    No the only thing ive been worried about is the temps...i think the highest i have seen it go is 107 degrees farenheight...but it gets hot after very little web browsing or maybe 30 minutes on the phone...and were talkin pretty hot. This hasnt been an issue on any other rom but i really like this rom and i wud like to figure out how to fix this issue. If i stream a video or listen to music for a short period of time, it gets really hot and i have to sit it on a cool surface and let it cool down.

    that depends on what kind of performance you need and the setup you have on your device. what works well for someone else...may not work for you. i have found that 400 - 800mhz works well for just about everything i do. i have failsafe set at 50C, to back it down to 250 - 400mhz. however, this could be something totally different for you depending on your use. i would suggest playing around with different settings to find out what works (for you) and be mindful of your temps.

    As mentioned it is really hard to say as every unit and person expects something different. It more or less boils down to trial and error to see what fits your needs. A good place to start and to get some quality info on setCPU is in this thread. Pretty much explains everythign about it.

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/hacking-faqs/47871-overclocking-101-a.html

    First do you clock yours all the way up to 1.0Ghz? Or do you use only some of the lower speeds in that kernel. If you use lower speeds I'd go down to Chevy's 800Mhz file. Secondly I'd also try a lower voltage kernel seeing as you are on medium voltage. That in of itself will be generating more heat being it is medium voltage.

    If it were me I'd download a few of the different kernels and put them in a folder on the sdcard. From there I'd pick the speed of a kernel to use. So lets say it is 1Ghz. First kernel I'd try installing is Chevy's ultra low voltage and see how the device runs or if it will even boot up. A lot of folks can not get away with using the ultra low. If it were not to boot, boot into recovery and then flash his low voltage kernel of the same speed.

    What baseband are you using? I had an issues with the newest baseband killing my battery and causing it to get very hot.

    I haven't run his 800Mhz file myself. So with that said could you posting the different kernel slots it has to choose from so we can make some suggestions.

    Coolio, that helps out a lot.

    I'd start with setting Profiles up like this and then move forward tweaking things after you get an idea how things are going. Oh and I'm assuming you are using the most current version of setCPU 2.0.1

    On the Main Tab I'd go 800 / 600 conservative

    Profiles Tab listing the profiles in this order

    Screen Off 400 / 125 ondemand (you could go 250 / 125 also )
    Charging/Full 400 / 125 ondemand
    Temp > 49c 550 / 250 ondemand
    Battery < 21% 600 / 550 ondemand
    Battery < 51% 700 / 550 ondemand
