Alienware M17x R4 Overclocking - HELP!
Jul 27, 2012, 9:24 AM
I really need help to overclock my Alienware M17x R4's CPU.
I use the Intel Turbo Boost Technology, but I want to overclock without that.
Everything on my laptop is extremely high, except from the @ 2.6GHz.
So if any of you could help me I would appreciate that. Thanks!

You do know that turbo boost isn't on all the time, only when doing things where the CPU needs a more speed.
Overclocking a laptop is a bad idea anyway, on most laptops you can't anyway.
