    and if you have, is there a real benefit on this phone? the processor is already pretty darn fast on this guy, but i was wondering if anyone had done it for giggles yet.

    I don't believe it can be done yet with the locked bootloader. You can't successfully overclock the stock kernel. I've seen some reports of people trying but not being productive (not much faster at all, reboots, etc.). Someone correct me if I'm wrong though.

    I have heard of people setting the setcpu app to UNDERclock when the phone sleeps to save battery life and I heard that works though.

    Why would anyone want to OC their DX? I mean it gets warm and its battery life is short enough. There's no way to increase cooling, and bumping up the speed is a sure way to cook the innards and have a woefully short battery

    Because we can. I oc my droid from stock to 1.2ghz that is nearly double the out put. had no issue with battery and or heat. and it ran like a chicken with its head chopped of.

    I can't wait to try this out. Post your results if you do!

    This could be interesting. Being a pretty hardcore overclocker on the desktop scene (have a Q6600 that I ran at 3.6ghz pretty consistently with 3-way SLI GTX 285's all OC'ed as well) I know the perils and hazards of overclocking. The idea of overclocking a phone takes those same hazards and turns it upside-down on its head. Strapping an aftermarket beefy cooler on a CPU and slowly pushing voltage was scary enough, pushing voltage on a chip completely encased with no airflow in a tiny package that probably has passive cooling... I'm scared lol

    Doesn't mean I probably won't ever do it though. Maybe down the road when there's some more friendly installation routines (ie - better setCPU support) I'll try it then. But from what I'm reading in that thread things look to be somewhat hopeful for OC'ing our beastly phones. I think once we get Froyo it will be much more clear as to whether or not OC'ing is really worth it.

    I've managed 1.19GHZ at 66VSEL but it only stays stable for about 30 minutes before random reboot. Highest quadrant was 1408. 1.15GHZ would run for about an hour at 36VSEL before random reboot. Highest quadrant was 1403. Ran 1.1GHZ at 30VSEL for about 15 hours before random reboot. Quadrant scores were in the mid 1300's.

    Running 1.0GHZ right now at 30VSEL to experiment with stability and battery life at low voltage. 4.5 hours and no problems so far.

    There are a couple people who have gotten 1.15GHZ to run stable with VSEL's in the 30's.

    1.15 runs stable with a 34vsel. haven't had any reboots at all.
