before i start, there is no extreme cooling method here. please mods move this if needed.
I recently purchased a MSI Wind U130 cause my laptop died and i wanted something to tide me over. Also this is running the new Atom N450 CPU. I looked around after purchase and found no one who has pushed this new chip, so thought i would go adventure myself. See what it has got!
First thing was to open the machine itself, fit a 1gb DDR2 module in so i could have 2GB memory. Next was to find the PLL chip on the other side of the PCB. This reads:
From here i found that setFSB had that one in it's library of clock generators. First hurdle was at just 7fsb higher, i was getting lock ups.
I then discovered there is a link between this and the pci-e clock, so for reference, here is the superpi 1M time on stock with 2GB of memory
And here is my result so far. the key limiting factor again being the pci-e frequency but also adjusting the PLL N and PLL M is making a impact as well
And finally to verify that i am legit, here is a CPUz validation as well
Hope you like the results. Not mind blowing i know, but this is all cooled on the stock cooler and just two ram-sinks stuck on top. Netbook is still fully screwed shut and no signs of changes!
Oh, and any tips on things to push further will be appreciated. I think some Hexidecimal editing will be in order, so long as everything works with that as well.
