Overclocking ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5730 not working

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hey everybody,
I just recently tried to overclock gpu ( ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5730) in my Asus N71Ja and I encounterd some weird behaviour.

I used unlocked MSI Afterburner to raise core and memory clocks, I did it according to some tips found on internet (adding max. 20MHz at once and testing temperatures and 3DMark 2011 each time). And what is the problem? Nothing has changed. I went all the way to 840MHz core and 900MHz memory (stock is 650/800) and nothing has changed. Temeperatures through 3DMark 2011 remained the same and benchmark points too. (I used CPUID HWMonitor for watching temps). I checked the clocks in GPU-Z and they were there...

I also tried benchmark in F1 2012 game and there were no changes either
I also tried other oveclocking programs, like Trixx (gave me system crashes everytime i changed anything (even at 10MHz step),

does anybody have any idea? I have powerfull cooling pad so I don't worry about temps at this level

Thanks in advance

It's probably been hard coded into the chips so they don't actually change...

To be hones though, you really shouldn't try to overclock on a laptop like that.

It shouldn't be hard coded, because I read some threads over the internet about overclocking that graphic card

why not to overclock my laptop? As i said, cooling is not an issue and I don't want it for 24/7 gameplay

any thoughts? anyone?

i would avoid an overclock tbh. My laptop has an 6630m, and it was effort enough getting a custom bios for the i5 in it...and my GPU also wont let me change the clocks

Actually what's that application which lets you use the discrete GPU and the onboard GPU at the same time? That would be a better option.


Virtu MVP or something....

I don't have discrete gpu (disabled by manufacture), only ati

but my clocks should be changed, if gpu-z shows it, or am I wrong?

Hey zippaacc,


I joined mainly because of this aging thread of yours, but also because I poppin here periodically to view input. Anyway, just go here:

http://www.techpowerup.com/downloads/1641/AMD_GPU_Clock_Tool_v0.9.26.0_For_HD_5870.html

and download AMD GPU Clock tool for the HD 5770/5850M. The 5770 is 2 cards above our HD 5730, same card but gddr5 memory, and the tool works great for safely overclocking our cards. I have had mine safely overclocked to an HD5850 no problems. The tool is also relatively easy to use. Just set the engine/memory clocks to what you want, I usually set mine at 750X950 and I get a 3DMark 11 score of around 1600, but you can start lower; and have fun!
