    Anyone have SetCPU's minimum above 250mhz?

    I was thinking about bumping the minimum up to 400 mhz but was hoping to get some feedback from others who have tried it. Battery life, temperatures, and speed increase are mainly what I'm interested in. I don't know if it's just my imagination, but everything seems to run a bit smoother when I have the minimum set to 400 mhz instead of 250. Maybe a kernel dev could offer a kernel with something higher than 250mhz but lower than 400mhz if this ends up killing battery life?

    I believe you. I posted about a custom ROM having the min and max both at 1Ghz after I installed it. It made things really quick. Of course I lowered the min to something reasonable.

    I do notice that SetCPU is causing the device to run a little hotter.

    I noticed this since the update. Very strange...

    If I had some time I would look into this more but I think something is up with the SetCPU update.

    It reads the OMAP and the Battery so maybe that is causing the heat issues. I don't know. I'm sure more issues with heat will start popping up.

    Very strange...

    I have my minimum set at 700 Mhz because during normal operation. I just want it ti respond as fast as possible, and my battery life has suffered because of it until I installed juice defender. In the last few days I have had 16 hrs of battery life with the max/min set at 1.3Ghz/700 Mhz. I have my sleep profile set at 550/550. My temp has never gotten above 110F even under heavy load. I highly recommend a high min SetCPU setting with juice defender running. I'm running faster than ever

    Now that you mention it, I posted in another thread my phone got toasty for no apparent reason, and it was the day after I updated to SetCPU 1.5.2....

    I rebooted and it seemed fine since, but i have since reverted back to 1.5.1a just in case...

    I've noticed the same thing since the last SetCPU update. My phone is hitting the fail-safe profile and heating up quicker and a LOT more than it was previously. I used to run it at 1200 all day, and never had a problem. Before the update I had bumped it down to 1 Ghz, and had it running at 800 max, and I NEVER hit the failsafe. Now it seems every 5 minutes under load, I'm seeing the temp notification.

    I have also noticed that my Droid has been running hotter than normal since the setCPU update.

    I run a 400mhz min. 250mhz runs fine but I def notice the difference having 400 as my minimum. Phone wakes faster and I rarely if ever see lag.

    No abnormal temps here since the SetCPU last update......

    Re: Anyone have SetCPU's minimum above 250mhz?

    OK guys I flashed another kernel (bekit ) and changed my profiles.

    So far with testing its been running significantly cooler and better at 1300/700.

    I will monitor battery life to see if the settings effect the battery life adversely. So far its been REALLY good.

    As an fyi I was pdeviously running P3's kernel at 1200/250.

    I need more time to give a definite thumbs up to the higher settings.
