    Hope I have this in the right forum first...

    But I want to overclock my i7 3610QM from stock 2.3Ghz up to the 2.7Ghz.

    Here's my BIOS. Curious if that means anything to you all, in how I'd get my overclock.

    Thanks

    I can't see your BIOS :/

    Look for core ratio or turbo ratio or something like that.

    Why not call Alienware Support? Depending on the type of warranty you bought.the support guys will access your computer and do it for you. When I bought my first Alienware,that's what I did. It does depend on your warranty though.

    Personally I wouldn't bother. The extra heat and power drain with a laptop is not worth your performance gain. In a desktop it is different because you can have your own superior cooling and airflow.

    With a laptop they design it around the thermal properties of the included GPU and CPU at stock

    The M17x has quite big heatsinks in the back. I was messing with one last week that i was fixing and it was running quite cool so ill say there is room for some OC.

    Not sure if its the same BIOS as the one i was looking but i was only messing with the FSB a little to increase OC.
