Overclocking post

Put how much you've OC'd your graphics card in the past. for me it was:
Core: 576MHz >> 700MHz
Shaders: 1242MHz >> 1550MHz
Memory: 1008MHz >> 1080MHz

1008MHz >> 1080MHz

why so little?


never OC'd anything before. Don't feel like adding a better cooling system. Also my CPU is locked Razz Never tried the graphics card though.

more freaks it out,
tried to OC the cpu, but the memory controller/northbridge freaks and stops working (i figured this out because overvolting the mch makes it blue screen much later. but it still bsod's evantually so i cant OC from 2.83 to 2.93. which sucks!!!)

how do you overclock?

You just run something too big for your CPU to handle.

Change your BIOS settings to allow the CPU to go faster than its set limit.

That might be a little big of a change.

Yes but only if you have sufficient cooling for it. Hell you can get it to go to 7ghz if you had enough cooling. But since nobody can cool a processor that well without liquid helium pooring on it, it's best not to do that unless you want to start a fire Razz

Bottom line yet off topic: Don't stress an intel atom, it's too tiny to handle the heat.

awwwwwwwwwwwww


dats the one reason why a netbook sucks

It really all depends on the temperature. Test the netbook out and see how the hardware temperature is at different speeds. First learn about overclocking and multipliers of processors, THEN go ahead and test it out, otherwise you'll do something you may regret.

as long as you can cool it sufficiently, I would say you could get it to go up to 2ghz.
But yeah, do your homework on it first so you don't burn your house down... or just keep a fire extinguisher ready for trial-and-error testing Razz

yay hardware stuff!
I can make useful posts now. ^-^

oh, but a word of advice...

unless you are doing this for bragging rights, there's honestly no practical reason to do this.

If you want to run games on your computer, to go through the trouble to get your microprocessor to overclock would be stupid, (especially because you don't even know if your processor CAN be overclocked)

So I would just say get a gaming computer. The way you can tell if it has a processor built for gaming is if it says "extreme" next to the type.

For example, intell's new processor is the i7. The one that can be overclocked, almost to the point of melting, practically is i7-extreme.
These ones are built especially for overclocking.

summary: it ain't worth it, just buy a gaming computer... unless your doing this to be able to say "check it out, I got my processor to overclock, I'm so hard"

Razz Bad and WRONG!

I think you're all noobs on this subject so just read this. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Overclocking#Advantages

Gaming computers are advertised as such because they will never sell any other way with such poor specs.

well, whatever.
I don't claim to know anything about gaming computers specifically, but I do know about overclocking.

As far as "if it is worth" overclocking you computer... no.
It's a HUGE gamble. You don't know if your computer will work if you overclock it, even if you were able to get it to a certain speed, you don't know if you are cooling it right.

There's a reason all those Intell people and Hp and Dell and whatever the hell computer you have people sat there and assigned a microprocessor a certain number.

Let's test your buisness logic:
If a product can run a lot faster than what it is advertised to do... why would they sell it at such a low speed (especially processors, where a little bit faster is like twice the price)?

Use your brains people, you got it for a reason.
