Overclock my AMD Quad Core FX-8800P?

Jump to solution

So I just got this brand spanking new laptop and i want to use all of the available speed on it.  it can go up to 3.4 GHz but it is currently throttled down to 2.10 GHz.

I tried to get OverDrive but it says it can't find it or it doesen't support it.

Any help?

You can't overclock laptops. The 3.4ghz is the Turbo Boost speed which kicks in under lightly threaded workloads when there is thermal headroom.
