How to Over-Volt & Over-Clock The AMD Radeon R5 M430 2GB from a Lenovo Ideapad 110-15ACL


Recommended Posts

So a year ago I started modding the R5 M430 GPU since its so slow by stock, I found out how to overvolt & overclock the gpu & extend all limits.

 

The main problem with AMD A-Series APU's is the AMD APM Application Power Management & it may cause & likely does cause the Northbridge frequency to fluctuate & cause continuous drops of frames per second by 50%.

 

With AMDMsrTweaker in command prompt with a specific command can disable APM, increasing stable fps in theory but may disable the boost clock, so there is a trade off I suspect.  I have yet to test it on the A8-7410.

 

I wonder if the OverdriveNTool is compatible?  I'll have to test it.  Doubtful.

 

I tested it out & eventually you'll run into hard shutdowns with too much voltage.  Just need to detach the battery and reset the power to get it to turn back on again.

 

I think it was no more than 1.188v if I remember correctly but will need to get it all lined up again as I bought the A8-7410 & R5 M430 2GB DDR3 motherboard for $25 on eBay & need to pickup the laptop again since someone stole my laptop, the Lenovo Ideapad 110-15ACL.  I need to pickup the laptop again, a good shape one for parts is $40 so not a big deal & the 16GB DDR3-1600 stick is $50 & a cheap 256GB 2.5 inch SSD is what $18.

 

So all in all you can line this up cheap if you wanna fiddle with low end hardware for fun or if you have a laptop with an AMD Radeon R5 M430 2GB DDR3 then u can use my guide.

I just bought everything I need except for the single module 16GB DDR3-1600 sodimm.  Will have to buy that later.  Otherwise I got the heatsink from AliExpress for $12.96 shipped & the motherboard from eBay for $26.98 & the a laptop for parts for $44.43 which needs my $15 256gb 2.5 inch ssd.  Which makes a total so far @ $99.37 & I Have a $5 stick of 8GB DDR3-1866 at the house even know the AMD A8-7410 only supports 1600, it's all good.  Total investment would be $150 with the 16GB stick for an O-K laptop, but its fun to tweak them a bit is why I'm doing it mainly.  It's super easy to replace the motherboard on this laptop as the whole bottom case comes off and everything is at your finger tips, which is hella nice.

 

My next project will be with the Lenovo Ideapad 330S-15ARR AMD Ryzen 5 2500U & I'll replace the motherboard again with the AMD Radeon 540 mobility 2GB GDDR5 64-bit bus width which is a bummer but its Lexa so it's sorta quick at $80 for the laptop & $80 for the board & I need to pickup a 32GB stick of DDR4 sodimm for it to make it 36GB of RAM, as it has 4GB soldered.

 

Does anyone know of an all AMD cheap Lenovo with Ryzen 7 APU & Discrete Radeon GPU with 4GB 128-bit GDDR5?

I have an older Lenovo with a A8-6410 (7410 just has slightly faster clocks) and it absolutely supports 1866.  The CPU is limited to single channel so make sure to use the 1866 if you can to help the very low bandwidth.  I ran a single 8gb stick of 1866 and tried to add another 4gb but with both sticks it would force both to 1600mhz though so the IMC may be weak on these.  With you having a new model maybe you'll have better luck.

I bought Crucial single module 16GB DDR3-1866, whereas before I ran a single module of 16GB DDR3-1600.  So I hope to see some better performance.  I plan on fully unlocking the system BIOS, so i'll let you know on that front.  They say I need a programmer but I think I could flash it using the recovery method.  I hope the guy will mod the BIOS & let me proceed with flashing it through the FN+R function recovery method for lenovo.

 

I am planning on disabling AMD APM Application Power Management, because it has a horrible performance penalty on AMD A-series & all other older AMD tech that carry the technology.  As it adjusts the northbridge clock downward while under load in game while within the temperature threshold. 

 

Can someone find a good article in technical terms what AMD APM does exactly to the northbridge & the cpu voltages & frequencies & temperature limits & power limits?

 

Thanks

I would suggest taking a look at AMD's documentation hub: https://www.amd.com/en/search/documentation/hub.html#sortCriteria=%40amd_release_date descending
