My gpu won't let me overclock it in msi afterburner

HP Recommended
Hp compaq elite 8200 ultra-slim
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)


I have a hp compaq elite 8200 ultra slim

With 8gb ram

120 ssd

AMD radeon HD 5450 512 mb vram

I recently got nvidia quadro 1000m 2gb vram

I installed the drivers from the nvidia website

And when I went into msi afterburner the clock

Speed was lower than my radeon

And the evertime i would try to up the clock speed on the slider it would just go back to were it was

So can anyone help me on this

messing with things you don't fully understand is a great way to either have a unstable system or a dead video card


do your self a favor and fully read the afterburner docs


next trying to compare two compleatly different gpu architectures by simply assuming that the frequency range of each is the same and should work the same will also result in a unstable system or a dead video card


laptops and small form factor systems are not systems that have headroom for overclocking due to the thermal issues faced by systems that have limited thermal headroom due to the size of the system
