Hi,

I just downloaded League of Legends and I it play with my friends, but everytime a match starts I am the last one to load in.
I have the AMD E-300 APU, with 1,3 GHz clockspeed, and the minimum requirements of the game are 2 GHz. The game runs fine, it's just the loading that goes slowly.
Is there any way I can overclock my E-300? I don't care if it will consume alot of power, my laptop is always connected.
I have added a screenshot of my CPU-Z as attachment

Thanks in advance

I am not familiar with the game, but maybe it's your hard drive? Could be a 5400rpm drive. Could you please check your cpu usage while it's loading a match? Either on-screen display or windowed mode.

There is no way to overclock that chip. I have a laptop with an A4-1250, which is a dual core 1GHz and it's terrible. Everything takes forever to load and those cores are easily saturated. It's acceptable for simply office tasks and some light (very light) browsing, nothing more.

I just deleted the game and almost everything else. I have some 7200 Rpm hard drives laying around, but can I replace a laptop hard drive?
I am going to reinstall the game, see you in 2 days lol. Even the most tiny patch ever takes hours

I just checked and it is indeed a 5400RPM hard drive. Is there any way I can speed it up a little bit?

how much ram does your laptop have?
if its 2gb, you'll get a better performance boost by upgrading to 4gb ram instead of replacing the 5400rpm hdd.

There is a utility called Brazos Tweaker that can squeeze some extra performance out of AMD E series APU's. I had an E300 in a Lenovo Laptop and had a light overclock going. Just make sure you're playing on a hard table like surface, it will get warm. GPU performance was better than expected but the 1.3 CPU really drug things down.

replacing the hard drive with an SSD would make the biggest difference. a 7200rpm drive wouldn't make enough of a difference over the 5400 in there to bother with.
find the model of your laptop and search google/youtube for how to replace the hard drive. It's usually pretty straight forward.

I already tried that, but I don't really trust it. CPU-Z says my clock speed is 4 GHz (yeah right, with an AMD E-300?) but my task manager still says 1,3

Thanks, I will look into that

I would not waste ANY money on that POS of a laptop. I'd put it up for sale and use the money you get to buy something better.

I have personal experience with the next tier up, the E-350, and it is the worst pile of trash I have ever tried to use. It can't even play 720p YouTube videos without massive stutter on a fresh windows install and 8GB of RAM. Even browsing websites like OCN.. scrolling through a thread would cause lag. Tried several browsers too and all had the same result.

Don't waste your money. A SSD is nice but it will not fix a junk CPU.

Beggers can't be choosers man. The E-300 is probably valued at $5 as a CPU. What do you expect? Brazos Tweaker is your only option to squeeze some extra performance out of it.

Yeah, I wasn't really planning to. My month salary is €35/month, so I'm saving up for a €300 PC. Yay I'm so rich.
Also, I can't sell this laptop, cause the screen is broken (I connected it to an external monitor)

I just don't think it actually works. I have already overclocked it using Brazos, but after I restarted my PC the clockspeed was back at 1,3.

You have to put the program or it's shortcut in windows startup folder so it starts with windows.

I agree, don't invest a cent into this pile. For the price of an SSD you could get a much better computer.
