Leo Bodnar has found a way to up the CPU speed by overclocking Apple’s new Mac Mini. Apple controls the system speed on its boards with simple jumpers and Bodnar has posted a web page describing the process. By disassembling his 1.25GHz Mac mini, Bodnar altered the jumpers and boosted it to 1.42GHz speed.
The jumper settings suggest that there are obviously Mac Mini speed bumps to come in the future (when hasn’t Apple speed bumped any Mac in recent memory?), as Bodnar thinks 1.42GHz mini owners may be able to comfortably boost their minis up to 1.5GHz, with up to 1.58GHz jumper settings being supported by the current Mac mini’s board.
