I strongly suggest you do not overclock it because laptop does not the best ability to cool down CPUs compared to a desktop.

You know, I'm used to OC my GPU from 400MHZ to 620MHZ without any problems, but the problem is no the GPU, wich is acceptable, but the CPU... I am entirely responsable of any damage caused to my laptop.

You overclock and it dies, your warranty is void and so is replacement. I would strong advice against overclocking a netbook or any computer for that matter.

Why do you need to overclock?

Overclocking on a netbook has been done before successfully but the risk can be fatal. Even if you do overclock it, there won't be a big difference in speed.

Why do you need to overclock?


You know, I am a great gamer and I can play CoD: MW2 High settings with an average of 30FPS. Any FPS runs pretty fine on it, but when I try to play Assassin's creed Brotherhood or Battlefield: Bad Company 2, my GPU is running okay but I miss some CPU power (1.7GHZ sucks for games xD).

This is the reason I want to OC my CPU.

Then I would have recommended that you not get a netbook as they come with non-gaming hardware. The amount of heat you would produce would cause issues, and youd wasted your money. Netbooks and computers with non-ati or nvidia chipsets are not meant to be gamers. They are meant for casual use like email, web, youtube, and office type work.

Here's a video my friend made with my netbook:

My ATI HD 4225 is not that bad ;) If you put the Graphics to medium, you get an average of 40FPS... I think Andy got like 20FPS in his video... If we forget the Alienware M11x, do you ever saw a netbook running MW2?

Anyway, I already have a brand new Dell Studio 9100 gaming desktop, but I like to play on the road so... Do you have an alternative solution for the Overclock?

Thank you for your persistence, I like it!

My solution is you should have got something more powerful if you wanted to game on the road.

Nope unless you have the money to shell out for another netbook.

All of the above and http://www.overclockers.com/ .

Netbooks are not made to do much more than minimal system functions, as I understand it.
