Overclocking my CPU, but getting slower performance? - Page 2

post #11 of 20
Thread Starter 
I'm guessing there's no way of disabling my cpu throttling or something?

I don't understand it though. I don't think it's the heat, because I'm doing
re5 benchmarks on a really cold morning, where my CPU is staying under 55 degrees celcius, and its only averaging 50.6 fps on overclocked settings instead of 60.5 fps average on its default.

Overclocking a laptop = A bad Idea. Most of the cooling solutions in the past and even now have problems.. Best part is when the cooler fails and your laptop won't post.. or posts and shuts down. Point is, laptops have heating issues already because of the lack of airflow between the components. In gaming the gpu will be doing the heavy work, not the cpu. One thing people will overlook in a laptop and a worthy upgrade would be the hard drive. You will see your fps increase as the game has to get it's textures somehow!!

Throttling is an over heat protection or TM function built into the cpu, where it will decrease it's own multiplier to reduce it's heat.

hy nate302 thx for the answer ! i allrdy OC my hd 5470 , even if im new at this i wanted to try with SETFSB but seems it doesnt work , i did put the ICS9LPRS365BGLF , free clock generator for intel hm55, but nothing has changed
did u try to use SETFSB ? and do u have some more advices ? ^^

If you want to overclock a laptop, I won't give my advice, simply because I belive it to be a bad Idea. If you did oc the video card, I would leave it at that.

I too want to clock my Laptop despite all the nay sayers. I have an i7 720QM and jsut want to beef it up slightly so I can put that Kingston 1600mhz Ram into it. Nothing special,. Ive already under clocked the Video card since its my wife's and she doesn't game, And heating isnt and issue I have a nice fan platform.

What utilities are there that would allow this? Can the i7 720QM handle and actually utilize 1600hmz Ram, this is the stuff im talking about

Before you consider overclocking it, check the hardware specs on the laptop itself first, it may already support the ram. If that is the case, a slight overclock on the cpu may not be necessary, and as the efficiency on a laptop (even while plugged in) the gain wouldn't be so significant to be worth it. To check the cpu as far as the ram is concerned, you'll want to lookup the intel specs.

As other have said, overheating could be causing it, its not as stable as you think, or maybe the power supply is not sufficent for the new clocks, as its a laptop.

It's why, even if the laptop has a good fan system, it's not worth overclocking. Laptops are designed with the smallest requirements in mind. The "power supply" is a very good example. It is designed specifically for the laptop and what should be it's max usage with stock parts. The problem with overclocking a laptop fits in this list : very unreliable, very unpredictable overclocks, subject to heating issues even without an overclock, most likely to have voltage supply problems past stock, there may be performance bottlenecks in the laptops main-board that would be unforeseen as most manufacturers will squeeze as much as they can out of a series.. This list has so many reasons NOT to overclock a laptop it's ridiculous, it's simply not designed for it. I would even argue an Alienware ( now owned by dell ) would be an example of a laptop not to overclock.. the video chipset on the mainboard is most likely going to be pumping the heat, if not the added hard drive.

Do yourself a favor, don't overclock a laptop, you are far more likely to damage it in the process than with a desktop, or keep the performance the same with worse efficiency.
