Which PLL has IBM X41

I want to see if it's possible to overclock my X41 using SetFSB or Clockgen, but I can't find out which clock generator (PLL) my laptop has.
Can anybody help me on this or are there other ways to overclock my laptop?

Additional Comment:

I found out myself now, according to this page:
http://www.digchip.com/datasheets/pa...parts_cy05.php

It is a CY28411, which can't be used for software overclocking.

you could consider the pin-mod for overclocking; it makes fsb 400mhz cpu's run at 533

Is that possible with the CPU being soldered onto the mainboard? Has anybody tried that?

it's definitely possible - all you need to do is bridge the pins on the backside of the mobo. solder isn't necessary either - sometimes conductive ink is good enough.

It could be quite cool if my IBM X41 could run 2.13 GHz. I will try that next week.

Sad to say that I couldn't get access to my CPU's pins. I guess the motherboard has got more layers.
