Amd a8-3500m

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
So I'm trying to overclock this laptop. I'm wondering if it is safe to push the CPU any farther?

It's a AMD A8 3500M. Right now it's running 2.6GHZ 1.1000V. Stock speed is 1.5Ghz.

Idle temp: 40C Under Load: 71C.

Stock 1.5GHZ Idle: 40C Under load: 75C. (Crazy voltages. I lowered it by .2)

You shouldn't be going over 1.4125v for continuous use. You can, but it's not advised.

Your Max temps shouldn't peak over 100*C but for 24/7 operations, you'll want to keep the peak temps below 80*C

Very nice for a mobile processor. 2.6ghz at 1.1v is close to what a desktop CPU could do. Is it stable?

I went to 3GHz [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hu0dTDaJdz8[/ame]

However, the voltage was not optimized, and it was not stability tested out of fear of heat tongue.gif

Yeah it's stable. ^ Temperature ? I can get to those frequency, but when you benchmark they can make fry eggs.

Seems like I got it to 2.95Ghz at 1.1375V.

Idle: 40-41C, Load: 78-79C Benchmarking. Regular use is like 70C

*Edit: This is when the fan on high performance

Seems like I got 3GHZ without touching voltage from 2.95GHZ(1.1375v).

Tested using Prime95, Cinebench,Intel burntest, and 3Dmark06.

Btw, this laptop is a HP Pavilion DV6-6135DX REFURBISHED (Beats audio is amazing. Tested with IEM and Speakers.)

I also overclocked the ATI Radeon 6750M from 600/800 to 735/900. I can prob go higher but I have no need.

With these settings, on battery I get (6Cell)
This is on max brightness
2Hour Gaming
3-5Hours browsing internet
4-6hours Idle



Btw guys Ambient temperature is 72F.

I have no idea how you managed to keep the voltage the same....for me 2.5Ghz @ 1.1375v with 172*F max temp was my max....at 2.6Ghz I had to make it 1.1750v which was 180*F max temp and then 2.7Ghz @ 1.2125 at 190*F for it to be stable under the torture tests.....crazy though....My ambient temp is around 75....I didn't push it any further than that, but right now i'm working on underclocking it....right now im at 700mhz @.7375v.....should be interesting....might actually be able to rock a couple movies out of this bad boy by the time I get on a plane to leave this sand-pit of a country (going back to good ol' USA of course)
