Sup TPU crew.
I have been using MSI afterburner lately for my Mobility Radeon HD 3650.
I already got a nice OC thanks to the "UNOFFICIAL OC" mode.
Is there another way to increase the max OC even further?

My laptop has proper copper cooling wit temps maxing at 80*C.
I am also using a OEM 135W AC adapter vs 60W (original AC adapter).

Cooling isn't a problem - just wanna push it till I get artifacts. :toast:

AMD Clock Tool might let you overclock higher. That's what I used to use when I did on my Dell Studio 1735 with a Mobility 3650.

You can get the latest version (which is still old, but so is the 3650,) here.

Thanks for the reply mate.
I already tried every other software and the only one that worked for my was MSI afterburner.

Lenovo has a dumb limitation in the main bios (which has the video bios integrated) that prevents any type of OCing.
Had to find a bugged older graphics driver from Lenovo to get Afterburner to work.

I have to figure out a way to lift the OC limits even further.
Editing the CFG directly with custom clocks doesn't work either - it just resets
