Nvidia GT 525m Overclocking help

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I have a dell xps15 (L502x) with i5 2430m processor
I have been following some guides on you tube to overclock it using msi afterburner
but my core clock wont go above 600MHz? what is wrong?
i can set it to more but it just resets back to 600MHz when i run Furmark?
also what are the safe temps for the 525m

Do not, i repeat DO NOT overclock a mobile video card.
Its just wrong and may end damaging it

Dont listen to this guy,
I not only overclocked my gtx 260m, i volt modded it so i could over clock it more, and i overclocked the cpu to 3ghz(stock 2.53 c2d)
Download MSi afterburner and increase the clocks a bit at a time and stress test with 3dmark or uni heaven. also check out notebookreview
VERY helpful people over there and its a laptop site thumb.gif

Are you saving the oc settings to a profile and applying them at startup? Simply moving the sliders without saving them to a profile will do nothing and would explain why they reset when you run Furmark. My Asus G53JW's 460m oc'ed to 800/1600/1500 no problem. I use this just as an example that mobile gpu's can be oc'ed. Your laptops cooling will be the deciding factor. Asus ROG laptops have exceptional cooling.

Maybe try EVGA Precision. I noticed in my dell L401x that I can only OC my 420m to 650MHz core on Afterburner, but in Precision, I can OC it to 800MHz. It doesn't change the core voltage of the chip so your maybe only going to see a 1-2C increase in temps, nothin big. The mobile series chips seem to be good overclockers.

However, I can overclock my 420m to a 550m speed but it only increases my gaming performance by like a few %, nothing like the 60% overclock that I can achieve. Kinda disappointing...
