Default Can you overclock a laptop?

Can you overclock a laptop, if so how? i asume the main issue would be heat!!! but the fan on laptops turns on and off depending and cpu heat, so would it mean that the fan is on more of the time?

This is the laptop in question

I'm pretty sure that in BIOS you can. Unless the company's locked it, which I have no idea for that ntonio, you should be able to. Yes, it well get hot, and you should have the labtop plugged in. Maybe get one of those cooling pads too... lol.. but yeah, you can overclock.

I've seen cyberpower go from a 3.8ghz to a 4.0ghz labtop, but it crashed massively, and this was a labtop, so yeah...

Don't try to OC IMO. You don't want it to get too hot.
