Overclocking Intel Core 2 Duo T6600

Hello,
I currently have an msi A6000 laptop that utilizes Intel Core 2 Duo T6600. The current speed of the processor is 2.2 GHz. Could someone give me a short guide on how I can overclock it to about 2.5~2.6 GHz?
I know people do not usually recommend overclocking laptops, but I won't be overclocking more than 2.5~2.6 GHz, the laptop is always in cool temperature (External Fan) and its a back up laptop so I don't really mind if it breaks.
Thanks.

Once again, here are the specs of the laptop just in case it helps:
Product Number: 9S7-168324-029
A6000-029US
• Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor T6600
• Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium
• MSI Exclusive Color Film Print Technology
• MSI Exclusive ECO Engine Power Management System
• 16" 16:9 Wide Screen Display (1366x768)
• 4G memory plus 320GB hard drive

  1. Just forget it, you can't overclock that cpu the only thing i can recommend is to download throttlestop app, it is a good app for lowering voltage and help throttling issues.

    I'm kinda new to this stuff...so i have 3 questions if you don't mind.
    1) The Intel Core Duo 2 T6600 is not overclockable?
    2) Will that higher my laptop's speed and FPS in games?
    3) Could you explain in more detail lowering voltage and throttling issues?
  3. 1- no it's not possible.
    2- no, that program will not overclock, just set lower voltages(undervolting) and lower clocks for less heat and lower power consumption.
    3- Depending on the voltage, the lesser means less heat and throttling mean sometimes the gpu/cpu when reaches certain temperatures it down clocks it automatically, sometimes in certain laptops they slowdown pretty easy with temperatures/load that can be acceptable otherwise.

    Last 2 part question,
    So this throttlestop app is the only way to make my computer faster? Is there anything else I can do to get more FPS in game?
  5. Set the system to high performance? :P

    Buy a new computer, that's what you need to do.
