    After ThrottleStopping my CPU and OC'ing the GPU, my MacBook Pro loses about 5% battery per hour of heavy gameplay. I know this is due to the power consumption of internal components being higher than what the PSU can supply. Does anyone know a reliable PSU that will be able to provide the power required without dipping into the internal battery?

    There are no other power bricks for the Macbook line because Apple does not license the MagSafe connector to 3rd parties.

    They make chineese contrefit ripoffs but are very poor quality and could potentially burn out or damage your mbp.

    The poster above is right Apple does not licence mag safe adapters to third partys.
