    It's @Dufus. And he used desktop motherboard and custom water loop. Not apples vs. apples

    As you can see... Some use exotic cooling. And some don't even mention it in the submission.

    A desktop board was never used with the i7-4700MQ or the i7-4600M. Benches first were done with the laptop and stock cooling although was placed in front of an aircon for some results as daytime temps are over 30C most of the year. If in Norway could probably be done even better outside on a cold day. Later an Asrock IMB-180 mini-ITX board was used with temporary water cooling for experimentation. The 6" by 6" board is supplied by a single 12V-19V supply, has 2 SO-DIMM slots, a mobile PCH (QM87), LVDS for a display panel and a plethora of serial ports. The only resemblance to a desktop board would be the single 16x PCIe slot.

    You can still Google some of the laptop only benchmark images of which results were posted in the vs image earlier.

    Now the i7-4980HQ was used with a desktop board (Z97) and watercooled with warm water. With the 47W TDP processor reaching 200W with certain tests it was necessary.


    No, and it's not supposed to be. It's to demonstrate what I have said from the start about the importance of hardware and firmware support. How will TheReceiver compare his own custom cooling?

    Please remove your shoes before reading further.
    The picture is not of his setup but his desktop wallpaper on his laptop. You may now kick yourself.

    Do you remember the dual core mobile i7-4600M running air cooling beat all dual core desktop CPU's using XTU and took global first place for dual cores, even against those running LN2?

    Not an apples to apples either but does demonstrate the hardware/firmware importance mentioned several times now.

    Hope I haven't upset the applecart :/

    Guys you can post what ever you want as the mods dont seem to care if this is Off Topic.

    Ill take my results elsewhere in the forums.

    4980hq is moot as it doesnt post in the Ranger. Im not sure why its being referenced.

    4700mq is moot, as EC is not unlocked and does not support unlocked power limits in this platform. I have yet to see proof of this in the Ranger.

    This thread is for overclocking the 4930mx IN MY RANGER, not overclocking in general, or even seeking advice about settings etc etc because others have already shared.

    All of the methods used in referencial material required platforms that allowed it, or microcode exploits. None of which is desired or even intended for use.
