Is it clever to overclock my chipset


I have a Intel Core i7 CPU 720QM 1.60GHZ @ 1.60GHZ but is it possible to overclock it and is there any improvements by overclocking chipset?? I thought 2.50GHZ, is it clever to do this and does it harm my chipset??

Thanx you!

The clever Windows 7 features Microsoft hasn't shown you
We were given a sneaky in-depth demo of Windows 7 by Microsoft today, going far behind the features trotted out by that funny-looking woman with overly-tonged hair during Steve Ballmer's keynote. Of course, you'll hopefully be able to download the beta for yourself. So here's our blow-by-blow guide...
