AL i3 running great on my wife’s old discarded EeePC 1001PX (Atom N450)
I would like to overclock to try to speed up a bit as it is with max RAM (2GB)
Will be careful not to overheat but actually wont be using it for much / much at all
I have seen that in windows its possible to go from 1.67 GHz to 2.1
I have no idea about overclocking but have already got completely lost in the jungle of OC forums etc / seen that most seems to be for Windows
There is no option in BIOS
Can anyone give me some simple pointers / specific links on how to do this?
I know its probably not worth it
Is it even possible?
Loving AL - its my main Linux OS now, and installed on a number of laptops
I had a netbook and I think I tried to overclock the onboard video as well as the CPU, you’re not gonna see much pop or any difference in performance. Overclocking the CPU, you have a greater chance of toasting the netbook than anything else.
I used tools off of this site, of course that’s when I had the netbook in Windows:
Thanks. Yup, thats what i gqthered from my recent searches- Netbook not normal for OC, but its just an exercise and i will watch the temp. I use it with charger - Until last week it didnt even have a battery . The idea is just to give a slight tweak for loading pages on qutebrowser.
Thanks also. I got a little 120gb ssd with the battery last week and put it in. Didnt make as much difference as in my other lappys which i guess is because the Eeepc is cpu not io or ram bound?
I installed corectrl which looks great but only offers me to change to a performance frequency scaling:
“CPU: Basic support. It has a control for the frequency scaling governor, a sensor for the package maximum frequency and displays hardware information for each CPU package.”
Not sure if that made any difference.
It took a long time to build
I have the bios update and will try that. Never done that before - do you have a recomendation for a guide please?
