My m11x-r2 was blessed enough to be stable at 2.85Ghz (i5) @ 185mhz and with the GT 335M OC'd at 580 / 1392 / 960 which scored 8957 in 3DMark06 and in Vantage of P3862.

I've just got myself an i5 M11X and have been overclocking myself. The bios mod is great and has really helped my push the little 335M.

I'm confused about your processor OC. Unfortunately my RAM seems to be limiting my OC to 170FSB (Using setPLL). I'm looking into flashing my RAM with higher CAS settings to enable me to go further. How the hell did you get 2.85GHZ?? eek.gif

The multi on the i5 is 12 with both cores loaded and 14 with a single core in use (Hardly ever). Most realistic case is you've taken the CPUZ reading of 2.8Ghz when the CPU is at idle using ThrottleStop. Even so that’s an FSB of 200! What did you do to get stable that high? The record on notebook review is around 192FSB I think on the i5.

Any tips would be great as I want to go further than 2.0GHZ wink.gif

Thats not 2.85GHz then. Thought that was a little. High. I'm still stuck at 166 frown.gif

I need to find the time to play around with my RAM timings.

I also changed my harddrive to an OCZ vertex 2 today. Amazing bit of kit. Has made the laptop very snappy!

In order to install your 2nd you must first buy this:

9.5mm sata to sata 2nd hdd hard drive caddy for laptop - eBay (item 290534443125 end time May-15-11 00:44:43 PDT)

This one fits PERFECTLY! Delivery is hella fast also. I ordered it on Wednesday and received it Friday. :83:

Anyways enjoy the video. Watch the whole thing before you start because I made a mistake so you don't have to! smile.gif Always uncut, unedited ;p (lazy AZN)

Watch the video when it's up smile.gif

Hey RagingAzn628 I bought an Alienware Mx14 about a month ago and I was researching my graphics card when I came across this thread,
If you could tell me it'd be appreciated my question is how did you overclock your graphics card?
A reply would be appreciated
