    Overclocking Mobility 9600 64mb

    Just installed the Omega drivers 2.5.22 which comes with Radlinker.

    Current settings say CORE: 337.50, MEMORY: 229.50
    I have an option to ENABLE CLOCK RATE CHANGE, but what is a recommended overclock rate?

    TIA

    Thanks, Ive done that.
    This is probably an eternal question but how do you know how much to overclock and when to stop?

    use the ATI tool http://atitool.ocfaq.com/ to find your max, itll make it easy on you. Mine tops out at around 430/300. I score around 3700 3d03 marks with it set there. Not too bad for a laptop...

    Lenovo X230 | i7-3520M | 16GB | 256GB Crucial M4 msata | 12.5" IPS |

    HP Mediasmart EX490 | E5300 | 4GB Mushkin | 6TB space, but could use more |

    Back home again.

    With the ATI tool, do you hit Find Max xxx and leave it untill you get bored?
    Then it just sets it high as it got?

    yeah, you just hit find max and leave it for a while (I left mine for 40 mins) and it'll do the rest. After that i saved mine as max so i dont have to try to remember what it was clocked at.

    I'd be VERY careful w/ oc'ing that lappy's video card. Since your lappy has a 9600 pro m, it's probably an expensive lappy. Expensive or not, there is 1 thing most laptops have in common: crappy cooling. Watch your temps like a hawk dood. I'd hate to see you fry that 9600m.

    well that was my concern.. just going 'ooh overclock!' and cranking it up to max.
    Laptops are warm enough as it is.

    After a hardcore gaming evening, you could keep your coffee warm on it.

    yeah, i dont run mine over clocked 99% of the time. I hardly overclock for games (cause the 9600 does a good job of running everything i want to play). Sorry i should have specified I dont run mine oc'd all the time. And if you find a temp monitoring program for it, let me know, lol.
