Overclocking will also increase the temperatures of the VRM and the chipset, as well as draw more power, and notebook power supplies often have very very little headroom when it comes to their output. It is very not recommended to OC your laptop.

I know, but my clevo W860CU is known for its capabilities in overclocking and cooling, it has 2 seperate fans that suck air like a monster. I know my components are cool smile.gif
