Hey there Fellow ROG G551JW users,

As we all know we had the problem of GPU being locked at 78 Degrees. There is a modded BIOS that you can flash for getting GPU temps unlocked till 82 degrees.
Also Voltground had files for 89 degree GPU setting with clocks unlocked for GTX 960m [Works for both 2gb and 4gb version]. Unfortunately VOLTGROUND has its website closed and Many people have PM'd me for these moded files. So here i am Posting all of it in an orderly manner.

Hello there! I've been away for a long time and I would like to thank @AssassinJohn for making this files available. I have a lot of PM's regarding the G501vw model and for what I know there ain't many differences about them. To remove the Throttling lock you need to change this values in hex in the vBios as seen in the image attached.
