Howdy lads,

Just curious about laptop overclocking. I tried a bit with my last laptop with the AMD APU A8 4500m and it worked rather well and gave pretty good performance boost ^^

How would I go about overclocking an Nvidia GPU? and would it be safe to do so?

Cheers lads.

You could probably use MSI Afterburner to do it.

Nvidia Inspector too.

~800mhz? consider a near 100mhz overclock giving ~10% performance, so 40fps to 44fps, decide if that's worth it

just watch the temps as usual, avoid raising voltage

my msi laptop came with some overclock tool... never tried it

800mhz?? Did I miss something? :p
I was doing some searchs regarding the overclocking of this 860m and they can be pushed very high it seems.
Some guy overclocked the core +280mhz and 800mhz memory! Not too bad if ya ask me, it beats the 870m in benchmarks and the temps remain at 76c on high load.

I would have to flash the gpu but I never done anything like that before and it sounds dangerous to bother with it :/ I can only get 135mhz on the core and will have to flash it to get more control over it. I dunno what to do

Here's a link to the site: http://forum.notebookreview.com/gaming-software-graphics-cards/751352-860m-beast.html

Browse through it all if possible as it's quite interesting to read. It all depends on the components used that'll allow you to reach 800mhz on the memory and even over 325 core clock. But he can get it stable at 325 on the core and 700mhz on the memory! SO damn impressive and sadly for me, there isn't any vBIOS yet for my XMG A504 :(

Mine is locked at 135mhz on the core but it does give a 4-5 fps bonus and 1 degree hotter :p My temps stay at 58-60c which I think is impressive ^^

Of course they (mobile GPU) can be overclocked massively; why do people insist upon stating the outdated 4-5 fps increase? Or 100mhz? I've overclocked my mobiles up to +350mhz core for 4-5 years now, and gained up to 20 fps, so, people, do your research before not-helping. Thank you! :)
