  1. Your on a laptop? Your only option would be overclocking the chip through software if it even exist anymore. I wouldn't recommend it, I tried it years ago with a bios locked computer. It never really ran stable and for any length of time.

    I believe the name of the program was setfsb or something like that. OR PllGen maybe
  2. The CPU can be OCed but the Motherboard bios probably dont allow it.
    Most PC manufacturers dont offer any options in the bios to overclock so that people buying them dont cook their PC and try to replace it under warranty.
    The only way to OC the CPU is to purchase another Motherboard.

    You need to make sure that your case will fit an ATX motherboard and that there are no proprietary connections that are Lenovo specific.

    Why are you wanting to OC?
  3. ^ I think he's on a Lenovo laptop man
  4. Search it!
    IdeaCentre K300
  5. LOL Ah my mistake, lol

    Wasn't aware that Lenovo made desktop computers, sigh
  6. We need to know the Whole Model number.
    K300 ?
  7. Well disregard my laptop rant then, lol

    And yes your option now would be a new motherboard, or through software, and I don't recommend overclocking via software.
  8. ^I agree OCing through software is never very stable.
