    (Solved) Overclocking Nvidia GTX670M,3610QM And Heating Issue

    Will I Be Able To Overclock My Nvidia GTX670M In Asus G75VW ? If So, Please Tell Me How. And Is It Safe To Overclock, What I Mean By That Is Will It Overheat Or Crash And I'll Be Using My G75 For 4+ Years, So Will Overclocking Make It Not Last Longer ? And Does Overclocking Really Boost GPU Perfomance ? Is There Any Way To Overclock CPU Also It Is A 3610QM. One More Question, Its Only Been 3 Days Since I Brought My G75 And It Started Heating Up (When Doing Simple Tasks) Inbetween The Numpad And Keyboard. Is This Normal ? I Just Asked Because I Have Heard That The Cooling System In The G75 Is The Best.

    Thanks In Advance.

    I have a slight bit of heat in the same spot... I wouldn't worry about it unless it's an abnormal amount...

    OC'ing is safe as long as you do it in small increments and run furmark or play a game with those settings and watch temps if you get artifacts or it crashes you went to high
    Overclocking does help the GPU, helped mine a lot and it does produce a little more heat but my max has been 56-58 celsius while playing games

    But your CPU should be fine, I don't think there is a need to OC it

    Yea GPU can be easily overclocked by either using MSI Afterburner, EVGA Precision X or Nvidia Inspector.. They are all based on RivaTuner so its up to you what you wanna use..
    Ideally you should test by putting up the frequency by 20 and give it a run on Uniengine Heaven. See how it performs, any heat etc.. If you notice excessive heat or artifacts then you know you have reached the limit and should use a lower frequency.
    Every card is different but generally the 670M's should be able to hit 750/1650mhz stable.. and for benching some people have put it to 800/1750 which is very very high OC. I personally play pretty much all my games at 740/1650 and it runs very smooth with no issues, just a little bit more heat but nothing harmful in any way.

    You can OC CPU but its not recommended.. I have used it and it works fine on my system. Set it to 2.4 - 3.4 GHZ and it performed like a beast for CPU intensive games. CPU + GPU OC gave me around +30fps in planetside 2, huge difference and absolutley no excessive heat on the CPU, although i did notice GPU was getting hotter than usual ( 77degrees ).
    But the only issue with using the Intel extreme tuning utility is that some people have reported problems with its fails safe. For example if your system has a BSOD or just crashes and ends up restarting with your CPU OC'd, it will alter your bios and the OC setting will become stock, no way to reduce the mhz. so becareful with that.

    Thanks A Lot ! I Overclocked Mine To 750Mhz And 1650Mhz

    Can't you just reflash the bios if this happens?
