I recently picked up a 366mhz clamshell with firewire off of ebay for pretty cheap. it's in great condition for being as old as it is. I popped in a 512MB SODIMM, and was pretty happy with the results. I want MORE . i found several guides to overclocking the rev A ibooks (300mhz), so i popped open the case (not as hard as some make it out to be), and got down the to logic board and much to my dismay the board is different than the ones shown in the overclocking guides. its a ppc750cx processor. anyone know if i could oc this computer and how? i'd really appreciate it.
Yes, it can be overclocked. Nice buy, by the way. Those are sturdy books that last. There are several mac overclocking sites out there. Try Google. I will check the ones I know of and get back to you (im at work now).
Yeah, you can overclock it. However, if you intend for it to stay a stable laptop, you won't be able to boost it like you will a desktop (for obvious cooling reasons). I'll be interested to see how far you can jack it before you start melting plastic.
As to [i}how[/i], I'll have to get back to you on that. I'm supposed to be doing work right now...

Later this afternoon I will post some links for you. Did you try the links on this site? He is write, dont go to far-I think I would be happy with 400mhz. Remember too that you will be sucking up more batteries. Make sure you weigh the +s and -s before you decide to do it. -maestro
yes i've tried all the links i can find. they are all for the original non-firewire ibook. the logic board in my ibook is extremely different from the one in the pictures in those links. i think the fact that it has a 750cx-e instead of the 750cx has a lot to do with that...
I am looking to figure this out as well. I also have a 366 mhz ibook and really want to overclock it, has anyone figured it out? I have looked at the board and believe that the area for resistor movement is in the area of resistors marked R59 - R66.
