i'm talking about 17" c2d 2.33 and 15" 2.2 SR
want to oc the 17 to 2.4 and the 15 to 2.33.
Um...why? Are your notebooks not exhibiting enough heat for you?
its too cold here, i need more heat.
really, i want to oc them, have my reasons.
How do you expect to jam extra cooling into the tight enclosure?
Im no OC person, but id have to say you, sir, are nuts.
Can't imagine what reason that would be exactly. You would not notice the small gain at all.
thanks, need to look into it, darn thing...
While the C2D processor is immensely OC-able, the boards Apple use on them prohibit any kind of OC-age (correct me if I'm wrong plz)
It would also need to be done on Windows partition as Apple's EFI won't allow OC-ing, whereas BIOS will.
I was of this impression also.
I too want to find out how to do this, this is the easiest way to get a new mac when working with best buy warranty. Just burn the old one a and if you have had issues in the past and hopefully this will be your fourth problem, you get a new gen mac.
Knew I buy those PC Hardware and gamer mags and research most manufacturer's websites for info on their kit for a reason
However, the graphics card in the MBP is fully OC-able - and many people do, as it can run Crysis decently - in BIOS.
The thing is already screaming, don't break it.
You can stop CPU throttle. In normal conditions speed is down to 800MHz on C2D. You may try CoolBook. Be prepare, it will be nasty hot. Before you pay $10 try run yes process on both cores and see if you like it there. Don't burn yourself
Give your MB Pro some difficult task; try running BOINC
You'll use up loads of electricity, but you'll be saving the world by running it
Apple's EFI DOES NOT prevent overclocking. ZDnet provides a utility to overclock MacPro and Xserve right in OSX. http://www.zdnet.de/enterprise/mac/hardware/0,39038647,39192217-2,00.htm
Any overclock done to the FSB/CPU in windows will not be permanent. Only changes to the graphics card done with ATI tool will.
I am still looking for a tool that will work on Macbook Pros though.
You can overclock your GPU in Bootcamp/Vista/XP with Rivatuner.
Reason 1: I want to void my warrantee.
Reason 2: I want to fry my chips and logic board.
Reason 3: I want to complain that I broke my computer once I've done this.
Those aren't legitimate reasons???
My aren't we honest.
Side note: This is also known as fraud and you will go to jail for it. But hey, you might get a new computer!
He can take pics of his new cellmate from the pen to share with us with the iSight on his new MBP
Inmate 1: hey how did you end up here
Inmate 2: I robbed a bank
Inmate 3: I shot a cop
Inmate 4: I overclocked my macbook pro
the rest of the inmates: beating up inmate 4
don't dig up a dead thread! not funnay
Actualy I found it quite amusing!
How would they find out though if it's fried or can't boot up???
Can't anyone answer the question?
I'd really love to go from 2.4 Ghz to 2.7 Ghz on my MacBook. I'm fine with leaving the fans at 4000 RPM all the time.
OCing your computer is safe if you do it correctly. My PC workhorse at home is OCed from 2GHz to 2.6GHz on air cooling with minimal temperature differences. It's been like that for 4-5 years!
