    IMO don't do it. Sounds like a way to kill the integrated card fast. Tell your friend overclocking laptops is a bad idea, cause laptop have cooling from hell.

    EDIT: PS, I overclock my laptop, but that is because I have GOOD COOLING, and actually monitor temps. If your friend has an integrated card, he might not know how to do this and break his computer.

    I think OCing an i3 with the GPU packaged with the CPU is different than OCing something like a GMA950, no?

    i agree, laptop overclocking is a bad idea. especially integrated on the cpu. i say forget about it, and buy/build a desktop pc if u want/need to overclock.

    I wouldn't bother the thermal increase vrs the gained performance would come at to great of cost and possibly damaging something the Intel HD chips are absolutely garbage for anything other then basic video
