    I'm using the Seido case and holster running at 900 mhz and haven't had any heat issues. I ran the Navigation with the case on for about 20 minutes straight yesterday and couldn't feel any change in the temp. I was actually wondering about this same thing earlier this morning.

    i have a Seidio. i've also put Just In Time compiler library which really didn't help...

    So not much of a difference with JIT? Even overclocked to 1.2 ghz, the Droid's Mflop score is well below the Nexus One's with the CyanogenMod v5.0

    Either dalvikvm was optimized for Nexus one or... JIT kicks ass on Snapdragon. on mine it was almost NO performance gain

    So I wonder if these over-clocking kernels/drivers for the Droid are actually over-clocking the CPU or simply changing the scaling architecture??
    Hmmm... this is very interesting.

    I've said it in other threads before, but I will say it here as well. Outside of academic curiosity, I would strongly discourage people from overclocking their mobile device for normal operation. These devices are nothing like regular computers they dont have the cooling systems necissary to maintain a safe operating temprature.

    The folks who overclock in the lab setting are not testing their systems outside of the room temprature range, try doing that on an 85 degree day with no AC and your toast...yes that was a terrible pun.

    Guys, we know the risks of overclocking. For those who didn't know the risk, I am sure they read one of the dozens of warnings from other people on this forum that have popped up almost daily.

    The thing about overclocking the droid is that they actually over clocking it without messing with the voltage which is probably why there barely is any heat increase. As long you have SetCPU and have scale at 125 as the minimal that you will not see any damage.

    +1. People think electronics are rather fragile items. They will shut off before damage occurs these days, and the odds of that are minute because the voltage is not increasing. Overclocking will show a slow linear temperature increase the higher the Mhz, overvolting will show an exponential increase of temperature.
