Thinking about CoolBits

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Shall I dare venture into laptop oc'ing?

Too much risk involved?

EDIT: I meant ClockGen for CPU oc'ing.

Coolbits does NVidia gpu's. I couldn't get it to stick the settings with mine. RivaTuner is a bit more robust.

Most that I know have to flash the gpu.. it's not without risk though.

I meant ClockGen.

Man... I'm not thinking clearly.

Be careful with it.
I tried to use ClockGen, but it hard-froze my laptop and almost fried it.
Maybe it's because I tried to change one of the registers or something stupid.
The i945GM chipset's PLL chip isn't among those listed, AFAIK.
