On Tuesday I jumped from the Taz OC 1.1GHZ to 1.3GHZ kernel running SetCPU min 250MHZ/ max 1.3 GHZ w/ondemand settings... have TempMonitor watch both Battery and on CPU temps and see CPU temp idle ~70F to Max 130F when running benchmarks... Seems WELL within chip temp specs... I run a pretty stock setup other than OC kernel, no ROM/Theme installs and use my Cell as primary work phone and secondary work email so pretty heavily... Battery usage hasn't really seemed to change noticebly.
NOTE: you mileage Will vary.... I'd estimate half the folks trying overclocking have been stable over 950MHZ... much smaller percentage at 1.3GHZ so I was one of the lucky one...
Agreed 100% with what you're saying. I'm curently pushing the limits and testing stable @ 1.5 GHz for the last 48Hrs. Core temp is within Specs and Bugless Beast rom is running smooth as silk.
Battery life has not drastically decreased as one would have expected, keeing the batt usage outlined to the daily routine of normal use and limiting the number of APN connections with another program to 3m connects every 15m unless screen is active. I have actually noticed a gain even with the OC.
1.3 wouldn't work on mine, but 1.1 is amazingly stable. I'm happy with that.
