Haha thanks guys, I get it now :]
I knew what voltage was, literally, but not like... what it specifically meant as far as kernels go, as it being I am still relatively new to this whole shabang. I'm getting the hang of it though! I'm guessing that the lower the voltage, more battery life and less satisfactory performance and vice versa? I remember being on ChevyNo1's HV 1.25Ghz kernel a long time ago and iit was great, but my battery barely lasted for any more than 4 hours and overheated often to the point where the device rebooted itself out of nowhere.
Now I'm on P3Droid's 1.25Ghz LV kernel... I'd go for ULV but I'll experiment with it, since every phone is different... I mean, its not like there aren't 10,000,000 FroYo kernels out there. LOL.

phone speed has nothing to do with voltage. that's only governed by clock speed. it's like gas. if you put more gas in your car, your car won't go faster, but if you run out of gas, the car won't go at all. so if your voltage is too low for your hardware to handle, then things will start to crap out.
I hate to add more to the mix, but it is important to note that performance does not always correlate with higher processing speeds. Sure, your phone can be blazing fast at running calculations, but if you get homescreen redraws and lags, then you wind up wasting more time.
Anyway, I get the best performance with an 800 MHz kernel (specifically: Chevy's 800LV). I can run his 1.25GHz with no problem, and my Quadrant scores go through the roof. Yet, my phone is truly snappier with the 800: applications open faster, orientation changes are faster, I get no redraws, etc.
So try some lower kernels too, you may be pleasantly surprised!
First of all, I'm not knowledgable on this specifically, but I thought I remember reading somewhere......
For example, the chevyno1 new 7 slot kernels, i read on a post somewhere that it's better to pick a kernel that is closest to your max clock speed. so for example you would get better performance or atleast things would run smoother if you use 800 Mhz on a 800 Mhz kernel as opposed to using 800Mhz on a 1.1 Ghz kernel. They said it's because if you use 800 Mhz max on a 1.1 Ghz kernel, you are not using all 7 slots. I can't back this up, but I remember reading this somewhere. maybe someone can give more advice than me. I am kind of curious about this as well, but I haven't put much effort into looking into it though.
[8-1-2010] New Froyo Kernels - CPU Temp Monitoring is Back!
look at post #111 by Phreaker47. i don't know if that post is correct, but I figured i would give you the link were i seen it.
Also i got this link from kennydied23...
Links to Froyo Roms and Kernels and Baseband Updates [Source+Leaks]
it has links to various roms and kernels for froyo. i don't know if one of the kernel links would have more information about the above or not.
