Nvidia 640m LE Overclocking Possible?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I just got a Y480 laptop and I'm curious if it's possible to overclock the gpu at all? I've seen a thread on another forum for the sony vaio where guys were modifying the 640m's bios to run higher clocks, but none for the Y480. I've never owned a laptop before, so sorry if it's a dumb question.

I would not suggest trying to oc a gpu, or anything, in a laptop. They are usually only able to handle the heat that everything puts out at stock. Even then they get hot.

Unless they are also modding in extra fans or something.....

If you must you could maybe try to download afterburner and see if it will let you do anything with it.

The 640M LE in the VAIO S can be overclocked to 1000MHz from the stock 500MHz without any temperature difficulties, and that's with sony's ultrathin design. The Y480 will have plenty to handle the heat.

You do need a BIOS mod from tech|inferno though



Most folks at OCN is @nal about overclocking laptops, but it's actually safe to do so smile.gif

No, absolutely not.

What you can do is provide a BIOS dump and give it to Xonar or svl7



Good luck

I don't know why, but I just can't seem to dump my bios. I've tried using the windows and DOS versions of nvflash. After hitting enter to continue about 8 or so times the prompt will just close itself, same thing in DOS. It never offers me the chance to enter a command. Am I doing something wrong?
