Is anyone running overclock? The latest franco kernel will let you go up to 3 GHz, but I'm no pioneer. So has anyone ramped up yet? Pluses? Negatives? Incredibly AWESOME findings? O_O

When we over clock PCs, we get larger heat sinks, fans, etc. You dont have that luxury with a phone.
There is a video of a guy who fried his phone overclocking it.
The n5 is plenty fast. Stick to using custom kernels for sleep to wake features , double tap , etc.
Just my 2 cents

I'm using the latest Franco Kernel and have not overclocked. It's good for those people wanting more out of the device.
Op, have you?

Personally, I don't feel a need to OC the Nexus 5 since it sits really smooth where it's at with the default settings included with Franco Kernel. I used to OC my Heroc, GS2 and Tab 10.1 (OG) and never had problems if the OC was kept conservative. Still, you do run the risk of negative effects if you decide to kick the device up a notch.

I just get this overclocking on phones.....The phone is fast enough as stock. Creating more heat is not good for the battery. I guess the only reason to oc is for benchmarks???? Maybe getting that extra FPS on candy crush?
