I recently carried out a full repasting job on the cpu & gpu, as well as cleaning the fans and heatsinks. The notebook runs much cooler (approx 10 cooler) and quieter (fans running around half the rpms) now. I want to play with some light overclocking on theRadeon HD 5870 gpu and memory and perhaps pick up a few extra fps on some games. I have tried the Asus GPU Tweak utility, but the Memory clock is misreported as 4000 (memory should be reported as 1000 I think) and the built-in version of gpu-z totally locks up the computer when launched.

Any advice on the best utilities for monitoring temps and overclocking the graphics chipset would be much appreciated!

I use Sapphire Trixx
you can find it here: https://www.sapphireselectclub.com/ssc/TriXX/TriXX.aspx
It works well also work on the fans speed.
If you just want to monitor and not change settings then hwinfo_64 is good

Hope this helps
