    Most laptops won't really overclock, and they tend to run very hot to begin with so I wouldn't even bother attempting to overclock a laptop.

    4GB DDR3 SODIMM

    I have seen lots of videos that show people overclocking there computers to get better performance so I wanted to see if I could attempt it.

    If you OC a laptop, which you shouldn't, you drop the multi on the CPU and up the bus speed. That's all you can safely do in most cases. Even that isn't very smart.
    Look up to see the stuff I say. Look down to see my PCs.

    Most laptops won't even let you overclock the CPU. You can overclock the graphics, but you need sufficient cooling for your laptop or it will overheat.

    CPU AMD FX-8320
    Motherboard Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3
    RAM 16GB (2x8GB) G.Skill Ripjaws X DDR3 1600
    GPU Asus Radeon HD 6850
    SSD Kingston HyperX 3K 120GB
    HDD WD Blue 1TB

    OS Windows 7

    Overclocking a laptop is a bit trickier than overclocking a desktop, but it is possible and you can get a nice performance boost.

    I have overclocked my Mobility Radeon 3650 from:
    Engine Clock: 600MHz - 735MHz OC
    Memory Clock: 500MHz - 615MHz OC

    Download and try Rivatuner, if it doesn't work you can check out the videoguide I'm currently uploading and will soon post.

    You can overclock your CPU with SETFSB, you just need to know your computer models PLL.

    What are your peak load temps?
