    Default Dell t9300 overclock

    I am getting an XPS M1730 with Vista premium in a week and I was wondering if it can be oc'd. If it can be done I would very much like to know how to do it. I posted in the XPS forum and got nothing so if this is still the wrong place for this thread please let me know.

    Why would you want to? I imagine that you bought that thing for gaming, and I can't think of a single game that would be limited by a CPU that is already that fast, especially when you're getting the 8700M GT card, which will be the bottleneck. Hell, with 8800GTX SLI you'd still notice that the GPU is the bottleneck most likely...

    The only Dell laptop that I know of that allows for OCing the CPU is a 17'' XPS ... I'm thinking 1710. It is one of the features that Dell advertises on the laptop


    Past Thinkpad T60, Inspiron 1420, XPS M1330, Presario V2010us
    Present Inspiron 1520, Aspire One D150

    Yeah I got it for gaming and school work. I wish I had pockets deep enough for the 8800 but a 1000 dollars it's a bit out of reach. Does nvidia sell the 8800 seperatly or through dell only? The reason I wanted to overclock was to see how hard I could push the system.

    The 1730 is a 17 inch but i have no clue about the 1710. Dell says you can overclock the 1730 if you shell out 625 more dollars for the Core 2 Duo Extreme X9000 but thats a little too much for me lol. I have read that you can overclock the T9300 but nothing Dell specific.

    The 1730 is not overclockable. The XPS 1710 was. Actually Dell made a huge lie about their 1710. When they sold it, they claimed that to be able to overclock, you needed to buy the T7600G. Their is no such thing as a T7600G, only a T7600. Instead that extra money you paid, gave you a Bios which allowed for overclocking of a standard T7600 processor. My friend has a 1710 with a "T7600G", and he can only overclock it from 2.33 to 2.66Ghz, before it becomes really unstable. We opened his system up after he got it and the cpu said T7600, so my friend was really pissed and sent a complaint to Dell which was never answered

    Anyways, the X9000 may have an unlocked multiplier, but the 1730 bios does not allow for overclocking. The PLL for the 1730 is not supported by clockgen, cpucool, or any of the overclocking software, so their really is no point in buying the overpriced X9000, since the only laptops which can actually overclock it are the ASUS and MSI ones (they have unlocked Bios on some higher end models).

    In your other thread, you seemed to be concerned with battery life, well if you want to overclock, you are defeating the purpose of wanting more battery life.

    For maximum performance and power efficiency, go with the T9300 or T9500 processors by Intel.

    The only way you could be able to overclock, is to have a professional like BIOSMAN to write coding for your Bios, to allow for overclocking, but that is not cheap.

    I don't Think the T9300 is able to overclock.

    The T9300 as any other mobile processor is a good overclocker, but I don't know if the Dell 1730 motherboard allows the overclocking.

    Franckly, if you want to overclock you should have gone for a desktop where the colling system can be upgraded to handled the extra heat generated from the overclock.

    e.g. the old Celeron M360 @ 1.4 ghz have been overclocked past 2.4ghz with only air coolling system on a desktop.

    It's really fascinating how some of us do all they can to cool down their laptops (AS5, RMclock, Cupper modding...) and others are keen on getting their laptop hotter through overclocking

    How is the T9400? Performance wise and OC'able?
