AMD Turion ML-34 Overclocking question

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Okay, so my notebook has an AMD Turion 64 ML-34 CPU, and it occurred to me that if I wanted to get a new laptop, then perhaps I'd take my CPU and try a bit of overclocking on it in a new system--it would just be for fun, not for a computer I'd really use. So my question is this--it's a socket 754 CPU I believe--does anyone know about it's overclocking ability? I would think that it should OC decently according to thermal tolerances and voltage requirements, but I have no idea about die quality, etc. Anyone? It would be a fun little project, but I'd be worried about finding a decent S754 mobo available that is also has good overclocking options...

So you want to use that chip in a desktop system? That socket is for notebooks only so you wont find a desktop motherboard to support that chip.

What? That's not true at all--it's socket 754--nothing special from other socket 754 CPU's other than lower voltage requirements and a lower TDP. This thread shows an OC with the ML-32 (same as mine but half the cache) on a regular mATX motherboard: http://www.overclock.net/amd-cpus/57...ng-report.html

I stand corrected. You can do it with a modded bios. But did you read the rest of the linked thread?

My advise is don't vaste time on the ML. The best CPU for low power overclocking is the MT-40(or 42. If power/noise doesn't matter, go for Athlon 939/AM2. I am building a new rig with a uATX AM2 Asus board next. Still aiming for a quiet but overclocked PC.

Yeah--I was really hoping that someone might have had some hands-on experience with the ML-34 specifically (from what I understand, there are great variations between slightly different releases in terms of overclockability). The odd thing is they mention how the MT's are good for low-power overclocking while the ML's are not--not so sure I care about low power as opposed to just sheer overclocking regardless of the volts required--some people have dumped 1.7v into these things! (since I wouldn't much care if I fry the chip since I'd just be playing around). eh, I guess I'll just abandon the idea, maybe get another year out of my lappy. thanks a lot for the responses!
