    I've been playing some graphically intensive games over a bootcamp of Windows 7 on my Macbook Pro (late 2010) for a while now, but have noticed some lagging in performance overtime. I've heard that overclocking can give the computer a boost while playing such games, but at what cost? Is there any negative attributes to overclocking? Does it really improve performance by a lot? Is it legal? Can anyone explain this?

    Thanks,
