Default Re: Is It Possible To Overclock AMD E-350 Dual Core Brazos?

Chips from the manufacturer are not set to a specific speed for no reason. Your 1.6GHz chip probably has a max clock rate of around 2GHz if not higher. They are underclocked and then locked by the manufacturer. They underclock them for many reasons, heat generation and stability being the biggest two.

Now, if you unlock the chip you can increase the amount of voltage that the chip receives, and a few other things (e.g. FSB) to get a higher throughput from the CPU.

Given that this is a laptop, my advice is simple; don't.

The laptop may have sufficient cooling for the amount of work being done by the chip in its current state, but an increase of even .1 GHz can quickly change the cooling workload. It can also cause instability and crashing. Also, your assessment of your cooling is probably not after an hour of full CPU load.

An AMD chip core, with no cooling, will physically crack after 10 seconds (I've done this, and not on purpose) meaning no more chip. If the CPU gets hot enough, quick enough, the temperature controls won't be in place to send the kill switch fast enough.

The above is an absolute extreme worst case, and the probability of it happening to your laptop is next to nil. However, it is still possible that you change something so drastically that permanent damage is done.

My advice not to is simply driven by the fact that your laptop sounds to be your primary PC. If this is your first venture into Overclocking, I suggest going on ebay and buying some old crap PC. The older chips (2000-2004) were a little harder to unlock, but you learned a lot in the process. Plus, if you dork it up, it's just a crappy old PC off ebay.

I encourage you to do some overclocking as it is quite challenging and intellectually stimulating, but I would STRONGLY advise against using your main PC as the science experiment.

Yes my laptop is my primary pc that I heavily rely on, I have an older desktop that is hardly used any more so I will give it a go on that..

Google tweakhound windows 7 and follow the guide until you are satisfied.

Don't know if this still works, but you can take it all apart and look for a PLL number on the board. Then try a couple hundred pll fsb programs to see if its supported in one of them.

The E-450 is soldered in place :/ Not that there's any upgrade for it.

Hello. I am a gamer and was wondering the same thing. I would like to overclock my Toshiba laptop *Satellite C655D-S5303* Right now it is running
Windows 7 Professional x64
3.00GB *Hard drive 198 free of 284*
E2 Vision Motherboard
Dual Core AMD E-350 1.6GHz Processors
and AMD 6310 Radeon HD Graphics. Please help me if possible, I will stay updated because I would love to play with ArmA 2 CO with at least a little bit of Very High settings. Would love to have 1.9GHz or at least 2.0

Probably not. Most OEMs do not give you many options in terms of tweaking BIOS settings outside of the boot order.

Was you answering my question or his? It is helpful both ways, I also have a old Desktop PC with a Nvidia 5200 game card. Not sure what the processor it but thanks.

That was to answer your question.

Its not a great idea to OC any laptop (unless its a high end ... like a ROCK etc) generating heat is the main problem.

Could there be a way to OC it with a cooling pad for my laptop to sit on? I have found one at Amazon for about 3 to 4 dollars. Like I said, 1.9GHz would be all or at least 1.8GHz could help out a lot. Because I read a little more and this one guy said that BF3 runs good on low settings, and that 1.9GHz could help out. So hopefully I can find something, I just don't want to kill my laptop, it is all I have for modernized options right now.
