Doesn't this BIOS support overclocking?

Depending on the board, your current BIOS might already have the options, but in a hidden "advanced" screen. For example, my old Gigabyte 790GX board had an Award BIOS on it, in which voltage settings and such were hidden. But you could press something like ALT-F11 or something silly which would "unlock" those options.

CPU voltage is the maximum amount of volts that is being routed to your computer's processor at any one time. Increasing CPU voltage can enable your laptop to run at higher speeds, but at the cost of shortening its useful life. CPU voltage is adjusted by using the BIOS settings for your pc, but be cautious with your increases lest you inadvertently damage your system.
