  1. its basically pointless for a number of reasons.

    1. intel only has integrated graphics which are so weak anyway that overclocking is pointless. plus i dont believe it can be done anyway

    2. since its impossible to further cool it like an actual graphics card your temperature would restrict you anyway.

    if your looking for better performance you really just need to buy a better card.

    Yes it definately is the case that for better performance you need a better graphics card.
    But you also said that intel has intergrated graphics. It is near to impossible to replace an intergrated graphics card so what do you do then? :kaola:

    What graphics are you talking about? HD3000 or HD4000 or something else?
  4. it is pointless, you won't gain much perfomence even if you are using intel's best HD3000 or HD4000
  5. Actually, it's possible to overclock your integrated GPU and it will perform good on games that don't use much CPU.
    Download Intel Extreme Tuning Utility(Intel.com>Menu>Support>Tools&Utilities>Tools&Utilities>Monitoring>Intel Extreme Tuning Utility.
    It can overclock the GPU and the CPU, however I don't recommend this, because as I said if the temperatures reach a certain point, it's gonna slow down to keep the temperatures in check and what you get might be be a better GPU for a worse CPU.
    I don't know much about oveclocking, but if you do this please do not raise the voltage before reading a few articles first, because you can fry the chip.
    Other than that your warranty is void if the find out you overclocked it.
    My guide is look for results of an overclock on the internet and add 20%-30% less then the added clock speed and then start raising it little by little until unstable or you see high temperatures, you need to test in between the raises, MSI Kombustor is a great utility or Furmark, they are basically the same.Both are for the GPU.
