    When you say you did a clean install, why do you think your CPU and VGA settings were changed? I am just interested and curious here.

    Its not that i think they changed its that i would like them to overclock and increase while i am gaming...I am just wanting to increase the power and potential.

    So far people have told me MSI afterburner, and NVIDIAinspector...inspector is confusing...

    and then someone said SETFSB...

    For OC'ing the CPU and memories the best way is to go into BIOS... MSI Afterburner is good for the graphics card... - however, you have to be aware that the the OC'ing is limited by the temps! And a laptop will be always worse overclocker than a desktop...

    Ah thank you I do understand. You would get most of your gains from overclocking the VGA, which VGA does your particular laptop have?

    Before you overclock, watch out your laptop power adapter rating

    I was able to OC my 560M GPU successfully and stably with MSI Afterburner. I didn't really bench it much afterwards, except with Windows Experience Index. Both 2D and 3D scores went from 7.2 (stock) -> 7.4 (OC), which for WEI is significant.

    I wouldn't OC the CPU in a laptop...the system stresses are magnified as compared to a desktop, and there is just no telling what'll stress out first. Plus laptops are not modular like desktops, so if the VRMs or caps on the mainboard go, the whole laptop is gone, unless you can find another mainboard to put in...
