Can I overclock the CPU of a Macbook Air?

Recommended Posts

Got my MBA2014 11" (Core i5) few days ago. I'm running Pro Tools on it for home recording/mixing.

I've noticed that my tasks put a heavy demand on CPU performance. But I didn't have the money for a Mackbook Pro. Can I just push it a little bit? And how to if I can? OS is OS X Maverick.

Thanks.

I am thinking the same thing. If you overclock the CPU of MacBook it might overheat. So it is not advisable.

Not only is the stock cooling capabilities not that great on a Macbook Air, Apple has the hardware and software on lockdown so it would be very difficult to make the necessary bios adjustments for stable overclocking.
