More Mhz doesn't mean a faster pc. U need to work your CPU, RAM, motherboard cihipset and GPU if u wanna see real progress. Its a whole lot of work and only a little noticable change!!
Remember you need to cool it a lot more (more noice) if u gonna do it. You need to cool not onley the CPU more but the whole chipset and GPU!! I stronley requment Zallman aircooling (because for the price of a good watercooling for overclocked hardware u can buy faster hardware and use your old coolers)

Personaly i dont think its word the trobble. The system becomes instable, noisy and hot (in temp and not in looks!)

You would have to overclock from the BIOS if your motherboard came with an overclocking feature. But overclocking a laptop is never a good idea because of the thermal (heat) issues. So it's not likely that your BIOS even has an overclocking feature. So the answer is yes, I do know how to overclock a PC, just not yours.

Why don't you oveclock your whole PC with a new 3.4GHz and D945PSN motherboard for 290.00 Bucks... I think it is faster and safer... :whistle:

my personal advice is ..... better not to overclock.... by doing overclocking UR CPU..... u will end up with either success or fail.... if it is success then welll good and cool... on the other hand if u fail... there is no other choice... u have to spend for a new piece... think... think... think.... whether it's affordable and really necessary... then proceed accordingly.....

cheers...

Note: yes, i have heard both successful and failure cases in overclocking, the percentage of failure leads (in longer run of the usage...) :) so, the ball is in ur court... decision is urs
