Nuggstein Posted October 7, 2007 Report Share Posted October 7, 2007 (edited) So, before I installed modded drivers, I was running 101.19 and 101.38, which both were able to be overclocked. Now I'm on 163.44 and it I can't overclock, no matter what software I try. ATITool, RivaTuner, nTune...nothing works. What sha'll I do? Also...why is it that many, MANY, people can overclock these 8600M GT babies to really high clock speeds (if I tried doing the same clock speeds as someone else, I would get a huge amount of artifacts in games, causing me to reboot), with the same laptop, and achieve MUCH higher 3DMark scores than me, and frame rates in games. For instance, I get around 30 FPS ONLY when playing max settings in Counter-Strike: Source, @ 1680x1050, and someone else playing the same game, with the same laptop, achieved an incredible 120+ FPS in CS:S, and other games. How is this possible? It's bugging me that my laptop cannot do this...when people with the same exact laptop can. What am I doing wrong? And when changing the resolution in CS:S to 1024x768...I only get 60 FPS. It makes no sense. :) Thanks! :) Edited October 7, 2007 by Nuggstein Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
