I5-7300HQ Overclocking

I own a Dell 15 7577 which has a i5-7300HQ 2.5ghz up to a 3.5ghz boost. All four cores only go up to 3.1ghz and I want to try to get all four up to 3.3ghz to 3.5ghz. I have been researching for the past week trying to get all the information I can. I do understand that everyone will say its a laptop its not a good idea well the CPU now runs between 60 to 65 under max load. I am not trying to do anything crazy. So from what I read people say that it is not possible to overclock this chip but I have read someone was able to overclock their i7-7700HQ by 300mhz. I realize they are not the same chip but they are both HQ's and I am very determined to figure this out. Was just wondering if we could come together and figure this out

I want better performance in X4 foundations as it is very CPU intensive and I do not have the money to get another computer for a little while.

From what I have read I think it might be possible with SETFSB if I am able to figure out the PLL and input it into SETFSB or somehow unlock throttlestop to allow me to check the overclock box in the FIVR tab. I definitely could be wrong though. XTU frequency's are greyed out.

Thanks for any input!

So im almost a 100% sure the chip cant be overclock but when I was on HMBOT today I saw XTU benchmark scores 300marks higher than mine. Does anyone have any idea what settings I could change to get to that score?

mines is high 600's

The record on HMBOT for XTU is 920, with multiple other people in the 900's.

So last night beat the top CPU benchmark on user benchmark. I was able to get a around a 10% percent performance increase by changing the voltages. The problem is that I don't know exactly what I'm doing so it might be possible to get more I just don't want to kill my chip. If anyone could chime in that knows what there doing and maybe help me dial in the voltages to get the maximum performance. I received the score with the chip pull 35.7W and I have no idea how to get it to pull the full 45W which I guess might raise the performance more?
