How would I overclock an ASUS K53TA-BBR6?

August 27, 2011 at 09:04:05
Specs: Windows 7 home premium 64-bit, AMD A6/4gb ram
The laptop comes with a 1.4GHz AMD A6 APU. I understand that I have to enter the BIOS and change the multiplier for the FSB but I'm unsure of voltage changes and/or other issues I may encounter.

Laptops do not overclock well, even when it is possible. They lack everything necessary for safe and effective overclocking. Overclocking means more heat and many laptops run hot even at stock speeds. The manufacturers are well aware of this and usually do not include in the BIOS the settings that are necessary.

It is best to confine overclocking to home-built desktops where you can control the specifications and quality of the components used.

You don't need to overclock. Your CPU has a feature called TurboCore which will overclock the CPU up to 2.3GHz whenever it's needed (and the CPU is cool enough).

Socket 939 | Dual-core Opteron 185 @ 3.2GHz | 4GB | 1.0TB | Win7 x64
GeForce GTX 460 1GB | X-Fi Ti Pro | A8N32-SLI Deluxe | Antec P182

Download a tool called K10Stat. It is a program that allows you to change the voltages and clock speeds for each power state for any AMD processor. Using this you can overclock the K53TA to ~2.0 to 2.3GHz non-boosted, ~2.6-3.0GHz boosted at similar temperatures to stock voltage (assuming you've undervolted too). There is a tutorial on youtube using a computer with the same CPU, the AMD A6-3400M.

Software overclocking, especially on stock systems is not recommended. Results are rarely satisfactory and factory systems do not come with the quality components that will support overclocking without failing.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
