Entering Bios

I have an ASUS ROG GL551JW Gaming laptop.
Currently the bios running has a thermal throttle at 82 degrees, despite customer support telling me it can run to 95 degrees.
The GPU is a nvidia 960m, with CPU i7-4720HQ, running Windows 10.
I am wondering how it is possible to enter into the bios (or vbios) and increase the throttle temp myself?
Thanks Happy

Yes it runs to 95 but throttles sooner than that.

I realised i've left out a key bit of information. This throttling is on my gpu not cpu. Or are they both affected by the same throttling?

In reply to: GPU not CPU

The BIOS doesn't handle the GPU, only the CPU. It can't because the GPU is on a separate card, and you can't expect the BIOS to be programmed to handle all (current and future) videocards of all (existing and future) makers.

Check the user manual of your video card on how to influence that cooling and throttling.

Is the GPU handled by the Video Bios? Is there an easy way to change those settings?

In reply to: VBIOS?

The VBIOS, if you want to call it that, is the BIOS of the video card.

As I said in my previous post: check the user manual of your video card if you feel you need to update it or change settings. If settings can be changed, they should be in the video card control panel.
