Just kind of curious if it's even possible to O/C the Nexus 5 GPU. My previous device was a Note 2 and that could be O/C'd twice its stock XD.

its possible. but you wont see a difference in performance(except more battery drain). we are limited in fps to 60fps. the nexus 4 gpu is/was overclocked as well, until people started to realize that it made no difference.

Just an example.
But just as simms22 said, not visual advantage. I actually underclock to (potentially save power)

Over clocking a GPU without a dedicated heatsink is just stupid.
