most if not all graphics cards can be over clocked via software and if not then you can just use a BIOS editing program and boot into DOS from a USB flash drive.


if you do change the BIOS make sure that its not a huge OC to begin with, as leo27 said heat is a real big issue with the laptop, along with the battery life reduction. if anything under clock it by a few MHz for when its on the battery as your not really going to be doing to much gaming. then when switching to DC Over clock it to the desired rate ( within its means of course )


I was trying to discourage him, as it is not something for a novice to attempt. I know it is slow here in the forum but I didn't want him to mess his laptop up :roleeyes

an update on how the Over clocking on the 9600GT went before the MoBo arched onto it... it was running at these speeds for well over a week, with stock clocking when Multi-boxing WoW.

also i decided about a week ago to change the stock cooling device to a Zalman VF1000 Copper Heat Pipe VGA Cooler with separate memory heat sinks and a 120mm fan flowing across the whole card.

i agree, however we all have to start somewhere...
if the laptop is all he has and buying a new desktop is out of the question, then might as well do something incremental... to get a feel for whats to come in the future...


lordirecto i strongly agree with yeshaus and Leo27, you really should start some where there is a bit better airflow, and less of a change to ruin your computer. IE a desktop PC.

What case do you have Andrew does it have good airflow on its own

i have the ABS Canyon 695, and a COOLER MASTER Stacker 830, i would say yes they have good airflow... i like the ABS more, however the price is too much, it was a once in a life time thing for me.

I use Lian Li for the same reason, my system I do all my testing on is in a Lian Li case, well actually all my cases are Lian Li when I build gaming machines

if possible, spend a couple hundred dollars on a "test" rig and go from there. if you want to try CPU, adn Graphics card over clocking, then make sure you get a motherboard good for overclocking, and a graphics card that has software to do the same... i like nVidia graphics cards for this reason. NiBiTor allows you to change the default stock speeds to higher, or lower speeds. you just have to use a floppy, or bootabloe media with DOS and flash the bios to your desired level....
