Hi. Hi. Just want to anounce to all that 770m upgrade on asus G73SW is possible I am in process of instaling video driver now, will come back with benchmarks later. Also I am pretty sure 780m upgrade is possible to. Not sure of heat problems though. 770m I installed is from Dell and vbios modding is necessary to get upgrade.
i have orded a 780m it has a green pcb so im gessing it is a dell card am still wating for it to arrive. it do you think it may be able to flash asus 780m vbios? i have the heatsink cooling modded and ready to go (clevo hm heatsink cut to fit around g73jh heatsink & added an extra heatpipe) any thoughts??? i will let you know when the card arrives..
Really? Wow... I didn't knew that...Thought that since 770m was newer it was better! Do you have any advice on where to buy the GPU and CPU for a really bargain price? Also, there's no guide at all to refer to on how modifiyng the heatsink and installing the 680?
I tried once and flashed asus 780m vbios on my 680m just to se what happened and got black screen for about minute and just when I was to power off laptop gues what laptop posted and even loaded windows but clocks vere all borked ofcourse. Anyhow being that it was 680m I have big expectations that it would work with 780m. At least with minor modding to get everything works properly. Keep us updated.
Beside heatsink from older g73jh you dont need nothing more. Also you need to grind some places on new heatsink so it does not shortcut gpu board. Or you just can repaste and clean grill on 460m heatsink so you save money for new gpu.
