Can I overclock my 330M?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have a new VPCF12 Sony Vaio. It comes with a 330M, I like it, but I was wondering if I can (Safely) overclock it. And if i could/did would I experience any benefit? I have never overclocked a GPU and a guide on how to do it, would be nice.

I would never OC a laptop GPU...

yes you can OC it... but laptops have very little cooling...

so you wont get any real benefit from OCing it

That's fine I guess...I just hope my pc will run games like ME, Ops, Source, Portal 2, DA2, etc just fine.

If it's a dedicated card with it's own heatsink and fan assembly within the computer, you'll be fine pushing it a little further and you'll know when the GPU is at it's limit.

If not, I wouldn't touch it. You might be able to push it another 50mhz but I wouldn't attempt any more than that.
