    Hello all,
    I have been O/Cing my laptop (g6-1d60us) and I have reached as much performance increase as I am going to get (in games) with just O/Cing my CPU. I have looked for a way to O/C my on die "GPU" through amd overdrive, no such thing. CCC only works with dedicated cards. Dried MSI afterburner, tells me my clocks but can't change them, and for Saphire trixx It only shows me my voltage. Does anyone have any ideas?

    Overclocking on a laptop can be dodgy due to the restricted space and inability to fit extra cooling fans, both of which conspire to allow more heat to build up compared to a tower PC. I wouldn't push it on the overclocking unless you want an unstable system and frequent shut-downs.

    Actually I have my CPU overclocked @3.1 GHz and stock is 2.0GHz and my temps peak at 72 under load! My laptop handles heat surprisingly well. Do you know of a way to overclock my on die GPU?

    You cannot overclock the GPU on these processors, only the CPU part is overclockable and you must watch the temps closely.

    Ok, that's what I was afriad of. :( Thanks though, and I am watching my temps VERY closely, I have a sidebar gadget set up for temp moitoring, and when testing new speed I us OCCT, core temp, and AOD.

    .... It isn't overheating and that can damage it. Extremely fast temputure changes are more damaging on a CPU then just extreme heat.
