i5-2500K @ 4.3GHz

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
My friend the stupid tard that he is told me to take it easy on the over clocking, when he said that he OC's his CPU (Laptop) and says I take baby steps..I'm pretty sure it's safe to OC a desktop CPU then a Laptop CPU. I have good airflow and I am thing about getting a water cooling system for my CPU, and all he has is a Cheap laptop cooler that still makes his Laptop over heat, I know it isnt fair comparing a Desktop to a Laptop but really, He's going to the EXTREME from 2.4 GHz to 3.5 GHz(According to what he says)rolleyes.gif. Your oppions, guys?

as long as his temps are under 99C then its fine but most will want to keep their laptop cpu less than 75. or it gets super uncomfortable.

as for you keep your temps less than 75C and your good.

So.. wat?
First of all, you really can't OC laptop's.. But if your friend has done it, he's done well..
Are you whining that he's calling you a noob for only OC'in that much?
I have no idea what you are trying to say.

Don't listen to him get a decent air cooler and crank that baby up to 4.8ghz,4.3 is measly my AMD does that LOL

lol. It is possible to OC a laptop but going from 2.4Ghz to 3.5Ghz is ridiculous (but not impossible). Not saying it can't be done, just saying...proof.gif? I'd love to know which manufacturer allowed this much cooling headroom on a laptop.
My guess is, he is degrading his laptop's processor badly.

I dare him to give it a 1hr run on IBT and post temps (hopefully, he can get them to you right before the laptop explodes.. though I assume pics of an exploding laptop will be a nice addition). Reaching a particular clock speed does not mean the overclock is stable/a good idea for the processor.

That said, crank your overclock up to 4.5Ghz (with a good cooler of course. i.e. != stock) and see how your temps fare
