Asus G73sw

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I've searched and searched the internet all over the place and still can't find anything on being able to OC my new Asus G73sw laptops cpu. Well it's not really an OC, just making turbo boost run at 2.9ghz when ever I need it to.

So does anyone know how to overclock the Asus g73sw's CPU? No option in bios and its the newest bios out. It's 2.0ghz stock and 2.9ghz turbo boost...I would like to be able to set it at 2.9ghz constant when needed instead of relying on turbo boost. Hell, prime95 only makes it run at 2.6ghz. Does pretty good as far as benchmarking on stock speeds, though I have the GPU (460m running at - Core 880mhz, Shader 1750mhz and Memory 1625, which is maxed in MSI afterburner) - 630 in Heaven and 16,941 in 3dmark06...neither make it run at 2.9ghz though Heaven keeps it at stock 2.0ghz, and 3dmark06 pushes it to 2.5ghz. Temps are great to, I must say this is the coolest running laptop I've seen in a while!

I just want tp be able to set the CPU to the clock speed I want it and even push it past 2.9 to see the full potential of this new toy of mine! Any help will be greatly appreciated!!

Im not sure if you can actually OC the cpu. As for your OC on your GPU, I just got the G53 yesterday is it safe to take the 460M that high?

G73SW = Sandy bridge. SetFSB is not working. wink.gif

OP. You should run Throttlestop in Monitor mode, since it will stop throttlling with high load on both the GPU and CPU at the same time.

If using Furmark alone, or Prime alone = no throttlling, but Prime+Furmark, or GTA IV = throttling.

Throttlestop in monitor mode will stop that stupid behavior. smile.gif
