    Hello guys, just got my air 11.6 cheapest version.

    I was playing tf2 under Os X and the performance is just a tiny bit too low for good playing, i feel like a tiny overclock of the 1.4 ghz cpu would greatly help.
    Considering the core 2 duo is a very mature cpu, and that the laptop doesnt seem to heat that much, it might just work. Of course Im talking about even just a lil oc to 1.6ghz.

    So I'm wondering, has anybody done this with any success?

    The motherboard is equipped with EFI, not BIOS; so overclocking directly via the BIOS is out of the question. Unless you can find a software solution that writes to the motherboard (EFI) and is compatible with Apple proprietary hardware, then it's safe to say that it is impossible.

    That's right on.
