Overclock your Mac mini to as much as 1.58GHz?
February 3, 2005 - Leo Bodnar a Mac mini enthusiast may have found a way to overclock the Mac mini to as much as 1.58GHz. "Just like in any other Mac with 744x CPU, the speed is controlled by the jumpers. Here is the bottom of the board. Or whatever you call it. Many years ago there were component side and solder side. Now I don't know... But before you rush into it, take a look at the size of the jumpers. Read 7447's datasheet if you are interested. Jumpers are located in the area directly under CPU."

The jumper settings suggest to us that there are perhaps some more speed grades of the Mac Mini to come in future months, with up to 1.58GHz apparently being supported by this revision of the board.

So if you're feeling crazy enough to open your Mac mini and remove a few soldered jumpers to gain a couple hunderd MHz, void your warranty and more than likely have an unstable system this news is just for you. We'll pass but its pretty interesting!

I wonder if you pull the jumpers off if there is a way to put them back on?

Looks like a 1.58Ghz G4 will be in the mini before Tiger!

I noticed something else in the Mac mini setup guide... Check the section either at the end or beginning of Appendix A... I forget which, as it talks about the System Profiler...

Check out the screenshot...

1.25 Ghz Mac mini with a 333Mhz System bus? My 1.42Ghz has 167Mhz... and I thought the 1.25Ghz Mac mini had the same...

Maybe a screenshot of what is to come? The date on the photo reads Jan 10 2005.
