    I'm not sure if it is possible to overclock the processor on Macs. I may be wrong, however. Let's see what the others say about this.
    Asking for help is different from being stupid. Fanboys can rot in @#$%!

    It's a hackintosh, not a Mac.

    Dude, seriously Mac os x runs nicely on intel core 2 duo at 2.66 GHz, I think the stock frequency on the i7 will be fast enough that you won't even notice a difference if you over clock.

    It can be done. But you must access doss settings to speed the core. Warning it may cause battery life to be less and the core will get hot easy
    If used for a long period of time.
