I heard that you can't over clock el' cheapo laptops. Is this true?
i would say yes that is true
Overclocking laptops is not recommended because their limited cooling options can easily lead to system instability and hardware failure.
That's what I figured. What if I upgrade the fan and replace the thermal compound with Arctic Silver 5?
You could do that, the AS5, but unfortunately you won't really see a worthwhile improvement. Even with a cooler stand, or an aftermarket fan placed into the system it will still have issues if you were to force an overclock. One or two fans in such a confined area limit your ability to have that luxury sadly.
Best of luck to you though!
I don't think so it's quite possible, since they have limited overclocking space, and then again, there's the cooling factor. You can't really play with the voltages, and then motherboards usually don't support overclocking on laptops.
