Overclocked Intel Atom to 2.46ghz

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Hi bros

Some of you may have seen articles written about my Atom overclocking adventures.

http://www.slashgear.com/sony-vaio-p...-4ghz-0859671/

This was done using a Vaio P-25 with Z540 1.86 stock,2GB ram and 64gb SSD.

1.86ghz stock



2.30ghz stock

The Vaio P is passively cooled. I merely used an eraser to improve airflow by propping it up. Speedfan was used to monitor the temp.



2.40ghz CPU-Z screenshot


Windows rating after OC. Compared to stock rating of 2.4

This is the first time I've seen Windows Experience used as a "legitimate" benchmark, but good job I guess. Why no specifics on settings you tweaked to achieve this overclock?

hi mate

I used SetFSB to alter the FSB speed so as to ramp up the clock speedg.

Simple as that. No mods nothing. Just an eraser to prop up the Vaio P.



I just used Windows Exp for show. The primary benchmark was the Crystalmark

So an overclocked Atom is slower than a 7 year old P4

not sure about that but its zippy with vista for me even on stock settings. besides,

it can run dota and cs without lag so what more can i ask for from a 500gram "not a netbook"

I have a netbook with the N270 1.6 GHz Atom, not OC'd at all. I also have an i7 rig, and the netbook still feels very "snappy" to me in many instances; I love it. I would like to try putting the Atom on DICE.

So 1.86GHz to 2.3/2.4GHz with no voltage change seems like a lot of headroom is built in. I would like to see some real overclocking done on an unlocked BIOS to see what the true potential is on the chip. Is there a platform that supports this?
