    Default How can I overclock my RAM?

    Yes, I know I'm a n00b and yes, I know I've posted in CPU and GPU overclocking, but I want to overclock my whole machine. I'm not sure how to go about clocking my RAM either, so can someone help me? ClockGen doesn't work with my computer, and I don't know if I need a plug-in or whatever, but I seriously need to make my laptop faster.

    Thanks!

    The only ways I can think to make your laptop faster is to upgrade to at least 2 gigabytes of RAM, and a 7200RPM internal hard disk drive. Thats basically all you can really do. Overclocking a laptop is dangerous because of the heat in such a small place.


    Here is the quote for memory for the laptop. It is $57.99/gig. You will see a Windows improvement with the extra memory.

    Extra RAM always seems to make a large differance for me.Mainly after quitting a large program, before i upgraded my RAM i would have to restart because everthing had gone into virtual memory and took ages to load back into RAM. Now it all runs great

    Sadly, my old motherboard only supports up to 1 GB of DDR RAM... I guess I'll just have to stick with what I've got currently.

    The faster hard drive would speed it up. I am presuming it spins at 4200/5400RPM. A 7200RPM hard drive will run quicker the whole laptop will feel faster.

    Hmm... I'm thinking what's in it now is about 5,400 RPM. I'll check some prices on new 7,200s.

    yes but don't you want to improve gaming performance? a new HDD won't do anything to help there, will speed up laoding times a little though.

    True. I've come to the conclusion that I just need a new computer altogether.
