Are you sure you're using the 1.70? Everybody's fine with that bios. When did you install it?
I'm playing battlefield 3 for more than 3 hours in a room where the temperature is pretty much high, the CPU temperature gets 97'C the GPU gets 73'C with the clocks 920/1600 Mhz and there's no throttling. It's the only Bios after 1.10 which hasen't the throttling. Did you try the 1.10??
What are the temperatures of your GPU/CPU?
Well that's strange. I'm playing BF3 for more than 3 months... and i got the throttling in every bios except 1.10 and the new 1.70.
I don't think that it's broken.. Maybe you did something in software...i don't know maybe tried some applications which shouldn't? If not, check the fun.
Maybe the fan doesnt work correct? Is it loud when you play?
Confirm throttling with 1.70 as well... Model is x770-10m, tested on LA Noire and Deus Ex with Nvidia 295.73 drivers. Framerate drop is less worse than with previous versions but still there. Worked perfectly fine with 1.10 (my laptop came with it). Seems to kick in when GPU temp. reaches 80°C.
Hm that's different model than mines. I have the x770-107, my GPU never goes above 73'C even after hours of gameplay of BF3. BTW i have these games(LA NOIR and Deus Ex), i'll try them and tell you the results)
As usual, thank you for trying new BIOS update 77leon77. Finally something useful from Toshiba
Regarding GPU temp, I remember that I hit without any problem around 75-78C running bios 1.1 with afterburner (900/1800/1600) with a zalman cooler while playing games like Crysis and Battlefield. But I was expecting high temperatures with OC system.
Anyway, I will keep checking with 1.70 BIOS but it would be much easier if there is a single official data what is the threshold between "normal" and "high" temperature...
Also guys, one off the topic and a bit silly question , how do You remove dust from the fans since I have never done that on laptop....what is the best and easiest method?
To remove the dust, I usually just blow some compressed air through the vent. You can buy a Can of compressed air from electronic shops. I avoid using a vacuum cleaner since they can generate too much static electricity and may damage the notebook.
You're welcome guys) We're on the same team)) have the same piece of hardware and tryin to get the best out of it)))
Well, just finished testing Deus Ex and LA Noir, and after hours of gameplay with bios 1.70 and Nvidia certified 295.73 drivers i had no throttling at all. Max temps i got on these games were 65-68'C.
About the dust, neither do i have cleaned it, but in the future want to clean it with a simple vacuum cleaner, but now, after reading your posts, I'm afraid a little)))))
