COMPLETE NOOB, really need some help

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
ive overclocked my droid phone but have NO experience with altering computers.

i've got my new VAIO laptop with an Intel i5 M 460 @2.53 ghz and the integrated (intel HD) graphics card, and want to run my games a little better, so naturally I was lead to this site. Ive never used Bios and only occasionaly used command prompt.

Whats the max i can overclock to while being stable? battery life is NOT an issue, ive heard you can go to 4ghz, that would be really cool but sounds unstable.

So can someone guide me through this? thanks for the help

laptops dont really OC....at all. Honestly. Desktop overclocking is what you are referring to. It's unfortunate, but with such a small form factor, heat becomes an issue fast, and companies lock their bios(bioses?)

To put it simply, you can't. The BIOS is locked on laptops, and everything you would need is in the BIOS.

Secondly, it would create wayyy too much heat for the processor.

3rd, overclocking it would be useless for games because the IntelHD itegrated graphics just isn't powerful enough to do anything.

If your determined, try setFSB.
