Predator Helios 300 has badly limited BIOS settings; unlock possible?

This laptop offers barely any useful BIOS settings. I read somewhere that someone was able to get a glimpse of advanced settings somehow with a Helios 300, but lost it upon reboot.

I decompiled the SetupUtility for my laptop and see there's tons of hidden settings available. Is there any way to unlock the settings for this laptop (aside from SPI reader + modded BIOS)?

    What kind of hidden settings for example? 
    Here's a video of the settings:



    I ended up using a hardware flasher and having someone over at Bios Mods create the BIOS. I also ran it through me_cleaner to remove Intel ME while I was at it (that's why the ME section in the video above has a bunch of broken values).
