I want to overclock my linux laptop and before you say that laptops are not meant to overclock this laptop I tested and ran a stress test for over 20 minutes at 100% cpu utilization the cpu didn't go below base clock and temps stayed below 80c so I want to squeeze as much performance as possible so probably the highest clock it can go without throttling at 100% cpu utlitization. So after reading all this I am going to ask my question how can I do so with an app or through the terminal?

then do it... seems like you already tested it to make sure there is headroom. But I would run a test for >1 hour using aida64 AND firestrike to do a combined test.

Most laptops cannot. Generally BIOS overclocking is what is used in Linux.

Main: AMD Ryzen 7 1700X, Nvidia GTX 780, 16 GB 2667 MT/s DDR4 Fedora 33 x86_64

Secondary: Intel Xeon X5670, Nvidia GTX 660, 24 GB 1333 MT/s DDR3 Windows 10 Home x86_64

Server: Intel Xeon X5670, 60 GB 1333 MT/s DDR3-R Ubuntu Server 20.04.1 LTS x86_64

Laptop: Intel Core i5-3320M, 16 GB 1600 MT/s DDR3 Fedora 32 x86_64
