View Full Version : What are your overclock settings?

I feel like there should be a thread started already, but I couldn't find one. I've been researching overclocking because I am about to do it myself. I was just wondering what my fellow DX users are running? What app are you using to overclock?

Cheers!

jrummy's app, settings depend on the phone, some dx's are stable at higher frequencies than others. I set mine at ulv 1.15 and that is the highest I can go on ULV and remain stable.

His app in ultra low voltage isn't actually ultra low... Your stock voltage is 56, 48, 38, 27 his "ultra low" is 5 vesls maybe more than that. Not to dis him, he did make an incredible app, I'm just saying his settings are not for undervolting.

The best I can run and be 100% stable is 1.3 GHz at a crazy 72 vsels. I know I can take it lower I just haven't taken the time... anotherting is it all depends on your device so just play with it...

If someone could educate me on other software I would use it. But im a noob with a dumb-smartphone, so I have to use Milestone. I get about 1333Mhz at 83vsel stable... I wont bore you with benchmark data.

I do it better on p.c.

so if I want to undervolt my phone are there some standard settings to use with jrummy or is another app better?

If you're going to set vsels yourself, then all apps are the same. The jrummy app just has a nicer GUI than other apps. I just use preset values.

theoilman
12-11-2010, 10:31 PM
so then the 1ghz in the ultra low setting would have lower vsels than the 1ghz in the low setting, is that it? and choosing lower ghz also lowers the battery consumption right?

Lower voltage and lower speed will save on battery but it will slow the phone a bit.

1 last question about jrummy- on the first screen mine says "set frequencies at boot" under set scaling frequencies. Does this mean that setting frequencies at boot is enabled (which I don't want)? I try clicking it and it gives me a warning. No matter if I click yes or no it still says set frequencies at boot on the front page. Can I just assume this is off if I click no?

Droid-Xer
12-11-2010, 10:58 PM
Correct click no until you know for sure the settings are ideal for your setup. You can always click back to stock settings, but I prefer to set it myself

I would still use his app because you can use advanced settings where you create your own values and it gives you a template to start so dont worry too much... I beat the hell out of creating and editing .sh files to execute through the emulator...

my phone is running 1300 at low voltage without any problems so far. question though: when people talk about "getting a reboot," do they mean right after they set the frequencies or does it happen anytime within say...a 23hr period?

A random reboot would be getting a reboot doing something you normally did prior to overclocking/undervolting. For example, I was at 1.45ghz running fine until I tried watching a YouTube video in HQ. I would get a reboot every time and prior to this I wouldn't. I dialed down to 1.35 ghz and watched the same video with no problems.

A good stability test seems to be watching flash videos in the browser... that seems to stress the CPU a lot!
Under NORMAL use I can get away with the ULV/LV 1.2GHz preset... when watching flash videos etc. it will crash after a bit on those settings. 1.2 MV works stable no matter what.

I have a 1.0GHz custom profile that I have worked out over a period of time to get the lowest possible stable voltages for each slot. Each phone is different, so if you want to push it to the limit you're going to have to start tweaking :)

Hi, everyone. Sorry for the near duplicate post to the Droid X Overclock thread. In case you didn't see that, I'm running quite stable at 1.3Ghz @ 72vsel on stock 2.2.1 for past 10 days using Milestone Overclock on my 2-week old, z4-rooted Droid X. Avg. quadrant scores about 1675, with a max of 1839. I've also run a 531162ms stress test with setCPU with no errors, and temps have been fine. No random reboots, and graphics are fine. Going to stay in this condition for a while, am considering custom ROMs, but wonder what I have to gain (?).

I'm using Droid Overclock. I'm using low voltage, 1.35 GHz, 1.1 GHz, 900 MHz. However I am not sure on the governance: performance or ondemand. Right now its set for ondemand but has anyone messed around with them and its affects on battery life? Also with the given settings would setting to start up at boot be okay? If not I assume that I would have to manually set it to start after a battery pull or shutdown? Thanks for any imput!

I'm running stock and unrooted, but I feel like sometimes the web browser sometimes gets slow, especially when there's much flash on the screen. Does the browser speed increase significantly when you overclock? I would really like to see a video comparing stock web browsing vs overclocked web browsing

I'm running Fab's ApeX 1.3.0 and first that is an amazing ROM. Phone is responsive and fast and battery life is good. Using the DroidX overclock app and I've been going between 1.2 and 1.3 GHz on the LV setting. Also, I've turned data off after an hour of inactivity in the battery manager setting. All this does is shut down sync when the phone has been idle for 60 straight minutes, and starts it up on wake up. This is saving battery. On quadrant run through, I'm getting about 1600.

I did notice this as well. The stock values look very similar to his UL and Low settings. Moreover, when I use the QuickClock assistant to help me 'discover' the lowest values for a given cpu clocked speed, those voltages are NOTICEABLY lower. Now, I am still using the Low 1.2Ghz setting with profiles on Jrummy's awesome app because it has WORKED PERFECTLY, but I was just curious about the discrepancy.

Please keep in mind that no two processors appear to be alike with these phones. From the info I've gathered, the tolerances for these phones are pretty loose. All that was really required was that they were in spec to 1000MHz.....not to where some of us are pushing things. What works for my phone, may FC yours.....some guys are comfortably running out to 1.450MHz!

Also, with QuickClock, I am able to adjust the buffer number, which I have at 15. I don't remember whether jrummy allows for that.

12-29-2010, 07:39 PM
What does VSEL mean?

VSEL is a voltage coefficient used to calculate the voltage that actually gets used by the phone's CPU, so by adjusting VSEL we are adjusting the resulting, calculated voltages used by the phone at its various scaling points.

quick clock advanced scans your phone and brings you the best settings then after the reboot you just plug in the overclock setting you want, hit calculate, and it figures the best VSEL for your phone. cool stuff for the lazy.

Never one to leave well enough alone I've obviously continued tweaking. I downloaded quick clock and set it to 10% buffer, from there I got the following settings and put them into jrummy app as custom settings and set it to load on boot. Using setcpu for profiles due to jrummy screen off bug. Very pleased with the l stable low voltage numbers

400MHz @ 22 VSEL
850MHz @ 43 VSEL
1000MHz @ 50 VSEL
1250MHz @ 63 VSEL

If you use custom profiles in the app and enable a profile for when your screen is off, it will only load that profile and not come out of it...no matter if your screen is off or not...its been reported on other forums.

Not now, but a few days ago, after I had changed ROM's, and I redownloaded all my apps, the jrummy clocking app asked me to pay again....even though I already had bought the app before. I eventually figured a way around it, but I can see how people could easily pay twice. Haven't had an issue through the updates though. I use QuickClock now, but still run jrummy's widget.

Update out today fixes it I believe.

Applied the update. I still use SetCPU for the profiles and for the analysis it gives the phone...I paid for SetCPU when I had my OG Droid, then purchased JRummy's app and Quickclock for my X. Getting my money's worth :)

To go into more detail on my settings, here are my profiles in case anyone is interested. Explanations are below.

Profiles:
Priority 66, Screen Off, On Demand, 300 Max, 300 Min
Priority 65, Temp > 42.3 C, On Demand, 800 Max, 300 Min
Priority 60, Battery < 21%, On Demand, 800 Max, 300 Min
Priority 55, Battery < 41%, On Demand, 1000 Max,300 Min
Priority 50, Charging/Full, On Demand, 1300 Max,300 Min

Explanations: Basically the priority structure I use ensures that if my screen is off, the phone won't clock above 300mhz. If it gets too hot -above 42.3 C- (which it never does except if it's in the car on the charger and using GPS constantly) it will ALWAYS clock down to 800mhz. Same throttling down applies for 20% and below on battery. Once the battery hits 40%, it won't clock above 1Ghz. If all the other conditions are met and it's either above 40% and/or on a charger, it will clock up to 1300mhz as needed.

Some people have mentioned concerns as to whether or not their phone will receive emails/notifications/etc properly if the phone is set to 300mhz when the screen is off. I have tested this numerous times and gmail is still instantaneous. The webmail for my business is set to check in 5 min intervals and still does so flawlessly at these settings.

I have also been asked why I still use SetCPU even after the JRummy screen off bug has been fixed...I like the detailed readouts and information that SetCPU gives me, particularly the "Time in state" readout under the Info tab. Previously, I had my phone set on Max 800mhz/Min 300Mhz when the screen was off...I noticed that it was spending a lot of time at 800mhz, and felt this was unnecessary, hence the change.

I hope this info helps anyone out there who might be interested in further tweaking their profiles in addition to overclocking/undervolting their phones.

I like jrummys droid x overclock. I've spent alot of time clocking my fone and did alot of research prior to changing setting I suggest u do the same droid x overclock help section will help u alot. Number 1 keep an eye on battery temp and cpu temp. In my opinion battery or cpu temp shud not exceed 120f. If you do for any period of time your fone WILL malfunction. So keep temperatures under 120f. Number 2 if you over or underclock your fone and your apps start acting weird or force close bring ur settings down 1 step and see if the app or apps still misbehave same rule with temperatures my fone works best at ultra low frequency at 1.25 and low frequency at 1.35 if you want to over clock or under start stock and move up 1 step at a time on performance mode keep eye on temp u shud be fine till you find your sweet spot

Priority 33 - Screen On - 1200/350 ondemand

As the battery discharges the phone slows down and extends battery life automatically (or at least that's the plan!)

Ive tested it running everything I can think of all day and its been solid and fast. If I don't have any FC or reboots I'm gonna take the jump to set this as boot settings!

If your dx can run at 1200/58 reliably you should consider yourself lucky.

If u can run overclocked and at such a low voltage, you're not only increasing performance, you're also helping out the battery life. Im at 1200mhz and 61vsel which is also pretty good. The lower the vsel the less strain on the battery.

I'm not overclocked right now since Gummy is running so fast on my phone but I am definitely undervolted like whoa ;)

1000 = 50 vsel
800 = 40 vsel
500 = 26 vsel
300 = 15 vsel

thanks to Droid-Xer for saving me a dollar! lol

Thanks for those settings sgayol. I had only used the presets for ultra low voltage but have since lowered voltage to 59 @1200mhz and all other slots by 4. See how this does on the battery.

I got called a liar on my quadrants so Im going to only say that the scores didn't take a hit!

Edit; Nope. Got reboots. Went to 61

What really does a buffer do?

mikeinrichmond
01-11-2011, 08:14 PM
What really does a buffer do?
Here, from the Quick Clock info:

"Stability Buffer
- The percentage to increase calculated bare minimum pairings. This defaults to 15% (originally 13%, but that proved less stable on 2.2.1).
Bare Minimum Voltage/VSEL (BMV)
- The lowest possible VSEL setting at a given frequency that will not immediately crash the phone. This is not a stable setting, rather it is a point of information used to calibrate the application in conjunction with the Bare Minimum Frequency and Stability Buffer.

Bare Minimum Frequency (BMF)
- The frequency at which the BMV is found. Again, the combination of these two settings does not produce a stable result. That is where the Stability Buffer comes in.

Bare Minimum Pairing (BMP)
- Any BMV & BMF pair. e.g. 15 VSEL @ 300 MHz one for me, but so is 66 VSEL @ 1400 MHz. They both are points at which lowering the VSEL by one would result in an immediate crash."

Marius
01-11-2011, 08:42 PM
Basically when Quickclock determines your lowest VSEL (for each frequency), your phone will not run stable at that VSEL. The buffer is there to provide a bit more voltage to ensure that the phone will run stable.

What works really well is if you overclock the high frequency and undervolt the other ones. Your phone will spend most of the time at 300-400mhz so undervolting your lowest could save some battery life. Quickclock will help you do that of course.

I have a couple different "profiles" I've been toying with. For every day use I use the second one. The first I use mostly when playing certain games and other things that require more processing power. My phone becomes unstable below 15vsl at 300mhz.

For speed..
310mhz. 18vsl
633mhz. 34vsl
934mhz. 50vsl
1250mhz. 66vsl

For battery life..
310mhz. 18vsl
467mhz. 26vsl
633mhz. 34vsl
802mhz. 42vsl

doubleOseven
02-21-2011, 09:46 PM
To go into more detail on my settings, here are my profiles in case anyone is interested. Explanations are below.

Profiles:
Priority 66, Screen Off, On Demand, 300 Max, 300 Min
Priority 65, Temp > 42.3 C, On Demand, 800 Max, 300 Min
Priority 60, Battery < 21%, On Demand, 800 Max, 300 Min
Priority 55, Battery < 41%, On Demand, 1000 Max,300 Min
Priority 50, Charging/Full, On Demand, 1300 Max,300 Min

Explanations: Basically the priority structure I use ensures that if my screen is off, the phone won't clock above 300mhz. If it gets too hot -above 42.3 C- (which it never does except if it's in the car on the charger and using GPS constantly) it will ALWAYS clock down to 800mhz. Same throttling down applies for 20% and below on battery. Once the battery hits 40%, it won't clock above 1Ghz. If all the other conditions are met and it's either above 40% and/or on a charger, it will clock up to 1300mhz as needed.

Some people have mentioned concerns as to whether or not their phone will receive emails/notifications/etc properly if the phone is set to 300mhz when the screen is off. I have tested this numerous times and gmail is still instantaneous. The webmail for my business is set to check in 5 min intervals and still does so flawlessly at these settings.

I have also been asked why I still use SetCPU even after the JRummy screen off bug has been fixed...I like the detailed readouts and information that SetCPU gives me, particularly the "Time in state" readout under the Info tab. Previously, I had my phone set on Max 800mhz/Min 300Mhz when the screen was off...I noticed that it was spending a lot of time at 800mhz, and felt this was unnecessary, hence the change.

I hope this info helps anyone out there who might be interested in further tweaking their profiles in addition to overclocking/undervolting their phones.

Thanks, these settings are great, however I noticed a few logic errors in the way you set up the profiles and their conditions. For example, "Screen Off" has the highest priority. This is good, except that once activated, nothing can override the setting after you turn the screen back on. IOW, there needs to be a condition "Screen On" set to full power, to tell the app when you want full power to return. Another contradiction is "Charging/Full", it serves no purpose because all the other conditions have a higher priority. So, when the battery is between 21 and 41%, even if you plugged the phone in it would remain in the "Battery < 41%" profile until the battery got charged over 41%. To remedy this, you could give"Charging/Full" a priority between "Battery <41%" and "Battery < 21%".
Thus, if the battery is low it will scale down the cpu, and you plug it in, you can still benefit from the full power of the cpu :)

Here is what I ended up doing:

Profiles:
Priority 66, Screen Off, Performance, 300 Max, 300 Min
Priority 65, Temp > 42.3 C, On Demand, 800 Max, 300 Min
Priority 60, Battery < 21%, On Demand, 800 Max, 300 Min
Priority 55, Charging/Full, On Demand, 1300 Max,300 Min
Priority 50, Battery < 41%, On Demand, 1000 Max,300 Min
Priority 49, Screen On, On Demand, 1300 Max,300 Min

Well that's all good, but i'm using droid x overclock, which seems to require both 'on' and 'off' conditions. But I was making a point about the priority settings, in case anyone else was having trouble getting the profiles feature to work. To be more concise, if you create a BOOLEAN profile with a high priority that overrides all the other profiles, you will have to create a reciprocal profile for that condition.

I would be interested to know how SetCPU takes care of this problem, because I believe it was an issue in previous versions of Droid overclock and the addition of the "Screen On" profile was essentially a patch.

ok can someone tell me something..i rooted my x and im overclocked. my quadrant result was a 1618 and my setcpu is at 1300mhz. is that safe? I dont want to fry my phone. so far its just gotten hot, it seems pretty stable.

How hot does it get? I normally set my Max to 1.25ghz and it runs smooth at about 62vsel

No I do not like seeing mine in the 3 digit range. It will shut down if it gets too hot. Review your overclock settings. Just because you CAN does not mean you SHOULD. ;)

Yeah 127 is too high! Lower your voltage coefficients, and if that causes your phone to be unstable, lower your frequency settings accordingly.

I'm running the same max frequency as you, 1300Mhz, but my vsel for that frequency is at 66. But like the discussion in this thread mentioned, your phone's chip is unique and you have to take the time to find the right combination of Mhz and vsel for each slot.

edit: Btw, your not going to "fry" your droid, and i believe it has built in thresholds that shut it down if the temp is too high. My main concern with 127F would be the increased thermal stressing (heating up and then cooling back down) of the chip over a period of time (years). The question is, how long do you want your dx to last? If your sending it back to VZ in 15 days, overclock the *$#@ out of it! :big smile:

SetCPU is the best for beginners cause it diagnoses your chip and generates the correct vsel, but i'm a beginner who enjoys experiments so i use jrummy's Droid Overclock (1.98 in market).

SetCPU does not overclock

If you mean Quickclock Umm it can do more than the rummy app... minus a widget. It has newbie mode and a full editor.

Sorry, yes i meant Quickclock. But if you knew, why didn't you post an answer yourself? :disappointed:

I'm new as well, but like I said, I use Jrummy's Droid Overclock and it has enough documentation with it for newbies like us to figure out how to use it. If you wanna spend more $ for an easier user experience, go with Quickclock (~2.75 in market) Or if you really don't want to haul out the old credit card, you can get Droid Overclock for free by downloading the Liberty Rom (Forum > Droid X Development > Droid X ROMs > Liberty) because it's bundled in there for free!

The problem with Jrummies is you have to find your VSEL settings yourself which could take a while if you have no idea what YOUR particular phone can run. QCA does that function in like 5 minutes and a reboot.

Quick Clock and Jrummy's app, both purchased and yet both not in use.

fooled around with and and realized that everything runs better on stock.

By "runs better" you must mean "doesn't occasionally crash." But figuring out WHEN it crashes is part of the process of finding the right settings to leave it at long term. Granted, this process may not be for everyone, but it's inaccurate to say your phone "runs better" at 1000 Mhz than it would at a higher frequency, like 1300 Mhz for example.

If you still don't believe this, open Droid overclock, set it on its medium voltage 1300 Mhz preset, set max events to 65, (extras > build properties > max events) and after rebooting, scroll through any list of items such as app manager, market, or even this forum. I promise you will notice a difference!

ok so i just downloaded quickclock to try in stead of jrummies. i did the calibration and then went to set the overclock, what do i do? this is kind of confusing to me honestly.

I feel like there should be a thread started already, but I couldn't find one. I've been researching overclocking because I am about to do it myself. I was just wondering what my fellow DX users are running? What app are you using to overclock?

Cheers!

I'm using Jrummy's DroidOverclock at LV/1.3GHz on Fab's Apex 1.3.1 ROM. Benchmark at 1704 and stable as the stock rom/settings. Faster than all hell too.

If you calibrated the app, go to overclock. Put in your overclock speeds (mine are (300, 600, 1000, 1300). Then hit calculate. It will set your vsel for you. Then hit set cpu. Go to advanced and tap boot. You can set these OC speeds to go into effect on boot.

I believe DD has a you tube video that demonstrates how to use the quickclock advanced app. (That is what i used to take the jump! Thanks, btw). Search for it, and it will walk you thru the process. Within the 'overclock' menu, you can select your 'profile' (Iam using battery saver currently), then click set cpu. If you find you are stable, go into the advanced settings and click 'boot' to set your settings for when you reboot.

I'm using quick clock. Love it. It made my phone real unstable at first, but after a calibrate, then go in and adjust bmv up a couple points, a suggested by the dev, the phone is super stable right now, and running on battery saver with 900mhz max at 50 vsel and 300mhz low side at 18vsel. So far I'm 16 hours off the charger and at 70% still. That's pretty good if you ask me for some good usage of it throughout the day.
Best part, its not any slower than stock at these levels.

i got rid of OC. it doesnt seem to me that the pros outway the cons of less battery life. I will check out the Apex OC and see what my ideal settings are. maybe im just setting it too high.

My settings min 300@ 15, max 900 @ 45. Still very smooth/fast, and great battery life. When I need more performance (Which i have not had to do yet...), I can switch from battery saver setting to high speed at the click of a button.
