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.
