 What’s Overclocking To Laptop

 This same question has been asked over and over again on various forums platforms and social medial, “What Is Over Clocking is all about”.  Now let take an overall look at what is all about here. 

 What’s Overclocking To Laptop

To understand what Overclocking means,  you want to first know what exactly happens when Overclocking.

Every laptop CPU is (Clocked) which means that it is provided with a precisely timed signal called  (clock) which regulates how long it is given to complete each step of its operating process.

If stepped too fast it will malfunction because all the information will not have had percolated through and since the laptop CPU power consumption can be increased, Overclocking is when increasing it and adjusting the voltage to get better than maximum processing speed.

The maximum clock speed is determined by the manufacturer based on theoretical calculations and then actual tests.

The manufacturer puts a safety factor of a few percent on it and then declares it to be the maximum clock speed.

Some are categorized after testing. But the manufacturer 100% guarantees that it will run properly if the rest of the chip is kept within a specified range voltage and temperature.

In other words, Overclocking is a process in which taking advantage of the safety factor and that of the part of the laptop that is not at maximum allowable temperature.

 Factors That influence clock speed

What are the factors that can influence the clock speed on your laptop CPU?

The maximum clock speed is affected by several factors which include: Temperature, the CPU power consumption can increase, and cause timing problems which is a function of temperature,  other important are Chip, when the chip started to malfunction or back off,  and Power Supply Voltage.

The CPU’s clock speed is usually governed by the motherboard, as it holds the oscillator that generates the clock signal.

Overclocking is making it generate higher frequency clock signals.

 What is the best way to overclock my laptop?

There are various ways for this,  but the common one to change the clock frequency is through the BIOS settings.

However, the procedure to overclock varies across motherboards and processors, so the first thing to do is to find out the information specific to your processor model.

  Should I Overclock My Laptop

Though every processor has a max working clock regulated by the manufacturer,  so to avoid any jeopardy to your laptop processors can only be clocked to their capacity temperature.

See, it’s likely to get away with it, but for how long will your laptop last overclocking it.

And since overclocking is a risk,  all in all, you don’t have to put the processor in critical control, or calculations,

Yes,  you can actually overclock your laptop  CPU by changing the clock rate through the BIOS,  although not all the motherboards have the ability to do though,  so,  the question now is, will it work for your laptop model, and if it does work, for how long will it continue to work reliably?

The Pros and Cons of the Overclocking

Before you go ahead and overclock your valuable laptop,  we think you should also understand the aftermath of the consequences.   here are some pros and cons of overclocking.


Overclocking allows you to increase the performance of your laptop more than normal.

The thing is that you immediately get a boost speed higher than the maximum processing speed, imposter by the manufacturer.


The outcome of overclocking to your laptop includes:

  • Laptop Overheating
  • Both timing and thermal failure
  • Too much buzzy noise
  • Laptop freezing up
  • This might cause the chip to malfunction
  • Sometimes it might not work, so if it fails you may lose the laptop in the process

How Do I Overclocking My Laptop Processor

Here is how you overclock your laptop processor step by step, follow these easy tips to get it done anytime.

The first thing you want to do is to find out  If your laptop model is allowed, then Boot up the laptop into  BIOS by starting up the laptop and pressing usually F2, F8, some laptop models may be different though sometimes ESC  to enter BIOS in some laptops.

You can overclock by adjusting a multiply ratio, FSB(front serial bus), Northbridge, and HT.

This is tested using many software tools depending on intended use and strain.

More so, Overclocks can be had simply by leaving all settings the same and just increasing the multiplier in increments until it won’t start up or run stable.

What to consider during  overclocking

Things to consider,  if able to overclock are:

Always research or check manufacturers’ guidelines first.

Before you start overclocking your laptop always do your own thorough research and make sure to go through the manufacturer’s guidelines.

Always go for the lowest voltage that gives the desired overclock stability, because, with increased voltage comes also increased temperatures.

 Ask those already done it

This is one of the best and obvious thing to do, considering their advice, so with that you would be able to compare other people’s experiences with that specific CPU to get a range of reasonable expectations.

Though, this doesn’t say or ever guarantee that what works on one identical CPU will work on another, so you be warned already.


Temperatures!  So, if you are using good cooling fan stock fans, custom aftermarket air cooling, or liquid cooling, then that may be  your less concerned

Voltage supplied

The laptop voltage supplier is another thing you want to put into consideration, just because normally the CPU usually needs an increase when overclocking to any substantial amount.

It’s very important for it can determine the increase in the lifespan of hardware (varies on ranges used and is hardware-specific).
