My dad has just given me his dell latitude c510 laptop i think its about 2 ears old i cant remember any way its got an intel celeron 1.06 ghz proccesor.i was wondering what you guys thought as to how far i could overclock it in terms of reliabilty and lack of good cooling. its pretty much perfect for what i need it for but it could be a bit faster its got 128 ram which i was gona upgrade to 1028, do u think this is to much ram considering the proccesor wont be that fast and it will be a mismatch.thanks Dave

I would not recommend OCing it. Laptops in a way are already OCing and pushing it any further would burn it out. If anything, with a laptop, You would want to Underclock it if it runs too hot, Or the cooling thing for undr it

On laptop, the most recommended Overclock is somewhere in the 0-0mhz range. Its not much, and you probably won't see a performance difference, but you won't destroy and light your computer on fire either.

OC a laptop isn't worth it. Would get way to hot and run the battery dry real quick.<br />

Offtopic: I've actualy set a computer on fire by running it hard :S my friends still make fun of me for it.

Nope, desktop working on it live with wires. Wasn't working anyways but still scary as h*ll.<br />
<br />
Also bout the underclocking might be a good idea like BenHagerty said, I know my laptop gets really hot on my lap from just surfing the web, but then again dell bios :S.

They won't work because Dell makes it so you can't OC in anyway

They do work, but they are incredibly ustable and insanely poor quality

There really is no point to OCing a lappy, The small performance gain isn't worth the risk of killing it
