I just bought these this weekend myself and have also been wondering how hot is too hot, and why set CPU isn't using the CPU's temp sensor.
Yea I forgot to mention that, thanks.
To enable CPU temp, open Temp Monitor > Scroll down to the header "Tasmanian_Droid Overdrive Settings" > CPU Temp Notification (check it)
I also recommend checking "Enable Notification" and "Start on boot" so the numerical value displays in the top tray so you can keep an eye on it for the more aggressive overclockers.
anything less than 120F is quite alright AFAIK when Im messing around with it It will usually be between 100 and 120, after playing games for awhile (or something else cpu intensive) while charging Ive seen it at 140F last week I had it OC'd to 1.1ghz and had it charging via the USB port and then one of my friends called me and I picked up the phone and it was pretty damn hot, the outside of the case was probably around 120F because it was hot to the touch and was really hot up against my face when I checked the temp it was around 170F!! I immediately removed the battery and let it cool down for a few minutes and she still works fine.
164F is the best I've done, had it charging in the car dock running maps with the hot sun beating down on the dash.
I can see myself with overheating issues come summer when the sun is trying to kill everything and trying to get maps going on the dash. I need to get that low Voltage Kernel going.
what do you have to do to get that low volt kernel? i already have smoked glass rom and everything that comes with it can i just install adamz kernel on top of it or is it more complicated then that?
