How can I overclock my CPU?

I recently bought a VivoBook (X560UD) and I'm having troubles playing games.

The drivers are all up to date but the performance in the games is not good (I've been dealing with a lot of lag).

I want to make a overclock on my computer's CPU but I don't know how to do it.

Extreme tuning utility is not compatible with my processor I don't know what to do..

My CPU is an Intel Core i7 8550U, I have 8Gb RAM and a NVIDIA Geforce GTX 1050 GPU.

 

Waiting for your answer,

Only K and X processors can be overclocked.

 

For your vivobook, you should use ONLY the drivers from the manufacturer. The switching between the Intel and Nvidia graphics requires driver modifications (from the manufacturer) that the generic Intel drivers do not provide.
