Overclocking a Dell Inspiron 6000

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
how's everybody doing? i'm new to the site. i have a Dell Inspiron 6000, with a Pentium M 730 (1.6Ghz). The rest of the stuff includes:

1Gb 400mhz Ram
80 Gb (5400 RPM) Hard Drive
b/g wireless card
bluetooth card
CD/DVD-RW drive

had this thing since july/august 2005, and it's pretty slick. not too many complaints about it.

i'm looking to see if anyone has ever overclocked one of these things. my overclocking experience is from a LONG time ago. i had an old Compaq with a P-75 (damn!), which i overclocked to run like a 90. when i took it to 100mhz, it crapped itself, so i backed it down to 90, and it ran like a champ.

You can't overclock laptops, sorry. Even if the options were unlocked in the BIOS, the lack of sufficient cooling makes it impossible.

Laptop, right?

Wouldn't overclock a lappy. Run hot as it is, and plus you probably wouldn't get much higher than maybe 100Mhz or so.

If you must, try ClockGen. You won't be able to run any dividers, change RAM timings, adjust vcore, vdimm, or anything, so its mostly limited by voltage and your RAM.

Like I said, not worth it. Least, IMO. Go for it if you want. I OCed my P3 lappy for a while. No point in it though.

It's not impossible, just not usually a good idea.

Oh, and hello gcouriel, welcome to the fourms.

thanks for the help. i've tracked down prices on a faster processor, and will probably hold out until next year and slap a 2.26Ghz P-M on there. it's a 41% jump in processing power, so i think it'll be worth the upgrade (just not at the current price levels).
