To do what you say on the dell M6700 you must first install an XM series processor.


For example 3920XM or 3940XM


XM = Extreme Edition = Unlocked multiplier


In addition to this processor you also need a bios that allows you to change the CPU settings.
The DELL M6700 is locked by default.


Your processor is factory locked at these maximum speeds:

single core turbo 3.7ghz
dual core turbo 3.6ghz
turbo on 4 cores 3.5 ghz

As also visible from the throttlestop program
