Hi everyone!


Last year I bought a second hand macbook 4.1.

It had some obvious signs of missuse: The battery was swollen and the screen was broken. It also didn't had the original power adaptor.

I always found it strange that the fans never turned on even when both cores were at a 100% load for a long time and the temperature never went over 60C.

So yesterday I installed Coolbook and found out that the CPU never goes over 1.2Ghz. I tried to change the settings. but with no effect.


Does anyone know how can I "overclock" my Macbook 13?

The idea is of course restore it to it's factory settings.

MacBook, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
