    Does anybody know how to check if a 2011 iMac is underclocked? Is a 2011 iMac able to be overclocked?

    What, the cpu? The gpu? I know you can overclock the gpu on windows. The cpu is factory clocked and underlocks or overlocks itself depending on its current workload.

    Thanks for the quick reply. The gpu overclocking is what I'm interested in. Is this process fairly easy?

    Overclock it, if it doesn't melt then it was underclocked!

    Yes fairly easy. Just get msi afterburner for windows and adjust the clocks as you see necessary. Often a good idea to use smc fan control to lock in the fan speeds before you go into windows, or use a fan control program while on windows.
