I'm overclocking gpu for first time - Page 2

post #11 of 16
If you can clean the air vents out on the laptop.
Should bring the temp down a bit but you will always be at a cooling disadvantage since BF3 will be heating the CPU and GPU up hence why you have a high temp.
Personally I wouldnt want to run over 85C but in the end its up to you. 90C should be fine if your only going to keep the laptop for 1-2 years and dont play BF3 non-stop.

Yeah by non-stop I mean every waking hour,
Got a few friends that play 8-10 hours a day, If your doing that with 90C temp Id expect your laptop to only last 6 months.
But if your only playing 1-2 hours a day then should last 2 years but you would probably need to drop your overclock eventually or re-do all the thermal compound and clean out the heat sinks other wise the temp will just keep going up.

Yeah 90C is not far from the point of boiling for water. lol. Also, how do I get that nice thing in my SIG As a FX owner?
