hey all, i have been browsing and searching on the forum for awhile now, and have had my i600m for about 2 months. i have the 1.8ghz pentium M Dothan 745 chip, with the 400mhz fsb, and i just ordered AS5. it also has ati mobility radeon 9000 64mb graphics. ( i know it sucks, i just want to squeeze out as much performance as possible) i have been playing hl2 and beat it on this system, and it ran pretty smooth, it would just occasionally start to get choppy i guess from the gpu overheating, so i got the I8kfangui utility and would set the fan on high and it would usually be fine. after reading around here a bit more i tested my system with 3dmark03 (i was unable to run 05 because of pixel shader 2.0 being required, i only have 1.4) and initially scored ~330. needless to say i was very dissapointed, found the omega drivers for the ati moblity radeon, and using centrino hardware control undervolted the processor and overclocked the gpu to 270/235(default is 220/200), and scored ~1250. i was very pleased with this improvement, but now i want more. i intend to pin mod, apply the as5 to the cpu and gpu, and further overclock the gpu if possible. is this a good idea? if it is unstable at 2.4, i figure i will lower the max multiplier. will the 600m chassis be able to cope well with the additional heat? oh and i have also run super_pi at 1M and it completed the calculations in 44 seconds. we will see how she does if all goes well. hope this works, thanks in advance for any input/thoughts/suggestions.
