    Are Dell Inspiron laptops overclockable

    Hi guys thinking of switching my desktop for a laptop, gonna be on the road for a while so it makes sense. Been looking at dell laptops and wanted to know if they can be overclocked or not, theres not a lot of information going on it so if anyone can give me some insight that'd be cool

    cat version performance review

    title says it all, great article that compares the performance of various cat from 3.5-4.5 and apparently they're planning to add in some more of the earlier drivers as well. check it out if your a benchmark junkie. http://www.absoluteinsight.net/index.php?page=1&id=16

    333 FSB to 400 FSB worth it?

    do what the others said and just overclock it, save a load of money and get the same if not better performance

    X300 and X600

    be interesting to see what sort of performance these cards have to something like a 9800pro, thats if they are actually real and are ever released

    It definately doesn't raise temps that much, no way near that much with decent airflow through the case

    Yellowish Checerboard Problem

    no worries mate, you might wanna check the card in another computer first just incase but i'd say your problem does warrent an RMA, best to check first though just incase.

    Please dont flame me.

    lol, can't say i've ever left my coffee running at night and then been pissed that's it's making to much noise to let me sleep. just backing up what others have said. get the quietist fan you can (which will be quieter than the HD and PSU), cut ou the grills in the case, use some acoustic...

    current scores in sig cheers for pointing out the official thread cornelious0_0, beat me to it. and i'm kinda working on taking it over from blackhex so that it will get updated but i'm not gonna say anymore till it actually happens.

    Yellowish Checerboard Problem

    sounds like your getting pixel artifacts to me which are a result of the core overheating. I'f youv got any artic silver you could try appling that to the heatsink after removing the thermal pad that ati uses which can somtimes go hard and cause the problems your having.

    I finished the 9800XT GPU voltmod but..........

    I finished the 9800XT GPU voltmod but..........

    like i said, just waiting for someone to say it, i can fully understand why corn's trying to rma it as well, i know i would if i thought i had a chance

    I finished the 9800XT GPU voltmod but..........

    really feeling for you corn, on a serious note i hope that this doesn't put you off voltmodding for good. I've had a couple of scares when voltmodding but i keep coming back to it. and good luck with the RMA as well dude (just waitin for someone to say it's unethical)

    I finished the 9800XT GPU voltmod but..........

    corneious there are ways of telling which way to wind the pot without removing it but i'm guessing (could be wrong) that this is your first voltmod so i'd advise to check it the safeist way which is to unsolder one of the legs of the pot and then check the resistance with in turned fully...

    Dumpster Diving!

    thought i'd join in on the longest thread i've found so far. about two months ago i posted a leaflet in all the houses in my village asking people if they had any old electrical equipement they didn't want anymore and were gonna throw out and i literally got sack loads of stuff, heres what i...

    show off your vid card!!

    i can tell you know for sure that they are, with anything over stock cooling the 98xx cards get voltage starved artifacts before they get heat artifacts, i know your reluctant to voltmod what is a very expensive piece of hardware but if you do it will bring definate benifits in terms of artifact...

    second stage of my first watercooling project ... THE WINDTUNNEL!!

    f**king clip still isn't here two weeks later, really not impressed with the service wetandchilly chips are offering, they've had my money but no sign of my clip at all, not even an email to confirm the order. gonna have to chase them up me thinks. and a bump

    show off your vid card!!

    i'm definaltey with you on this one corn, yeah we've all heard of the silly performance that the nvidia card will offer but IMO that means absolutely shit. I remember how convinced i was that all the pre launch hype on the 5800 ultra meant in was gonna piss on the 9700 but it never did. until...

    second stage of my first watercooling project ... THE WINDTUNNEL!!

    yeah i know and i've thought about this, might have to do it as an iterim thing till i can get a bit of cash for a water block. all my other fans in my case i can run at either 12/7/5v by flicking switches. i don't really wanna sacrafice the overclockability though.

    Best AMD XP Board

    yeah there have been a few dfi's like that, tempted me into getting one till i heard how unstable it was. i think it was around 260, i know there are several people at amdforums running 250 day in day out, i'm aiming to get that high as well just gonna take a little bit of tweaking i think.

    second stage of my first watercooling project ... THE WINDTUNNEL!!

    I got a bit lazy after taking the picture and just used some tank tape to seal it up, it's all fairly sturdy without the tape and i thought seeing as noone is gonna be seeing it after the sidepanel is on what does it matter, means it'll be a bit easier to take it apart as well if i need to...

    Development Thread for ATI overclocking tool - v0.0.19 out

    300 seconds is a bit low, if youv got the time to let it run most people let it go for an hour before they consider it artifact free.

    second stage of my first watercooling project ... THE WINDTUNNEL!!

    nw mate, didn't take it as being rude. i think i've tried that before, just tried again now and all it does is change the small print at the top of a post not the name of a thread so i wouldn't really of had the desired effect. thanks for the advise anyway

    atitool on 9800xt

    so long as its not artifacting it should be fine, my core clocks to 450 on air and i'm using a softmodded 9800se so i think your fine. 2d profile is what the clocks are set to when doing 2d stuff, theres no point overclocking in this cuz you don't gain any performance so set this profile to...

    second stage of my first watercooling project ... THE WINDTUNNEL!!

    fair point, i did think about it but i don't know how you can change the name of a thread cuz what i've done is the second step if you know what i mean. it's not like i'm spamming or anything i'm just restarting the interest in my work. any mods reading and you don't want me to do this...

    Best AMD XP Board

    if you want one that can really oc then get the soltek 75frn2 - RL it's got the highest stable fsb in a ranking thing over at XS and i've had nothing but good results with it. very underated board IMO
