Overclocking an Atom N450

post #1 of 65
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I have a Acer Aspire One (AO532h) and its got the N450 in it and I was hoping someone out there has overclocked it. I know you can use a software program but cant seem to remember the name or what I need to locate on the motherboard to actually adjust the clocks.

And before someone says it, I know this is a netbook and its gonna kill battery life, heat will eventually kill it, etc. Im not looking for a full time overclock, just something to give me a boost whiles shes plugged in at home and being properly cooled

Give SetFSB a shot, that is what I used to overclock my netbook.

I downloaded the program but haven't been able to find the PLL. Im having tons of trouble trying to tear this thing down and find the little chip, does anyone know what it should be? I know the motherboard is made by foxconn

with SetFBS you need to find the specific motherboard model that your netbook has. While i presume that the n450 chipsets are too new to have their motherboard listed in Setfbs. I am also currently in the process of overclocking my eee pc 1001p. No luck though.

I have heard of linux supporting overclocking using command lines. So you might want to look into that.

It would make sense that they wouldnt be in the settings because when I downloaded setfsb the website said it had just got its first update in a year...

Normally yes but since its was made by Acer the motherboard only shows up as "Acer AO532H". I know its made by foxconn because it is visible when you take off the bottom but the model number is covered up by a part of the chassis that I cant seem to get off.

I am also on the quest to find the PLL on a 532h mobo.

I have a Gateway LT2102h which is the exact same as the Acer 532h. I even went to Acer's site to grab a bios update, updated with Acer's Rev 1.20 and no problems.

Nice little nettops these are, have mine running Win 7 Enterprise and it runs well. You can add take out the 1gb stick and add a 2gb DDR2-800 stick in it, also you can add in a Broadcom Crystal HD for 720p/1080p movies that play flawlessly with the card.

I have neither of these yet but they are available hehe.

I will post back with any info I find. Looks like we are going to have to take these apart to find the PLL. I believe it is under the keyboard, sure isint on the back of it, lol.

Would the gains be really worth the OC? I have a Netbook as well with an atom cpu but I can't see any more power being squeezed out of it.
