Run 9800M GS as 9800M GTS?

I'm not sure if I'm supposed to post this in graphics card section or the mobile laptop sections. I have the Asus g50vt-x5 with the 9800M GS chip. I remember reading somewhere that you can flash the bios or something to make the card run at 9800M GTS speed. Can anyone confirm this or link me the post? Thanks I will keep searching though.

  1. Hmm ... I am looking for more info on flashing the 9800M GS to 9800M GTS b/c I read somewhere that the 9800M GS is actually 9800M GTS (hardware wise) but the bios is 9800M GS to cool it down so it is actually underclocked.
  2. Update:

    I finally found it,

    http://forum.notebookreview.com/asus-gaming-notebook-forum/357807-guide-flash-9800m-gs-gts.html

    now my only question left: is it safe? In terms that the 9800M GS I currently own is actually the 9800M GTS underclocked.
  3. How much better of a performance boost do you think? And also right now I have 50-60C Idle on the 9800M GS and 80-90C Full load while playing games. How much of the temperature differences do you think it would make if I flashed to 9800M GTS
  4. Is it possible to put thermal paste on Laptop GPUs to help cool them?
  5. Thanks a lot man I will try after finals. I also have another problem. When I plug my headset into my laptop (Asus G50VT-X5) there is a loud buzzing sound ... and when I talk into my mic the people on the other end can hear the buzzing sound from my mic. I believe that it's the problem with the jack, any solutions? I did a little research and apparently all laptops are like that?

    Presumably, you have something plugged into the USB ports just above the three sound jacks. In my case, I had a mouse plugged in which was causing the interference. Try unplugging the device from those ports and see if the buzzing is still there (you can plug them in the other USB ports).

    Also, some devices create less interference than others; I tried connecting an external keyboard to the notorious USB ports and still had no interference so you can try something like that. Hope this helps.
