I'm new to overclocking. But after reading JRummy16's explaination of the hows and why's I think I have a pretty good grasp of how to use his program.

But the one thing I haven't found is what is the maximum heat that you want. We know heat is the enemy. But how hot is too hot. I want to set up some profiles to slow things down as the temp climbs. But I need some advice on where the lines should be.

Use quickclock advanced and have it set the vsel for you and never worry about it getting hot

1.23ghz/Apex 1.4

Thanks Dvan. But that still doesn't answer the question.

Even on stock settings, I find some tasks, like tethering can heat up my phone. So I go back to my original question...how hot is too hot?

Yeah quickclocked is the best, it will set your phone to the best value that your phone can handle. But I've heard u don't want to get over 120 I heard it will do some real damage, I wouldn't want to go over 110, use quickclock its the safest way to get the most out of your phone

The x has a built in anti melt device. If you get too hot the phone will become unresponsive, semi shutoff and go into cool down mode. Normally this will happen at around 120F. Found that out myself.

Stock runs at unnecessary high vsels anyway which is why it gets hot when tethering

I think it's best to keep your battery temp below about 42C. That's the safety mark I use in the stress/calibration portions of QuickClock for example.

I have received that message before that says your phone is too hot and that it's going into "Cool down mode". Scared me at first, but I haven't seen it since.

If your phone spontaneously bursts into flames, it is too hot. :excited:

Oh good i was just about to make a tread titled "What should i do if my DX is on fire???" :big smile:

Since im here though, i use quickclock and its worked great. I like to underclock my phone when im at work and not using it. At 1200 ( BTW is that correct to use, or should it be 1256 or something ??? ) My phone runs quicker then my computer lol, and i dont experience a phone that feels like its battery is about to explode. Im still trying to figure out this whole overclocking stuff, its not like OC-ing a video card, the multiple values confuse me

If you use Quickclock Advanced from the Market, it will test your phone and do all the calculations for you. You can then setup different profiles to use: Battery Saver, Performance, etc...And the developer (Paul) is a here pretty regularly providing support. Can't beat that!

I have tried all of the over clocks so far. I like quickclock the best but I am keeping the Droid Overclock for the temp readings (they seem to be the most accurate). The milestone free app running 1300 80vsel got me the best score on Quadrant though (1769). My question is, using quickclock how do I lower my temp? currently running 96 degrees F on the settings

1300 65vsel
1000 48vsel
800 37vsel
300 13vsel

Running these settings through quadrant gets me 1623. So a step down, but it doesn't reboot my phone.

Stop worrying about your Quadrant scores. If your phone locks up scores are pretty meaningless. Anything under 100*F is fine but I like mine cooler which is why I run at 1200 or 1100.

What is your buffer set at with Quickclock?

Mr.X7

Buffer is at 15.

When I run it on 1200 or 1100, it can still get to 102/105 when I am multi-tasking on my phone.

+1, don't worry about the heat until it's climbing towards 120F.
