Overclock 1045T? Or just upgrade?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, new here and I consider myself pretty smart when it comes to computers, however once you get into the technical aspects of hardware etc I get lost and confused with the lingo. So my question is this.. can i do an OC? I'm thinking that in all honesty I may be better off getting a new CPU to maximize performance. I have an HP Elite 500y. See screenshot below for detailed specs.

I would like some ideas and thoughts on what would be the best route to get more out of my machine, can I overclock? Would it be better to upgrade the MOBO and processor? Can I just drop in a better processor onto my current MOBO? Any feedback or help is appreciated. Thanks gentlemen!

Is 2.2 voltage bad? What should it be? I've never done anything so that's how it was when I got it.

Also I changed the power saving to Performance and increased the processor state to 100%. Is that what you mean by disable cool and quiet? The cooling policy is set to active. Is that correct?

Also I cannot change anything in my BIOS. Is there a way around that or I have to get a new MOBO correct?

Thanks guys.

Try AOD, perhaps it will work with your motherboard.
