Overclocking G4's

in Future Apple Hardware edited January 2014
Does anybody know if G4/G3's are overclockable... I've got a Pc <img src="graemlins/embarrassed.gif" border="0" alt="[Embarrassed]" /> for my schoolwork (learning VBA....) and I was able to over**** my AMD athlon 1.2 Ghz to about 1.4 Ghz (Got a heavy air-cooler and a huge heatsink)

Is there anything like this posible with Mac-processors?

    Its possible but you need some good soldering equipment and skills to do so. Overclocking the G4s requires rearranging some tiny surface-mount resistors on the CPU daughter-card.
