Overclocking GT 650M?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Just wondering if anyone could provide some information on overclocking the 650M. I currently have 80-85 degree temps while playing and im worried about it getting too hot. I just want more FPS and dont care about increasing the graphic quality. Can anyone suggest anything?

I'm guessing the suggestion of replacement isn't really helping?

Otherwise no mate, your temps are already pushing quite high and overclocking it could risk permanent damage. It will certainly degrade the laptop a lot quicker.

I wouldn't worry about it too much. Just overclock and see what temps you get. My 6970M runs at 94*C when I've got it overclocked. tongue.gif Apparently the owner before me had the same overclock and had been running it like that for a good year. Still runs fine at the moment.

And the 650M is known for staying crazy cool even after overclocking. You should be able to hit around 1GHz core with almost any 650M. That's no joke either.

Frankly you shouldn't be let loose on anyone elses hardware other than your own. That includes giving recommendations.

Whilst laptops are designed/tend to get hotter, letting a GPU run at the best part of 100c is stupid. Ignoring the fact that it "Runs fine at the moment" The increased temps will cause micro-fractures in the solder on the board and cause instability at a later date.

So your argument to me is that overclocking a GPU in a laptop is the worst possible idea known to man and honestly, truthfully, believe that overclocking the 650M will cause a rise of 15*C with no research or clue? Really dude, I'd look around before trying to argue. I know what temps to expect and how little overclocking affects those increases.

He wants higher FPS. So I gave him that option. The ASIC quality checks you can do on Nvidia GPUs also show the ENTIRE GT 650M line being no lower than 95% at worst. With this in mind, even running borderline 100*C, these GPUs will perform for extended durations when needed.

Have you looked into using a notebook cooler? If you aren't very mobile, you could also take off the laptop's bottom panel. I did that and used a notebook cooler on my N61Jq laptop. It used to run in around 90 C under load (and burn my left fingers), but now it only hits a max of high 60 C.

The gt 650m seems to have a limit of "+135" core overclock (in MSI afterburner and nvidia inspector) whenever I try, but people have managed to overclock higher somehow.

Use Nvidia Inspector to do your overclocking. It lets you push higher. smile.gif

somehow, i get BSOD every time i click view system info in nivdia control panel. used to be worse, it would BSOD every time i opened nvidia control panel. nothing bad happens, just BSOD and then i have to restart lol
