Question about overclocking

2009-03-03, 13:48 PM

I have a Lenovo 3000 N 200 (0769 AB2) Laptop with Intel core 2 duo (T5450) processor. I want to overclock my CPU. So please tell me how I can do it. Here is some question about overclocking. Please answer them……

1)     Is computer’s other components like motherboard, RAM etc. are necessary directly or indirectly for overclocking?

2)     After overclocking CPU correctly, any problem can be seen in my laptop?

3)     After overclocking, can my computer become overheated and overheat can damage my laptop? If it becomes overheated, then is there any solution for it?

4)     Incorrect overclocking can damage only my processor or whole computer or any other component of my laptop?

5)     Whet is the maximum GHz of my overclocked CPU?

I am waiting for a helping hand, please help me.

You can use software overclocking because usually OEM BIOS doesn't allow BIOS overclocking. SetFSB is a popular overclocking utility. This information is provided AS-IS. I am not liable for any damage that may result as I am providing this information for educational purposes.


1: I don't fully understand the question.


2: Tons of problems can be had if you don't know how to overclock properly.


3: Yes. Your laptop can be damaged permanently. It all depends on the extent of the damage. The costs of repairing damage may outweigh any benefits of overclocking.


4: Incorrect overclocking can damage motherboard, processor, and possibly memory. It may also cause data corruption in hard drive.


5: The maximum clock speed for a processor is unique to that processor. Their have been reports of desktop processors overclocking well above advertised specs for one individual while not doing so good for others.

\\ I do not respond to PM regarding individual tech support. Keep discussions in the forum for the benefit of others //
