Uping the clock speed on AMD laptop chips

by Megaherz / August 19, 2009 3:41 PM PDT

I want to now if there is a program out there that is able to higher the speed of the AMD Athlon 64 X2 Ql-64 chip. I know there is something out there for intel chips but I don't know of anything that will work on AMD. Does anyone know of anything i can do.

Thank you, Megaherz

higher the speed of AMD

Do you need higher the speed of the AMD Athlon 64, for newbies, you can use AMD overdrive, it is free tool from AMD, it can maximize the capability, flexibility, and adjustability of the AMD chipset products.

What are some of the precautions i need to take when using something like this and how far is it safe to take the cpu before i have to stop.

if you are talking about overclocking you will need to have good cooling because you don't want it to get too hot as it may frie the chip because if you overclock it will make it run hotter. so be careful when overclocking

also when your overclocking you may need to change the voltage of the cpu in order to get it stable

and look on the amd website and look for that cpu and it will tell you the max supported temp it can handle.

the software that your on about is called AMD OVERDRIVE but is for 7 series chip sets only.

if you cant find the software then maybe the bios on your machine has those features in it.

also overclocking can also shorten the life span of the cpu as-well
