I don't know what a stable point is, but I m woking on it Core=700 Memory=1650. It is overclocked average 10~13%. So.. well...
I don't want to push a lot for my laptop.. I m satisfied with this clock.

I know some use the MSI utility, it supports things besides the MSI cards. 10-13% is about all you will get out of those cards, considering that they are limited by the cooling solution. Some may get a little higher, but that is exception. Why would you want to do it? If you want to OC to a useful extent, why not buy a desktop?

I just like to stretch the system as far as it can go i have a desktop with a 690 from asus at 1204 core speed and 1608 memory clock... so i just wanted to know what kind of tool do you guys use because most i tried tend to jump up and down...

Totally understand that. My guess is just try the various tools and see which work reliably with your system. What do you mean by jump up and down? The cards may not be capable of clocking at arbitrary frequencies, and so they jump among the available clock frequencies. Just my $2*10^-2 :cool:

well nvidia inspector offers 3 powerstates...
and when i set one i get thrown back to default clocks

It may not be stable, I would not know, try asking around in the desktop OC forums, some of those guys might know more.

I am using MSI afterburner, and I overclocked as I said a top topic. That clock is stable all of the game without drop a FPS. I also tested stress a GPU, it was 85~92'C for 20Min. I know it is avoid warranty if you overclock a GPU. However, in my case, I d used G60vx laptop before, and I overclocked Gtx260M as core 500>550 Mem 1200 > 1350 for 2years. It was working just fine since I overclocked GPU. So my opinion is 10~13% overclocking is fine to push and power adapter is capable of doing it.
