Simple overclock video card on your laptop or desktop

MSI Afterburner is the application that can be overclocked video card on your laptop or desktop. The surprise is that we can use the app on other PCs, not just the MSI.
Afterburner is a simple, easy to use and most importantly, free.
Before getting to overclock, you must be armed with rerăbdare and be prepared for some failures that are inherent when it comes to overclocking.
When you overclock a laptop, you should be aware of temperature, power and cooling. On battery, the laptop will behave differently than when connected to the network.
Laptop cooler is not designed only for basic frequency; Therefore, be sure airflow in the air intake.
Watch the temperature GPU-Z (download below), and if you see unjustifiably high temperatures, reduce the MSI Afterburner settings.
MSI Afterburner options.
For owners of laptops or MSI, the application allows change various settings. For products from other brands may change, but the core frequency and memory frequency. Enough for us!

MSI Afterburner overclocking results with.
Performance improvements that we have achieved I on Acer V Nitro (VN7)With Nvidia GTX860M, it was 15% for super stable settings. During probing, I received some blue screensWho are almost normal in overclock.

  1. For NVIDIA GEFORCE 630 GT, I want your opinion. a maxim that you think would be enough…
    3327 MB graphics memory available
    E 2048 MB dedicated video memory ..
    I TRUST !!!
    And luck incontinoare mula I like what you're doing! thanks for all the tutorials

  2. Forgot to say it's accurate or not all processors and video cards are made for the DDRAM overclok is true. those that are made for overclok will go smoothly at maximum settings and generally get along with drivrele and overclok schedule. I am one processor is designed overclok i7 and can double that is mine is quad core and can be done octacore give 4 virtual processors. video card is desitnata overclok. but as said Cristi depends on what video card you have and what credca processor plus something failed and base plate is as important leads and sources. I personally did not need my ECP plus overclok that leads gamer and not more Linux on windows rarely get f

    • And what do you do with i7 on linux. I have i3 and in linux it doesn't exceed 30% in anything. Before I had a 6850 and it was a bit long to install programs from the source code. Now it's about the same and cpu maximum 30% ram about 20% of 8G hdd about 12% wd black…. I think many cpu i7 rami is justified on linux if you have server: a small provider something or separate virtual machines with mail server, www ftp….
      If not how do I set linuxu slackware to take full advantage of computer resources? To finish the job faster and reach 80% cpu at least…

      • and sometimes require powerful processor on Linux if you run certain programs that require processor. but not used. I got promotions I7 it was almost half of that time I paid esteemed by. and said travel deals

  3. ahhh since I've been waiting for a tutorial from you with MSI Afterburner and here it is, patiently and "steam"))) has come. I did a little test for now that I have a msi motherboard and a gtx 650 ti bost video card and I have already seen a small improvement. I'll push a little more. Thanks for the tutorial, Merry Christmas and good health to make us tutorials as only you know tuturor everyone understands.

  4. After the tutorial choose the air today due to Deva swearing 'because many idiot I is I fry for PCs.

  5. I use precision.poţi xvga make a tutorial about? Merry Christmas!

  6. Cristi can help me, I have an HP laptop and do not know where to download the drivers, I went on the hp website but do not know where to discharging, you can help me !!

  7. Merry Christmas everyone ! I stay healthy and loved ones! The birth of Jesus will bring peace and quiet!

  8. Hello world, I did not look at the tutorial. I specify that in general a surplus of 10% on the video card or processor is acceptable. For those with intel processors use "Intel (R) Extreme Tuning Utility" and for those gaming from Asus ROG you can use "ASUS GPU Tweak" to overclock the video card. In my case for an nvidia 980M with 8GB of RAM is not necessary 🙂
    C-GPU Tweak we ASUS looks like:

  9. Hello Cristi
    How do you enable gt shadowplay a 940m?

  10. I think that the insults with "ILLITERATES" on the eve of the Christmas holidays are meaningless. Happy celebrations!

  11. Howdy! I want a tutorial on the Internet 4G now that the focus is more active internet to have always on you! Owning a data card from RCS_RDS and a portable modem that is compatible with 4G their website (2600 MHz TDD band 38) but do not know how you can activate a connection 4G a data card from them. For the voice + data no details but the only data I have not found anything. Holidays still beautiful and Happy Birthday!

  12. A tutorial really interesting to me was afraid to be honest I use this utility video card, have an MSI ATI Radeon HD7750 1 GB GDDR5 / 128 Bit Basic frequency of the processor is 830 MHz and the memory 1125 and we increased proceosrul and Maximum memory now is 900 MHz processor and memory temperature 1250 33 sit very well -35 degrees but increased fan speed on 10% .Deocamdata have not received any blue screen will show on a map comportamentul.Faceti good job thank you for the support offered along timpului.Sarbatori hear ourselves happy and healthy next year.

  13. Hello ! It's true that if you overclock your video card (or CPU) ii shorten the life of your video card (or cpu?) ??? I have a Geforce GT 630 1 128gb bit and I have the courage to do overclock because I heard many times that if I do overclock video card because it could ruin increase the frequency above the limit that has the factory. It's true? Thanks for the answer !!!

    • Michael, make sure you do not have dust inside (which prevents efficient cooling), make sure you have a good cooling or improve it, make sure you have a stable and updated drivers.
      As long as cooling and operating system works properly, you have nothing to worry about if Yorkers with 10% overclock the processor or graphics card (if possible of course)
      In general processors and video cards are clock-thread below in order to avoid the problems mentioned above.
      If for example you have a new PC or a new laptop, there will be no problem.
      While we recommend changing the cooling paste which can also cause problems.

      • Thanks for the answer !!! I will try to overclock a CPU E8400 so little to see how it behaves. In idle temperature is maintained at 37 degree because I recently purchased a paste with all intel cooler and then I have problems with temperature. I have updated drivers, and when it comes to dust is not a problem because I clean it often.

    It seems that now, the latest driver from Nvidia again blocks the possibility of overclocking on all laptops. So if you have a laptop with a graphics chipset from Nvidia DO NOT UPDATE ON THE DRIVER! I made this mistake, I went back to the old driver but I still have the overclock option blocked. Off… .I don't even know what the hell to do, there were some good settings and I got + 40% more performance and it was stable…. How can I get back to the driver that allowed me to overclock? With uninstall from programs and futures does not work…. 🙁

  15. I sochet motherboard so I am3 // 938 2,6 sochet AMD Sempron processor the AMD Athlon //////// 938 2 or 2, 340 sochet fm2 fit so that I Ando pins in a dual AMD choir pocesor the 5200 but I think it was another sochet /// so fm2 compatible motherboard sochet 938 am3
