Overclocking with Mac

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Greetings fellas!

I have been doing some reading about how to overclock with Intel. I know the steps to overclock and such but I do not know what program to stress the computer and what to use to monitor the temperature? Does anyone know or have any suggestions?

Intel Burn Test, Prime 95, OCCT, Orthos. All applications for stress testing and some are also available for Mac but how in the world did you manage to overclock a Mac to start??

IBT is offered for Mac, that I know.

Well it's not a Mac, it's a "mac," in my sig rig. Sorry I won't discuss further since it's not allowed here. But thank you @above. I'll check out those programs. I am familiar with Windows but just recently flipped the switch.
