    FYI, for those interested in these type of things :D the clock generator in the M11x is a ICS9LPRS387BKLF.

    The reason I know this is that when my M11x arrived the right speaker didn't work. After a little surgery the speaker was repaired. While I was in there I took a few pics and found the clock gen. I took a quick swipe with SetFSB, but it doesn't have support for that particular chip. I guess if someone is motivated enough they could give it a try or work with the creator of the software to implement support.

    That's great Duffy, thank you for going to that trouble. It's unfortunate that SetFSB doesn't support that particular PLL. I also notice after a quick Google that the clock generator is the same in the M11x as the Dell Mini 10v. I know some of the Mini guys like OC'ing their netbooks so I'll have a look through the Dell Mini forums tomorrow. I may find some helpful information there.

    Unfortunately the creator of SetFSB, Abo, No longer supports the product and will not update it. :eek:

    +1 for finding it. Any chance you got a pic?

    I received a response from CPUCool in relation to addding support for the M11x's PLL:
    I have e-mailed IDT and hope to hear from them soon. I'll keep the thread updated with my endeavours.

    No problem DR650SE. Thanks for having a look around, there are a lot of datasheets for different clock generators on the IDT website but not for this one. I just hope they're prepared to give it to me!

    Yeah I did some digging for info when I first opened my machine last week. Strange how you can't really find a data sheet for the device. That is so weird. Who makes something like that and doesn't publish any data about it?

    Here you go. I also included a picture of the inside of the right speaker. The silver disk is the permanent magnet which in my case had come loose and was rattling inside the enclosure. I had to crack open the sealed speaker, reglue the magnet, and glue the case shut. Works fine. No telling how much money I saved Dell. :D

    Is the SetFSB source code available? I'm sure there's plenty of saavy programmers even here at NBR that might be able to incorporate the proper parameters?

    I think it is but according to SetFSB's webpage, the code is entirely in Japanese! I also decided to e-mail Abo about it just to see what information he could offer on the subject, and it doesn't look good:
    I will wait and see what IDT say and send it on to CPUCool, but in lieu of the above information, it might be all in vain. :(
