Macpro overclocking tool

June 29, 2008 Leave a comment

ZDNet.de has released a tool for overclocking the Macpro. It’s not a perfect solution and raises some interesting points about how the Mac keeps time, so read the notes before using, especially on a first generation Intel Macpro.

The more interesting point is that this has been released at all. The PC overclocking field is well established but until now there has been little of interest for overclocking Apple Macs. It’s different in the hackintosh realm, where overclocking the Intel Core 2 Duo/Quad is well documented and common. My own hackintosh has been running an overclocked Core 2 Quad 6600 at 3Ghz (up from the stock 2.4Ghz) for several months. This is set from the Bios and doesn’t appear to have any effect on OSx’s timekeeping ability.
