Had one a while ago when i had a gaming computer and then handed it all off to a nephew Overclocking: If it comes with software that i can easily do it with like the AMD APU i have in the current laptop SLI or Crossfire: more than likely not as i know nothing of it Additional Comments: Needs a mx cherry red keyboard and an optical drive. Silent is good but not necessarily needed.
