overlock a laptop?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Is it a good idea to ever overclock a laptop? Would you have to install some custom CPU fan? This would also decrease the battery life, yes?

not a good idea all the cramped components cant handle the extra heat plus it would decrease battery life

Wouldn't recommend it at all. Unlike desktops they are easier to handle and maintain, labtop are usually built directly to what is inside. Adding parts to a labtop can be more difficult than changing/adding cooling products in a PC. Plus, even if proper cooling, the plastic under the system is more likely to melt becore the core does itself
