    If it doesn't come with overclocking options to start with, chances are, no update will include it.

    Also, its an Intel made motherboard. Again, my bet is they won't allow overclocks on their boards.

    You'd have to buy a whole new board to be able to overclock, and unleash the true potential of that chip you got there. From experience, its an awesome overclocker (E6300 or E6320 right?)

    wait, E6300 or T6300?

    I'm not very well versed with laptop CPUs, which the T6300 would suggest.

    For the E6300, I used a gigabyte 965P-DS3R, but I think those are kinda of outdated already, and may be hard to find. The updated P35-DS3 should be a good alternative.
