Overclocking HP Pavilion P6710f with new 1065T cpu

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hi

I am new so please take it ez on me.

I recently purchased a HP Pavilion P6710f PC. I upgraded the RAM to 16GB, made the Win7 partition smaller, installed vmware on USB key and used the rest of HD space for VM images. So I have a choice of working on my Win7 OR work on my vmware images.

I am getting an AMD Phenom 1065T 95w CPU. I didn't change the mobo (Not sure if I can to begin with) + power supply is still at 250w. When I go to CMOS I do not see any setting for voltage and related adjustments.

What are my options when it comes to overclocking? Can I even overclock this thing with cmos not giving me options? I read about "AMD overdrive" but not for this mobo and system.

Some specs on this PC ==>
MOBO: N-Alvorix-RS880-uATX
CPU Socket: AM3
Max TDP: 95w
Max RAM: 16GB
Video: Integrated ATI Radeon 4200
HD: 1GB SATA 3.0 Gb/sec 7200 RPM
Case: Mid-size ATX
Power Supply: 250W

I appreciate your help.

You can not overclock oem systems like dell and hp. Get yourself a new mobo and you will be good to go.

I'm pretty sure unless it's a gaming board, you can't OC on it. But I could be wrong also, so if that is the case and you can't OC on it I would get a new MB and a better Power supply to start with but wait for more replies as well.

O.E.M.s, such as HP, Dont allow People to overclock their systems (unless its a system targeted for gamer, but even then it is limited) because it is a Risk. Trying to modify your system in any way to allow for Overclocking will most definitely VOID the warranty.......
Your power supply wouldn't be able to handle any overclocking.
AMD overdrive is for dedicated graphics cards and is integrated with the Catalyst Controls
If You wanted to Overclock, shouldn't have bought a stock system.

The more i type, the more i seem to think maybe troll....

This is getting ridiculous. People are yelling "TROLL" on basic newbie help threads nowadays. Stop it.

If you do switch out your mobo, you may not be able to use the hard drive that came with your HP. I'm fairly sure HP configures the operating system to work with the original mobo. As such, if you change out your mobo to accomodate your new cpu, then you'll need a new hard drive to accomodate a new operating system. Also, as everyone else states, you'll need a new power supply too. 250 Watts won't do much.

Therefore, I suggest you take that new cpu of yours and build a new system around it. It's the only way to go if you want to OC the Phenom 1065T.

In summary, you would need a new mobo and PSU. I was in the same boat as you once, except with an Acer computer and a Q6600. Also note that if you change the mobo, I'm pretty sure you'll need to do a re-install, which may require an OS disk.

The part where he knows alot about VM and then apparently nothing regaurding overclockability on OEM equipment (which btw should be common knowledge to anyone with half a brain and has visited OCN) lead me to think that......

actually he can still use the hdd, he would just have to reformat it with a new OS

The part about having half a brain is totally uncalled for. yes; I saw a thread about HP pavilion not being able to handle overclocking but it was from 2007. I also saw cpu-z and amd tool on the net so I thought I may be able to pull it off.

Being polite goes a long way you know...

Thanks to all that contributed and helped without insulting.
