    Why one would want to overclock a Mac Mini (specially if it already runs The Lightning OS) is well beyond me...

    there' s a true performance benefit in overclocking a 1,5ghz mini to 1,8ghz (max you can reach). It's simply faster. Now it's not about the OS but the apps, some ressource hungry apps (Mame, some demos, some games, encoding tools etc.) would benefit from it.

    Now it has some downsides, especially about the noise, a 1,8ghz overclocked macmini is pretty noisy, the fan being blowing all the time. And some macmini work very well at 1,8, some get unstable.
