Overclocking Macbook Pro 13

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I have a 13in Macbook pro 2009 model. It has a Core 2 Duo at 2.53GHZ and Nvidia Geforce 9400M Graphics chip with 256mb DDR3. Also has 4gb DDR3 1067mhz ram and a 500gb 5400rpm HDD.

I have already overclocked my GPU using MSI Afterburner which worked perfectly the first time with no artifacts, but now I am looking to overclock the cpu. Also I was wondering if there is any programs that work for overclocking on the mac partition, it takes a long time to switch over to windows partition and being as Steam now works on macintosh OS, I would like to be able to play my games without having to switch partitions.

And for those of you who are going to post saying I am frying my laptop and cutting years off the lifespan, think again because the macbook pro has a one piece back plate that comes off with the removal of a few screws, combine that with my Zalman notebook cooler and I get nice cool temps, 62 celcius on gpu temp with it overclocked as compared to 85 celcius with the backplate on and only the stock fan to cool the computer.

If anyone has any ideas on how to do any of the things I said above, please tell me! Thanks everyone!

IIRC, MacBook's fry when you game, or just put the CPU @ full load. You DO NOT want to OC a MB. Even if You could, which I doubt, since the majority of PC laptops can't be OC'ed never mind a Mac.

As a past owner of an Aluminum Unibody Macbook 13" I agree with the above post.
A GPU Overclock is possible (if ill advised) but the CPU and CPU share the same heatpipe. Overclocking 1 will raise your temps on the other. OVerclocking both is a suicide run.
The Macbook can already barley cool its self well enough under load @ Stock. Overclocking the GPU is doable, Overclocking both is asking for applecare.

Not to mention. If memory serves SetFSB doesn't recognize 99% of Mac Hardware anyway. And that would really be your only way of OCing the CPU on a macbook.

Rebooting to the other partition is annoying but unscrewing the rear panel of your computer repeatedly isn't? headscratch.gif

On a serious note, have you tried re-applying the thermal compound? My girlfriends macbook air couldn't even watch youtube videos without overheating. Her hard drive recently failed and while I had it taken apart I decided to replace the thermal compound with some Arctic Silver 5 I had left over.

What I found was shocking. Mac easily used 10 times too much thermal compound. That could even be an understatement. It was absolutely ridiculous. In addition to that it was a completely dry chalky substance. Here is a picture of a macbook air taken apart to show what I mean.

If your macbook pro is anything like her air was then you should see a decrease in temps by replacing the compound. I improved her temps by over 10 C. It used to hit 95 C after just 5 minutes of youtube... Now it stays in the 70s and at least runs smoothly.

Eww... You'd think for a $2000+ computer you'd get some quality. Guess Apple just figures that all the Hipsters will go running to a "Genius" whenever they have a problem and never see the guts of their machine.

I understand EXACTLY what you mean by the heat output by macbooks, but that is why I sit it on my cooling dock if i want to overclock the gpu. Without the cooling dock i am in the 85 celcius range, with it and the back panel off it stays nice and cool at around 62 celcius and thats while gaming. If I had an older model that did not have the one piece rear panel then I would never think about overclocking, it would die in about a year.

For Steam games on Mac You need to buy the Mac versions. As for OC'ing not gonna happen. But use ThrottleStop (when your in Windows) to Undervolt the CPU for less heat.

Actually your wrong man, I originally bought all my steam games on windows of course so i have all the source games. All i did was download steam on my macbook ON the mac partition and no extra purchase necessary, your games work the same on either system as long as they are rated for both OS's
