    I have tried to play several games on the Acer Iconia W510 but it sees like it's hard enough to find even one game that actually works.

    So far i've tried :

    World of Warcraft 8 - 11 fps
    Dungeon Siege 3 crashes right away
    Dungeon Siege 2 playable with about same as WoW
    Dungeon Siege 1 should work.
    Portal 2 is a no go probably 1 aint gonna work either

    Got Age of Empires Online running around 12 to 14 fps.

    Ive tried several other mmo's but it seems all waste of time

    However powerful in programs this tablet isn't gonna cut for gaming

    I am wondering if there is a way to overclock the system to at least get the games that are playable to run slightly faster?

    In the bios there seems nothing adjustable

    Ive tried with clockgen and setfsb but without any motherboard or info it wont find anythiing to improve

    Any idea's to get the tablet work rather somewhat better on gaming? I already have several tools making sure games get higher priorities.

    No offense but you have a tablet that is simply not up to the task. The Atom processor is underpowered and lacks the graphics processing capabilities to ever be very good at anything processor or graphics intensive. Intel marketing, and anecdotal comments from people who must have no experience with anything better aside, the Atom line is still populated by processors that have more in common with netbooks than anything else. If you do overclock, I would also expect you would fry thing in a rather short span of time. Again contrary to Intel marketing, the processor still generates heat under heavy load. Without a fan or even appreciable internal circulation, the risk of overheating is closer to.a certainty than simply a possibility.
