Non-bios overclocking software?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
My parents got me a lenovo w700 for christmas this year. I am overclocking it right now... I would do it within the bios, but the lenovo bios doesn't let me change anything. Does anyone know of a decent overclocking program? I know ASUS has their TurboV thing, which I have on my father's computer.


I am running Win7 x64, and the cpu is an Intel Core 2 Extreme Q9300 (not the Core 2 Quad Q9300)

Edit: My bad! QX9300, not the Q9300. msinfo32 told me a q9300, cpu-z says qx9300

You can try Intel XTU (google it). not sure if that would work though.

Otherwise you may be able to swap out the motherboards, not too sure if they run atx or what, but 775 mobos run around 60-100 $ depending on what you are looking for.

Not a supported platform. As for the motherboard, it's on a laptop, and I have no desire to mess with that at the moment.

Do you know of any other software?

Why would you ever overclock a laptop? The heatsinks are so small and higher power laptops are already hot as balls.

Why? Because I can underclock it too for a bit more battery life. And my heatsink still has more to give on the 'stock' thermal paste. Ill re-do it with arctic silver when I get around to getting it, and it should lower it another 4-5c down to 51c under load at stock speed.

Custom fan settings are great that way tongue.gif

So do YOU know of any software that will let me do what I need to do?

ThrottleStop 2.95

Give ThrottleStop a try. It can do some fun things with a QX9300 like increase the VID voltage and multiplier as high as you like. It also supports the new Sandy Bridge stuff.

Check out this thread for more info.

scook9 uses ThrottleStop on his QX9300

Edit: I forgot. The latest version has the multiplier unlock feature (UNLK button) built into the GUI so it is easy to find. The Reset button returns your QX back to its default multiplier.

Go down to the 4th post on this page and you will see what a Lenovo W700 can do.

Laptops auto underclock. Intel C1E and EIST or whatever they use now.
