    Asus G74SX Overclocking

    Hi everybody,

    I have Asus G74sx-BBK7 bought at best buy.
    I will attach picture with my GPU spec and details from Nvidia inspector.
    Can somebody please help me to overclock it to maximum "safe" point without crashing?
    I˙m new with overclocking and I wouldn˙t like to screw my laptop.
    Thank you for you effort

    I have the same card in my G73SW, mine came from a G53SX. Anyway not all cards/machines can OC to the same level but here is the highest I've been able to get mine to and remain stable.

    Honestly there's no "safe" limit people can give you because every card is different. Those little tolerance differences in every product made generally means that even though you have the same model as other people your experience can be drastically different since it's a different physical product.

    As mentioned above... it's at your own risk. I recommend doing some micro changes (go up a tiny bit and see if it remains stable) and just keep doing that until you see instability or heat issues. Then dial back to a previous setting.

    I've seen some people clock up to 950-975, but I clock mine to 900/1800/1800 and haven't had any problems with temperature increase or instability of any kind. I also don't see any need to clock it higher than this as it allows you to play battlefield 3 at highest settings fine, skyrim with a **** load of mods at ultra and witcher 2 at high settings.

    What CPU are you using? I haven't taken my 560M that high (yet, no real reason to really go for it until I lose this 5400 RPM HDD and maybe upgrade my CPU), but I'm curious what other settings you've got. As I said, my biggest bottlenecks for now are my HDD and my RAM's data rate (1333 max due to the 2630QM I'm running).

    I've only managed to get mine to 768/1500/1535. It won't behave beyond that. But, could the problem be because I am running my processor at a lower clock rate too? I'm using Power4Gear to keep it at 1.17mhz. It doesn't need to run higher than that unless I'm rendering video after editing.
