Hello.

I recently have aquried a Dell Inspiron Mini 1012.

I have looked all over the internet and have found a lot of nothing. I have tried using SetFSB but it seems there is no specific clock generator for the Dell Inspiron Mini 1012. I am getting very discouraged. I was wondering if it is even possible to overclock this model.

Much thanks,
Goomba.

By overclocking, the temperature will higher and it probably cause problems like overheating. The fan won't be able to cope the higher temperature.

Hi, Im probably the last person who should be posting to you question ,my overclocking skills are limited ,but!
why in the world would you want/need to overclock a machine built for reading emails and surfing the net,Dell BIOS usually don't offer much in the way of overclocking features
a little on the Atom oc done at Toms hardware .

There is no point of overclocking it and the it won't increase that much as mentioned in the tom's hardware topic. It's fine how it is and intended for surfing the net.

Oh, dang.

I got it for free, and I have no use for it, so I just wanted to make it a little bit better for like small-scale gaming.

I've seen other netbooks be overclocked and perform quite well. I really don't want a gradual change, a small boost would do fine, but I guess there is just no way for these netbooks. I've seen ways to overclock pretty much every netbook model EXCEPT for Dell Inspiron Mini 1012s.

Thanks for the help though.
