Doubling your notebook clock when compiling LibreOffice

I bought a $15 "BMW"








The "BMW" let me switch the "turbo" mode of my LibreOffice compilation. Normally my Dell Vostro i7 takes 5 or 6 hours compiling LibreOffice with the internal cooling system, too weak to push the heat out of the notebook case.


From a trottled 1,2GHZ in all 4 cores to 2,9 GHz. Now my compilations takes around 2 to 3 hours.
A cheap overclock indeed.
