Windows 7: OverClocking AMD A8-3520M APU 1.6GHz - Lenovo Ideapad Z575 Laptop

OverClocking AMD A8-3520M APU 1.6GHz - Lenovo Ideapad Z575 Laptop

I got this laptop a year ago and it seems that 1.6 GHz is not fast enough. I know how to overclock a computer in the bios, just not on a laptop. How do I overclock an AMD A8-3520M APU on a lenovo ideapad Z575 laptop. I would like it to go from 1.6 to 2.5 if that is possible. If not, maybe 2.0.

As I always say (and most members on here will say the same) don't bother overclocking a Laptop.

They have limited airflow, the CPU's run pretty hot at stock speeds without putting further stress on them. You can't easily upgrade the cooling on them and most laptop bios are locked so you can't overclock in the first place.

Bottom line it's just not worth the hassle and the gains from say 1.6ghz to 2ghz would be negligible anyway.
