Except for the fact that some people like to game on the road. Enjoy taking ur desktop on the plane. I'm so tired of fools bashing gaming laptops. Of course you can build gaming desktops that are more powerful for cheaper but as stated before, have fun lugging it around.

On a side note, it's not the act of ocing that causes damage, it's the heat. Control the heat and you control the damage. And Ryko, do you not oc your desktop? Because by your standards you shouldn't have, instead you should have just put together a better rig. Since when did this go from overclock.net to mommyimscared.net?

I did not know there were so many ocing newbs on here:

Q9200 2.4ghz quad mobile @ 2.93ghz (undervolted from 1.1675v to 1.1v)
HD6770m 725/900 (GDDR5) -> 850/1125 (overvolted from 1.05v to 1.1v)

Considering I game at 1080p it makes a large difference.

I own the Asus G74SX as well, with the GTX 560m 3GB win 7 64.

My reason to overclock would not be gaming but video editing with Adobe Premiere and Cyberlink Powerdirector 10 ultra.

I notice you overclock it up to 20%. Should I do this taking the video editing in consideration or do the cons win?

Yeah if the temps stay low, why would you not OC a mobile gpu...? Am I missing something? Mine runs fine at 900 / 1800 / 1450 with MSI AB

This is at stock voltage, and the temps overclocked are identical to at stock.

hey all I have a new computer very nice build laptop beats my desktop hands down. What could I overclock my GPU and what should I use to do it? I am told keeping it under 70c is best. Right now its running 50c.

Use Msi Afterburner to overclock, then use games to test if it's stable or not "On Max Settings".

my cores right now are running at 40C is it safe to leave these as is, or would overclocking them help with gaming?

Overclock the hell out of it! devil.gif, but do so with a cooling pad, in my experience, cooling pads really do a great job to take off 10c or more.... Your temp is still on the good side. This is my 660m overclocked settings. It was 835Mhz core clock, but i flashed it to a modded bios that comes with 1000Mhz. Which means i moved from 835-1220Mhz on the core.




it's a little on the High heat side (69-78c MAX "stress testing"), but it's not going to harm the GPU. I started with gaming laptops before i moved on to build my first gaming rig so i know a lot about mobile Gpu's... My first Dell xps 17 3D gaming Laptop came with a 550m GPU, and i over-volted and overclocked it to the MAX... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hewd2vi7QhA. It got a 3d mark 11 P graphics score of 1825.

If you can find places online for over-volting your 560m do so. Mobile Gpu's can be pushed wayy higher than their stock clocks. I see lots of people saying not to overclock Mobile Gpu's due to heat issues tongue.gif... That's false for Gaming laptops. I have always overclocked my mobile Gpu's and nothing ever goes wrong, ever.... I just sell them on craigslist when something more powerful comes out and add a little extra money wink.gif.
