    Hi guys I have a few questions about overclocking the gpu on my 2010 mbp.
    Mainly I just wondered if I did over clock it an something happened would my AppleCare be void? I'm assuming it would but wondered if anyone had any experience on the matter.
    Also if there was a way to over clock the gpu So that it wasn't detectable if anything (touchwood) ever did happen.

    Yes it will void your warranty but is undetectable if you dump the original ROM and settings first. Doing this and maintaining it in OSX is not an option for all cards. Can be done on the Windows side though.

    It's not worth it in my opinion for a 5% increase in FPS. Better off having a working computer that's under valid warranty and spending money on a desktop or console for gaming.

    Oh right, I thought I'd be able to get more than 5% as heard apple really underclocked it due to heat dispersal. Thanks for the reply I think I'll probably stick to it's standard config then 5% isn't worth the risk.
