    I am loving RaidZero kernels. They seem to run very well on any rom. Links to his GB and Froyo kernels are in my sig if anyone wants to try them out.

    Rename it to update.zip or update (if Windows 7) and flash like a ROM....

    RZ's kernels are EXCELLENT. I also suggest his RZRecovery. If you like SPRecovery you'll love his recovery.

    Been running RZrecovery for several weeks now. Much more user freindly than SP (I was long time user). So far very stable so far. Flashed several ROMs...btw to get back on topic I'm using stock kernel. Curious about getting better battery life...that's how I ended up reading this thread!

    His recovery is awesome! The only one I have seen that allows charging, and overclocking. It is my favorite recovery by far.

    As seems to be a common trend, rz's kernals are running great for me as well. Much cooler and just as fast as slayhers for me. Chevy's run super cool but not quite as smoothly in my experience.

    I flashed the RZ lv1000 kernel and it was super smooth/fast but I was not getting the battery life I was hoping for... I've switch back to using the Sapphire kernels here... http://sapphire.ccroms.net/wiki/releases/sapphire-1.1.0 ... super fast like the RZ kernels and really good on battery... plus they stay pretty cool too, currently running the LV125-1000

    I dont really worry too much about running hot enough to damage anything since the CPU and battery are rated safe upwards of 60C. But to answer your question I like to keep the CPU temp under 45C if possible. If I'm consistently getting close to 50C I usually go down in frequency. I have noticed however that with the lower voltage kernals out there the temps seem to have a bigger range than medium voltage kernals. For example with a lv or ulv kernal my temps will start very low, often in the 20s, but will ramp up to the low 40s fairly quickly under high stress. However with mv kernals my temps will hover just under 40C regardless of work load.

    Right on thanx. I just never got a clear answer from anyone. I dont think my batt has ever hit 45+ so thats good. I do however start shutting her down if it gets up to 40. By then I am usually done and just surfing around.

    If your only getting up to around 40 you're good to go. If you prefer lower temps that's fine but I assure you temps lower than 50 are completely safe. Even if they are a bit un-nerving. As as said before. I like to keep mine at 45 or lower but other than that I don't worry to much about it.

    I use Chevy's ulv 1.0gz and check CPU temperature w/ setcpu. Always keep it at 40c usually around 30c. Anything above that just feels too hot on the phone.

    FEELS too hot and IS too hot are not necessarily the same thing. But I agree, for my own piece of mind I prefer to keep my temps under 40C as well. However, 45ish is 100% safe
