Hi there all,

I am building a new hackintosh and wondering if I will be able to overclock the CPU like you can on Windows.
Below are the proposed components. Would someone be able to give me some advice on this please.

Thanks

Yes, you will be able to overclock. You will probably want to dual-boot Windows, because I don't know of any stress-testing software that runs on Mac OS X, but overclocking in the BIOS is certainly possible. It's the exact same process as for a Windows PC.

You do your overclocking in BIOS anyway so any OS will work for overclocking.As for stress testing there is prime95 for Mac too.Google it.
