i'm an owner of a m90, which i recently received from dell in substituion of an e1705.
Talking with abo, the developer of setFSB, it seems the m90 mounts a Cypress clock generator. There are real possibilities he can develop a version of setfsb that can interact with our notebook. The only thing we need now is the pll number (something like
It's written on a chip on the motherboard. If someone can help me finding it, we will probably enjoy a new crysis experience
I've had my E1705 for 4 months now, and I have unlocked my bios so that I can overclock my videocard. Now I want to see if I can overclock my CPU. It's a T7200, but unfortuanlly I can't find a thread on that any where.
i bought GTA IV the oher day and installed it on my laptop so i start running it and it had put restrictions on my specs -_- is there anyway i can turn these off i looked at a few sites that say you have to run it on the command line ive tried that but it wont work :
i have a Dell XPS specs are in sig + i overclocked my dual nVidia 8700m GTs to 650 core clock 1100 Memory clock and 1600 shader clock
I'm getting my E1705 back from repair tomorrow and I'm going to push the thing to it's limits. I used to frequent these forums before they were redesigned, and it seems my old user name is gone as well -- so I get to start back over.
Using I8kfangui, and a PA-13 or a PA-15 -- whats the easiest way to push the laptop to it's "safest" limits.
I noticed the "new" JuanLu bios lets you overclock via software now which is nice. Depending on my bios revision once I can check again, which should I pick? I hear of some folks using the GTX bios on the GS, but like I said -- I'm so out of the loop now that it's not funny.
I'll probably look into dropping a FX2500 in there at some point in the near future, is there a guide to hardmodding the E1705 like this?
Anyhow, if some veterans will chime in and give this newb all over again some guidance to do this right, let me know.
I have a e1705 Geforce go 7900gs oc'd to 450/600. Also I have the power supply that is included with the laptop 90watts. I have seen people here in forums that o'cd there card up to 600 core or more. I flashed my rom using the 375/507 to unlock my bios and then i use rivatuner to overclock my video card coz I want to know the limit of my card. And it reached 455/600 so i underclock it to 450 just for safe distance.
Now, I am using ntune to o'c my card and there is no testing whether it will work with the core I specified so I assume again that its 450/600.
My questions will be,
1. What is the max core/mem overclock that is safe for my 90 watts power supply w/o increasing the voltage to 1.24volts?
2. I create a profile in ntune that I enable the overclock (450/600) everytime I will play 3d games and I get it back (370/507) . Is that ok? Will it harm my videocard?
I got a rev 1 card. I am using a windows vista w/ dell performance driver, 2gb ram and 1.73ghz core duo cpu. Weird I got 152 increase in score in 2005 3dmark when using vista to xp . My score is 7196. And also I don't want to use nibitor to o'cd my card .
Couple things Bought from Dell 3+ years ago Just installed a new hard drive with Vista Ultimate Core Duo @ 1.88 Running @ 1.00 Original Ram: 1000 Just installed: 4000, rated at 3320 Intergrated 945G GPU: Maximum allowed memory is 240 Current memory is 42ish, never changes .....
CPU stock FSB clock: 267 (2.4ghz) Overclocked CPU clock: 301 (2.7ghz)
Now I noticed an option on motherboard tab "PCIe slot 1: 2500mhz" should I increase the PCIe clock? to about 2700mhz just like the processor, or how much should I move it, or do I even need to move it? Is there any benefit of playing with pcie clock, or what does it effect in the system in terms of hardware?
Love this site, I'm glad I registered. I've been using the website for a couple of months but haven't had to post because it's been able to answer all my questions through searching.
I've recently undervolted using the guide here to get my temps down and managed to get it to 1.025 volts with a drop of about 12* on average.
I need to go out and get some new thermal past because lets face it... It's dell and it should just be assumed that after you've had it for a couple of months you have to replace the generic thermal past .....
I just sold out my three week old macbook pro 15 unibody on ebay....useless filthy piece of crap...utterly over-priced block of aluminium.
And now I am typing this on my DELL studio xps 1640 .I have a simple question, Will it be extremely risky if I try to overclock my gpu, ati mobility radeon hd3670 512mb gdrr3? Also, I am a gamer, but not one of those
who faints if the fps drops by a point. I mostly play games like gta san andreas, cod4, world of warcraft, fear, soldier of fortune, assassin's creed, prince of persia, diablo, half-life, far cry , mafia, nfs etc. Is it necessary to overclock?
You can see the processor I have in my Signature, Core 2 Extreme X9000.
Basically, I've never dabbled in overclocking before. However I have been running a lot of CPU intensive programs recently, and decided it might be time to try and overclock the CPU. I have a few queries though.
1: Is it normal for the fans to be on full blast when overclocked? I put it up to 3.4GHz, and as soon as I started my computer it sounds like it's going to take off...
2: Will this void my warranty? In the BIOS Dell says it can cause problems and run down the life quickly - However it doesn't say it'll void the warranty. Confirmation anyone?
3: In reference to question 1, if @ 3.4GHz it will continue to sound like a jumbo jet, what speed/s can I go to without it maxing out the fan?
4: My temperature for my CPU is currently jumping from between 48 and 61 degrees quite rapidly. Is this normal when overclocked?
This notebook has been out for a while, and Iím sure the stuff I want to do now have already been done. SoÖIím hoping for some good answers, so I can pursue the things I want to do with my old trusty. Considering I donít have any other CPU right now, please leave out the pin mod option at this time. Iím trying to work with what I have right now,
First I would like to ďOverclockĒ the CPU (Pentium M 740), so let me know when, what, where and which programs youíve used to overclock this particular model. Will do the overclocking first, to see if I want to shell out something on a Pentium M 770
Now that the most important part of what I want to do is out of the way; would an x1800 work in my notebook?
Is it possible? I have tried nearly everything and nothing supports this card! I want to run fallout with decent frame rates, and it just isn't possible without overclocking. I am using windows 7 RC 32 bit.
I wanted to know if anyone has successfully done it or if it's even possible to do on this laptop. Sorry if this is a duplicate thread but sorting through 498 pages of information proved to be a bit daunting. I was looking into a bit and it supposedly possible to do via rivatuna but I figured I'd ask around before fiddling with it myself.
how to overclock the P8600 processor but had no good luck, I know I can't overlclock through the BIOS, but I've heard of using programs such as SETFSB, but I don't know how exactly how I can use this program for my processor specifically. Does anyone know how to overclock my processor P8600 (1006 Mhz)
Here is some additional information:
DELL STUDIO XPS 16 Intel Core 2 Duo Processor P8600 : 2.4GHz/1066MHz FSB/3MB Cache 1GB ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4670 Video Card 4GB OF DDR3 RAM
If there is any other information that you need please ask, I would really like to overclock make it to 2.8 Ghz or
I would like to overclock my GeForce 9400M G video card just a lil to give me a better gaming edge.. For that I would need ur help I dont know what software to use and which one works best (had more options) or if I need to download custom drivers for that software..
I also wouldnt mind over clocking my processor 2.4 Ghz p8600 intel core 2 duo...
