525m overclock help?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I'm new to all this overclocking stuff. I know ya'll are fine experts at this sorta thing, and I would like to be taught (please?).

That being said, I want to make my GPU zippy without damaging my baby. I've overclocked it to where I have it now with absolutely no problems.

MSI afterburner limits me to a maximum core clock speed that I cannot pass. I know that the 525m is capable of handling even higher clock speeds than I have right now. Why can't I get there, and how can I get there?

What are your load temps? I wouldn't normally suggest overclocking a laptop more than a little.

In-game, it usually peaks around 70-75.

In Furmark, it reaches 85c after 15 minutes.

I overclocked mine to 800/1600/1000 from 600/1200/900 using Evga precision. Temps only went up 10c. I have Optimus enabled so it used the Intel video while i'm just cruising around the desktop to save power.

Disable turbo boost to lower your temps for about 10c ..
I overclocked mine stable to about 750 for the core ..

Use MSI Afterburner or EVGA Precision ( 960 MAX CORE OC ) !

Good luck smile.gif !

Question: Why is there a max oc limit? What determines it?

Heat mostly. It will start to artifact is the overclock is too high.

As I said disabling turbo boost in 2630QM will allow you to go far with your OC because it decrease the temp which limit the OC biggrin.gifbiggrin.gif !

guys i have a toshiba satellite lappy with 525m nvidia grpahics...the gpu is supposed to be decent for a laptop n ive seen benchmarks where u get 40 fps with crysys in medium settings but i always used to get in 20s...so i checked my gpu clockspeed and it was 475mhz whereas in most other laptops the same gpu is set at 600mhz and evn nvidia site says 600...wats the prob here? i tried overcloking it to 580mhz and it worked without artifacts and i got 43 fps in crysys...temps reached 80c..
and in furmark after 5 mins of burn in test it used to reach 75c in 475mhz n in 580mhz 5 mins it reached 85c and suddenlly laptop turned off without the shutdown screen....i started it again and reduced the clocks to usual and alls fine...
previosly i had oced it at 520mhz and there ws no heat prob either..
my question is:
1.why is the clock set so low when the recomended it 125 above that ?
2.since its set so low,is it safe to oc it to 600 mhz if i have a cooling pad to ease the temps?

Disabling Turbo Boost is a retarded idea. Not to sound insulting or condescending, but seriously, do you have any idea how much that cripples the i7?

Disabling it doesn't reduce temps. Getting a cooling pad does.
