Alienware 17 R4 Overclocking

Hi, I purchased an Alienware 17 R4 laptop back in 2017. I'm interested in looking into overclocking but don't see any overclocking tools in the Alienware Command Center for Notebooks. The information sheet for the laptop states this about the processor: Intel(R) Core (TM) i7-7820HK (Quad-Core, 8MB Cache, Overclocking up to 4.4 GHz) What am I missing or not understanding? Thank you. Roger

Re: Alienware 17 R4 Overclocking

The following support page should help but notice the sentence at the top of the page....

Alienware supports overclocking only when you order the system overclocked from factory.

That could be why you do not see the OC control in the ACC.

Thank you for the response. That must be it then. I'll reach out to them and see if there is anything that can be done at this point. I also purchased the extended warranty so who knows. Roger
