ATI Radeon 7520G What is the default clock speed? Can I overclock it to the max or will it ruin it?

I bought a budget a6-4400m based computer without knowing anything about it and I was kinda sad when I learned it couldn't really be overclocked.

In GPU-Z it said my default clock speed is 686mhz but i'm not sure if that's the stock speed or if I changed it permanently months ago from a lower speed.

What is the highest speed I should put it up to? I play ARMA 2 a lot and It's quite hard on this little notebook pc and it's not easy to get the frames I would like.

I turned the GPU up to 1300mhz even though I am not even sure if it REALLY turned it up that high or if it's just saying it's up that high and not actually doing anything.

The Pixel fill rate numbers all double, and texture fill rate goes up etc. But is it actually changing these things or just an illusion cuz I don't seem to notice much of an improvement?

I have a feeling if I am really turning it up to 1300mhz from 686 I'm probably going to fry it right? What is a "safe" number to turn it up to?

686 Mhz is the stock speed. If you're running this in a notebook, I wouldn't recommend overclocking it much, if at all. 700 MHz, would be as high as I would go. Chances are it isn't running at 1300 MHz, as that is nearly double the clockspeed. It may run at 1300 at idle, but playing a game might cause it to underclock due to heat issues.

If you want to overclock it, bump it up to 700 MHz, and then 750 MHz if you aren't having heat problems.

You were right, it was totally unsafe to run it at 1300mhz. I had a feeling that was a ridiculous jump. My GPU crashes if I go over 900mhz I have no clue why It was automatically shutting them back down to 686mhz. those higher numbers yesterday. I'm guessing it wasn't actually . i actually settled on 800 before I read your post to me, but I'll put it down more probably around 750 and leave it here. On GPU-z 800mhz bring it to the level where is practically as high as possible, so it can't be clocked more than that (safely at least).

Anyways, thanks for your help you answered my question and saved me from using it at higher than I should've. Thanks so much.
