    Just thought id add a little of my findings. I was running the 1ghz ulv kernal and my adroud os was usually at 5%. I switched to 1ghz lv kernal and now android os is at 3%.

    Battery temp seems to be the same. screen off with little to no use in the low 80's, moderate use and I'm in the 90's, heavy use and I'm in the 100's with 105 the top. I use interactive gov.

    I feel like the battery temps are too high, so I'm going to try a mv kernal.

    So, unfortunately you have no choice, but to spend hours testing for the right kernal.

    I know and it really sucks. I'm working 3 jobs right now and it feels like I'm working another full time job trying to find a good kernel that works for me.

    And in theory, shouldn't a kernel that's higher in voltage run hotter too?

    ? what temp should your phone run at my D1 has always been running in the high 80's to mid to high 90's since I got the phone 2 years ago. So I was just wondering what the temp should be...does any one know?

    +1 on this. What is a good/standard temp running range? Or, what ranges of temps do your droids usually run at?

    Have you set up profiles in SetCPU. This can definitely help with battery life and temp. Also I would do a search for the overclocking 101 thread here on droid forum. It really helps. My phone usually runs in the mid 80's to mid 90's and up to 109 with heavy use. I'm running chevys 1.2 lv kernel with no problem. If I remember corectly 120 is about the highest you want to let it get and 140 would cause critical failure. All this is on the over clocking 101 thread.

    I used CPU tuner (free) and I did see some better battery life, but came with it was some major lag and it had a fairly large footprint. Do you notice any perfromance issues with setcpu? I want to make sure its worth using before purchasing.

    I used set cpu for a long time, but with the advancement in kernels and the built in overclocking tool in most roms now I started realizing it really didn't make much of a difference. I started getting tired of the 1 to 2 second delay it took to ramp up the speed when the screen came on. Even if you set priority to 100. I uninstalled it and started using kernels withv the smartass governor and it has acted as if I hade the profiles setup but without the delay when I turn the screen on. Try set cpu if you'd like, it is a great app. I just think you can get better results with the smartass governor and takes up less memory and space.

    I'm still a fan of SetCPU, just for the ease of use with setting up multiple profiles. Ever since I started running the ChevyNo1 1.1 mV with all my profiles set up the way I like them, I've had fantastic performance with more than adequate battery life and no concern as to overheating my phone.

    That was my experience with CPU tuner as well thus why I stopped using it. I was using interactive governor and I'd be lucky if I got 7 hours on a full charge. I'm trying smartass out now, so ill see how it works.

    Smartass is great because when you use you're phone it acts like interactive, but when its not in use it slows down to the minimum!

    Not sure on this, but its to my understanding that the min for smartass is 550 regardless of what you have it set at. Ondemand will actually go to your defined min when not needed.

    I've never heard of that. I've tried the min at 125 but it runs somewhat crappy so I moved the min to 250 and all is great. I think if the lowest possible was 550 it would affect battery life in a negative way.
