Is there a way I can over clock the CPU in my MacBook from 2ghz to say 2.1 or 2.2 ghz? If so how can I achieve this and what Is the maximum my Core Duo system can handle?

I have not heard of anyone doing this...and you probably wouldn't gain much performance by doing it anyway.

Also...have you seen the tons & tons of threads here on Mac-forums where members are concerned about their laptops getting really hot...and the fans screaming at maximum rpms???...well over-clocking the cpu would certainly NOT improve things...in terms of heat & fan speeds!

Want some advice? Leave it where it is at. 100 or 200MHz will make very, very little difference and risk killing the machine.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
