Best Overclock Settings for Nvidia GT 740M?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
So I just bought a customized HP laptop with an Nvidia GT 740M. I was wanting to overclock the GPU and I cant seem to find some overcloking settings. I have MSI Afterburner installed but I am unsure of which settings are safe for my laptop.

Also I was wondering how I can change the settings on MSI Afterburner so that the Core Clock shows in MHz and not in +1, etc.

Thanks

I am planning to buy the same laptop also. I am wondering if it is possible to disable the dedicated graphic in the bios. Can you look it up for me please?

Why would you want to do this? If the laptop supports optimus, the dedicated graphic card will be disabled when on battery or you can selectively choose to use the nvidia card in the nvidia software. If you really don't want to use the dedicated graphic csrd, HP has plenty of laptops without a dedicsted graphic card.

I don't really want the nvidia graphic, but I also want to future proof my laptop since it is configured close to $1000. I prefer bios control is because it is software independent and "better in a sense to me, more stable." It is not a big deal, just curious overall.

If you want to overclock the 740m, do so without

what is the hp model? touching any voltages. Increaing the gpu voltages will increase the total laptop tdp, which in return might prevent the cpu from going to turbo as often or cause the gpu to throttle more often.

What is the hp laptop model? Customized hp doesn't tell us much.

You want to push the memory clock as far as it can go while being stable. That will give you the best performance.

My laptop has the 740M but I still can't seem to run games very well. Are there any settings I need to use or something? I mean its a gaming laptop so it should be able to run games.

The 740M is an entry level GPU. Don't expect beyond GTX 260-level performance on a good day.

Keep FXAA off and keep the shadows on low. The rest is up to you to experiment with...

What are the core clock and memory you have now the default on your video card? Use the progam Nvidia Inspector. Slider to change the core clock move to the right. This will give the 135 MHz on the core. Games will run faster. Memory, we need to watch what you have now frequency. Put here your screenshot from the GPU-Z.
