    To admin/mod: This maybe in the wrong section, if that is the case please move to the correct section. Note I didn't make the tool, so I'm not sure copy pasting it to the tools section is a good idea.

    You have no idea how to overclock. I'm starting to even have my doubts about whether or not you even know what overclocking is.

    Forcing a max boost speed constantly is NOT overclocking, and is utterly stupid.

    any increase of clock speed/frequency above the factory preset counts as overclocking, the CPU is a i7-4700MQ Max Turbo Frequency 3.4GHz that is the max it can reach at any time, so if I were to set the multiplier to 36 x instead of the default 34 x that counts as overclocking as the max possible frequency has been increased by 200MHz to 3.6GHz

    but this is like saying all laptops are liquid cooled as heat pipes use water or alcohol and those are liquids, most people don't consider pumpless designs as watercooling, just like not going into BIOS for CPU overclock isn't really consider overclocking by you

    That's not how it works, With Kepler, you overclock by setting an offset on the so-called "Kepler boost", which is the dynamic overclocking it already does for itself beyond its rated boost clock. There's no easy way to can force it to stay on max clocks at idle, but increasing the max boost clock is extremely simple.

    No overvolting was done for my GT 650M either.

    Also, if I remember correctly the GT740M is just a very slightly underclocked GT650M. So somehow you see no gains on a chip that I overclocked to very noticeable gains.

    all you do is go in intel XTU and put all the multipliers to their max value, then look in HWiNFO and all the CPU clocks will be stuck on their highest turbo clocks even with nothing else running on your pc ie idle and yes the GT750M, 740M and 650M all used the same Kepler (GK107), 384 unified : 32 : 16, 28nm chip clocked at various speeds

    update: just tried the max overclock again and got 6.26% increase above standard, temperatures also very good, can probably push it higher http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/6108950?

    There are some times when I want to respond to more or less meaningless threads such as these with just "k."

    A 0.18% increase in performance means you didn't overclock well. I was easily getting 12%-15% increases when I overclocked my old GT650M.

    The reason laptop overclocking is advised against is that it goes against the idea of a laptop. You're increasing the heat output in a frame designed to cool the parts to a bare minimum so that they won't set themselves on fire, and increasing the power draw in a system designed to draw as little power as possible. It has nothing to do with performance gains, as the performance gains can sometimes be pretty reasonable.

    notice the standard turbo boost speeds were very similar as the overclocked, the only difference is that the overclocked is locked to max turbo boost speeds and GPU clocks at all times (even if the laptop is idle or overheating) the standard was not, also no overvolting was done

    Quote from DerpyChap
    Your specs clearly show you have 8 GB of RAM, not 256 MB. Also, as generalguy26 said, that is only the amount of RAM allocated to Minecraft, not the total amount of RAM your computer has. I've managed to run Minecraft with less than 256 MB of RAM allocated to it, so it's nothing special.

    enjoy

    At the time there wasn't any video appearing on my screen . ._. -_-

    probably cause i was still editing the page. are you a WOT fan by any chance? (your profile picture if you know what i mean, i'm just starting to play that game)
    Quote from TheMasterCaver

    Try playing singleplayer, not on a server - singleplayer runs an internal server and needs a lot more memory and resources, never mind that your server is only sending out 5 chunks (MultiplayerChunkCache = 121; 11x11 chunks = 5 chunks around the one you are in) - which limits your render distance to that value, no matter how high you set it ("Far" in 1.3.1-1.6.4 was only 10 chunks, not 16, because the internal server only loaded that many no matter the render distance, unless you used Optifine, only in 1.7.4 did they fix this).

    That said, people do always tell you to allocate GBs of memory to the game, which is completely unnecessary unless you use resource intensive mods (probably inefficiently coded as my own mods make no noticeable difference and with all the features added to vanilla over the years RAM usage hasn't changed much; most of the RAM required is to hold chunk/block data, which hasn't changed much), HD texture packs, or the new 32 chunk render distance (which requires that you allocate more RAM to be able to use). I can't even allocate more than 1 GB myself because I only have 32 bit Java (OS limited) and in any case 512 MB works fine, using around 200-300 MB of that on Normal render distance (which is why I doubt it would run well at max settings on only 256 MB).

    Of course, if your computer itself had only 256 MB of RAM it'd definitely run at like 0.1 FPS as it constantly pages to and from disk; you might be able to get by with as little as 1 GB though with a bare minimum of processes running and 256 MB allocated to the game (the Java process requires more) with default textures and lower settings. Also, it may matter whether you are running 32 bit or 64 bit; the minimum RAM required for 32 bit Windows 7 is 1 GB while 64 bit requires 2 GB, which may also apply to user programs (though 64 bit doesn't necessarily use twice the RAM; a 32 bit integer variable, as widely used in Minecraft, is still 32 bit on a 64 bit system). In addition, integrated graphics use system RAM as video RAM, which may take away from that, so be sure to check how much memory your computer actually has available (my computer has 3 GB installed, 3072 MB, but 33 MB is "reserved", leaving 3039 MB of actual memory available; 32 bit systems can't use much more than 3 GB of actual RAM because RAM shares IO addresses with the (dedicated) GPU and other things).


    Quote from thebaum64

    I can run multiplayer like that... but I do not dare go on single player...

    I only did it on multiplayer cause I get lower frames there due the the massive builds/custom terrain. Singleplayer=70fps, Multiplayer=40fps for me at least.
