    Default Possibility of overclocking a laptop CPU...

    I'm still pretty damn virginal when it comes to overclocking, and am still getting my funds/plans going for my first real build. But in the mean time I'm curious to overclock the CPU in my laptop. I know that laptops typically won't have the proper cooling capacities or the options in the bios to really get much more speed. So is it even practical or possible to try to bring my CPU speed up?

    99% I'm sure you can't unless you built it from scratch by yourself.

    This.

    Also, laptops run pretty hot as it is, and generating more heat without increased ability to transfer it away from your core components would not bode well for you.

    My advice? Don't OC on a laptop. You can, however, upgrade parts.

    Ya laptops are pretty much pieces of hardware that are frozen in time.....can't do much with them after they leave the factory.

    Though I must admit, the thought of opening up a laptop, ghetto rigging a water block, and overclocking the snot out of it is pretty darn funny

    that was kinda my thought... but that's more than likely just the boredom of being in Maryland talking...
    But that definitely answers my curiosity about the stability of even attempting it. Guess I'll just wait for my upcoming build. But once I get it done, I may just go ahead and clock the hell out of it just to see what happens. I'll let ya'll know if I do...
