    oc 1 thing at a time (oc ram-find max then oc core-find max, or vice versa) increasing in small increments 5mhz-10mhz, after every increment scan for artifacts using the built in tester, all the while keeping an eye on your gpu temps.

    this should get you started as im no expert G/L

    Don't give someone advice on how to overclock their laptop. It's a laptop people, they have poor ventilation and small heatsinks, it would barely be able to overclock before it burns up.

    Unless you want to buy a new laptop, don't try to overclock it.

    I agree with Turbopsi. I doubt it will overclock enough to get any noticable performance gain, and the extra heat generated could shorten the lifespan of your laptop.
