    Yikes! I have no idea on that one. Wonder if Nand0 can chime in?

    Congrats on the courage to do that. Tough to be the first one over the bridge.

    Best Wishes, StevenX

    @OverZealot - did you ever get the PLL, TME clock disabled? Best Wishes, StevenX

    Bump to keep this alive. I installed the newest version of setFSB and Abo(from setFSB) asked that I run a diagnosis and some info to him. I sent all the stuff and he had me run some settings back and forth. As stated before the TME is locked and we can't update... I asked if there were any other methods (out of the box thinking) type of stuff and he said they can't support it. So... If we could get the R1 up to 2.0 ghz I think we would be in a good place.

    Anyone have any other updates? Best Wishes, StevenX

    Been busy studying and playing games that don't need the extra cpu speed :D
    Attempts to change clock speeds using similar PLL presets in setFSB fail, so I presume that it's locked.
    I found anecdotal evidence both for and against the ability to change frequency via software... mostly against though.
    The datasheet doesn't describe a TME pin, nor a method for soft-clocking.
    Maybe I'll do an FSLx mod in the future, or try the PCI2 pin. Not today though.

    Fresh info from SetFSB site:
    It can also work in M11x :) - but you must unlock TME (I'm not 100% sure - you might try without TME mod).

    You would have to do a pin mod to unlock the TME. Then you can OC, but that requires cutting and soldering a resister in.

    Why it is so hard? Why there are so many laptops which can be overclocked without such pain in аss? Maybe there is some software way?)

    TME is locked on the M11x PLL. Only way to then get software PLL programming is with a pinmod (see sig). Before doing that, consider Asus UL30VT/80VT owners without such restrictions were able to get their SU4100/SU7300 up to 1.9Ghz. So is the extra 0.17 worth voiding your warranty for? I don't think so.
