    Re: C2D Overclocking Guide for Beginners

    This looks quite helpful, but i have a question. Within a couple of months, I'm getting a new notebook computer, a Dell Inspiron 1720 with an Intel Core 2 Duo T7300 (2.0GHz/800Mhz FSB/4MB cache). Can laptops be (safely) overclocked, and if so how much could this processor be OC'd? I'm really not wanting a massive boost if it'll fry my system, but a little extra get-up-and-go would be nice.

    Also, slightly off topic, but still pertaining to OCing, this system will have a 256MB NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT graphis card and 2GB Shared Dual Channel DDR2 at 667MHz. Can either of these (especially the vid ard) be overclocked as well?

    I'm new to overclocking (though not to computers), so any info. would be greatly appriciated. =)

    Edit: I should mention I'll be using a dual boot of Windows XP (haven't decided which version; I have both), and Windows Vista Home Premium.

    Re: C2D Overclocking Guide for Beginners

    I have an inspiron 6400, and I have been unable to overclock it at all using clockgen and the like.

    I suppose it depends on how well the onboard cooling works, but to be honest, I wouldnt bother, because if you do end up frying something, it will be costly to get it fixed, and dell will probably dump your warranty (You wont often see me saying this, but with laptops, its not worth it, because your battery life would drop dramatically, and if you keep it plugged into the mains all the time, you might as well buy a desktop PC).

    I'm not sure about the graphics, mine only has the intel 945 onboard stuff.

    You will probably get a better response and more replies if you make a thread about it in General Hardware

    Things are different on your motherboard to the one that this guide was written for. Most of the settings and terminology are different as well, as is the way the board works, so to make things a bit easier for yourself, you would be better following this guide, as it is for your board

    Yeah, I figured it wasn't a viable option, though as cool as Core 2 Duo's seem to run I thought it might still be workable and safe. Ah well, it never hurts to ask; I'll likely just leave it alone. However, when I build my next desktop, I'll definately keep this article in mind. Thanks for your help!

    Re: C2D Overclocking Guide for Beginners

    Id just like to say thanks for such a simple (and effective) OC guide for us n00bs.

    I have followed (loosely) the steps here and succeeded in my 1st attempt to clock my e6400 (2.13g) to 3.04g with perfect stability. (Mind you i do have water cooling and pc2-8500 RAM)

    Thanks dude - you really deserve a medal for this one!!!

    If anyone would be kind enough to translate the guide into another language, that would be great, and I will give you full credit for it.

    Please PM me and let me know what you can do

    Re: C2D Overclocking Guide for Beginners

    Can anybody help?

    I'm just looking at overclocking my memory to PC2-6400 from PC2-5300 for now until I have the time to look into overclocking properly, so will just adjusting the Memory Divider be suffice as per the guide to increase the memory speed only?

    I can't recall where I read that it is in the best interests to keep the ratio 1:1, is this true or does it not matter?
    Will adjusting the memory to DDR2-800 affect the performance of the system in a 'negative' way?

    All comments appreciated, thanks!

    Re: C2D Overclocking Guide for Beginners

    difficult to say without knowing more on your memory, manufacturer, rated timings & voltages.

    some memory oces easier than oters, you may need to up the voltage slacken timings etc.,
    1:1 isn't always necessary , but again it depends on your rig, which again we don't know.

    Will adjusting the memory to DDR2-800 affect the performance of the system in a 'negative' way?
    yes it may become more unstable, it's best to test an oc to ensure stability , if you want to run it 24/7

    luck
