I have an i7 2670qm CPU and I'm wondering if I could overclock it. What is the risk and what could happen to the CPU or other hardware devices? Is there anyone who has overclocked this specific CPU before?

The i7 2670qm is not an unlocked part. This means you will be unable to modify what the base frequency will run at. This effectively means you will be unable to overclock the CPU.
What is the risk and what could happen to the CPU or other hardware devices?
Damage due to overclocking is not covered under your warranty through Intel.
