Laptops are fine tuned things unlike your common desktop so they can't handle more heat than what they were designed for. So while it might be possible to overclock this means there is no safety in doing so.

If you wanted high end gaming, didn't you hear or read you need to go to a desktop?

Thanks mate was just wanting that few extra fps in planetside 2 tbh lol its running pretty good just have to take shadows of and lighting on low but sometimes lags when theres a whole load of **** on screen at once.


I was thinking of upgrading anyway for the next gen as i only got this laptop as was on offer and i couldnt afford a desktop at the time Sad

Gaming laptops continue to cost more than a desktop of equal or better gaming parts.

And CNET did a gaming review at http://reviews.cnet.com/8301-3121_7-57578886-220/the-best-windows-8-gaming-laptops/

If you track down that Lenovo you find it's been updated to Haswell and here the price is right about 1K USD

But your 675m is pretty high end so for laptops my guess is that you are hitting other issues. Did you max out the RAM?

Thanks for your time there.


The main gaming specs for this laptop

i7 3630Qm when turbo mode boosts to 3.2ghz

GTX 675m 2GB

16GB RAM

Dont think ive been maxing out the RAM apart from when playing metro but thats expected on that game i guess, Also updated to the latest drivers so really no clue here might just get saving until xmas
