    Voids warranty, I know. I don't want that to happen though, since I bought Applecare already (well over 2 years left). I just want to try running it higher, just for the sake of it :p. Not long term. Just for a maybe an hour or so, then reverting back to stock. Can Apple tell if you've done so?

    If you've ever built your own computer, you probably can understand how I feel.

    I've built many computers, repaired computers for a living, and no, I do not understand how you feel. An MBP has one user replaceable part should you damage either the CPU or GPU through overclocking: the logic board. Why mess with the stability (and longevity) of a computer that's gloriously tinker-free?

    Cheers for that. Was helpful :)

    @Other guy: As a hobbyist, tinkering around is fun for me. If you don't feel that way, fair enough. Curious, did you post just to prove that point though?
