Finally Figured it out :D Any other advice? OPINIONS WELCOME!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey all,

I finally got my laptops CPU and GPU overclocked! biggrin.gif

Specs: (Stock)
Asus G72gx-RBBX05
INTEL Core 2 Duo @ 2.53 GHz (P8700)
Nvidia GTX 260M 1 GB GDDR3
Windows 7 Pro x64
2x500 GB HHD @ Raid 1 (They r mirrored with win7 device manager, lags when resync but its fine for me biggrin.gif lol). (I think I'm right saying raid1, i am forgetting tongue.gif lol).
RAM: 6 GB GDDR2 (I think GDDR2 is corret...lol)


My overclock Settings: (CPU)
Core: 3.02 GHz (Stable with a few hours of gaming.)
FSB: 1272 MHz

**I overclocked to this with SetFB.
**I tried CrystalCPUID and rmclock but the voltage and mutiplier settings on them were greyed out, any help here is appreciated. (Others have showed me using those and changing mutipliers with same model lappy so I'm confused...lol)
**I used Intel ID Processor Utility to report my clock settings.
**Windows 7 x64 set to High Performance Power management and in there i set the CPU at min 100 max 100 (%).
**I turned TurboGear OFF in the OS but I left it on in the Bios...lol tongue.gif


My Overclock Settings: (Graphics Card)
GPU: 570 MHz
Shader: 1425 MHz
Memory: 912 MHz

GPUz Reported Clocks:
GPU: 571.4 MHz
Shader: 1400.0 MHz
Memory: 910.3 MHz

Max Temp. Load SC2 Intense gaming with graphics set at Ultra Ultra Extreme: 92.0 Degrees (C) @ average of 80-90 GPU Load.

Stock:
GPU: 500 MHz
Shader: 1250 MHz
Memory: 800 MHz

**I used nVidia Control Pannel (Voltage changing option is greyed out, but not with others with same laptop model, how?)
**With my Graphics Card I was maintaining the cards clock ratios of
GPU: 1
Shader: 2.5
Memory: 1.6
**All GTX 260M's from what I've read are (For their Memory) are not stable past 1000 MHz. So That is the highest I could go on my hardware at those settings and ratios while maintining under the 1000 limit (My memory does not have a temp sensor so I assume it has about 5-10% more temp than the GPU...).
**I can still go a bit higher on the GPU if I could just change it and leave the others, because the Burnout is 105 Degrees (C), and I can run @ 100 if I want, I can always buy another card....lol tongue.gif
But, I'll stick here for now...lol


Ok,

I have a few questions and comments above, with SetFPS and this laptop, I have to increase in incrmenets of 5 (10 at the most, sometimes 10 is to much for incrementing), to ramp up to my overclock settings above.

now, I'm ok with my FSB, it seems fast enough...

My CPU, this can still go to 4.0 or 4.5 GHz (maybe 5.0 GHz if I do the cooling modd that others have done with this laptop...).
How exactly would I want to go about changing my mutipliers...??
The programs above i stated are greyed out, but for others same hardware they arent and they can go higher...

Same with voltages, greyed out for me where as others its not...
What did I miss??? fail lol

i do have the Intel Xtreme X9100 CPU which is same as this one, only difference is its pin for battery dont work and it ran at 4.5 GHz when I had it in this laptop...

But that one is a 45 watt cpu and I didnt want to kill my power supply or the CPU itself so i took it back out, was to hot to even put my hand by vent for a few seconds, i forget the temps by now...

I think my P87700 is around 25 or 35 watts... i forget...lol

And for those who need it, because this honestly took me like just about year to finally find, even though it was on the SetFSB websight and I didn't think to look there... LOOK THERE FIRST FOR YOUR PLL VERSION ON YOUR BOARD...LOL biggrin.gif

The Pll for my laptop is: ICS9LPRS929AKLF

Questions and Coments and Answers ARE WELCOME!! smile.gif

Thanks all smile.gif

PS: I finally did something...lol tongue.gif

Next Project: E-Machine T2885 and why its such a pain to overclock its sucky AMD athlon XP 2.1 GHz CPU...rofl...lol
I heard of "CPU MSR" But I still have yet to check it and the E-Machine out...lol
I did stick a descent ATI Graphics card and extra fans in it a long time ago biggrin.gif lol tongue.gif

EDIT:
I'll add my CPU temps soon, i forgot to even look at those, I was just so excited I was able to play StarCraft 2 on everything maxed and 4v4 online game each player had like 300 units and i didn't even pause or glitch biggrin.gif

What are your load temps? Overclocking a laptop is super sketchy.

My CPU, both cores run about 70-80 Degrees (C).
Thats max load.

But in overclocking my CPU, the way the 2 radiators are on top of eachother, this caused my GPU to go up 10 Degrees (C), oops....lol

The GPU, was not stable anymore at any overclock because it kept hitting 105 degrees (C) Burnout threshold and the emergency cut out shut it off...

SO, I've been tracing the fan wires and battery wires with a volt meeter on my motherboard, being careful I dont break any chips, I'm going to look for a place to pick up full fan speed and use a DPDT switch to control the fan between 5x speed and stock auto speed.

I can always buy a new fan when this one wares out...lol

I'm also adding a shield if it works... dont want fan shrapnal flying and breaking my mobo tongue.gif lol

But I had OC'ed my GPU before I started overclocking my CPU and with CPU stock the GPU drops 10 degrees so I can run my listed GPU above if I drop my CPU, and I can run my CPU as listed above if I drop my GPU...

Just not both at the same time, gets to hot...

The fan blows air into a 3 stace radiator in this laptop:
Fan --> CPU cooler --> GPU cooler --> North Bridge cooler.
(Thats the air flow order) fail...

I wish my GPU was first, would have been smarter because the CPU can easily go up 20 Degrees (C) and stay safe... smile.gif

I might modd the heat pipes too...idk yet...

EDIT:
Curiosity, why did my post get moved from processor general to Intel processors?
(I only posted there because I included my graphics card, is why I posted it there, not just my CPU... sorry if that was wrong)
I did have trouble finding my thread cuz i didn't know it grew legs...lol tongue.gif
