Improving 8400M GS


Recommended Posts

Hi all, i am an huge noob at overclocking.

I have a laptop hp dv6780ep

Win Vista 32bits

Core2duo 2.4Ghz


Nvidia 8400 GS 256mb

In order to improve my gaming expirience i have downloaded the driver 169.04 with the modded INF, there is also an inhanced INF dont know if it is better than the modded one.

Then, i have installed River Tuner and overclocked my graphic card to 510/510.

But some questions still remain:

- Is the 169.04 the best for gaming?

- In the River Tuner is the 3d performance the only option i have to increase the graphic card performance?

- How far can i overclock?

3D Mark06 Results are:

-Stock drivers with no overclock- 2850

-169.4 drivers with no overclock - 2756

-169.4 drivers with overclock at 511/1022/509 - 3596

Change it to become an 8600M GS through rivatuner, get 177.79 drivers, and overclock.

I have made the tutorial to a 8600m gs, with drivers 169.04 and overclocked 510/510 but inspite of geting way better results in 3dmark05 ( 4280 ), the graphics in a game ( Assasin's Creed ) seems to get a lot worse.
