Windows 7: Overlock Core i3 Lenovo Desktop

22 Mar 2011   #1

Overlock Core i3 Lenovo Desktop

Lenovo IdeaCentre B510 w/ Core i3 550

I'd like to overclock my desktop (above), the CPU and if possible, the dedicated ATI graphics card (Radeon 5450)

Can someone help me in this?

Not going to happen. Almost positive that Lenovo is like any of the other computer manufacturers (Dell, HP, etc) in that they remove/hide any and all options in the bios that would allow for overclocking.

Another thing to consider is that you don't really have a desktop,

Lenovo - Desktops - IdeaCentre B510 23" All-in-One PCs

essentially it is nothing more than a laptop built into a monitor, and have all the same problems with cooling (if not worse) as a laptop would if overclocked.
