i5 450m Overclock Past 3.0

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Has anyone been able to clock this thing past 3.0? I have gotten it Stable at 2.84 but have not taken it up more since that. I ordered ram with looser timings Which i think will help. Im maxing about 73 during CPu heavy games such as BC2.

I would use prime to find the max temp. You are probably at your maximum temperature.

I would honestly sell a laptop if you want to overclock, a desktop is always better.

You could try different thermal compound too, that might give you alittle head room.

Yea a desktop would be better but i needed a portable for doing homework. I did put ac5 in and have a nice cooling pad so my temps are decent... well for a laptop. I pushed it up to 3.0 and it seems completely stable so far.
