650M Help

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So I've been trying to overclock my GPU, and so far it's going pretty bad.
It starts to throttle every time it reaches above 67C, meaning every time I go to play a game it starts throttling within a few minuets; making the game almost unplayable.
I'm running an Alienware M14x R2 and was wondering if any of you could tell me of anyway to stop this from happening?

Thanks

Page 87 through 90.

Are you sure the fan is working? Do you have the air vents open, not blocked in anyway? Have your tried blowing any possible dust buildup out of the system?

Has the system been used heavily around smokers? If so, you may need to pull it apart and clean it good... it can build up a layer of sticky brown goo... that can really impact thermal performance.

Have you tried using it with one of the "Laptop Coolers"? They can help a lot... really enhance airflow.

I don't see anyway to turn off throttling, and probably not recommended anyway... it is there to protect your CPU. Sounds more like an airflow issue.
