Acer Laptop Overclock!!!

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Im happy to say I have overclocked my laptop.

My Acer Aspire 5100-3357 Specs:
AMD Turion 64 MK-36 @ 2.0Ghz (2.2Ghz OCed)
ATi Moblity Radeon X1100 @ 300Mhz (400Mhz OCed)
2GB 667mhz DDR2 @ 5-5-5-15
120Gb HDD
Windows Vista Premium

Using Clockgen I was able to get up to 2.2ghz without any issues in heat or system stability. the idle temp is 35*C with my notebook cooler and 44*C without cooler.

Next I overclocked my graphics card. I had no help from ATitool or rivatuner, both couldnt recognize the card. I turned to PowerStrip and was able to bring the core up to 400mhz (equal to M.R. X1150), but unfortunately was limited to a 400mhz max by the program.

***After Ocing my PCWizard 2007 processor bench went from 8300 to 9600. Superpi 1m times from 44.172s to 40.552s***

***After the GPU overclock my CSS stress test scores went from 33FPS to 43FPS. A gain of 10FPS which really helps when I play online.***

Also After opening my lappy I noticed it has an open mini pci-express bus and was wondering if there were any graphics cards available for it, all I've found were wireless cards.

Thanks.

Anyone know of any other overclocking programs I could try for my IGP?

Also would love to know more about this open slot(pretty sure its mini pci express):

Hi, i found that really informative, because i have the same laptop(with less ram), and it took me time to find this.
Anyways, i was able to overclock my graphics card (radeon xpress 200m(1100)),but couldnt overclock my processor (AMD turion mk-36). I used clockgen,but as i apply the new settings,it just goes back to normal,no idea what the problem is.
Just one more thing,how do you keep your turion mk-36 running at 44C without notebook fans?? i get 50-53 without,andabout 40 with the notebook fans.
thanx

I have an acer aspire 3100. if i recall the 5100 and 3100 are teh same except the 3100 uses a 3200+ sempron insted of a turion X2. I'll try this, but my battery life sux enough already. Can't even play CSS as is tho I hope the stock cooler can handle the extra heat :/

OK. so I got clockgen to work, got a 200mhz OC just like u CPU tops out around 70c on "core" in Speedfan. 95c appears to be the max operational temp for the keene...

I can't get the trial of powerstrip to work tho... however it says my GPU is @ 567mhz ??? any help on oc'n my IGP?

I know! I found a higher capacity battery and hopefully I'll be able to purchase it soon. there are 2 higher capicty batteries. both have the same model number: BATBL50L8H. one is 4800mah, the other is 5200mah. my current battery is a measly 2000mah. I get about half-an-hour(approx) under absoloute full load, and as I said if the bottom of the laptop is well exposed to open air I top out around 70c. I finally got the GPU OC'd aswell. 400mhz just like the original poster...

can anyone tel me what the ACPI temp is in speedfan?

also what's a safe range for HDD temps? it has gotten pretty warm, like around 60c

Powerstrip shouldnt be a trial...its free

As for heat I do run a notebook cooler when I play games and it seems to stay cool.And they battery life wasnt cut down at all really, lost about 20mins from the est. time

well i DL'd the proper powerstrip, got it to 400. 1.8ghz via clockgen. It gets rly hot. got to 78 on the core while playing wing commander saga... probly the gpu passing heat into the cpu via the shared hsf... i'm getting a 5200mah high-cap battery over my current puny 2000mah. i'll order a cooler pretty soon probly too.

sry bout the bad grammer, typing one handed(left), and on the phone...
