CLEVO BIOS Mods & Ami Modding Tools

RE: UPDATE 18 DEC: CLEVO P170HM3 (incl. Aptio MMTOOL and AMIBCP)

You can use XTU v3.0 with your P170HM3(3d-enabled) laptop. You can find the .msi setup from Intel's website.

Please note: You have to uninstall XTU 2.1 (if it is installed on your system) and reboot. And then go to Device Manager and click Show Hidden Devices on View Menu. There should be an IOCBIOS with yellow exclamation mark. You should uninstall & reboot aswell.. After this, you can install v3.0

DUDE, if that works for you kindly share your bios here!!! Angel

XTU can not work, because the P170HM3 bios lacks support.
There is no "IOCBIOS" non plug & play device either.
XTU 3.0 shows the logo and just hangs there.

After i wrote that message i noticed that XTU 3.0 can run just limited with Monitor screen.. The manual tuning screen is completely disabled. I can not change anything.

XTU 2.1 locks as you said on the logo screen for a looong time and after that gives an error "The service could not be contacted".

XTU 3.0 is OK but the main feature is disabled Sad

IOCBIOS Non-PnP device is the key for XTU. If you do not see IOCBIOS(or IOCBIOS2 for XTU 3.0) you reinstall XTU.. Or manually install the IOCBIOS with using the driver included in Program Files\Extreme Tuning Utility.
There is also another device is needed which is Intel Watchdog. This is also included in XTU's installation folder.

Ah...got my hopes up (again Angel) that we got an XTU bios...

If we would just have a way to dump the NVRAM...but even AMI SCE 2.01.0028 doesn`t work on our bios...Dodgy

EDIT: UPDATED OP WITH AMIBCP 4.53

RE: UPDATE 14 JAN: CLEVO P170HM3 (incl. Aptio MMTOOL 4.5 & AMIBCP 4.53)
I am completely new to modding BIOS, so please excuse me if this seems like a stupid question. I have a P170HM (non-3d) and updated to BIOS .10 and EC .09 from the Clevo FTP. The problem I am having is that my 2920XM is only running at 2.5Ghz during the stress tests and will not go up to the multiplier of 42 or even to the stock turbo of 3.5Ghz. I am trying to enable XTU functionality (mostly to run the auto tune). Will the updated BIOS .10 from the first post fix the XTU or brick my machine. Any other advice about what I need to do to get my machine running well is appreciated also.

If you have the NON 3D with BIOS 1.01.10 and EC 1.00.09 then you can just install Intel XTU software and have fun! Wink

You should use XTU 2.1, version 3.0 won't work on your laptop.

Stress tests never initiates Turbo mode.. Intel has a desktop gadget tool to monitor Turbo Mode status. You can install it observe the actual freq. of your CPU

Or, if you wish to stick with XTU, i recomend you compress a lot of files to 4-5 RAR archives with Filename encryption is enabled. While doing this, you can see your CPU is going higher than 2.5Ghz i think.

Still, I can not find a way to add XTU Support to BIOS.

But I figured out to run my HyperX's @1600Mhz with the exact specs of XMP on mu P170HM-3D Smile

Just keep in mind that the system will refuse to boot if we force it to use one of the XMP profiles and put in a RAM without XMP later on...leaving failsafe on "auto" won`t do a thing in this case...learned it the hard way. Angel

Ya missing XTU is giving us a hard time...if at least the bios wouldn`t override the cpu multis back from custom values to auto even for XM CPUs.
AMISCE for Aptio can`t dump the NVRAM either...
