Calling AMD Overclocking experts. Please Help!

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

I have a Quad core desktop, and its pretty fast handles everything i require
it too...

However my girlfriend recently gifted me a

HP Pavilion G6-1013SA Quad core Phenon II 1.8Ghz Laptop

Now understandably its not ever going to be a fast as a desktop.

But has anyone out there any idea how i can beef this baby up.

This is what i have done to the stock system so far...

1)All drivers etc updated running service pack 1 on win 7 64bit
2)ATI drivers updated.
3)Increased stock RAM to 6GB

This is what im planning over the next few weeks...

1) Exchange current 500GB Hitachi 5400 for a
Hybrid 500GB Momentus XT
2) Increase NFTS cluster size to 64KB
3) Increase the ram to max 8GB
4) Pray for divine intervention! rolleyes.gifrolleyes.gif

This is what im contemplating...

1) Rumour has it the Quad core 1.8ghz is an underclocked
desktop version... would like to unlock the true potential
any ideas?

2) The standard M880G / HD4250... is it possible to upgrade this
or overclock it too?

Would appreciate any help and advice

Cheers:)
Eddy

1. I would have to say no because if it was a desktop version it can't take the heat of a laptop version cpu. AMD desktop version chips usually can only take around 60-70C laptops usually take up to 100C

2. overclock? if you can find a crack version of your bios then sure why not.

I'd say try this options, Overclocking a laptop is not exactly like the best idea the cooling will not be capable of handling the extra heat and the performance gains will not be worth it.

I dont think you will gain much going from 6-8 gigs of ram.

Cheers for the info peeps, stripped the laptop down, think the
pll chip manufacturer is windbond.

Appreciate what some are saying with regards to heat issues with
oc a laptop.

Will try everything else before going down the oc route, but even if i do
it will prob be a low end oc with some kind of cooling tray and
only boosted when i need it.

Cheers
Eddy

replace thermal paste, do some mods to improve airflow, eg cutting out every other divider on a grill to improve airflow, laptop cooling pad and lap cpu/heatsink, find a modded bios, overclock, if you cant find a modded bios just enjoy your low temps, you can OC gpu but again thermal paste will be needed, indigo extreme is a good option, again heat is your enemy.

This. Going from 6GB to 8GB in a system like that will do a big 0 for you. Why don't you just install AMD Overdrive and overclock with that? A faster HDD is a good idea too. If you're willing to spend money I would just upgrade to an ssd. It's light years faster than the fastest mechanical HDD. But overall the biggest 2 changes you could make would be an SSD an increasing core speed.

Thanks lightsout, DSF and Flawlez, points noted, thought id max to 8gb to help
along with video, but true true 6-8 is not much...

Cheers DSF, will deffo look into those mods, i already use the laptop on a cooling pad, but gonna mod the pad coz its a bit pathetic looking... and reserve that for oc use.

Hey there Flawlez mate tried the Overdrive 1st, but HP locked out so many things i cant
seem to move the sliders etc in Overdrive. CPUFSB/CPUCool simply crash on startup!
Clockgen starts up but many functions arent there...

Deffo going for the Hybrid SSD/Mechanical momentus xt drive.

Couldnt afford a fully SSD drive, as much as i would love on, as i need 500GB minimum for video/gaming.

Gonna be a challenge... but i dont give up easy, last night i ripped it apart took loads of pics tried to identify the pll chip (think its winbond), and put it all back together...

Guess what it still works Haha
