Hi, I wanted to overclock my CPU( Intel Core i3 @2.53Ghz) and I'm a bit skeptical about it. Would overclocking it increase the temperature of the computer?
It is a Sony VAIO VPC laptop.
This picture shows my normal temperature, I'm worried about it overheating as well.

If its a laptop, DO NOT overclock, temperatures will rocket out with no-where for the heat to escape

Yes, overclocking dramatically increases the amount of heat produced. This is not good for a laptop, unless you keep it docked to some serious cooling power.

Also, I wouldn't be overclocking to something stupid and unnecessary, just to around 2.6-2.65Ghz.

That's so small an overclock you wouldn't be able to notice the difference.

Exactly...no reason to even overclock...it would be immeasurable.

It would only be small to start off with because of the heat issue...if it handled it well I would go to about 2.9Ghz.
Also do you know if it will void my warranty?

yes your warranty will most likely be void and also there is no point a laptop is something you don't want to overclock on. Its just not the right environment.
