    Default How to overclock dv6t-6190us cpu

    I am really upset that a few months ago when I purchased this computer, the fastest chip was the 2630qm at a measly 2 ghz turbos to 2.6ghz. Now they have it offered with cpus that are at 2.3ghz turboing to 3.3 ghz, for the same price. I build desktops and always overclock my cpus anyways. But how do I overclock this laptop? There is nothing in the bios? Is there a program like asus ai suite or some other overclocking program I can use to get it up in speed a little?

    You COULD have opted for the 2720qm at the time you bought the 2630... basically equal to the 2670 (@ +$150 of course, but cheaper than your alternatives NOW). As far as overclocking, you can't. You may be able to replace your CPU (at a cost), but don't expect your 2630 to have ANY resale value. Just live with it and sell the entire laptop in a couple of years and buy an Ivy Bridge. Your laptop WILL have resale value, unless you beat it up.

    Pick up the new i7-2860QM with a fat 8MB cache, high 2.5GHz clock speed, and the other features/extentions that go with it, which the i7-2630QM does not have.

    I would not say your i7-2630QM has not value. There are tons of i3 and i5 based HP DV6-6XXX out there that will take the CPU, therefore being a massive upgrade for those people. I was even looking for your CPU when I brought an HP with i3 just recently, before I took it back and changed it for the quad.

    Go hard and get the i7-2860QM and install it into your laptop.

    T2050, since you have both, is the 2860QM noticeably faster
    than the 2630QM for everyday windows mulitasking, gaming,
    etc. Or is there no reason to upgrade? Is the 2630QM faster
    than then the i5 even though the i5 has a higher clock speed?

    imho if u want significantly faster everyday usage, better change the hdd to ssd rather than upgrade the cpu.

    Yeah I can notice difference for sure between the two.

    There is a reason why I prefer the 2630QM in the DV6, that is due to the clock speed being the lowest of all quads, therefore less heat for the size of the notebook platform, most of the time when under load I will run the CPU without turbo.

    I can turbo all day long with the i7-2830QM on all four cores in the alienware, running higher than stock clocks. The DV6 will not handle that.

    But... You will still be able to run the biggest quad in the DV6, and it will run at its full speed if under heavy load (likely better without turbo), and it will still turbo when just running off and on loads. Just remember 33% more increase in L3 cache on the higher end quads, on die cache is a wonderful thing.

    i5 will not even come close (even though it is a great processor), 4 real cores is the way to go these days and so forwards.

    Are you SURE that the i7s are compatible with the i3/i5 support chipsets??? I am NOT, but would like to be proven wrong
    Besides, I would think you would need a replacement CPU at the same TDP range as what you are replacing (35W vs. 45W), even though I AM pretty sure the sockets are all the same. I think the only chance of CPU upgrade is within the class of notebook, for it was originally designed; i.e., the 2630qm-2860qm are all 45W TDP... and THIS is assuming the BIOS doesn't complain!
    details... details...

    THIS makes the most sense (and has the highest probability of least frustration).

    Thanks, I may get an SSD eventually. Also, my computer runs at 92 C gaming or high cpu testing at 2.6ghz, so the 2860QM go to 95 C or more and
    just throttle anyways, so why does HP sell it in the dvt6 now?? In gaming where the 6770m is not the limiting factor, an i5 at 3 ghz would be faster and cooler than an i7 at 2 ghz (except for a few games that actually use all 4 cores). Any thoughts.

    Not everyone uses apps that cause the GPU to be the bottleneck. For example, mathematical calculations being run would require a faster CPU than GPU
