OCing a 8600M GS with 179.48

I seem to be having some issues with overclocking my laptop's 8600M GS so I can run Left 4 Dead better.

I've tried using ATITool, RivaTune, and nTune. All have failed to make my OC stick. I can however change the clock of the low power mode for the card. As soon as I load up a full screen game though it goes to high power which is set to 400mhz/400mhz.

Any ideas on what drivers I should be using or how to get this OCing to work?

No... Lol.

It was the version of firmware I was using.

I now have it overclocked to 650/550 and it runs fine, doesn't get above 75C even after hours of testing.
