Hard to know if you did anything wrong.

Did you try another application? evga precision? Nvidia inspector?

I think you are out of luck without changing and flashing the bios...honestly, to me, it's not worth the 1-3% you MIGHT gain.

I'm worried about a laptops ability to manage the increased heat, as well as the risk of flashing in general...particularly on a laptop as you can just use a different gpu to flash again.

As I said earlier in the thread, you need to capture the bios using gpuz. Then you need maxwell bios editor to change some values (nkt sure what they are without seeing it).

Please continue to post in public.. it's a holiday here in the states so I may not be able to get to your thread soon. I'm also typing from a phone so it's difficult to spoonfeed these instructions. :(

Best i can do for now: https://www.google.com/search?q=hkw...droid-verizon&sourceid=chrome-mobile&ie=UTF-8

The reason you cannot read it is is because the GPU is not a removable graphics card. Some laptop models can have their graphics cards replaced (Alienware, Clevo/Sager, MSI). The Y700 has the GPU soldered on the motherboard. Therefore the motherboard BIOS also contains the video BIOS (or VBIOS). The BIOS from the laptop would have to be modded to get over +135MHz on the GPU clock on your graphics card. So unless you hire someone to do or can find a modded BIOS you are stuck where you are at.

I couldn't make much more on my 960M. You could try and flash it but if you make it wrong then you won't be able to fix it. +135MHz is like 1400MHz max boost. It's a good frequency. Desktop cards without additional mods can't make much above 1500MHz.
