ok well i have some wierd data here
with screenshots to prove it
my cpu went from 1600mhz to 1668mhz on its own
[img=http://img329.imageshack.us/img329/4250/1668mhzta6.th.jpg]
[img=http://img329.imageshack.us/img329/4250/1668mhzta6.jpg]
i also was able to oc my gpu using power strip 104mhz on the clock clock and around 50 mhz on the memory clock
w00t i gained an extra 10 fps in the css video stress test :D

the only reason im posting two links for each pic is because i dont no which will work
lol dell's are weird. that's all i have to say, i bet it's just the fsb flucating, nothing to be worried about, it's only 88 mhz, not that much of a difference. i can oc my x1400 from 432 core 391.5 mem to 526 core 441 mem. so that's 94 core and 49.5 mhz, so that's probably about right.

Mine fluctuates about 8Mhz most of the time. Yours is a DELL and I doubt that the sensors are accurate so I'd ignore it, whatever happens it's fine, it's not doing any damage:D

you're talking about the cpu speed right? oh and sensors....i guess they're close enough 30 to 40 c cpu is not hot enough for me to feel the case on top and feel it. hdd at 30-35 is cool to the touch to, maybe off by a degree or so, but not to bad all in all.

Chang I think I might write a proper article on how to overclock laptops, what do you think. And then post it on digg.com or something. If I do, could you be my proof-reader/information-integrity checker?

GCSE is the major english exam for 16yr olds. (Oh dear, I'm halfway to 32) It is really important for a number of reasons the first being which universities you can get into.
I'm hoping for A*'s across the board.

well...im halfway to 28 right now, but in a couple of weeks i'll be halfway to 30 lol, || that much closer to driving :p. oh sweet bf2 runs on a x1400 YAY!!!!! and i saw your system specs and thinking about the upgrade, unless they come out with a better gfx card for our laptop, or you need the cpu power, 1.6 is fast enough. i got my 2ghz c2d b/c of the deal, it was like spend over 1200 and get 30% off or something like that, amazing deal. then when i rma'ed my original 80 gb hdd i got a better one...i was soo surprised. now all i need is for a new vga to come out (i have been saying that alot, lol) and get that....

the nvidia 7300 turbocache is a pos
i bought 1 from dell spare parts thinking it was better and i installed and played bf2 on full settings at 800x600 with sooooo much lag, so i put my x1400 back in and everything was fine :D
im actually thinking of buyinga 2.0ghz c2d but i dunno

Frickin' awesome dude! Welcome to the club:cool:

7300 trubocache is crap. My advice , when you don't have the $$$ to go for a modern powerful card, don't opt for a modern crap card. get a good old one. 9800pro wouild pwn even the 7300GT. There's no competition. or get an X800 if you can. Yeah great, so a 7300 has shader model 3, but it you'll never be able to use it during games because it doesn't have the power, you'd be lagging like an X300se 32bit in FEAR.

x1400 pwns 7300 go. by quite a bit to i believe. and doesn't the x1400 mobility have shader model 3?
@frankie, that is a nice replacment laptop imo maybe i'll have my die and then get one with santa rosa and dx10 :cool: j/k this is pretty good for a laptop. the c2d is quite fast, but once again, i have to complain about the low fsb....it's just not fast enough, the large cache helps, but still...way to low imo.

Yes it does, sorry I misunderstood what he was saying. Best bet would be a X1600 mobility/Go 7600/X1800 mobility (ignore the X1700 - it's a 1600 with higher clock speeds)

Order of performance levels X600<Go 7300<X600 oc'd<X1400<X1600<X1700<Go7600<X1800.

But the X1600 is so small its able to be put into much thinner notebooks. And the X600 mobility overclocks like hell.

EDIT: Btw Chang, I just got Office 2007 to replace my old Office 2000. I'll tell you how it is when it finishes installing.

sounds sweet! unfortuantly for us e1505 people dell just doesn't want to offer a x1600...we will have to wait, or try to do something :)

Wow! Office 2007 is shiny! They've cut down a lot using the ribbon style, I don't like that bit so much, but I think I'll learn to love it.

Thanks for the heads up with Word:cool:
The X300's are ony marginally better than the Integrated solutions in benches, but they win out in overall smoothness in games as they have a proper architecture. This is very basic gaming btw:laugh:

yeah i know how you feel man. same with my laptop, but im supposed to make it last until college :shadedshu that is not happening. i really want dell to roll out a dx10 card for the e1505 line before they retire it, but i know that's not happening. GRRRR maybe it's time to buy a decent video card for the p4 desktop :banghead: (p4 feels so slow now...)
