    Whenever I try the overclocking with nVidia inspector I get a visible increase in performance but at the cost of stability. It's usually 10-30 minutes until the graphics driver crashes and the game (TESV: Skyrim) with it.

    Configurations I've tried were gpu 900, memory 1350, shader 1800 and gpu 850, memory 1300, shader 1700. Temperatures hovered around 60°C, peaked at 64° once or twice right before a crash.

    I think I might not be using the right combinations of settings. Since there are people here who seem to have made it work, maybe someone could help me? Or is this a temperature issue? I'm using the 285.79 driver.

    I found the problem, I think. With higher memory clocks to match the increased gpu clock the stability is much better. 875/1750/1550 for example was a noticeable performance boost for me (though I haven't quantified it by benchmark) and runs stably at no more than 61°C.

    You're using nVidia Inspector?

    if you look at my first post, up to like 920 is safe 24/7, got that info from notebook review forum i believe......the G74 has really good cooling.........i just did it to see what it can do, but back to stock now as its more than enough for what I do

    920?

    sorry but thats bulls*it! and I tell you why...every single 560m gpu is UNIQUE! so we can OC it to 950 or so but most people will have the stable clock around 900...some happy gamers are stable at 940 or so...you have to try and test it by yourself in games like crysis 2 e.g. forget about synthetic tests benchmark they dont tell you anything except points. GPU has great cooling and own protection so the limitation is only locked GPU voltage
