Hi guys, I have an intel core i5 processor laptop by acer. Is it possible to overclock the chip and make it faster? I need it for high impact 3d games.

Really, not on any laptop. They don't have enough cooling to handle the higher temps a worthwhile overclock would produce. Heck, they even overheat half the time at stock speeds, if you don't have them set on something to keep the bottom vent clear.
