For Intel Macs, I'm still looking for what could be the fix. I know my early MacBook Pro doesn't give me issues, but I have seen issues with it before.

I do know of some overclocking software for mac, but due to the design of the computer, I'm very hesitant to say it's a good idea, because while they do cool well, over time, with the fans running faster, it will fill with dust, and eventually start to get hotter and hotter.

Macs have begun to use the Intel Speedstep technologies, but only because the new CPUs are just insanely hot for stock speeds. Getting around that is going to be harder and harder because Macs are less mainstream than PCs when it comes to modding and overclocking.
