AMD Athlon II P340 Overclocking

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have a AMD Athlon II P340 CPU in my laptop and I want to overclock it except all the programs I have tried don't work. Does anyone know how to overclock this CPU?

I can't overclock it from the BIOS and my laptop has lots of overclocking head room (50 degrees load with a special laptop fan). The reason I want to overclock it is because it got 8GB of RAM for my laptop and my CPU is bottlenecking my system. I have done a bit of research and I think the CPU has a locked multiplier but I don't mind overclocking the FSB a bit.

It's very hard to overclock in a laptop. I'd try SetFSB; http://www.tomsguide.com/us/download/SetFSB,0301-23048.html

My laptop isn't supported by SetFSB 2.0, I think I will have to leave it.

I had the same CPU in my laptop, I just bought a Phenom II P960 off ebay for $30 and threw it in. Works like a charm.
