    Just got my machine the other day, so this is just initial findings.

    Stable overclock 2.66@3.00ghz and 9600m at 700/1600/1200:core/shader/mem nets a 3dmark06 score of 8200 under win7:

    Onto more tweaking... :cool:

    I think it might work from windows to overclock. I heard before of people overclocking their video cards in windows on an MBP.

    Sorry to bring this thread back from the dead, but can you update us on your max cpu/gpu overclock?

    Not possible to revive that CPU. The OP cooked it good! :p

    One thing I never grasped on these forums: why do people who know nothing of overclocking even bother posting?

    At any rate, the OC worked fine for the period I owned it - now on a i5 :D

    why would you want to overclock it? It will fry the logic board CPU and GPU because the MacBook's body doesn't provide enough ventilation.
