Also is the processor unlocked? or locked? Here's his laptop: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Compaq-CQ56-250-Processor-Windo... Many thanks.

I would recommend against overclocking a laptop. Keemann January 2, 2013 3:52:59 PM Yeah but is it actually possible with this processor? Thanks. Can't find your answer ? Ask !

It is possible but a safe overclock would not be significant enough to notice outside of benchmarks. The proccesor as far as I know can do it. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
