overclocking a intel i5 540m to 3ghz?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Currently turbo boost has raised the cpu clock from 2.53 ghz to 2.79 ghz. Cpu temp hovers around 35 to 44 celsius. I was wondering if it's possible to overclock it higher but without getting the temperature too hot. Maybe to 3ghz or 3.1. And what tool would I have to use? I used to use rightmark cpu utility, but idk if that's still good or if theres something better.

Typically not but I used to overclock my old gaming laptop, but not the cpu only the GPU. Which was a 8600m GT so a long time ago.
