Overclock Macbook Pro 15" 2.16Ghz Model

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, been reading around through every post I can find about overclocking macbook pros. I've OC'd the CPU AND GPU in windows to stupid levels(used a ton of extra cooling), and now I want to work on OC in OSX. The GPU OC carries over, but now I need some brainstorming on how to overclock the CPU in OSX.

My idea is to dual boot both windows and osx at the same time, then just shut down the windows side without rebooting the OSX side, do you guys think that would work? Or would my windows cpu OC just go down with windows? Do you think I could just set up the windows virtual machine to use very little ram and processing power to the point where it would be like having it off? What if I use something like tinyxp or a small footprint version of windows? Penny for your thoughts?

TO EVERYONE ABOUT TO TELL ME I'M GOING TO FRY MY MAC derp hurp derr. I don't care, I don't need this computer, I don't want it, I don't like it, this is just a PUZZLE I'm trying to figure out for my own enjoyment, when all is said and done or I fry the board I will put the whole thing in an oven and melt it down into a decorative lump or shoot it with my ak47. IT'S A DISPOSABLE COMPUTER I WANT IT TO FRY.

So if anyone has some good ideas, I'd love to hear em! Thanks so much.

Smells like a troll.

In case you're serious: Give it to someone who actually needs it, instead of wasting a perfectly working laptop for "your own enjoyment".

If you don't know how to help or have useful input then you sir are the troll. It has almost no resale value and sating my curiosity is my motivation. This is literally the state this thing is in. while being used. It's a perfect candidate for an OC experiment.
