I have windows 7 ultimate installed on thinkpad x230. The lenovo power manager is installed, too, system performance setting set to maximum turbo, so there is nothing higher than this, and according to system explorer by sysinternals, the cpu frequency is 2601 - looks like it has not been overclocked. How to do that?

By the way, the app shows multi core activity, so I am not sure what to think.
When I keep the cores temperature with think fan within 80 Celsius, is it generally safe to keep the machine of this age and make constantly over clocked? I use the laptop for music, which is when the power matters most, but otherwise browsing or YouTube can benefit of extra GHz but not as a must, though useful.
