Can you overclock mobile processors? Specifically the A8 3500M.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
The laptop I ordered has this APU combined with 6750M graphics, was just curious if I can overclock the APU as that seems to be the bottleneck in games.

I think you can, but it will get hot.

Depends on what the motherboard is. Many are locked in terms of overclocking.

Not sure about the motherboard. And of course I'd run a badass laptop cooler if I were to overclock it. The laptop model is HP DV6-6135dx

Does anyone have any other input? Like how I would go about doing this or finding out if my laptop can?

Hey guys,

I have the dv6-6135dx refurbished too...Right now I am working on overclocking/underclocking the processor. Someone else said that you can OC the video cards too...

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU EPLACE THE CRAP STOCK THERMAL STUFF WITH ARCTIC SILVER or EQUIVALENT before you start messing with the overclocking, you'll see why when I get below.

So I've worked on it so far, and it's stability tested up to 2.7Ghz.
The stock power table had the Boost 2.4Ghz @ 1.3500v so it is relatively safe to assume that the processor can handle that burst for a short amount of time.

I have done stability tests up and down the range so far and have come up with these values -

2.7Ghz@1.2125v which is about 190*F during stability test, before the fan kicked in on high and pushed it to 180*F
2.6Ghz@1.1750v which is about 180*F during stability tests and stable
2.5Ghz-1.5Ghz tested @1.1375v ran @ 170*F during stability tests and stable

The stock table in the computer i'm sure can be tweaked but I haven't played with it yet....
1.5Ghz@1.0875v
1.4Ghz@1.0500v
1.2Ghz@1.0250v
1.1Ghz@.9875v
1.0Ghz@.9750v
900Mhz@.9625v
800Mhz@.9375v

I am working on underclocking it now.....I have been on 700Mhz for like an hour...it keeps testing stable, and I am currently on .7625v lol lets hope I can get like a 10 hour movie outta this SOB by the time I'm done haha.

Currently I am using these programs:
K10stat changes the clock (even though it says the clock control function is disabled it still works)
CPU-Z to view the core voltage, clock, and multiplier,
Speedfan - to show the temperature
and Intelburntest at standard and max modes as well as pass95...

I just got the same laptop and want to increase it to 2.3 range.
Did you finish testing and find a good stable build? if so can you please list the settings for K10. thanks

I have a DV6 6184CA WITH THE A8 3500M. Which is almost identical to the dv6 6135dx. My favorite k-10 stat settings are:




BO 27 1 1.2875 2867
PO 23 1 1.2250 2600
P1 20 1 1.1875 2400
P2 30 2 1.0875 2300
P3 24 2 1.0500 2000
P4 18 2 1.0250 1700
P5 12 2 0.9625 1400
P5 10 2 0.9375 1300


I have replaced factory thermal paste with Arctic Silver 5. The laptop runs very fast and stays within thermal limits without a cooling pad. I still use one though.
