Yes, but if you do you will could destroy your computer.

Laptops have enough issues with heat, overclocking will just burn it out.

Welcome to SevenForums like Lordbob says, and it's just never a good idea to overclock a laptop that is providing you even can and it doesn't have a locked bios.
Also using software is never recommended.
As for having the internals exposed well I don't know why you would even do that meaning risk verses reward.
But that's your choice.JMO Fabe

I completly agree with Lordbob 7 thefabe.

OCing a Laptop is a really bad idea.

Other than the heat issues, you also will have locked bios. (And Software OCing is really bad idea)

A Laptop and its hardware simply are not designed to handle the extra stress OCing brings.

Is 67C Max your temps for heavy loads in real world applications etc?

If So, It will be far higher that that under a Prime load when stress testing.

Either way, 67C loads are quite high for stock speeds if you are considering OCing. Meaning you'll have little to no headroom.

Seriously? Virtually every laptop I 've had (about 10 of them), I've been concerned with overheating. Couple of the beasts used to shutdown randomly till I undervolted them with RMClock (Ah, those were the days!), some others i've used with chillmats or balanced power schemes. And 50 degrees at idle is definitely not cool, thats what I get with my Core i7!

You want to squeeze the last drop of performance out of your laptop, try maxing the RAM and optimizing the OS.

Gotta add my voice to the chorus of "Don't OC that laptop."

Bad idea.

Laptops are notorious bad for overclocking. DONT

You can download CPUZ CPUID - System & hardware benchmark, monitoring, reporting Under the memory tab it will show most of your Ram timings. Problem still remains if your bios is locked you won't be able to change any of these settings.
If your bios isn't locked and you can find where to change these setting you'll need to know how to and what to change them to plus this usually requires increasing the voltage and we're back to the same point. It's not worth the effort or preformance boost. If you would even notice it. Fabe
