Over clocking is when you cause your computer's CPU to work at a higher than it's normal capacity. It also causes your cpu to heat up beyond it's normal operating temp. It CAN cause the computer to run as though it has a larger cpu in it (this can also be done to a few other items as well), say a 1 GHz overclocked to a 4 ghz (which has been done). But you can also very well fry your CPU (or other components), in which case you have an expensive paperweight. It is NOT something to be tinkered with for those who are inexperienced, and I would not suggest it.

How do I overclock the CPU of a HP ENVY 15-j028tx? I've searched on Google but haven't found any overclocking info... or much info at all about this model really. I don't want to mess with anything until...

Personally I never over clock my cpu it makes it run way to hot and lessons the lifespan greatly if you want more speed in your laptop get more RAM first I bet you will solve your slow pc concerns without PC damage.

drbrightirem.jpgOverclocking a processor means enabling it to operate above the manufacturer's specified frequency. Many internet sites provide instructions for overclocking. Processor manufacturers and many computer experts believe the slight gain in performance (only perceivable on CPU-intensive software) isn't worth the expense or considerable risk.

  • Get whatever tools you need: screwdriver, needle-nose pliers, motherboard manual, cooling hardware, etc.
  • 2 Find out whether your motherboard can be adjusted in the BIOS setup, with jumpers or not at all.
  • 3 Find out clock-speed limitations of the motherboard.
  • 4 Run all Windows and any third-party diagnostic applications you have. Fix all system problems.
  • 5 Make a complete backup of your system, documents and applications you don't have on CD-ROM. Do not overwrite these copies.
  • 6 If you have a BIOS-adjustable motherboard, make changes according to your motherboard manual, and skip to Step 15.
  • 7 Shut down computer.
  • 8 Leave computer plugged in to surge suppressor.
  • 9 Disconnect all peripherals from computer.
  • 10 Remove cover of chassis.
  • 11 Ground yourself to computer with any professional grounding equipment you have. Otherwise, ground yourself by touching a metal part of the chassis.
  • 12 If your motherboard has adjustable jumpers, locate the jumpers that control the CPU speed.
  • 13 Use needle-nose pliers to change jumper settings. Move jumpers to positions indicated in your motherboard manual for the clock speed you want. Check the internet for recommendations.
  • 14 Install a CPU heat sink, heat-sink compound, and a specialty cooling fan, if appropriate and possible.
  • 15 Put system back together, and reboot.
  • 16 If computer does not boot, and CPU still works, try lowering the clock speed. If that doesn't work, restore the original configuration.
  • 17 Check all functions, and run a CPU-intensive program.

    • CPUs have rated and maximum speeds. Exceeding the maximum speed is far more likely to cause problems than more conservative adjustments.

    • Overclocking an Intel processor explicitly voids its warranty. Other manufacturers have similar exclusions. Intel prevents overclocking of some CPUs by disabling higher multiplier settings.

    • Expect a shorter life for an overclocked processor, including the possibility of its immediate failure.

    • Prepare to deal with seemingly unrelated problems that can be caused by overclocking: destruction of other internal components, lost data, system and application crashes, and an inability to boot the system. Such problems can occur randomly or materialize well after you have altered your motherboard

    Over clock processor

    The Dell Laptop overclock is done via the BIOS - accessed during boot.
    Another method to overclock is by using software, (I don't have any to recommend due to not being familiar with which is better / worse / etc).

    Can pentium 4processor replace pentium 3 in ibm t23 ?

    By looking at the supporting operating systems for the laptop the answer is "No" upgrading cpu laptops or even desktops is risky business. I have taken an MSI mobo and overclocked it to run a barton cpu opposed to the anthlon. Although, a 3 and 4 may have the same socket, you have to consider bus and clock speeds. You can review more at IBMT23

    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

    Why does not cpu work on more tera hertze?

    A CPU is specifically designed to work as a certain frequency. Some motherboards allow overclocking to speed up the clock frequency and allow the CPU to operate faster. The faster the CPU operates the more heat it will generate.
    When a CPU overheats, it will shutdown - this is called thermal shutdown and if this is allowed to continue, the CPU will eventually fail.

    Over heating

    No thermal grease or old dry thermal grease and a dust and debris filled heatsink is your most likely cause of this problem. Dell isn't very overclocker is more likely a lack of maintenance in blowing the dust out of the case on a regular basis. Take the case panels off and use dry compressed air to blow the system out and clean it thoroughly. The heatsink needs to be removed and the hold down latch on the processor needs to be removed and the heatsink and processor need to be wiped clean and a new thin layer of thermal grease applied to the processor. Put the system back together and fire it up.

    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.

    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?

    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.

    Cpu speed currently 1.8mhz spec indicates 3000+ msi k8t neo 2 can u set cpu speed faster?

    You do not mention the CPU name, but if the CPU is a Semprom 3000+, then 1.8Ghz is the correct clock speed for the chip.

    The "3000+" is what is called a "performance rating" - It is NOT the chips clock speed in GHz.

    Look here:

    If you want faster, then you would need to overclock.
