anyone tried pin-ground OCing like has been done on the Dells? i'd imagine that's the way to go.

Course without anyone having really tested the Core Duos we don't know remotly what they can do thus pin-ground OCing gets really trickey

I just saw a commercial from Intel saying Mac will have Intell cpu's in them soon.

Maybe these computers were already compatible with there cpu's :p:
