Overclocking my laptop.

HP Recommended
HP Notebook - 15-bs192od
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I don't like the fact that with a laptop that could pull 4Ghz, the max is set to 2.2 with only a base of 1.8. I am aware of the whole 'this is for your safety' thing but no, I want TRUE performance, not this dinky 50% crap. So, does anyone have links to software and stuff that will unlock the ability to edit these settings?

There is no such TRUE performance on 99% for normal notebooks. You have to buy a machine which is designed for overclokable.

 

The main reasons are warranty and reputation. Vendors (all of them) don't want users to send machines back during  warranty period (normally 1 year) and users screaming because machines die very soon.

 

Hope this makes sense,

 

Regards.

Overclocking requires voltage increase and that generates a LOT more heat.

 

With desktops, this is handled by installing a more powerful CPU fan or adding liquid cooling.

 

Neither of these is an option for consumer grade laptops.

 

The end result is most likely going to be burning out the laptop, turning it into an electric brick -- and repairing that will cost more than replacing the laptop with a more powerful model.
