    Hey, that's cool. A 30% overclock with practically the same power draw as stock (<3% increase in power draw at full load over stock). Congrats. :toast:

    Sorry, I know next to nothing about AMD / ATi. :eek:

    For the Asus laptop have you tried setFSB for CPU overclocking?

    Saw a hint that ICS9LPR362AGLF or ICS9LPR363DGLF may be the PLL you want. If it's locked you may have to do some hardware modding.

    I owned 3 or 4 trophies for my old lappy's overclocks. Too bad I over heated it to the point of death. Still got $ for the parts :)

    What lappy are you on? MacBook? Lol

    I've tried everything I could on the 1st page to try and overclock either my Athlon II Turion or 4200 Mobility and nothing seems to work. I got MSI after burner to read my clocks but When I slide the bar and hit apply it does nothing.

    Any tips some1 here must have overclocked 1 or the other and can share the knowledge of how he did it.

    hi i am going to give it a shot as well. i have an ancient HP ze5500.
    its a pentium 4 mobile 2.3 Ghz 512KB. with an ati igm (cant remeber the number) video chip.
    in atitool, it's able to produce a stunning avg 8 fps:D
    it runs stock 180 Mhz, got it to 240 easy but no performce gain due to 100% cpu load.

    i already ripped the thing apart, cleaned the fans and heatsinks and applied some artic silver.
    i has dual fans and cooling system looks great imo.

    bios realy won't let me change anything, so the software tools will come in realy handy.
    i tryed to copy the bios, and tryed to open it in phoenix bios editor, wont open it:wtf:
    it's phoenix, but isnt reconised as one. anyone got expiriance on this?

    got to sort out some problems first btw, i keep getting bsod, i think there's a crappy driver.
    when running safe mode no problems.

    when i get results il post back

    I wanna do this thing too. Ive got Turion M520

    I guess our last hope would be the next release of AOD which will support overclocking
    in Champlain.

    ATI Mobility Radeon and MSI Afterburner

    For the dudes with ATI Mobility Radeon cards using MSI Afterburner:

    Download GPUTool to an accessible folder and run it. Download MSI Afterburner (even if you already have Afterburner on your PC make sure you have it updated to the latest version). Navigate to the folder you installed it to (usually C:\Program Files (x86)\MSI Afterburner) and open the MSIAfterburner.cfg file using Wordpad. Find the following setting:

    Code:
    EnableUnofficialOverclocking	= 0
    and change it to:

    Code:
    EnableUnofficialOverclocking	= 1
    Copied from here.

    Overclocking your laptop is asking for trouble, especially if it already running hot wich alot of laptops do, its like asking for some KFP

    Hello everyone ! I am new here and i had read allmost all pages on this thread. I have installed setfsb on my laptop Acer 7520 with Turion TK 55 (ATHLON X2 1800 Mhz). I have tested all the pll chips that are in the list, and they are many...took me 1 hour... but none worked...Can somebody help me next?

    LOL, when i said "can somebody help me ? " i didn`t imagine that SOMEBODY will help me :D. Thankyou Somebody ! It realy helped me, that guy had exactly my laptop model. So i had installed NTUNE and it works like a charm. I have placed on my desktop 2 shortcuts of the "overclocked mode" and for the "basic mode" so i can switch anytime to the other state. So now i can go from 1800 MHz to 2250 MHz in a second. Everything works better now. I must mention that i am on Windows 7-64 bit , and there are a lot of my old stuff notworking on it. I had to put a shortcut of the "ntune service.exe" file in win Startup folder for that the soft starts with windows (other Win7 blurrs)...I didn`t overclock the videocard because it was allready hot when forced to 100 percent. In 2 words - total success ! :D

    Wish I could OC my Processor in my Laptop, Dell Inspiron XPS Gen 1 with a Gallatin Core (Northwood Extreme/ 2MB L3) P4 at 3.4GHz HT (Win 7 Detects it at 3.39 which is bogus when Win XP detects at 3.4GHz) Trust me this Thing has 3 fans in it.

    Already lots of people overclocked theyr laptops. It`s harder cause we used to do that in BIOS, on laptops you can rarely do that. In my case i use it now in the place of the desktop computer and everything in plus is wellcome as working power. When its about netbooks, we are using them i guess mostly for internet. And it will be very hard to see an improvement about surfing on the net. Usualy the internet works bad because of the link, the speed you get the signal from the internt provider. Even with a powerfull computer , its no improvement if you have a slow link. So i believe its no use to overclock a netbook, i`d better try use the power form the cells more efficient so that i`ll have even more workingtime with no powerplug. Many times, getting a better wireless signal (by moving closer to the router or reorientate the netbook) will dramaticaly improve netsurfing on the netbook. Would anybody use the netbook to create mp3`s from waves? Or xvid`s from dvd`s ? Low chances cause netbooks don`t usualy have CDs or DVDs in it.
