Hey guys, 
I'm not exactly new to overclocking, but neveder done anything more than "light" software/BIOS OC. I've got Toshiba P50-A-13C laptop with i7-4700MQ & nVidia GT 740m. It ain't much, but I feel there is more performance than it shows inside. My main focus is to overclock the hell out of that GPU, since it's seriously holding me back in games. I used NVinspector to go from 1058MHz to 1104MHz on the core, but it seems to be on the edge of stability. 

Attatching .xlsx file with HWinfo logs + graphs from 3DMark Skydiver benchmark.
I'd be grateful for any additional info you can tell me guys. Thanks a lot :)

The cooling solution holds your GPU back as well...

I have an exploit that works (but junky) on this GPU,when i tested it,the GPU reached the thermal throttling point fairly quickly.

Cooling won't be problem, already made custom bracket to push coldplate to GPU + I'll be using liquid metal. Dropping GPU from 90°C to 60°C doesn't make any difference now. 
May I ask you what to do to push it harder, sice you look like you have the solution?

Use Nvidia Inspector,it's a bit junky and may take a few attempts for it to work.

You can check the real clock speed with GPU-Z.

so when it crashes, just add voltage, right?

Yep,and if you reached the max then you will have to lower the clock a bit.

You will have to make sure the overclock really applies with GPU-Z.

Thank you very much, I'll try this technique, I just wasn't sure if this was right.

@onejovicT1st - Your squiggly line graphs show that your CPU is running well below what it is capable of. The 4700MQ can run continuously at up to 3.4 GHz. You should be seeing this speed or more during a 3D Mark test. If you want to get the most out of your 4700MQ, download and post some pictures of ThrottleStop.
