Making laptop overclocking safer with cooling pad.

Hey guys!

I'm not really an expert in this overclocking stuff but I heard that unlike overclocking a laptop is "dangerous" since it creates heat and etc. So even though I want to overclock my laptop this "dangerous factor" makes me feel kinda scared. Still, would it work out somehow if I were to buy a good quality cooling pad for my laptop and LATER overclock it? I understand that the heat "danger" will probably still exist BUT wouldn't it be significantly if not drastically lower? Thank you in advance :) )

The coolers on laptops don't cool well. Overclocking a laptop no matter what you do is a bad idea.

Yes I understand the risks and I also know that the coolers of the laptop ITSELF don't cool well, but that is why I'm asking whether buying a high quality cooling pad / external laptop cooler will somehow make things better. :)

I found with my cooling pad on my laptop it helped a bit. But it didn't seem enough to justify overclocking though.
