    You need to flash a kernel that allows overclocking (try one of Chevy or AdamZ's kernels), then download setcpu from the market.

    I do. I have Chevy LV 1.25 Ghz. I'm running UD 9.8 (going to v10 as soon as I am off work)

    In that case SetCPU is the only app that can change your CPU clock speeds (AFAIK). It's pretty much required for overclocking/underclocking lol

    I heard something about getting my phone to hot? Is there something I can use to monitor it or help it?

    Yup, Temp Monitor (also on the market) can display battery temp/CPU temps in your notification bar. It's handy for trying out new kernels. I usually disable it though once I find that the kernel is good and runs at acceptable ranges.
