Ignore the 5400rpm spinner will you I have OS X and a data partition on my 500GB 7200 at the moment (don't hate me, I'm just experimenting).

The 720QM is at stock, the 5870m is OC'd from 700/1000 to 840/1100. I have to say I was hoping for a 7.4, but I'll see how much further it can be pushed.

RAM is a mixture of 2x4GB KHX 1600 and just 2x2GB Kingston...standard RAM 1333. Mobo only supports up to 1333 though, and I believe the KHX is CL7 at those speeds...the standard RAM is CL9 though which probably holds it back, idk. I need to get around to putting in the other 2x4GB KHX SODIMMs but I need to take it apart to access the 4th slot...and it's scary

Note: can somebody buy me an SSD? Please?
Those are good numbers for a laptop. I know a lot of people who have worse on a desktop. Sorry about the SSD, I'm a little short at the moment.

New WEI scores, with the i7 720QM OC'd from 1.6-2.8GHz to 1.77-3.1GHz and the 5870m core/memory speeds up from 700/1000MHz to 810/1105MHz. RAM is up to 1477MHz from 1333. Using W7 from a 7200rpm spinner this time.

Seeing as my mobo limits the RAM to 1333MHz (running at stock FSB speeds), there's no way to OC my Kingston HyperX without changing the FSB speed and thus OCing the CPU too right? Because I really want to see how high these babies can get on the WEI.

I don't know what options you have in bios. Some boards have an option of FSB/Dram ratio. You can try to change that if you have it, but be aware it can cause instability.

I have never seen a laptop with all these options in bios, but if they are available you can also increase the FSB and lower the multiplier to bring the CPU back down to near stock speeds, thus raising the ram frequency but not OC the CPU. I'm sure you are aware that doing such things can be hazardous to your hardware.

To be honest you should be very happy with this Laptop, it surpasses most Desktop PC's. You seem to be quite adept at tweaking your component settings, but if you push it a hair too far you could end up with burned out components. Most good overclockers tune their system up and then take it back a few notches for fear of doing harm. Perhaps you are at the level that you would knock it back too anyway as it seems you have raised things up a good bit. IMO be very cautious when stretching the last few notches, you don't want it to be the straw that broke the Camels back...
All the same though, that is a really smart piece of portable computing.

I agree. Laptops are not good candidates for Overclocking. That one doesn't seem to need it either.

I wasn't actually, how comes and what would happen? Surely only OS instability, I could always just go back into BIOS and change it? Not that I'll probably have the options anyway...


As for keeping it down a few notches I have for the CPU from where it starts to BSOD (few PLL lower), need to do some stability testing overnight. The GPU can handle running WEI at 840/1110 but I dropped it down a bit to do the 3DMark11 run. I'll mostly run stock apart from some games which could use a little more oomph (though I haven't tried playing them on this new install yet, I was getting ~2000 before!). Seems like it's pretty much maxing on 2720 now...

And really I'm just an overclocking noob I started two days ago now, had looked into it before but just hadn't.

The default PLL for my laptop (the G73JH) is 139, mine can get up to 164 but I am incredibly jealous of a guy's who can handle up to 191. That CPU, despite being mobile, is pretty damn good at handling being OC'd.

Also as soon as I get a desktop I'm going to have to learn properly, as I can't adjust any of the voltages on my laptop so it's pretty basic stuff. No extra cooling systems needed either. I have to admit though, I am in love with this laptop

If it were mine, I'd be in love with it also. Most laptops are not able to handle the heat OCing creates and that limits them. Actually, that's what limits most desktops. My desktop will overclock more but I can't handle (or don't want to) the heat it causes. Most serious overclockers have pretty elaborite water cooling systems for that reason. I also read on overclockers forums that they record batch numbers for CPUs. Some CPU's of the exact same kind will overclock more than others. I would suggest if you really want to try it, post on the overclockers section of this forum. But, if that were my laptop, I wouldn't want to risk it. It is too good now.

Also, overclocking puts stress on almost all components of the computer and can cause damage. It's a real risk to hardware as well as software.

Most laptops don't have such a great or innovative cooling system for starters the vents are massive:




Secondly it draws air into the cooling system from above, there's a long 'tray' in front of the monitor which the speakers are housed in, but all of that allows airflow, as well as the vents on the underside. It's neat.
