Looks good, be careful, laptops with those specs are known to overheat.

Thanks guys. I closely monitor the GPU using GPU-Z log file and not letting the temperature go above 80 oC while gaming for at least an hour.

Not too bad... New Nvidia drivers took it from 6.9 for both graphics to 7.5!

That's quite a jump lol. You kinda like upgraded your GPU from something like entry level to upper mid-range with just an update. Nvidia has done something remarkable.

I know! Was hapy with the 650Ti when I bought it especially since mine runs overclocked but otherwise amazing. Now I need to decide on a new CPU cooler that won't block any of my RAM slots... Then It's up to 4Ghz and beyond with my CPU.

Just watch your temps especially during summer and clean your rig every 3 weeks IMO and you'll be enjoying that OC without issues.

It rarely gets about 18 Degrees C where I live and the machine is always cleaned and looked after... Even if it is always running! Runs well so far. Built it December 13th.

That's excellent. Here in Southern California it gets very hot during summer, and I can't play games on my regularly cleaned laptop without my CPU and GPU getting toasted. I haven't replaced the OEM thermal paste with something like Arctic Silver as I'm reluctant with disassembling laptops .

I have always done that once the warranty runs out on a machine. It isn't that hard and allows for better temps especially with Icy Diamond or Arctic silver. Have you tries one of those laptop cooling pads? That might help especially in the LA. Area. Spent many summers there and it's warm! My iPad has quit on me due to heat issues in the summer. Or try undervolting... But you have the potential for stability issues then.
