OC mobile i7-920xm or 40xm
#1
I was wondering if anyone out there has a mobile i7-920xm processor (notebook). I doubt it but if you do, was wondering if you overclocked it and tried to find the best settings to oc to.

I was thinking it can probably handle up to 2.5ghz to 2.8ghz in quad mode without overheating with ic diamond.

an estimation is fine if you don't have one. According to the forums I've read, the normal i7-720qm temps with ic diamond doesn't go pass 77c in furmark which is very impressive. Of course, this depends on how well it was pasted. I've heard some people get up to 100c using ic diamond and later reported they had a leak or something but thats something different.

The i7-920xm won't benefit much from overclocking, it's already got high clock speed and it's more than enough to handle the cache size. I realize you want to but it's already 45nm with 55W and since it's a higher binned product (compared to the i7-720qm) you won't have much luck overclocking it because it already is.

To explain you can look at the i5-520 and the i5-540 (a faster clocked 520.) They're the same chip but I can probably overclock a 520 to 540 speeds or close. I could still have a 540 and not be able to clock it higher very much or at all because it's already at the max.

best overclock I seen with the 920xm is 3.06ghz which was quite hot but with a good notebook cooler it was bearable but definetly not something to look at long term + with the price of it not something I would recommend.

thx for this. Yea, I don't plan on going that high. Just wondering since in the future, I want to upgrade sometime in the future.
