Centrino is the name of the technology package, not the CPU. You have a Core 2 Duo. And the Radeon HD 3470 graphics are better than average, but low end for gaming.

Generally speaking, laptops aren't overclockable. Even if it's possible it's not adviseable due to the increase in temperature & decrease in battery life. Did you check the BIOS to see if any overclock options are available? You *may* have to use overclocking software, in which case the results will be very limited.
