I have an old ux31a which has intel hd 4000 for its gpu. i have recently installed Intel Extreme Tuning Utility to undervolt the gpu since it was basically going over the max idle temp by just a bit. BUT it does overheat when i game. I opened the software and i found no option to tune my graphics. There was an option to overclock the cpu but i never need it to be overclocked. Any ideas on how to fix this?
hmm, mine doesn't have the advanced tuning drop down thing. IT IS possible that thats a specific feature when there's 2 or more configurable settings. But it is as well possible that I may have installed the wrong XTU version. do you mind sharing your XTU version?
I'm using the latest 6.2.19

I just tested the latest XTU https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/24075/Intel-Extreme-Tuning-Utility-Intel-XTU- version 6.2 and Intel® HD graphics 4000 but does not have graphics overclocking options.
As far as I remember the Intel® HD graphics 4000 will not allow to overclock with the Intel® XTU. I will confirm this statement and update this thread as soon as possible.
