios version: E1763IM7.50V
Bios build: 03/11/2015
EC version: 1763EM71 Ver7.15
EC build: 10/08/2014​

Thanks in advance for any replies!​

To undervolt the CPU, try using Intel XTU or ThrottleStop. This can significantly reduce heat output so you might not need more fan speed to control heat.

Hello and thanks for answering, forgot to mention that xtu gives no readings and even ts has no control, that is why I want to unlock the bios. Also I'm not happy with the default fan profile, basically it lets the cpu cook at 88c and gpu at 78c when pushed to max, while with 100@ turbo fan enabled that pierces my ears is 76c cpu amd 68 gpu.

Unfortunately, as the only user here with (possibly) the skills to do this, I have to state I presently don't really have time for additional projects.

May I suggest the win-raid.com forums? Adding some cash donations may help with willing parties too (won't help with me unfortunately as it's more a time thing than a money thing).

I almost offended by that statement. But...admittedly I lack the experience. However...I'm quite certain I could figure it out if I had to.

Anyhow...I downloaded the BIOS found here, and I was able to open it with AMIBCP(AMI BIOS Configuration Program) 4.55.0070. So it looks as though it might be relatively easy to do some messing around with it.

Here's a guide to checkout on how to unlock AMI BIOSs.

And with that...I'm out. Good luck to you sir. Don't brick it!

What tutorial did you find on the MSI English forum? I have an account setup over there already(just logged in with no problem). If there's anything that can be downloaded I'd be happy to grab it for you and make it available here or somewhere else. Like my Google drive.

It's not this right?

UPDATE: So got help from Svet and now I have an unlocked bios! Undervolted the cpu and other stuff by -100mv and I got a -6c drop in cpu temps :)) Now the only thing left to do is undervolt the gpu as well and get some liquid metal :toast:

Given that it's likely a Clevo rebrand, if only Prema was still active on the notebook.review forums. At least Svet can still do something though.
