Possible? Yes. Good Idea? Maybe. Increase in heat? Not really. *Note: This only works for Windows, and not every CPU is constructed the same. Results may Vary. Using nTune, under windows 7 professional, I was able to overclock the CPU to a whopping 2.6GHz stable. The highest I've gotten was 2.73GHz, but it started crashing faster then a granny driving a car. What I mean by not every CPU is constructed the same, my old logic board would start crashing after 2.26GHz... yet this one can hit up to 2.6GHz without issues. Attached are a screenshot, ignore the huge keyboard on screen, I don't have a PC keyboard right now, friend borrowed it.
