    voltage increases, heatsink modifications? I'm guessing just the bottom plate off and a portable air conditioner?

    Since Mandrake has given his M17x up (thanks for your effort), I'll be taking over the official scores. To avoid any kind of confusion, score's will continue on from this point. SO if you've recently posted a score, re-post it after this to have your scores up (otherwise they won't count). Same rules apply (please see post 1 by BatBoy).

    yes and we speak about a laptop with restricted bios for such high modifications. if its about desktop use liquid nitrogen and press it to 5ghz.loool

    even he reached it its actually useless. just for the record as many stuff seen here.

    i overclocked the 4870s. they looked more than stable. until i was playing cod mw2 for more than one hour and i got a bsod probably due to overheat. the error was something about atisys

    I did boost the voltage for that oc but as for cooling, just sitting on a cryo at room temp with the backplate off

    It will be easier for me to just use my chest freezer rather than a portable ac ;)

    Nothing is useless

    No offense but you don't think like we do. .1 ghz isn't something we need it's something we try to do because it's a game to us.

    It's the fact we are pushing it.

    Just because you don't see it like others doesn't mean you need to bash us/it.

    I just broke my previous vantage record with minimal effort using the Catalyst 10.6 workaround + setfsb :) Check it out, looks like I got plenty of room left to tweak + OC. 17k+ should be very easy to hit. The full potential of this notebook is finally becoming unlocked. First 17k GPU score sounds good, I'll hit it in a few minutes.

    Pretty crazy Joker. Next week I should finally have time to throw my laptop in the freezer and work on benches with it. My desktop loop had a leak as well as a cpu upgrade so that has been occupying my nights so far

    Freezer is pretty hardcore lol. Mine has no external cooling, it just sits on top of an unpowered targus pad. Doing a run right now hoping for 17k+.
