    Taking into account that both i5 430m, 520m, 540m all are tdp 35w

    in that case should be posibility overclocking the 430m @ 2.93 or more?

    Mmm could we awesome i5 430@2,93 and gpu 750-775/1100...

    I got a question regarding overclocking: MSI Afterburn has a limitation for memory clock at 1040Mhz, is there any chance to extend that limit?

    I've gotten setfsb to detect the bus speed correctly however setting the new bus speed results in a lock up. But someone has got this working as I've seen i5 430m's running 300Mhz higher (144 bus). I say its possible and a nice free boost.

    The author of setfsb needs the correct ICS chip id, only way to find out is a motherboard photo or when i get around to opening this unit up.

    As far as the GPU: I have clocked 710 Mhz core and 1040 memory stable running furmark for 15 minutes. Temps hit 82-83 degrees and sat between that. Further testing is required to see its 100% stable after say 3 hours of bad company 2.

    MSI afterburner detects the card, however you can't set teh clocks. ATI GPU tool is working just fine.

    My HDMI no audio issue seems to be the 10.5 cat driver. I will have to go with the stock Acer driver for now till i find a fix.

    That is one heck of an improvement in 3dMark you got. Does anyone know if AMD GPU Clock Tool will work with my 5450?

    @hendrickson - Very nice work with this thread. It might be helpful to new users who will be doing a clean install if you would link your sources for the drivers that will be needed after the clean install, like they have done in the 1410/1810 tweaks thread.

    Are you seeing any anomolies (i.e., small black dots, etc?) with the OC'ed speeds you have set on your card? Any freezing? Are you running stability testing between resets? The HD5650 seems to OC quite well.

    I'm probably calling Singapore tonight. I'll let you know what I find out.

    Bronsky:cool:

    @abaddon4180 you should have no problem using the ATI GPU tool on your DM4T. I would be interested to see how well it works. So would prospective Envy owners.:D

    Congratulations Hendrickson for Your lappy!

    Nice thread too!;)

    My RAM is 5.9 too, HDD is ranked 5.6 though.

    HDMI works fine here.

    GTA IV runs fluently with standard clockrates on 1366x768 all HIGH, Max CPU temp 84 C / 87 C, max GPU temp 65 C.

    Screen panel is AUO for me too.
