I wanted to try overclocking my dual 8700m gt on my M1730 but I don't think rivatuner would let me.

I have used NTune to overclock the GPU on my laptop, but I honestly don't see it as worth it on a laptop. It never gave me more than 1-2FPS and the increased risk isn't worth it. You run a higher risk of damaging your laptop than you would in a PC. Since everything is sandwiched together, you could damage something other than just your PSU.

I downloaded hacked/modified drivers from laptopvideo2go.com and then used NTune to OC. Good luck, though honestly I believe you shouldn't OC laptops.

Mobile GPU's are usually super hot due to the conditions that they exist. Overclocking them further is asking for trouble since they're already pushed to their limits.
