Within its power draw of 75-watts, one might be curious to know about its overclocking capacity.
Clock Speed Comparison
|Reference||OC Profile||Manual OC|
|1485/ 1665 MHz||1485/1710 MHz||1585/1810 MHz|
I’ve increased its base clock speed to 100MHz to see if there any additional performance advantage for gaming.
The GTX 1650 OC 4G works with 1.60 AORUS engine. Since there are no fancy LED lights, the utility’s function includes overclocking, BIOS and driver update and GPU monitoring. Its a little annoying to see voltage input setting set as “percentage”. You wouldn’t know until you apply the settings and look at its monitoring graphs.
There were some occasions when the AORUS engine crashed for no reason. This was usually at the time when you switch between profiles and when you use the auto-scan feature. While utilities do get updates in time with newer fixes, this happens with the GTX 1650 OC 4G with this driver.
Fan Speed and Temperature Observation
The GTX 1650 4G OC has temperature triggering fan speed controllers, where its dual 75mm fans keep itself turned off until the core temperature crosses 56 degrees celsius, starting at 187 RPM. The AORUS engine does have an active fan and semi-passive fan controller toggle, but you can always manually override and set the fan speed.
With no overclocks, the GTX 1650 OC 4G stays cool at 58 degrees Celcius at 32c ambient with closed case conditions with its auto fan setting. This GTX 1650 has nothing more than an aluminium block with 2 fans to cool, which is enough for this 1080p entry-level performer.

Despite the 100MHz increase reflecting in its stock speed, the performance boost is insignificant.
