things you should know about overclocking
ive seen quite a few posts about this. and quite a few posts about heating phones.
maybe this is a bug that can be worked out, but i feel that people should be aware what overclocking is doing to your phone.
1. this phone was made to run 550mhz. i am sure motorola tested 560, 570, ect. they put it out at that bc thats what is stable. you know they wanted to put out the fastest phone they could too.
2. anyone who has built a computer would know overclocking is fine if you can properly cool the chip. there are no fans in our phones, so realize, the heat you feel on the outside is far more intense on the inside. which leads me to,
3. heat is the #1 killer of electronics, plain and simple, there are no restore points on a burnt chip. just bc it hasnt happened yet, does not mean it will never happen.
i am not saying dont overclock it, but maxing it out alot may hurt your phone for good.
im sorry if ive said the same thing in a few threads but to save me from saying it again i posted a thread.
mind you i have fooled around with it up to 600 and as long as you dont tether or multitask, aside from music. i have not noticed that much more than ive noticed before we could overclock.
my friend who is very smart with computers is gonna bring over one of the stickers like on fish tanks and im gonna put it on the back of my droid. you can also tell the temp with some apps but the apps will dilute my little test im doing.
