Dell G7 7590 CPU Overclock?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I recently got a Dell G7 17 (7590). Here’s the link to all of its details: https://www.dell.com/en-au/shop/dell-laptops/dell-g7-17-gaming-laptop/spd/g-series-17-7790-laptop/gn77d595au

However I was wondering. Although it’s a H series chip. Would there be some way of overclocking it (not undervolting) that doesn’t involve boosting the base clock? I’d rather not have to deal with the unnecessary whirl of fans and temperatures of a higher clock speed when it’s not needed. Although I know it’s obviously not built for it being locked and this is somewhat dangerous if still like to if possible keep this as safe as possible. So no dangerous custom BIOS if avoidable

undervolt it, you can't overclock the CPU, moreover the model itself doesn't have good cooling

It is u cant oc most Laptop chips cause they already run at the max that the cooling of your laptop can handel undervolting works cause it lowers the temps overall and that makes the cpu hold its turbo longer sooooo perf+

I am aware of a laptops cooling capacity. And I know there isn’t much thermal headroom. However gaining more thermal headroom is not what I’m after here. Yes it’s a good thing to do on laptops and may gain better performance. However it is not what I am asking. So it’s not helpful to me

The only thing you can do is boosting the gpu.
