    Overclocking Worth It?

    Anyone notice any difference from overclocking? I don't want to put extra strain for nothing. I've oc'd before on other devices installing kernals roms and its only seemed to cause problems with minimal increase in speed. Im rooted and on 4.0.4 and have setcpu would I just need to flash a kernel to oc? Or do I need a custom rom?

    SetCPU may be your problem. Last I knew, it wasn't compatible with duo core processors. I don't know if any gain will be noticed at our current processor speeds, but when my OG was running at 1.1GHz, it was noticeable.

    For the gnex? Oveclocking isn't needed. There's minimal gain going from stock (1200mhz) to anything else.

    Setcpu is definitely compatible with dual cores. Its been compatible for months. However, I personally don't really see the need to overclock a 1.2 ghz dual core processor

    I think 1200mhz is the sweet spot. Anything above that and you're sacrificing battery life for minimal performance increase. Happy Modding!

    I've overclocked my Gnex to 1.6Ghz with Franco's kernels and I was not overly impressed with the increase in speed. There was an increase in battery consumption though. Now most of the time I run at either 1 Ghz or 1.2 Ghz. and I undervolt rather severely. My battery life is excellent, the phone is stable and I really don't see any real world drop in speed.

    That's my opinion and I'm sticking with it (well for now anyway!!).

    Yeah I clocked mine up to 1.5ghz temporarily and I just didn't feel like the battery sacrifice was worth it.

    Anyone use SetCPU to save battery? What settings did you see with what configuration.

    All phones will be different since every processor is somewhat different. So adjust speed and voltage with care.
