Y510p Bios mod, Best unlocked bios settings.

Im starting this thread so that for all who have unlocked their bios for wirelesscard whitelist removal or what ever, using the link on techInferno using svl7 mod can have a guide as to what settings can be used to improve the performance of their y510p and what settings to stay away from.  For those who have difficulties in retrieving the files from techInfernos website can pm me.

 

Any and all suggestions and requests are welcome. Happy modding.

I would do this, but after paying £1000 for this laptop, that risk of bricking the bios..

Re: Y510p Bios mod, Best unlocked bios settings.

Based on my research the bricking may be a bit harder, (thanks to lenovo) and there is a method of bringing back bioses after being bricked. http://edmarhobby.blogspot.com/2013/02/lenovo-ideapad-y580-insyde-bios-reset.html confirmed works on y510p.

Re: Y510p Bios mod, Best unlocked bios settings.

I have the first suggestion, Disable BD PROCHOT. If you notice during games or intensive gpu tasks when the gpu gets over about 75c, that the cpu throttles to about .77 or .8 ghz (i7-4700mq). it is because of this setting. othe synptoms include, slow operation, frame rate loss, laggy after a few minutes of gameplay.

I have tried the fan control settings in the bios, but according to my experience there is no change as the fan control is not based on the bios even tho there are options for it in there.

Re: Y510p Bios mod, Best unlocked bios settings.

I just want fan control to help with the heat Smiley Sad i don't get FPS drops Smiley Happy.

I spoke to mumak couple months ago, asking if he could exploit something in the EC or Power management, he said for fan control, it would take complete disassemble of the EC, which he said is overkill Smiley Sad.

Re: Y510p Bios mod, Best unlocked bios settings.

ok read that too, so that was you... i have heat issues too, 98c isnt anything for my pc to accomplish would love to keep this below 90. i have disabled 2 cores and undervolted, (downgraded my i7 to an i5). since that ive have longer battery life and less throttling

Re: Y510p Bios mod, Best unlocked bios settings.

Yupp that was me lol Smiley Happy. Mine hasn't reached 98c Smiley Surprised mine reaches 94c max. My ultrabay card seems to throttle quite a lot tho, max of 96% usage, while the intergrated 755m chip does 88%-90% Smiley Frustrated

Re: Y510p Bios mod, Best unlocked bios settings.

Hi I have the same problem, the only thing is my wifi card is dead, I need to replace it and finding the ones on the whitelist is so much pain.

@shfearon, can you please send the mod files so I can buy a widely up to date wifi card for my y510p?

Thank you so much
