Optimus V won't overclock past 784...
So, I had flashed the most current version of aospCMod, and everything was running well...until I tried to overclock. My phone began to freeze up, and I realized that I'm only stable (at least with this rom) up to 784 (or at least I think that was the number). I'm not able to get above 800, or the phone freezes. My question is, should I just go back and try to get another one from Best Buy, or should I simply try something else out? I was pretty pissed...

This topic has been discussed ad-nauseum in this forum. Your stable overclock speed has nothing to do with the kernel. It has to do with the actualy chip on your phone. Each chip is different. They are all set to clock to 600. The fact that you can overclock at all is a bonus. You could try exchanging your phone until you find one that can overclock higher, but a new kernel, a new ROM, a new sticker on the back, is not going to get you a higher overlock speed on the phone you've got.

Overclocking is mostly hardware limited. I am only stable to 806, and thats the same on all ROMS. Not all CPUs are created equal, some are capable of higher speeds, some not. You can even get a processor that can't overclock at ALL. Sometimes, a tweak here or there with the kernel can help. Often voltage changes can help, but that can be dangerous.

Not true a change in the kernel could allow a more stable overclock. Your phone may require a little more voltage to get past 784 versus someone else. Same as a desktop PC. Same as on my old moto droid.
Not that you would see the difference really.
I am actually hoping the kernel writers can under-volt the processors a little I would rather have better battery life.
