I don't know specifically about overclocking but how about increasing the minimum speed of your CPU through TLPUI? Would that help?

You specifically ask about speeding up the CPU but without risk to the CPU or other parts.  The manufacturer of a motherboard is looking for long life and reliable operation at the highest possible speed.  It may well be possible to overclock a system to increase speed but the system will run hotter.  Extra heat is likely to reduce component life time, decrease reliability and will need extra cooling just to operate.

The thread below is mainly about slow booting.  It covers things like disabling startup services and fixing the system IP address to reduce startup time.
But a system that is slow to boot will generally be slow to run and the post explains that old hardware is the main limiting factor on performance so is worth reading.

The most commonly recommended performance improvements - upgrading CPU, adding extra RAM, changing a mechanical disk to a solid state disk - require hardware changes.

I think from your other posts that you have a system manufactured in 2009. If you aready have 16GB RAM and an SSD you may already have done the easy improvements.

Thread moved to hardware.

That's for your answer, but i was trying to help someone how doesn't know less than me (gaas)

But that link of a close topic.. is about how to fix slow booting ,not overclocking your cpu.
Althought it's true if someone try to overclock they I guess should try to put more coolers. If that overclocking is not so extreme

Sorry mod, but I'll put a better and more specific new topic in the section of software. About how to overclock a cpu ,trying to be that topic about Linux Lite. It surely won't be the best information about it but tomorrow I'll post what I'll find out.

In my case I don't want to risk my cpu or other parts of my computer,

But for people with that "patience" and perhaps some experience with that on another OS

That's the questions:

First, is there a way to speed up the cpu on Linux Lite? :computer
is that a different method if we have a different hardware?

Please explain that detail, Thanks in advance
