    I was running DroidMod and overclock to 800 mhz, and temp monitor was picking up around 120 F pretty regularly. I went back to stock with no root and did a factory reset, (not just wipe data). Then I went back to DroidMod and overclock to 800 mhz. The temp has been significantly decreased since doing this. This might work for any ROM that is running the cpu a bit hotter, I don't know. I thought I'd post this one here for people to see if it helps other people at all.

    Curious, you went from one version, back to stock, then back to the same version?

    So you are recommending a nandroid data/cache wipe and cache partition wipe as being different from a factory wipe?

    I never thought of this....

    Yes I went from one rom, to stock, factory reset, then back to same rom. Before this I have used a lot of different 2.1 roms and 2.0.1 roms. So I don't know if there was extra stuff just interfereing or what was going on.

    Would you ever do the nandroid WIPE before any of those ROMs?

    I did use the nandroid wipe every time I switched to a new ROM.

    Thank you......I like some ROMS myself...except for the fact that some of my temps are a little higher than my baseline ROM.....

    I'll try it out
