    Does anyone know what the most powerful CPUs are that I can use in my 1762? I'm now using a 970m and a 220w PSU?

    You can't change the mobo, so you are stuck with a 3920XM or 3940XM, or a unlocked engineering sample 3720QM etc.

    I have a 3720qm already. Didn't think the 39s could be used as they are a higher power consumption?

    I take it the next down from the 39s is the 3840qm?

    Can still be used, you will be power throttling unless you get a larger PSU. Yes 3840qm.

    I already have a 220w PSU, would I not need a modded bios to allow the extra power?

    How would I go about unlocking my current 3720qm?

    Getting a unlocked bios will help a lot! Loads of tweaks you can do, I think there are a few online for the 1762, I might even find mine. Check this, we had a talk before ;) http://forum.notebookreview.com/thr...-680m-i7-laptop-can-it-be-overclocked.700659/

    You can't unlock your CPU, only engineering samples are unlocked. You will need to get a better CPU if you'd like better clocks or overclocks :)

    IIRC my PSU was also a 220W and it should do just fine.

    Oh yeah so we did, wow that was a long time ago lol. Shall I just overclock my 3720 through xtu then seeing as a 3949xm is £200 and looking at Bench's I don't gain a massive amount over the 3720?

    Are you looking at overclocking benches? Remember there is also the 3920XM.

    You can try boosting the 3720QM as much as you can, try using Throttlestop.

    no just standard clocks, can you overclock them that high then before thermal throttling?

    to be fair i wouldnt know where to start with overclock settings, i had an extreme CPU in the past and i literally just chose the overclock speed in bios and job done lol.

    I just ran a bench on my cpu through xpu and it was highs of 90c+ and thermal throttling like crazy, just re applied my mx4 paste after 5 years and its now hitting highs of 71c with no throttling. glad i did that lol.
