Hey how risky is it to overclock a gtx 1060 in a laptop? I'm really new to it. Will I need like a cooling fan or something? Or will I destroy my laptop...
Rule #1 of overclocking, never overclock anything in a laptop as it doesn't have the sufficient cooling. Even with extra cooling fans, it is still risky .
Unless it's the new ASUS laptops that have a watercooling dock.
A GPU isn't too risky per se but you're not going to get much out of it and I think it's really worth the time. You might get +20 MHz on it. Maybe... just maybe.... +50 MHz.
that said, I did it to my laptop and it didn't cause long-term issue. It didn't improve much though either. Maybe 2-3 FPS depending on the game.
That said, I replaced it with a custom build shortly after starting to tool around with such concepts.
Hah! I remember that vid.
Yep. That blue metal one?
