Is my friend right about his point at overclocking in laptops?

So I recently overclocked my laptop using MSI Burner and usually the tempreture rises 60C-70C while playing games, (But with no games it is at 50c - 54C) however, he told me that you cannot overclock your laptop. and that it's a fake overclock, and told me it just burns your laptop from inside, I told him that shouldn't the gpu get damaged only if the tempreture is like 85C-100C he told me it's 60-70C for laptops, Basicly he is saying:
1-Overclocking in laptops is not a real overclocking
2-It can burn your laptop at 60C-70C

Is this actually true?

You can overclock a laptop but you will get about a 5% increase in performance... you shouldn't overclock it, there are too many risks of overheating and frying the GPU or any other components near it. Laptops are usually already overclocked.

this is a very flexible topic i will explain as i go
1-it is a real over clock
2-depends on the laptop some may melt and burn other components at high temp and i would not recommend over clocking it
2 continued-you mentioned gpus only get damaged at a certain temp this is not inherently true. Basically silicon is a semi conductor and the more volts and higher temp you stress it with the faster the semi conductor stop being a semi conductor and becomes a conductor witch kills the chip.

its really about what you are comfortable with the higher temps and volts the short life it will have

most laptops are actually under-clocked compared to there desktop counter parts

Weird, was reading an article where they are usually overclocked in the store before sold, makes sense though that they get underclocked to decrease temperatures.

If your gpu temperature went up a lot when your overclocked and you're that nervous you will burn your GPU I'd remove the overclock.

Yea but I wouldn't expect 5 years of gaming even without overclock since the gpu is a medium-high end gpu. that's the reason i overclocked.
