@Prema: what about ME for w230st ?
Is there any update ? Also, do you know which version of Intel's ME driver does the best with latest bios ?
P370EM, bios V2
Yeah, as it is unusual, I added the beep and remove PSU info for everyone into the updates readme...THX!
One last question, your 05 bios version is only 4MB, while the one from clevo ftp is 6MB, do you happen to know the difference ?
Cheers and thank you again !
Good to know, thx.
I now remember why I despise the Clevo version.... "dat style note".
I'll have to bear with it until your modded one comes out or when Sager releases their own version. Never had problems with flashing different vendors so shouldn't be an issue at all.
EDIT: Oddly enough, my W230ST went up a full 8C since the BIOS update.I shall check if something is wrong since it used to idle 48-52C.
EDIT2: So before, when running all 4 cores, I could achieve the 3.4GHz frequencies under all tests. Now I can only hit 3.0 GHz on 4 cores, but 3.4GHz on 1 active core. Not sure why this is... even with throttlestop forcing 34T multipliers, its still at 3.0GHz. Temperature issue fixed itself... its back at 52C. I guess when running on battery, the fans clearly dont give a damn.
EDIT3: I might be switching back to my original BIOS... I want full control over all 4 cores again.
EDIT4: Further testing, benchmark tools WILL NOT bring my cores to 3.39-3.4GHz. However, playing games and doing CPU intensive tasks that aren't benchmarking or CPU burn-ins will bring it to those values on 3-4 active cores... the hell? Someone answer ;P
@Prema: You should kindly fix a version of the stock BIOS that doesn't have the cruddy Stylenote screen... I'll donate right away. Even a simple swap to a Sager screen would be nicer.

I have a couple of question about your bioses. Actually I have a P170em with a 3630qm, 8GB of 1866 corsair vengeance, a Crucial M4 256MB as primary and a 320GB as secondary, running W8 fine.
My bios was 1.02.17 ans EC 1.02.12. I tried to update to you V2 bios K2/2T and couldn't manage to have it boot. Actually It seems that it cannot find the M4 SSD, and got BSOD.
I think I tried all combinations of uefi, non uefi, ahci, ide mode...
I have to revert to 1.02.17 stock that is working fine in ide mode, but this configuration is not working with your mod.
Do you have any clue? I would be happy to run your bios for some reason, the unlocking of the BLK is one of them and more globally the XTU support.
Thanks anyway for your work, clevo should retribute you for this work as it makes their laptop quite more enjoyable...
I installed p370em k2 bios. All went well and it shows v2 into the bios info with your boot logo, but no custom options thats you added.... All the options are still the same, am i missing something?
I wanted to say Thank You! Prema for your great work! After buying my first clevo i will be asking alot of questions ^^
I have been reading alot about the new clevo´s with 4700mq & 8970m
but i cant find any post about someone successful overclocking the 4700mq.
does someone have a link for me with overcloking results?
