AMD Turion 64 x2 overclock

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello all,

I have a friend who has a Toshiba laptop and he would like to overclock the processor. Now obviously he didn't build it so his bios doesn't have the ability to overclock. We already tried AMD overdrive, but that didn't work. Is there any software that can help him do this?

Note: This would not be a huge overclock

Thanks in advance!

I would not recommend overclocking a Turion CPU. The cooler and motherboard were not designed for overclocking.
So the small performance increase isn't worth risking your entire laptop.
