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?
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.
