Small question in 5870m clocks

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
My first post here. Sorry if its in the wrong section.

I am doing my first overclocking and trying out my Mobility 5870 in my laptop.
The default clocks are 700/1000 and I increased it to 835/1110 with 48c idle.
So is that over doing it and what temperature should I "BEWARE" when overclocking. I'm not really sure whats dangerous.

Pretty much every video card out there is 100-105C max. might be different on laptop though.

It's the load temperature that you might to watch out. You can try running application or games to check the full loading temperature.

BTW, I wouldn't overclock that GPU, might heated real quick with the limited heatsink and might cause throttling to prevent the card from damage. Sign of throttle, stuttering, graphical glitches and texture flickerings.

If you can maintain your full load temperature at 75-80°C, you should be fine at that clocks. Otherwise I would backdown to default speed.

Yeah i took it to 840/1200 for a while and under load it was 78c - 85c but had some artifacts on screen so i dimmed it down.
Now i have no glitches/artifacts and load around 70c-80c

yeah if you see artifacts you just have to lower the clocks a little, VRAM usually causes them, the GPU clocks cause instability usually with my experience. those temps are fine.

That's the sign of instability and time to backdown though temperatures are still fine. Avoid crash/BSOD if all possible.

Good to hear I'm in the positive! I don't have the money for a desktop for some serious overclocking... So I have to settle with this laptop with a mobile GPU that is limited due to cooling.
