Overclock your Mac mini to as much as 1.58GHz?
Thursday 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 upgrades 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 still pretty interesting!
