    Complete specs please>?

    And PC use?

    I personally don't like OC much, little gains and increased risk... but more information might help us help you decide if its worth it for you.

    Model numbers would be better.

    But since you say its a laptop, automatically I would say no. Laptops generally don't have the headroom for overclocking - cooling becomes a bigger issue and you could very easily damage hardware from the extra heat generated by a faster running processor. Plus the only way to do it in a laptop is with generic software that can adjust or force different settings.
