    I think the maximum is 4.6GHZ

    I dont think i would want to run one of those at 4.6Ghz on stock air, although thats just a personal observation. Of course you can go higher than 4Ghz, but the life of the CPU will be decreased, just the increase in voltage alone would be enough to do that, follow the link and take a read
