Quick one, I know its very late for me to say this now but i need to know what ROG gamer's use to see real time GPU
and CPU temps. Also IF i can be pointed to a old thread about the tools or program i need to get more performance in games
and or the other word overclock from my G750JX, or just correct me in this post would be so helpful.

As i would like to see(safely) how much juice i can get from my baby(G750) for gaming ofcourse...
thanks!

Hi, ill be very short and quick cuse im at work..

I mainly use Gpu Tweak from Asus for the GPU.

And XTU from Intel for the CPU.

IMHO those are the best programs to use on my laptop (g750jx). Those 2 programs have all u need. OCing, Monitor tools, benchmarks.. etc...

Hi,

Well its realy simple actualy.

Lets take the XTU first
Cause CPU is locked u can only change the mulitplyer to 36. This will give you 3,6 ghz CPU speed.
IMHO cpu is an beast and dosent reayl need OCing. I rarley do it myself. Im no expert! Im just helping you to get started!

And now the GPU.
This will give you around 10 FPS boost. Just be carefull and dont make your GPU too hot. Every now and then check the temp.
Cpu and Gpu also have autoshutdown functions if they get to hot. But u must understand that Ocing is not "healthy" for your system.
If anything goes wrong im not responstible for anything. The things i wrote here i use myself. If u break your laptop, ITS YOUR FAULT! :D

just make everything same as on this picture. (and try to read and learn some more from this forum about OCing)

IMO this are the best settings for gaming. Memory speed goes funky at 5300 on my laptop. so 5000 is good IMO.

Great! :)
Because i am new to this, i need to ask, the only things i need to do is move the numbers as you have them
on your pic, and press apply? Also will that save that profile to always run at those numbers? or do i have to do this everyday?

And last :) (thank you!) which numbers am i supposed to move up and down to get the only performance boost i can get from this, and
how do i know its doing its job or something has changed apart from testing the game.

Thank u once again. :)

I recommend Speccy from Piriform. Tells you all you need to know about your rig, too!

Same guys who made CCleaner. The registry and history/cache cleaner.

The XTU and Asus GPU Tweak are great for overclocking/underclocking over/under volting, but they have limited monitoring and benchmark features. But, I have used both for those features many times :)

The one that seems to stand out right now, and is free, is HWINFO, which lets you start a Sensors display which is good for your original request to get realtime temp/info on the system. It also has extensive hardware info and other features.

HWinfo Downloads - I use the 64 bit release and beta.
http://www.hwinfo.com/download.php

The one I have used for years in its free form, before being bought up and marketed, and no longer has a free version - just a free demo is AIDA64. I have recently tested the new release of the Engineer version, and it is nice, and worth the $.

There are lots of other programs, and lots of places to get them, here are a couple of places I watch for new ones:

http://www.spec.org/gwpg/downloadindex.html

I've been using these all for a long time, when you are done with those, here are some more - most I have used, but many are still to be tested:
