angle 1I may only have been posting here for a couple weeks, but it’s pretty obvious that there are two major sects in the “netbook crowd”: those looking for the best battery life possible and those looking for the best performance they can cram into a tiny package.

If you count yourself among the latter, the results from the power-hungry users at the MyHPMini forums should be right up your alley.

Several members have managed to crank the Mini 311‘s Atom from the 1.6GHz stock speed up to an impressive (if not slightly dangerous) 2.1GHz. Speeds just under 2.0GHz, however, seem to yield a solid performance boost without sacrificing stability. Several users also report pushing the Ion GPU to more than 500MHz.

So how do they do it? Using Asrock’s OC Tuner utility. By making a simple addition to the program’s config file, they’ve been able to overclock the Mini to their hearts’ content.

The site offers a complete look at overclocking your Mini’s CPU and GPU – well worth a look if you’re anxious to extract every ounce of horsepower you can from your netbook.
