I overclocked my ATI Radeon 9000 from 238.5MHz to 301.5MHz core speed and from 389.25MHz to 443.26MHz memory speed. And my PC is a laptop. How long before you think it'll melt down? HAHAHA

Well... I overclock my laptop's video card too. I understand it is even riskier than it would be on a desktop. I only apply the overclocked settings when I run a game though. Still, I think the laptop is going to die one day, hehehe. At least I will enjoy it


Adrenaline rush! Adrenaline rush!

PS.- Funny thing is, my laptop's card overclock a lot more better than my desktop's before showing artifacts. Funny, hehehe.

actually as long as i keep the heatsink clean it rarely cranks the fan to full speed, it usaully runs on low or medium and i can put my hand up to the exhuast and its not even that hot. now if the heatsink gets clogged with dust, the fan runs higher and the exhuast is noticibly warmer. plus i have it set on top of 2 additional fans that cool the underside of my laptop, where a large amount of heat would gather. the bottom of the unit now is barely even warm. i think the additional fans will keep the temperature at a safe level.
