We have a sub-forums specifically for topics on overclocking.....
Overclocking specific parts speeds up different things. Overclocking the CPU increase overall general performance of your PC, or eliminates possible bottlenecks (or relieves) it may cause in games or on the GPU. (Speaking in general, not just your laptop).
A slow CPU will hold back the performance of 2 or more video card setups, or will hold back the overall general performance of your PC (not just FPS).
Overclocking RAM gives a boost in memory bandwidth. That can be beneficial to certain things like productivity suites, or enhance the performance of an IGP (most notably on AMD APUs).
Overclocking a GPU mainly gives a boost in FPS in games, just to keep it simple.
Think of overclocking like bolting on parts to the engine of a car. It gives off more HP (performance), but you have to maintain that extra power. In a car, that would be forged internals, or a better radiator for cooling. On a PC that would be adding volts and upgrading your cooling solution. The faster you make your parts go, the more voltage it requires to keep it stabilized, the more cooling you need to dissipate all the extra heat.
On your laptop without going into risky mods, the only thing you can overclock is your GPU. I do not recommend laptop overclocks of any kind regardless of how clean or cool it is.
