    Hello,
    This is my new ASUS laptop:
    ASUS ROG STRIX GL703GE-ES73 SCAR Edition (i7-8750H, 32GB RAM, 1TB SATA SSD + 1TB SSHD, NVIDIA GTX 1050Ti 4GB , 17.3" Full HD (1920 x 1080) 120Hz 3ms, Windows 10) Gaming Laptop
    Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-8750H CPU @ 2.2GHz.

    Can anyone tell me how to overclock the CPU to 3.0GHz?
    Thank you.

    I don't think that's a good idea in a laptop they already run real hot as it is, u mite end up blowing your box up, heat is always a big time issues in laptops.

    the problem their is hes heat sink and cooling system is calibrated 2.2 GHZ it was not design to run anything over that speed...heat will be a issue he will end toasting it up....but hey is hes money to burn away.;) i remember in the old days people would over clock AMD in their desktop but compensate by swapping the head sink for a heavy duty one u cant do that in a laptop.

    Can we know the reasons you want to overclock it other than gaming? So that we can know the best alternative rather than doing something that would be inimical to your expensive mobo.

    It is stated by those who have it that the fans are very noisy and overclocking might just increase that.

    If you should decide to o/c you should get an AIO liquid cooler set up. You can pick them up for around $100. U.S.

    It's a laptop, so that's not possible. The only thing that can be done to improve thermals it's a ventilated base and apply liquid metal instead of the generic thermal paste that asus uses.
