Overclocking Laptop

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi there, 

I have a Inspiron 13-5378 and i recently saw how small the heat sink was, due to the fact i barely move it, i added a bigger heat sink which keeps it super cool (under 40 degrees at boost) and i was wondering if/how i could overclock the CPU as it aint that fast and i have the cooling capacity to do so,

Thanks Scarlett

Intel Core i3-7100U can not be overclocked... Amazing to see such low temperatures in a laptop, at least it should work for a long time.

There's probably some sort of software trickery that can OC that thing, you just ain't gonna be doing it from the BIOS though.


I've been a Linux addict since October of 2018.

Unless your laptop has an mxm gpu module no

mxm is a discontinued standard that was intended to give easy upgradability to laptops
