[Laptop] Overclocking CPU or Graphic's Card.
« on: May 06, 2012, 11:56:02 AM »
Hey!

I'v clocked my Acer Aspire laptop with these specs:
Intel Core i5-430M 2.26GHz, 3MB L3 Cache CPU
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470 2Gig Hyper Memory
4 GB DDR3 Memory


I clocked it before i reinstalled the whole computer, now i can not find the program i used.
I did know the bad effekt of clocking a Laptop, but in my room i have it very cold also i have a cooling system under my laptop that keeps my laptop very cold. So it wont be over heated.

I wounder if there might be any more options for me so i can get my laptop a bif faster in games, I can play on Low graphics and some games Mid. I often play like World of warcraft, GTA, Anno and some games that don't really req a very good PC but i'm pooooor so i can't buy a better PC and i wdant a bit better gaming exp..

So any idéa :)

Thanks alot

Regards

I have always hated laptops for gaming lol

I built my own tower and it is easier to replace parts, keep cool and get stronger faster parts without having to buy a whole new machine.

Even with over clocking you wont be able to push to much more out of it.

The best thing to do, if you can is to start buying parts 1 at a time for a gaming tower :wink:

Yeah, i wish i could do that.

I get like 120€ every month. It's very little and i can't buy even 1 good part with that :P

I'm from Sweden so the money is kinda overrated xD

And my parents can't help, my dad is gone and my mum is even more poor..

I bought this Laptop of a friend for 100€ and it's kinda good, but i want more :P
I quess I must content myself with this computer.

To try and squeeze every ounce of power out of it when gaming you can do a few tricks. :cheesy:

1. Have my cleanmem program installed and have it run every 5 min via the task scheduler instead of 15 min. (Dont worry this is the free version)

2. The less things running in the background the more free resources the system will have. So close down almost every single thing you can when you game. You would be surprised when I go to a customers house and they complain things are running slow and I check and they have 90+ things running!

3. Be careful overclocking. The hotter things run the faster they go out. If you over clock push it as far as you can go without crashing. Keep things as cool as possible. When it comes to over clocking you have to raise the voltage a little at a time to handle it. It is this higher voltage that makes more heat. I myself have my AMD 6 core 3.3ghz overclocked to 3.8 ghz and then with turbo kicks up to 4.2 ghz. I use a 120 mm fan and keep my office cool.

4. In the games try to turn off as much as possible in the video. A trick is to have everything set to the lowest. Then sometimes you can get away with running it at a higher resolution which makes it look a lot better than running it at 800 x 600

5. Start saving for a new system :-)

Hey,

Nice Steps. I knew all these things :)

But you'r cleanmem program i didin't know about, so i will test it.

I'm aware of the background programs and i have like 2-3 running all the time. like nothing.

Also my laptop is always cold, like never gets hot. Why ? I have a cooling system under my laptop that has 4 fans. :)
It's an USB cooling system so it's on all the time and does not sound that much either.

My computer have 2 fans also and is running like a charm, also i keep it clean from dust and stuff :)

I do blow out my computer from dust with a compressor every month. :)


I will try to save for a new gaming system. But it's so hard and it will take time, if i save for one good system it will take like a year, maybe more.

And when i'm done that system will be bad :P
