My 10v64 runs games at pretty much the speed I expected (I knew GTAV would run like a limping dog at 7'ish fps and the original Crysis would be good on low to medium settings). I just like to improve what I can with hardware settings or technical trickery (Bitsum's CPUBalance etc) which is why I have an interest in this forum thread.
The IntelHD graphics do as you say use up to 128MB dedicated ram but can also use up to 2010MB of shared main memory as needed for games that need a lot (like GTAV). This is default and doesn't need to be changed. Even if it was possible to dedicate that entire amount of shared memory it wouldn't help much and it would become unusable for anything else until the ram setting was manually reduced.
Like you I wouldn't overclock with a passively cooled tablet either. The Linx 10v64 is supposed to have 1600MHz ram according to places like Ebuyer (even most ridiculously dirt cheap tablets have it and it's also the speed of ram Intel rated for the Z8300 CPU) which would mean the voltage would not need increasing to change the default 1066MHz to it's rated speed. With no voltage change needed heat increase would be minimal and my 10v64 shows a surprisingly low temperature even while running GTAV, Unfortunately I haven't been able to confirm it with Linx support. If instead the company that Linx buys the tablets from have cheaped out on the ram inside the 10v64s and it really is a slower type then attempting to set 1600MHz could catastrophically lock the tablet with no easy recovery method, which is why I haven't tried.
What I liked best about the tablet is that the default hardware settings seem good and currently the only change I'd make is the ram speed, if it turns out to be safe. I don't know what you mean by unlocking power settings as I don't remember seeing anything locked, but I experimented with the IntelHD settings early in my testing and those give optimal results on the defaults when gaming above the specifications of the tablet.
