    I have been having issues OCing my Droid lately. If I try to push it at 1 GHz the SD card isn't recognized and I get reboots. Some people have been able to push 1.3 stable with the higher kernals. I'm using ultimate droid 7.5 and Adamz kernal for it.

    Can anyone explain why some people can go higher than others and how I might attempt to? Id like to have 1 - 1.1 GHz stable.

    Not all CPU chips come from the same part of the wafer and this is the main reason I see folks say why one phone runs fine at 1100mhz while another can't get above 900mhz.

    A beginner's guide to overclocking - The Tech Report - Page 1

    Chip fabrication produces large wafers containing hundreds if not thousands of individual chips. These wafers are sliced to separate individual dies, which are then tested to determine which of the manufacturer's offered speed grades they can reach. Some chips are capable of higher speeds than others, and they're sorted accordingly.
