This question doesn't make sense.

There is no 'top' frequency. You would benefit from a frequency increase infinitely because the CPU could always process more data in each second.

The only time you could say 'it doesn't matter' is if you're talking like the difference in miliseconds which I guess wouldn't matter too much since humans view time in much larger forms.

as in, what point would it be that it wouldn't matter - as in the added heat/other disadvantages of the OC would beat out the 0.000000000000000000000000001 performance gain that you would get...

That is 100% specific to the CPU, the architecture of the CPU, and your cooling.

if you could clock a cpu at 10ghz or more it's would be incredibly fast , even if it was a single core it's would still kick ass ... but I assume the heat produced by this would be way too much.

Lol it would be possible to clock a Cpu that high, wouldn't it explode like Krypton

I read something about an 8350 getting up to 8.79 GHz earlier this year.
Why is it that he can hit a 3rd baseman on a frozen rope from 300 feet away, but he can't hit a 12 foot tall catcher from 60 feet 6 inches away?

Your laptop is a pretty poor overclocker, don't worry your pretty little head about it.
