Windows 7: CPU overclocking & heat

Hey, service manuals saved my butt more than once, no lie.
There IS a difference between taking apart a Dell Inspiron 1501 and a Dell Inspiron 1525, believe it or not. A big difference.

Such as a 20oz hammer, and a 45oz hammer.
Ball pein or claw pein...

I should probably post something more productive...
Service manuals are good for swatting flies. And only used as per their intended use as a last resort.
Or if the machine is too good to screw up first time.
I'd never take a socket or spanner set to a 2008 BMW or Audi without knowing what to do.
But with my 1991 Honda, I wont feel so guilty if I have left over parts.

My garage is still approaching maximum capacity...

They have their uses.

I am more of the mindset of "If I can't figure it out myself, THEN I will check the manual."

A signatures I've used here was, "when all else fails use the impact solution.. a 5 pound sledgehammer works best"
I know what you mean.. I stopped working on cars because it's too damn frustrating. At least you don't have to worry about knuckbusters or bolt patterns and torque specs when reassembling a laptop.

I have a 1991 Honda. I dont worry about those things either. If it goes, it goes. If it doesnt, do it again.
I'l worked on several of these particular cars, so I've already figured it out from experience.
But with an Audi, no idea. Consult the manual.

As for PC's and Laptops... PC's are all the same. Laptops are all similar.
Its like that toy you used to play with as a kid.

If the component doesnt fit into the slot, then it doesnt go there.

You should already know then, sometimes compatible parts aren't..

I can generally figure it out, but I stick to the manual since it's good practice

If something is broken beyond repair, I love to take it apart and put it back together, to see if I can get it all back with no missing parts . Having a sheet of clean fabric/paper next to you to lay out screws and stuff is very handy.

I check the manual whenever I take apart any laptop I havent worked on before.. if I can get one.. not all manufacturers make them easy to find. Sometimes the chassis will look identical to one of a previous model#, but everything inside has been redesigned. At least HP and Dell freely provide service manuals.. which is strangely convenient because most of the laptops I work on are HPs and Dells, with Toshiba coming in as a distant 3rd.. Most of the other brands either rarely get sold, rarely have problems or don't last long enough for the warranty to expire
