Ah there we go, Stuttering. Have you recently upgraded your display drivers?

And it sounds like you want your computer to run cooler...is this during gaming? Because Thats going to be a tough thing to ask. Laptops get warm, something you cant really overcome.

As for 80c Thats not too hot at all, my 5870's hit 80's during the summer, low 60's during the winter.

I would try downgrading your drivers to the 10.10's (this is a the card in your Sig right?), to see if that helps with the Stuttering. The only other thing that would cause Stuttering other than drivers is overheating, which as you found out can be assisted with downclicking your GPU or buying a laptop cooler.

No, the thing in my sig is the pc gpu, I am now talking about the laptop gpu, a 8600m gs. Besides, it is winter now, but I do not see how that could make any difference since my living room is always at the same temperature.

AB has been suggested already, it's not what the OP is looking for.

Read through the thread before posting please.

I was just giving temps a a reference, and ok, well it sounds like its a heat issue then, because Im not too familiar with the nVidia drivers. I dont think its driver related.

80c isn't that hot for a laptop GPU though.

You could just be expecting too much out of that GPU. What res is the laptop at? And what are the specs of the laptop? What games you playing, with what FPS?

Sorry for the mess of questions, just trying to help out Haha

I wouldn't recommend ocing it if you plan to keep it cool, it'll bump up temps through the roof considering air flow. In regards to your laptop, I should mention that back when laptops with 8600m gs gpus were released, there were a lot of issues with the 8600m overheating. Only solution was to increase fan speed up to max and maybe get a laptop cooler. Whether the issue has been resolved since then (3years ago) or not, I have no clue. I don't have RV infront of me, but, I do remember that you can click on an arrow, then one of 4 possible options, then the fan tab and either set it to a stable speed or to vary with temps. Sorry can't help much

Let me see if I can find a tutorial on it with pics, it'll make much more sense that way Here you go: http://www.guru3d.com/article/rivatu...erclock-guide/
Should mention this is for doing fan profiles, but, you can just change the fan, check box to apply at windows startup, click save, click apply and then click ok, click ok to exit Enjoy!
