help choosing stable driver for OC

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,
newbie here, in this forum and in overclocking world

I've read many tutorial for overclock in this forum and I decided to try it out.
the only thing I'm concern is the driver itself, is it really a "make or break" for this overclocking thing? if yes, which driver I should use to get a stable/optimal overclock?

btw, I'm on laptop, and my GPU is 280m
currently I'm using the latest driver 266.58, but I'm not sure that's the most stable driver for OC
so, any reply and suggestion would be very appreciated

thanks in advance guys!

There's not really such a thing as a stable driver for an overclock. The latest drivers are fine, and they've fixed multiple games for me

wow, thanks for quick reply
Ok then, I'll try to OC with this driver.
and I presume the OS would not have anything to do with stable OC as well, right? I'm using win7 pro 64bit

Your potential overclock capability depends mostly on the card itself. Every processor manufactured is different, and some overclock really well. Others.. well.. don't do it so well. It's the luck of the draw really

yeah, and I guess I'm not so lucky this time
I can only push my card to 590/985/1470 (c/m/s) whereas my stock is 583/950/1450
I can't even push my shader to the next strap which is 1500, it always gives me error on crysis benchmark and OCCT
but well, at least I got +1-2 FPS on crysis

btw, is there any program to monitor my GPU temp while I'm gaming in full screen mode?
I'm using gpu-z to monitor my temp, but it can't be used when I'm gaming full screen, can it?

thanks
