Cool Laptop Overclocking?!?!

Hi, ive read the sticky guide on overclocking at the top of the page and im wondering if overclocking a laptop is the same?

Say, i want to overclock my Core 2 duo 1.6Ghz intel chip in my latop to 2.0Ghz, what do i need to do?

i downloaded CPUID and this is my processor ----->



Might be a bit of a stupid useless question but im curious ta from UMASS

Please don't even try, unless you want to void your warranty and fry your notebook at the same time.

The thing about overclocking a laptop is that most BIOS just don't have the options to do so and there is no way to remove the increased heat created by the higher voltages needed by a faster running CPU.

Yea, as AR said, with a desktop you can just whack a big hsf on it and OC to as far as your brave enough to go. With a laptop it's normally already tuned to it's best performance/heat ratio. Unless you have really confident hack skills, don't bother.

You may be able to overclock OCZ laptops, but I think it would be safe to assume that you don't want to buy a new one.
