Hello everyone, 
Does this VBIOS applies to my msi GL72 6QF laptop ? Fans are quite noisy.. My bios and firmware are fully updated and i just installed my new ram HyperX impact 16 GB 2133mhz. My ram must overclock itself but it runs a liitle bit slower, like 2128 mhz, So each module runs at 1064,4 mhz or close. What are the best vbios settings for my laptop ? Could you guys help me out to get the max out of my machine for gaming? I'd really appreciate that ! If anny other modifications must be done, i'd be happy to here them from experts in tuning your rig. 
My laptop specs are : http://www.materiel.net/ordinateur-portable/msi-gl72-6qf-856fr-136035.html

Thank you !

Yet another user..
Read the title. This applies ONLY to desktop graphics cards. And only to GTX970/980.

I have had my gtx970 since 2014 and it just started doing the "spin up every 30 seconds while idle" a few days ago, this fix still applies?

Pulled serial from cpu-z:

Thank you :)

What GTX 970? Add S/N and a copy of the current vbios (not some number columns that are no real vbios version)

I have a 980 4G since march 2015. The airflow in case is fairly restricted, however card was constantly staying at reasonable 43 degrees at idle and reaching 76 on max load. Recently (2 weeks ago) I was cleaning PC, disassembled PC, assembled everything back again with no changes whatsoever (no hardware/software changes). After that, for some reason, card started to go above 43. On first startup after reassembling it reached 50 while idling, then fan turned on, brought it back to 40 and since then the card is always fluctuating between 40 and 45. Reaches 45, active frozr turns on one fan to 30%, cools down to 40, turns off and then during 10-15 minutes it goes up again to 45, and so on. Max temperature on load is completely the same as before(!). Any ideas on why has the idle temp risen and fan profile is so weird?

Edit: I have considered flashing bios, but now completely lost because of my S/N
S/N: 602-V317-100B1412088095
BIOS: NV317MH.113

Your post has obviously nothing at all to do with the topic "Fix for GTX970/980 Fans Randomly Turning On issue". This isn't a vbios update thread nor is it about gpu temps after reassembling. The temps are fine anyway. If you want to discuss anything about your card or you need help open an own thread.
