I'm scoring a new Dell Inspiron 9300, Pentium M 770, 1 gig 533mhz DDR2 Ram, 6800 Go, 100 Gig Ultra ATA. Has anyone had any experiance with these? what are they like? and how easy are they to over clock?
Seeing as I'm bored at work (again) I'll shed a bit more light on it for ya....
1)Overclocking produces more heat - your Laptop is designed around a pretty specific requirement in this area, so it's cooling might prove insufficient if you overclock it.
2)Overclocking frequently needs a better HSF. It's a laptop - A laptop with a XP-120 would stop being quite so portable, yes?
3)Laptop Motherboards/BIOSes are not geared towards overclocking. You'd have little (if any) control over anything frequency/voltage wise if you were to try.
4) It's designed to underclock itself all the time, so fiddling around with its stock speeds might make this perform unpredictably.
5) Battery life would suffer horribly. Leaving it constantly plugged in would get around that, but that's not always good for the battery, and why buy a laptop if you always have it plugged in?
6) If operating laptop <i>on</i> your lap, overclocking will damage your sperm count more than running it at stock or lower speeds would do. :wink:
7) The RAM you get with it probably isn't geared for that sort of application.
Aside from that lot, there's nothing in your way! go for it... :tongue:
