Unfortantly with modern computers it really is not a good idea to overclock the system even if you are able to do it. The reason for this is modern computers are already maximized full. Where with your computer from over 5 years ago manucfactures used to underclock CPUs do to manufacturing issues and/or to build a price range into the CPUs eventhrough they were made from the same production run.

If you overclock a modern computer you run a very high risk of burning up the system. Also in your case since you have a notebook computer you are limited by hardware that does not preform as well as a desktop computer would. I myself haave games that will run on my desktop computer but not my notebook.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

How do I control CPU fan speed on an Acer G45T/G43T-AM3?


Some gamer or extreme motherboards have this feature, but I doubt ACER does. Try blowing out dust with canned air. This really works for me. I have an older machine, and I live in dusty Vegas so I know what you mean.

The other solution is to look for a bigger and quieter heatsink / fan.

Is it possible to clock my cpu??


it would depend on your BIOS. I'd check with Acer, but Acer really isnt known for its gaming: They typically build standard entertainment PC's, so youre not likely going to have any overclocking options. Still, pop in the fastest ram you can find, add a beefy video card and maybe load your main OS on an SSD Hard drive and you will have one spiffy rig.

I am wanting to upgrade my processor from an AMD Athlon 64x2 2.0Ghz to an AM2 3.0ghz. I've upgraded the the ram to 3gb and the video card to a 8800 gts 320mb and I can upgrade the power supply to 550w if...


The 8800 GTS is a big card so make sure you have the room to install, It takes the space of two slots. Reviews say it runs hot so provide adequate ventilation. It's minimum power supply requirement is 400w. I don't know what you are planning to do with this card but, if your a gamer, you'll want to have at least 400w. Hope this helps.

Hello im getting extreme overheatting on my acer aspire 5720z im using a cooler pad under my laptop, anyway sometimes it just shutdown. its clean too. how can i set up the fan to run all the time??


Try to clean the heatsink of your laptop to avoid dust. Unfortunately, there is no 3rd party utility to control acer laptops fans. You would have to clock down your cpu/gpu to avoid over heating.

Acer 7520G games problem...


Hey, its overheating, not much you can do about it, try one of those cooling pads. Did a little modification on mine back in the day, I put a cpu cooler from a desktop computer on top of the video card on the laptop, happened to be in a good spot, wont be a good idea for most laptops.

Overclocking


hi friend this is:
What is Overclocking?

Overclocking is a cool way of making your CPU, video card (monitor card), 3D accelerator and some other kinds of hardware run faster and give better performance for free! (Intel's worst nightmare! MWHAHAHAHAHA!!!)
During this tutorial I will teach you how to overclock your CPU, but you can use this information to overclock other kinds of hardware on your PC.
Now, your CPU speed is based on two factors - your BUS(2) speed and your clock speed (mine is 1 second per second... just kidding. I don't mean a standard clock, like one you can tell time out of. Read on and you'll understand).
Example: The BUS speed on older computers (let's take a Pentium I 166MHZ(3) as an example) is about 66MHZ. 166, the CPU speed, divided by 66, the BUS speed, gives you about 2.5, meaning your clock speed is about 2.5.
Simple, huh? BUS speed X clock speed = CPU speed.

Now, what exactly is overclocking and how do I do it?

Materials
  1. The little booklet you were supposed to received together with your CPU.
  2. A screwdriver (better be a Philips screwdriver).
  3. A metal plier with a rubber/plastic handle or a bunch of fingers (better be your fingers... oh, and when I said a bunch of fingers, I've meant at least 5, all of them attached to a living hand (better be yours). Undeads are also welcome).
  4. A calculator / a brain.
A) Open your computer using your trusty screwdriver.
B) Look at the little booklet you have and find the part about the jumpers(4) board and read.
C) Use the plier or the fingers to change the jumpers array so you will receive the clock speed you are interested in. Oh yeah, and try not to step on your CMOS chip(5) or on your Cache chip(6).

Note: newer CPUs are "Clock Locked", meaning you cannot change their clock speed, but you can still change their BUS speed... ;)
Changing the BUS speed is similar to changing the clock speed (read the part on your booklet about the jumpers).

How Dangerous is This Whole Thing?
Well, you CAN fry your modem, but it all depends on you.
If you screw up and step on things, spill coffee over your computer or overclock your CPU too much (see Advanced Tips), don't come back crying to me.
