Has anyone here done any yet?January 15, 2009 at 3:04 pm #179932
I have heard people other forums talking about it, as the MSI Wind has a factory overclock button. I have also heard people saying that the cooling system in the NC10 is very good, I havent seen anyone have a go at risking it. I would think that its possible, but im not really willing to risk melting mine first!January 15, 2009 at 3:12 pm #179929
that’s fair enough man, i can understand why you’d be wary.
i’ve seen people managing to get the atom to run at 2 – 2.2 ghz in other systems.January 15, 2009 at 3:19 pm #179935SukhMember
Wouldn’t it just be similar to overclocking a full size pc? messing around with the FSB and checking and testing and start again with a little bump?January 15, 2009 at 5:54 pm #179933

Yeah it would be pretty much identical – its just accessing those settings which I dont think we can do through the normal Samsung BIOS. The other thing as mentioned is keepinig the processor running cool once its been overclocked. I can easily imagine them to run at 2GHz and maybe slightly faster – but Im just going to sit tight until someone else has a go and does it!January 15, 2009 at 6:30 pm #179931bgalfondMember
I’d be interested to see what kind of performance gains overclocking yields. I am not real sure if cpu is the real bottle neck itself or if it the hdd or memory speed (which is where tweaking the fsb would become interesting to me). Underclocking may be interesting too, though I doubt battery life would improve that much.
I’ve done a good deal of overclocking on desktops I’ve put together, but it has always been bios based, software approaches like clockgen always seemed… i dunno, messy. Be real nice if samsung opened up the bios a bit…January 15, 2009 at 7:36 pm #179934
I doubt they will open up the BIOS, however I agree it would open up a few opportunities. I wouldnt use software overclocking I have heard it can be a little unreliable too. I also have overclocked many desktops, however with the sammy bring so small and potentially fragile I think we would have to be very very careful.January 16, 2009 at 11:24 pm #179930
yeah any overclocking of these will have to be done via PLL interface using an app like setFSB or whatever.
unless someone wants to have a bash at writing their own custom bios…. 😀January 17, 2009 at 1:46 am #179928GhostfuryMember
What about an eeectl version for the NC10? Is is possible?
