Overclocking Acer Travelmate 4600 - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Does anyone know any sucess stories on laptop OC on a Intel Core2 Duo T7300?Trying to OC my laptop, Acer TM5720 but so far none of the recomended CPU/GPU-software has worked for me.. Seems to be difficult to get it working since few ppl are in the laptop-OC business and hence few Bios are written fore the purpose. Have lowered the temp in my system with amazing sucsess though, so that should not be any problem, but still no respons when running the programs.

Buy a desktop. It's impractical to overclock a laptop.

The limitations for overclocking a laptop are the same as those for overclocking a SFF OEM PC. The OEM motherboard, mainly. If you want to overclock a laptop you'll need to figure out the PLL and to use in set FSB or clockgen. You'll have to do the research because it takes quite a bit of time to figure out.

My best laptop overclock is from 1.4Ghz to 2.24Ghz but it took quite a while to accomplish. Still I purchased that laptop knowing I was going to try and overclock it as the system bus was locked by the manufacturer and it used a higher spec memory, allowing a very high stable overclock.

But it's so cheap to upgrade a cpu nowadays it's not even worth it.

I bought a t8300 2.4Ghz cpu for my laptop for just over $100 and sold my old t5550 1.8Ghz cpu for $70. My current laptop would require hardware modification to overclock as the PLL is locked. I could just as easilly buy a extreme edition cpu for $200 and overclock to 3Ghz.

The real question to ask is what do you gain?
