    Is this possible on a Mac Pro? I upgraded my 2.8 ghz to a hex core 3.46 3690 - I've read elsewhere on some PC's people are able to over clock this processor into the mid 4.x ghz range? Is this possible on my MP 5,1?

    Thanks.

    I wish Mac Pros can be overclocked, that'd be so much fun and so cool... perhaps one day

    Where would the harm be when Apple takes 4 years between product cycles. Give me an extra GHz at year 3 please?

    I'd say it's more like 2 year non-Apple cycles. Speaking of, I forgot where we were at...Tic or Toc?
