    Dear all,

    First of all, do not tell me there is no way to overclock the MBA. I know someone use software, such as RMClock and nvidia system tools, to overclock some old MBA, but not 2010.

    I have already checked those softwares, and they just do not work with 2010 MBA in win7.

    Are there any soft methods to overclock 2010 MBA?

    BTW, I have double checked from Intel web site, MBA 2010 mc503 uses SL9400 (1.86GHz, FSB 1066MHz) which use the same voltage with its higher frequency version SP9400 (2.4GHz). It means, SL9400 would be able to work at 2.4GHz with FSB overclock to 1333MHz without higher voltage.

    I have already got the circuit diagram of the MBA mc503 (MLB_K16_mac book air.pdf) and all the chips information. If you need those documents, please drop me an e-mail ( .

    So if soft method is no used, shall we use some hard way?

    No one reply, so I would like to assume that MBA mc503 has no chance to over clock.
