Question about Acer Aspire 5315 Notebook

1 Answer

Upgrading the CPU

What would happen if I replaced a 550MHZ processor with a 800MHz, or an even higher processor? Would it always overclock or would it be pretty safe? Does it matter if its dual-core or single-core to keep it from OC'ing?

    I was also wondering how i can find out which CPU's are compatable with my Acer 5315, as far as dual-core and how high I can bring the FSB to.

Overclocking is adjusting the speed of which a cpu works at (processor = cpu) replacing a cpu is not overclocking and wont cause any problems aslong as the cpu is ment for the motherboard and is supported. depending on the motherboard you may not be able to place in a 800MHZ cpu, but if you find one that fits and works on your model sure go ahead, it wont cause any problems, other than possibly overheating if the cooling is designed for a slower processor.

System reguirements to inrease ram memory


Ram Memory typically operates at half of the frequency rate, ('Speed'), that the Processor's -> FSB does.

Your motherboard supports Processors that have either a 400MegaHertz Front Side Bus, (400MHz FSB), or 533MHz FSB, or 800MHz FSB.

(Northwood Core for 400MHz FSB. The rest is in the other solution I provided)

Processor has a 400MHz FSB?
You can use DDR Sdram ram memory that is 266MHz.
(PC2100)

Processor has a 533MHz FSB?
You can use DDR Sdram ram memory that is either 266MHz, Or 333MHz.
(PC2100 and PC2700 respectively)

Processor has an 800MHz FSB?
You can use DDR Sdram that is either 266MHz, or 333Mhz, or 400Mhz.
(PC2100, PC2700, and PC3200, respectively)

NOTE*
When using a processor that has an 800MHz FSB, and using PC2700, (DDR at 333MHz), the PC2700 ram memory will run at ->
320MHz.

JEDEC has set the voltage requirements for DDR Sdram at 2.5 Volts.
'Performance' ram memory that is DDR Sdram may use higher voltages.
Not recommended unless you know how to overclock.

Although the motherboard, and the ram memory module may have SPD, it doesn't always work,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serial_presence_detect

A lot of times you are faced with going into BIOS Setup, and changing the ram memory voltage, IF BIOS Setup has this feature.
This is why I say overclocking experience helps tremendously.

You want Low Density, Unbuffered, Non-ECC, and a CL of 2.5 for PC2700, and a CL of 3.0, (3) for PC3200.

[Why would anyone want to run PC2100> Lol! ]

M115 s1061 overclock


Overclock can be done by setting fsb higher by percentage to speed up cpu frequency by percentage. But some cpu can not be overclocked and may overheat and shut down. And some drams can not be changed to higher fsb.

Hi there, your first going to need better cooling for your cpu like a aftermarket cooler and then go into the bios and raise the cpu multiplier and cpu voltage bit by bit

How to overclock Intel Pentium Dual Core E2140 1.6 GHz processor


The following link will tell you the very simple way to overclock this processor. Half way down the page you will find the header "OVERCLOCKING"

http://www.value-reviews.com/index.php?page=pentium-dual-core-e2140

"Since the architecture was designed for the 1066 MHz FSB, overclocking is as trivial as setting the FSB to 1066 MHz (266 MHz quad pumped).
...you instantly get a 2132 MHz CPU with little increase in temperature."

Overclocking


Overclocking is set from the BIOS configuration. Not all BIOS allows overclocking, it may need a BIOS upgrade.
Check the ASUS WEB site for your model motherboard.
Overclocking the CPU (ie running at a higher clock speed) and increasing Frontside bus speed will give better performance BUT there is a downside too, if you overclock too high you could overheat the CPU and it could fail.

Overclock


I do not condone overclocking!

You can try upgrading your bios to the latest version. It may let you change the CPU settings.

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Fi [...] &strOSs=38

Intel boards are usually "locked" (BIOS), and are difficult if not impossible to overclock.

I DO NOT CONDONE OVERCLOCKING. IT CAN RUIN,TRASH, BREAK FOREVER, MAKE CEASE TO FUNCTION, if something goes wrong, not yelling at you just want to make sure you know what you are trying toget into.
But...They do sell boards designed for that purpose, I think you can get the board you have w/CPU for under $100. Look for a different board if you are serious about it.

2.4GHz 533MHz FSB to 2.4Ghz 800MHz FSB


Yes, you can put any Pentium 4 or Celeronsocket 478 processor in there, including those with an 800MHz FSB onthe processor. Don't waste your time with only a faster FSB unless youjust happen to have one laying around, the performance won't improvethat much. This one is $50 from Newegg.

Upgrading the components is not overclocking. Overclocking is when youforce the components to run faster than they are rated for. Yourmotherboard is set up to allow this, through the BIOS. Severaloverclocking features areintegrated into the BIOS, including the ability to adjust the FSBfrequency, and the Vcore, DDR, and AGP voltages.

If you choose to overclock, be prepared to make frequent changes toachieve best performance vs. stability. I would suggest upgrading yourcooling to the best you can afford as well. Your PC may lock up orrefuse to boot for no apparent reason if you overclock. Be preparedfor that and know what to do about it before you start youroverclocking career.

How to overclock a pentume 4 processor


Increasing of FSB (processor clock) from 10% up to 15%.
from 1700Mhz you can get 1850 Mhz.
from 2400 Mhz you can get 2640 Mhz
from 3000 Mhz you can get 3300 Mhz
but not all mater board allow this do.

OVERCLOCKING


The 800 MHz seems to be your system bus speed and not the CPU speed. They a related but no quite the same. Overclocking is usually defined as forcing something to operate at a higher speed than it was designed to. If you changed the 800 MHz to 1.6 GHz in your BIOS then yes it could be considered overclocking.

One thing I would like to mention is that when changing clock speeds in your BIOS, do it in small steps, if done in large steps it can cause system instability.

Compatible processor


Yes, if you overclock you computer, I believe if you enter your bios of the motherboard, asus already has a pre overclock options. That is if your using a p4 2.8 ghz processor. You can not put a 3ghz processor and overclock it to a higher fsb, your motherboard will literally smoke up but, most motherboards probably can easily detect a non compatible CPU.
