    I meant Kepler. A few non-ref cards lets you. EVGA's requires an external hardware device and so does ASUS DC2. MSI Lightning can do software voltage modifying so far.

    Mind sharing how you managed to change the clock speeds? If I open nvidia inspector on my classic 2012 I can only declock Level 0 and 1 but Level 2, is greyed out and no accessible :/ sooo ? please? :D

    I always find these posts interesting, but I was hoping for some native OSX tests. Guild Wars 2 and Witcher 2 in particular.

    Anyone still here?

    I've pushed my GPU to 1150/2350, however whenever I run benchmarks, the core clock drops down to 786. Why is this?

    "The only difference, was that to get into P2, I had to type in nvidiaInspector.exe -forcepstate:0,1 instead of 0,2."

    I have a feeling this is your answer. Change it to 0,1

    After trying several settings and drivers on my rMBP i'm getting GPU throttle, from the default 900 to 725, even though the max GPU temp i'm getting is 72... I tried p1 and p5, tried throttlestop, resetting PRAM and SMC, but everytime, after 15 min of skyrim the throttling starts... any ideas?

    Edit: Well, looks like going back to apple's bootcamp drivers solved the problem. It's not ideal, but i guess it'll have to do for now...

    Hey guys,

    I was trying to OC my MBPr 2.3GHz with Afterburner and what I don't understand is:

    Clock Rate +135MHz (result 1035MHz)
    Mem Speed +900 (shows me a result of 3300 in After Burner, which sounds to crazy high?! Why is this? Shouldn't it be default clock + 900? When setting higher than ~920 I get artefacts in FarCry3...)

    Actually I would be ok with a extra clock rate of 135 MHz and there comes my next question:

    Do I have to worry when running this slightly overclocked system? I use Lubbos Fan Control in order to have the fans turn at proper speed.

    Your answer is much appreciated!

    Regards, MaKin211

    Can you explain that to me? You add 950Mhz Mem Clock on Afterburner, but the result is not 1254+950Mhz, but 1729Mhz which is 475Mhz, the half of 950Mhz. When adding 135Mhz to the gpu clock though, it results in 1035 MHz. I don't get this. :( Don't know in what ratio to overclock with 1035Mhz on GPU in order to not unnecessarily stress the MacBook.

    Thanks in advance!

    Can anyone comment about their results in reapplying thermal paste on the rMBP? I'd be curious to hear some before and after figures for CPU and GPU.

    Hy guys!

    I need a little help.

    A tired to overclock my rMBP but every time I set the inspector, to a higher (or different configuration than the stock) setup, it doesn't change the gpu core speed. The memory changes but then goes back to stock.

    Do you guys have any idea?

    Not sure. I overclock mine temporarily to play a game. Even with higher settings I do not see performance increase. Meh. Maybe the changing back to stock is a failsafe if the card is getting to hot or configuration is not optiomal...or something.


    Where do you type this in at? In the shortcut? Like is there a tutorial on how to do this. I used the site referenced earleir, but it still doesn't tell you where that command goes.

    May be the driver´s fault, as i cant increase clocks past 900MHz with NVInspector on 314.07 either...

    Your Memory clock should be 2508 by default if I am not mistaken.

    I dont know it should be by def 2508.. but at first it was around 758 some times jumping to 1200. so now what should i do? wait for a new driver or is there some workaround??? :confused:

    you guys have some balls, i'd love to do this to mine but i'd think i'd cap myself if i broke it :(.

    hoping for a 760m....

    anyone done this on the 750m in the haswell yet?

    I've put afterburner on (with 331.65 nividia drivers) and to be honest it doesn't seem to do anything....
