Overclocking a i7 720QM notebook?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I just wanted to beef the FSB up enugh to handle the 204 pin 1600mhz Ram. Is this possible? anyone know a uility that would let me do it?

jsut picked up a N61jQ-X1 for $400 and want to beef it up a little. Its always plugged in and on a fan platform anyway.

Thanks

what laptop you have? if its Asus or MSI, there's a chance SETFSB has the ID of the clock generators for their laptops right in the program... when you do, you can oc the "FSB" (not really FSB, more like NB in the CPU)

otherwise, not really, unless you sold your soul for a XM model (940xm)

I've been able to overclock every laptop I've come across that had a nvidia chipset/gpu.

My Dell Studio14z I got back in 2009 will overclock to 240 fsb (2.1Ghz to 2.5GHz). While not amazing, is better than stock biggrin.gif

I use Nvidia System Tools to do it, pretty simple. Lacks any voltage control or the ability to change Cas# so I'm limited in how far I can go.

yea, easiest way to oc for me, did it on a macbook pro on bootcamp a while back... wonder why other chipsets cannot do so.

Overclocking laptops.......... yakes! Watch the temps. Cooling solutions in laptops have small margins. But you know that, I think.
